I am Eastern Cape born
and bred, having grown up in Uitenhage and matriculating at the Brandwag
Hoërskool in 1969. I completed a BA degree majoring in Psychology and
Philosophy, and a Higher Education Diploma at the University of Port Elizabeth,
in 1973 and 1974 respectively, followed by a BA Hons degree in Psychology from
UNISA in 1978. I completed an M.Ed. in Educational Psychology at UPE in 
1988. I also completed a 5 year practical supervised training course in
Narrative Therapy through the Institute for Therapeutic Development at
UNISA.

I am fortunate to have gained teaching experience
over 4 years, as well as having worked with children and parents as a school
counsellor from 1974 to 1986. An 11-year stint as School Psychologist and
eventually Senior School Psychologist at Cape Receife School followed.

I ventured into private psychological practice in
1988.

I work in several areas. I have been attached to a
Psychiatric Practice for more than 20 years, dealing with general psychiatric
difficulties such as depression, anxiety, mood disorders, substance use
disorders, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, both in assessment and
psychotherapy. I was responsible for inpatient group psychotherapy at
Hunterscraig Psychiatric Hospital for six years.

I have extensive experience of neuropsychological
functioning in children, including assessment of brain-behaviour-scholastic
functioning, learning disorders such as dyslexia, educational and vocational
guidance, general psychological and emotional development and learning. I have
worked with children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, psychoses, traumatic
brain injury, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and muscular dystrophies.

This work included psychometric assessment, drawing
up reports, parental guidance, individual and family psychotherapy, teacher
training, as well as teaching. I supervised the departments of Occupational
Therapy, Physiotherapy, Speech Therapy and Remedial Tuition. I have supervised
several Intern psychologists in all categories of registration.

I have been performing child custody assessments
for the Office of the Family Advocate since 1993, and have conducted several
hundred enquiries. I have extensive experience of court testifying, performing
custody assessments, assessment of parenting ability and capacity, and drawing
up parenting plans. Divorce can be destructive to parents and children, so I
try to assist with divorce recovery for adults and children. 

I am also a registered family and Divorce Mediator.
Mediation is often a less destructive, more child-friendly and less expensive
route than legal proceedings.

I regularly perform assessments and draw up reports
for the Road Accident Fund (RAF) and victims of motor vehicle accidents. 

I have assisted the National Prosecuting Authority
and individuals in assessing, reporting on and testifying in serious criminal
cases such as rape, murder and child sexual abuse.
