Intern Counselling Psychologist from the University of the Witwatersrand. “I am particularly interested in LGBTIAQ+ issues and various facets of identity. I look forward to furthering my career in community psychology and working with individuals and families in future."
Intern Educational psychologist from the University of the Witwatersrand “I am interested in promoting child development and working to optimise children's individual potential. I have a growing interest in working with parents in thinking about their child and how to interact with them in a way that is unique to their individual traits."
Intern Counselling Psychologist from Pearson Institute of Higher Education. “I'm particularly interested in community work. I believe that providing psychological services in communities that cannot access them is of paramount importance in fostering emotional and psychological growth. Another interest is in the caregiver-child relationship as a means to help form healthy attachments that can assist in one's resilience, and forming and maintaining healthy relationships later in life.”
Intern Community-Based Counselling Psychologist from the University of the Witwatersrand. “I am interested in gaining an understanding of people and the way in which early experiences mould an individual’s view of the world. Furthermore, I enjoy community work and have a particular interest in the way that gender, race and class intersect in a manner that shapes our social experiences.”
Counselling Psychology Intern from the University of Johannesburg. “I have a keen interest in understanding the internal world of children and facilitating a greater awareness of their experiences to parents and adult caregivers. I hope to contribute theoretical and practical experience to families within the community of Alexandra”.
