Debby Kempthorne – Educational Psychologist
I have a Masters in Clinical Psychology from the University of Stellenbosch, and I am registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) as well as the Board of Healthcare Funders of Southern Africa (BHF).
I am very empathetic and intuitive and believe everyone has a story to share if one takes the time to listen.
“When engaging with children I love how I can apply my creativity, nurturing ability and patience to assist them in reaching their full potential, increasing their confidence and self-worth”
How I work
Learning potential lies within everyone, in order to unlock that one needs to understand the child and their learning currency. Decoding their needs is very rewarding for me. For this reason, I am constantly researching and finding creative and fun ways to remediate any barriers to learning.
