Hello, my name is Kerry, and I am a Humanitas Counselling student.
I completed my Bachelor of Arts in English and Psychology at the University of the Witwatersrand and my Bachelor of Social Science Honours in Psychology at The South African College of Applied Psychology.
During my studies, I worked as a tutor for a company in Johannesburg where I assisted primary and high school students as well as learners with various learning difficulties. Moreover, I have some experience working with children on the autism spectrum and I received training in Applied Behaviour Analysis. However, I am not providing ABA instruction currently.
At present, I am completing 220 hours of counselling experience under supervision of the Vita Nova Counselling Centre team. Please note that I am providing these services in English. I also volunteer for a psychology practice in Johannesburg by creating psychoeducational posts on social media.
While most of my experience has been with children and teenagers, I am happy to work with adults and I have received training from Humanitas to do so. Whatever reasons you have for seeking counselling, I commend you for reaching out and I hope to be a “fellow traveller” on your journey to greater wellbeing.
