The benefits that an Educational Psychologist can provide to you and your children cannot be measured in immediate monetory value, nor can you apply conventional measurement scales to a specific start and end goal. Instead, we focus on the specific individual's current functioning and the ideal goal of the child in the domain of learning and development. The Educational Psychological support that I provide is not limited to children and parents. I also specialise in providing workshops and in-depth training to teachers and groups on various topics in this space.
