REGISTRATION


I am a qualified and registered Counselling Psychologist. I am registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA), Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF), Psychological Society of South Africa (PsySSA) and Neuropsychology SA.

I pride myself on working from an ethical stance and continuously updating my knowledge, theory and practice. I am passionate and thoroughly involved in Research and use this to inform my practice. My research interest lies in Neuropsychology and Assessment.

My Master’s thesis focus was on the development of local SA norms (scores) for a Psychological Assessment tool known as the Tower of London-DX 2nd Ed. In the field of Psychology, assessments are vastly utilised to measure intellect, cognition and emotional functioning among others, however, are often developed internationally and therefore have an international scoring systems. The development of local norms enables precise, accurate and reliable outcomes and recommendations best suited to the SA client.

I am in the process of publishing a journal article based on my thesis topic. My thesis findings are also being published in a Neuropsychological Assessment textbook on SA norms to aid practitioners in their therapeutic practice.

I also keep up-to-date with technological advances and integrate this into my practice. I recognise that in this era, being tech-savvy is essential especially given the role of technology and its impact on mental well-being, family relationships and boundaries and emotional connections.

This is imperative as cyber-bullying, pornography and human-trafficking is rife in our country as accessibility to the World Wide Web [Internet] is prominent.
