About Andrea

Therapy is the greatest gift anyone individual can give themselves”. I am a Lecturer and registered Educational Psychologist in private practice based in Craighall Park, Johannesburg. I currently work with children and adults and have worked extensively in the tertiary setting. I believe that therapy is the greatest gift anyone individual can give themselves, and that mental health and wellbeing should be tackled systemically.

I have a special interest in Psychometric Assessment, specifically concessions. These assessments provide insights to “level the playing field” and allow individuals to achieve at their optimal potential. Therapeutically I enjoy working with members of the LGBTQI+ community as well as with presentations of anxiety and challenges with adjustment and life transitions.

My training took place at the University of Johannesburg (PsyCaD), Headway and the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG), where I worked with varied presentations, conducted various assessments and offering psychotherapy, play therapy and career counselling. I am also trained in crisis intervention and management, HIV and termination of pregnancy counselling.

I hold masters degrees in both Educational Psychology and Research Psychology, and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education. I am also an EPASSA member and Assessment Committee member as well a PYSSA member having stood on the Executive Committee for the Student Division and being a current Exco member of the Society of Educational Psychologists of South Africa.
