Educational Psychologist

I am passionate about working with children, adolescents, families and the greater community. As an educational psychologist, my mission is to help my clients reach their full potential by engaging in evidence-based practices and strategies.

My goal is to empower clients to embrace and take charge of their life journey and to promote personal growth and development. I have worked with learners of all ages and backgrounds, providing guidance and support in areas such as academic achievement, mental health, and parental guidance. I work from an integrative perspective, drawing on various therapeutic modalities which best suit my clients’ individual needs.

My belief is that therapy needs to be tailormade for each client. My core focus is working from a Person-centred approach whilst applying Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy techniques.

  • Therapy for children aged 4 + (play therapy)
  • Therapy for adolescents facing a wide variety of adjustment difficulties, anxiety, and mood related difficulties
