Licensed psychologist

At Premier Care’s Masaki clinic, Amaechi Nduka-Agwu, a HPCSA (Health Professional Council of South Africa) certified counselling psychologist leads the psychology department, offering a range of psychological services including psychotherapy and psychoeducational assessments.

The psychotherapy sessions, usually lasting 45 to 60 minutes, are solution orientated, looking to recognise strengths and identify resources, creating positive outcomes to the negative issues and problems that made you seek out this service. Psychotherapy is most sought out by those suffering with sadness and low mood, life transitions, low self-esteem, post-natal depression, and many more. No one person is the same nor deals with the same issues, psychotherapy is available for all.

The department also provides psychoeducational (scholastic) assessments that are useful in identifying strengths and areas of concerns that relate to a child’s thinking, feeling and development, including school -potential and – barriers. These assessments often identify specific learning disorders such as dyslexia, attention regulation problems such as ADHD, giftedness and evaluating barriers to learning.

These assessments are not limited to children however, as adults can also receive assessments including cognitive assessments for intellectual ability, working memory and processing speed, ADHD, and mental health consultations and evaluations.
