Much of my work focuses on career guidance and development where I combine an exciting range of qualitative techniques with the more traditional psychometric approach. This allows me to assist individuals in gaining insight into their personal journeys and motivations as they make career decisions, thereby enriching their self-knowledge.
I also work with learning problems and focus on developing academic skills such as time management and study skills. I offer full educational-psychological assessments to identify learning problems (for example, problems with mathematics, reading and writing) and then put appropriate support in place. Such support may include work with teachers and schools and applications for exam concessions (extra time, the use of a scribe etc.).
Psycho-therapeutic support focused on issues affecting an individual's learning and development, such as test anxiety, is also offered.
