Tina is a Psychologist as well as a qualified teacher for the early childhood and development phase. She is extremely passionate about her work and has a special interest in working with children and adolescents. Tina completed her internship in 2012 and continued working at a full-time remedial school where learners received therapeutic and individualised remedial support. Working in a multidisciplinary team – which consisted of parents, teachers, remedial, speech and occupational therapists – enriched her experience and ignited her passion for working collaboratively with all significant role players in a child’s life. Tina subsequently followed her dream of opening up an established private practice within a mainstream school environment, servicing the learners and working closely with parents and teachers. She specialises in identifying learning difficulties in the foundation, intermediate and senior phases (Grade R-12).
Tina believes that early diagnosis and interventions lead to greatly enhanced outcomes for learners who experience barriers to learning.
She attends regular courses to expanded her knowledge about various learning barriers and learn new skills and techniques to empower children to rise above their scholastic, emotional and social barriers.
Tina has a special interest in play therapy with children and also provides counselling for adolescents and parental guidance and support for families.
