The title of my mini-dissertation, a part of completing my master’s degree was “Neuro-feedback intervention efficacy for treating children with Autism Spectrum Disorder” which is also published at the Journal of Psychology Africa.
I completed my internship year at Stikland Psychiatric Hospital and Tygerberg Hospital. As an intern clinical psychologist, I worked with a team of psychiatrists, occupational therapists and social workers to treat adults and children/adolescents battling a range of psychological disorders.
During my internship I practised and mastered a range of therapeutic modalities as I rotated and worked in the following medical wards at the different hospitals: therapeutic and acute wards for children/adolescents and adults, neuropsychiatry and neuropsychological assessments, addictions, community work at Delft Community Clinic and psychological formulations clinics.
After completing my internship, I completed my Community Service year at Drakenstein Correctional Service based in Paarl. During this year, I continued to expand my skills in providing supportive psychotherapy to offenders as part of their rehabilitation programmes. I also performed therapeutic assessments and risk assessments on selected offenders as part of their rehabilitation to determine eligibility for parole.
Currently I am in private practice treating patients and I also are a clinical supervisor (mentor) for the Masters Students in Clinical Psychology at the University of the Western Cape (UWC).
