Currently I am volunteering as a counsellor at Hope House Counselling Centre where I engage in Individual Counselling, Play Therapy, Couples Counselling, Family Counselling, Grief and Loss Counselling and Trauma Counselling. I see adults, couples, families, adolescents and children.
I have assisted in running a group counselling program with a clinical social worker for tweens aged between 10 and 13 years old. The focus was to help these individuals who struggled with socialising to develop the necessary skills and emotional maturity to build up their self-esteem. My responsibilities included assisting in developing the program each week which aimed to promote social-emotional learning and an increased sense of self.
I assisted in running a career counselling program at a primary school in Cape Town. The aim was to encourage the Grade 7 learners to set realistic goals and prepare for their futures. I developed fun and interactive programs for each week in order to educate the children about a variety of careers.
Autism Spectrum Disorder has a wide range of clinical presentations. I was part of an organization that aimed to help individuals on the spectrum who lacked social or emotional skills in daily life. The goal of each visit was to help the individual develop social skills and build self-confidence so that they would be able to interact with others appropriately.
