Educational psychologists work with children and adolescents, assisting in their psychological adjustment and development. They operate within the contexts of family, school, peer groups and communities, and are able to conduct and interpret scholastic and psychometric tests. They hold Master’s Degrees in Educational Psychology and are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa.
I am passionate about working within a therapeutic setting with children of all ages. Thus, my therapeutic interventions focus primarily on play therapy for younger children and individual therapy for adolescents. Furthermore, I acknowledge that understanding and working systemically with the child is significant. Hence, the child is viewed in relation to their individual family system as well as their social context which encompasses their school, peer and community for example.
I hold respect for clients in the highest regard and always endeavour to create a safe therapeutic space within my Private Practice based in Parkhurst, Johannesburg.
