As a qualified psychologist I do general practice, relationship issues (therapy and mediation) and trauma work. Employee emotional wellness counselling is also an aspect of my practice. At least 50% of my practice is assessing people for jobs or career development. I use valid and reliable tests and methods approved by the Health Professions Council of SA to discover the aspects of learning and personality strengths and weaknesses that interviews do not always adequately show. I believe in using multipel personality measures to get a better confirmation of the personality and possible stress reactions. My website www.astute-assessments.co.za gives a fuller picture of the psychodiagnostic assessments that I do. My general practice website is www.psychologicalinterventions.co.za.
