I am a registered Social Worker with the South African Council of Social Services Professionals. I studied through UNISA and obtained a Bachelor of Social Work and a Bachelor of Arts Honours in Psychology .I further completed a Certificate in Industrial and Organizational Psychology through the Centre for Applied Psychology also at UNISA. I am currently studying for Masters in Social Worker:Play Based Therapy with the University of Pretoria.I am continuously participating in continued professional development workshops and trainings. I am passionate about helping people realise their resilience and ability to bounce back from every hardship in life. I believe every individual has the inherent ability to overcome the challenges of life. When an individual is in an environment that is not threatening but conducive, they are able to tap into their inner resources and take control of their life.
