Welcome to my Practice
As an educational psychologist, my focus is on helping children or young people who are experiencing problems within an educational setting with the aim of enhancing their learning.
Challenges may include social or emotional problems or learning difficulties. My focus is on helping my client and I provide additional support by further advising teachers, parents, therapists and other professionals. Today, perhaps more than ever, assessing students' knowledge and skills is a central issue in schools.
