I am an educational psychologist and counsellor, with more ten years of experience in teaching, parenting, running support groups and workshops, teacher training and counselling. I would like to share my knowledge and expertise in issues particularly related to helping children cope with learning and the school experience.
My greatest credential (and perhaps my achievement too)is having two children and supporting them through school. In addition to my academic qualifications I have belonged to an international peer counselling organisation for the past 13 years. My other accomplishment is in setting up my own education and family resource centre.
I absolutely like being part of the process of helping children learn,so anything I could learn and know about that helps. I think the process of growth and development in humans is fascinating. The uniqueness of it in each individual is interesting.
I will continue to learn all that there is to learn about children and learning. I want to build both my parents and teachers support network. and I am setting up an institure for social and emotional skills development.
That behaviour patterns are caused by initial hurtful experiences that cause a rigid response as a coping mechanism and gets reinforced. The only way to change the behavioral response is to identify the source of the hurt and release the hurt.
That punishment ,especially corporal punishment, will not make a child learn or behave in a desirable way.
