Meet Hannes

I am an educational psychologist in Parkhurst and in Centurion. The psychological fields that intrigue me are acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, career counselling, anxiety treatment, and any mental disorders that have an impact on learning and development.

I’m also intrigued by the psychological uses and impact of social media on adolescents.

I was also granted the opportunity to be provide advice on topic ranging from career counselling, examinations and the world of work. The channels include, Kyknet, eNCA and SABC News.

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.
