About Hannes

I am an educational psychologist in Centurion. The psychological fields that intrigue me are cognitive behavioural therapy, career counselling, anxiety treatment, and any mental disorders that have an impact on learning and development.
I’m also very intrigued by the psychological uses and impact of social media on adolescents.

In 2016 I presented at the International Congress of Psychology in Yokohama, Japan. The presentation was titled: Exploring the use of Facebook as a tool to enhance the career construction journeys of Grade 11 adolescents at a high school.
