Professional registrations and memberships (HPCSA, HCPC(UK); BPS (chartered psychologist) divisions of educational and child psychology and neuropsychology.
My educational psychology practise is based on my passion for children and adolescents who struggle academically, socially and behaviourally. A main focus area is the support after the initial assessment and providing solutions to the “diagnosis” or challenges that may have been identified in the assessment process.
My time is divided between South Africa and the United Kingdom where I am also professionally registered. My interest in neuropsychology ensures that my assessments conclude more than just “results”. In order to provide solutions we need to find answers to “why?” the child gives the outputs and behaviours that he/she does.
My practise from 2013, although based in Cape Town, South Africa, is not restricted to this area. I have embraced the mobility and resources that are available through technology which has enabled me to have an active practise not defined by “geographical boundaries”. In this respect my contact is through this contact form only.
