About Tanya

I am a registered Educational Psychologist practising in Craighall Park, Johannesburg. My key focus is on psychotherapy. Using various techniques such as Play therapy, Sand tray therapy, Creative expressive arts therapy, Eriksonian hypnotherapy and Ego state therapy I guide my clients to live more fulfilled and balanced lives.

My greatest passion is helping children reach their goals and true potential. I guide children to relate to others and their environment in the most effective way. Often, children feel stuck; I help them deal with their frustrations, fears, and anxiety in healthy ways. I focus on assisting children to gain a shift in perspective and understand themselves and others better. It is about working holistically with the child, parents, and teachers to find the ultimate learning solutions. 

I completed my Master’s degree at the University of Johannesburg. I did my practical work at Hope School. My Internship was completed at Sci-Bono Discovery Centre where I provided individual therapy, various types of assessments and workshops. I also provided therapeutic services at Curtis Nkonko School of Specialisation in Orlando.
