I qualified as an Educational Psychologist at the University of Pretoria. With a history of teaching in the foundation phase I recognise how important it is for early intervention to take place and for parents to be guided in assisting and understanding their child and their unique needs. I am passoinate about helping children by using an integrated approach in order to identify and address any learning and/or behavioural difficulties that may interfere with their ability to realise and achieve their full potential.
