Work History

Counsellor (psychology intern)

Headway - Hyde Park

April 2013 - February 2014

Face to face and telephone counselling for survivors of traumatic brain injury and their families. Facilitated psychology groups for the survivors of traumatic brain injury to enhance life skills, give psycho-education and offer psychological support to the attendees who are the survivors of traumatic brain injury. It was imperative to form an understanding of the brain, its function and dysfunction as a result of trauma and/aging in order to be an effective facilitator and counsellor in this particular setting.

Psychology intern

Weskoppies Psychiatric Hospital

February 2013 - February 2014

I worked in the adolescents ward and my role was a facilitator put in place not just to learn on the job but to provide psychological stimulation where the adolescents in that setting would otherwise not receive. Life skills, psycho-education about a myriad of topics and a combination of activities aimed at stimulating the adolescents were the focus of my work in this clinical setting.

Psychology intern

Teddy Bear Clinic

February 2013 - December 2013

I worked at the Teddy Bear Clinic as a court preparation facilitator for abused children going to court and those that needed follow-up support after they had been to court. Quite an emotionally intensive experience and I learned a lot about working with abused children and the justice system's role and efforts to support and protect children particularly in South Africa.

I did face to face and telephone counselling, and trauma debriefing for people who have experienced any type of trauma and require counselling and support as a result.
