About Me

I hold a Masters degree in Educational Psychology (University of Pretoria) and is a registered Educational Psychologist with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (PS 0040223). I have twenty four years of experience in the field of child psychology, assessment (educational and emotional), psychotherapy, parental guidance and career guidance.

I started my career at the University of Johannesburg’s Institute for Child and Parental Guidance in 1993. Psychological assessments, career guidance, psychotherapy, counseling and parental guidance were part of the services offered to parents and their children. Thereafter I worked at Gauteng’s Educational Aid Centres as an educational specialist.

In 1997 I worked as a school psychologist at Sonitus School for the Hard of Hearing. I locumed at Procare, an organization for social workers and psychologists in private practice, where I mainly worked therapeutically with sexually abused girls and children who went through a divorce and did hypnotherapy with teenagers and adults.

In 2006, I decided to relocate to the Cape and started to work at the Centre for Student Counseling and Development, Stellenbosch University. From 2007 I worked at the Centre for Prospective Students (Stellenbosch University) where I focused mainly on career and subject choice assessment and counseling. I worked in schools throughout the Western Cape (such as Jan van Riebeeck, Boys High and Settlers) offering these services in group context to learners and their parents.

Throughout my career I have grown increasingly interested in the field of hypnotherapy. I am therefore able to help clients therapeutically through hypnosis, and has further completed training in ego state, Eriksonian and medical hypnotherapy.

Apart from hypnotherapy, my fields of expertise are play therapy, career guidance, psycho educational assessment and post divorce counseling.
