I hold a Masters degree in Clinical and Community Psychology
from the University of Stellenbosch, and a research Masters degree (Cum Laude) from the University of Cape Town. I am registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (PS 0117811).
I completed my internship and community service with the South African Department of Defence (SANDF), where I worked at 2 Military Hospital in Wynberg, as well as Health Centre Youngsfield. During my time at the SANDF I formed part of the hospital's Paediatric Neurodevelopmental Clinic, a multi-disciplinary team who specifically work with ADHD, autism and behavioural disorders in children, as well as cognitive assessments and school-readiness.
I also spent time working in the hospital's in-patient psychiatric ward, as well as seeing to outpatients.
I am also currently registered to do my doctorate at the University of Cape Town, specifically looking at the functional impairment of South African children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). I founded the ADHD research team at UCT in 2008, and have been involved with this topic ever since. In July of this year I will be attending the European Congrex of Psychology in Stockholm, Sweden to present my work in this field.
