Welcome to my website!
I was born in South Africa in 1985. I gained a bachelor degree in Fine Art with honours from the University of Cape Town.
I then went on to study General Psychology, Child and Adolescent Development, Personality Theories and Abnormal Psychology. In Cape Town I gained experience volunteering in a prison psychiatric ward and an orphanage, where I worked with adults and adolescents coming from abusive homes. In 2008 I lived in America, where I did an exchange program whilst studying Psychology and working with children.
I have been living in Munich since 2009, where I studied my Art Education and Art Therapy degree, followed by a diploma in Psychotherapy. In 2014 I worked as an Art Therapist in an adult drug addiction clinic in Munich.
Additionally I am recognised by the German Health and Environmental Department (Referat für Gesundheit und Umwelt) and am a registered “Heilpraktikerin für Psychotherapie” (natural health professional in Psychotherapy).
I have taken part in several advanced training courses in professional development. Some of these include anatomy and physiology, sexual abuse, sex education, communication, early multilingual development and dealing with children with behavioural problems.
