As an Educational Psychologist, I believe that psychological intervention is a shift in perspective and understanding; allowing us the opportunity to the wonder and goodness within ourselves and our children. In order for the therapeutic process to be most effective, a holistic approach within a child’s life must be adopted; working with children, teachers and parents to best understand key areas of development and their associated behaviours. Therefore, my practice focuses on the well-being of children but is not limited to their individual role in their learning and development.
I completed my Masters in Educational Psychology in 2015; graduating from the University of the Witswatersrand in 2015. Psychology was always my passion however, after completing my honours in Psychology in 2012 I was uncertain as to which specialization I wanted to pursue. During 2013 I completed my PGCE in intermediate phase education and taught at St.Sithians Boys Preparatory as a Locum for that year. During that time I discovered that as much as I love education, I could not give my undivided attention and assistance to those who needed it most in the classroom. And So began my journey into Educational Psychology. I have a great deal of interest an passion in development of children and all the factors which contribute to this amazing journey from birth to adulthood.
In January 2018, I joined the team at EDU360 Integrated Remedial Education as head of Learning Support. I am thrilled to be able to be able to have the best of both worlds, in Private Practice as well as being a part of this fantastic and unique institution.
I continue to develop myself both personally and professionally, and believe that learning and development does not stop once you become a professional. Currently I am completing my final year of training in Sandplay Therapy with the International Society of Sandplay Therapy and hope to make this my primary modality of therapy in the near future.
