I have over twenty years' experience working with children of all ages. As a mother of two, I understand the pressures that children and parents face. I believe that all people have potential; sometimes they just need some assistance in realising this.

I work with children, teenagers, adults and families and have special interests in working with children with ADHD and separated families. I am currently reading towards my PhD through UCT.
