Welcome To Dr. Dreyer's Psychology Practice

Counselling Psychologist and Educational Specialist

I have 19 years of experience in the field of psychology. People and their wellness on especially an emotional and educational level has been my absolute passion since. I have been a teacher for a few years and then qualified as a psychologist. I worked as a psychologist while running a part time private practice at a remedial school for 3 years. I also worked at a psychiatric hospital in the Child-and-Adolescent Unit for 7 years whilst running my private practice in the afternoons. I have been in full time private practice for the last 8 years.

In my work with adults my client and I decide together on the process and I tailor make a programme for their needs or go with how their process unfolds using mainly EMDR (trauma therapy), psycho-analysis and expressive therapies. The therapeutic modalities are applied and used in conjunction with a Christian stance and perspective - should the client be comfortable with that.

I also do educational work ranging from I.Q. testing, school readiness and career guidance to brain dominance profiles and study methods as well as motivations for assessment accommodations during tests and exams.
