Counselor & Coach
Hello, I'm Dominique, a Counselor and Psycholgist holding a Bachelor's degree in psychology from the South African College of Applied Psychology and a Master's in Clinical Psychology from the International Psychoanalytic University in Berlin.
My journey, both personally and professionally, has led me to diverse settings and countries, including Zambia, Tanzania, Germany, South Africa, and Vietnam. These experiences have enriched my understanding of the complexities of Third-Culture Kid (TCK) life. As a Counselor, I use an integrated approach, tailoring therapeutic strategies to each client's unique needs. I firmly believe in the uniqueness of every child and family, deserving a personalized approach that extends beyond immediate challenges.
Within a safe, nurturing, and creative environment, I aim to guide young individuals in rediscovering their inherent strengths. I view life transitions as opportunities for growth, empowerment, self-expression, and joy. My holistic and person-centred approach emphasizes the vital role of therapy in a student's life, highlighting the distinct strengths and effective problem-solving skills that each individual possesses.
Throughout my career, I've worked with young individuals facing various concerns, including anxiety, life transitions, ADHD, and self-esteem issues. I also offer specialized support to children and adolescents on the autism spectrum and students with Special Educational Needs (SEN).
As someone who has navigated my own neurodivergent journey with Dyslexia and ADHD, I bring a unique perspective to the counseling relationship, fostering deeper connections with individuals facing similar challenges, offering empathy and guidance.
I also facilitate a holistic teen coaching program. Read more about it here.
My specialities include Coaching, Counseling, Mental Skills Coaching, Social skills, Stress management, Time Management, Organizational skills, Transitioning, Third Culture Kids, Motivation, Goal Setting, Confidence & Self-Esteem, Social Skills & Anxiety.
I’m from South Africa and I speak English.
