Alicia van Zyl
Counsellor, Education Support
Alicia holds a teaching degree and an Honours in Educational Psychology from the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. She is currently also furthering her studies with a Certificate IV in Education Support. Alicia taught for seven years in the public sector in South Africa. During this time, she was a case manager, liaising with parents and executive staff and meeting regularly with students to identify factors that might affect their learning, after which intervention plans were set in motion.
Alicia believes in a holistic approach to counselling and intervention, combining different therapy techniques to best suit each child. She is passionate about supporting children and youth in their journey to become the best versions of themselves and reach their full potential.
On weekends, Alicia and her husband enjoy day trips to the countryside and the Blue Mountains region is a personal favourite. Away from the clinic, Alicia enjoys doing crossword puzzles, watching renovation programs and going for scenic walks.
