Catherine Radloff — Educational Psychologist - Cape Town, South Africa


I specialise in diagnosing learning problems in the foundation, intermediate and senior phases (Grade 1-12). I believe that early diagnosis and interventions lead to greatly enhanced outcomes for learners who experience barriers to learning.

I have a special interest in learners who experience difficulty with concentration and/or hyperactivity and have extensive experience with ADD/ADHD.

I also provide counselling for adolescents and families. I specialise in parent guidance on the following issues; divorce, dealing with adolescent/child depression, conflict resolution and effective communication.

In terms of my work with adolescents and children I offer therapy for the following:

  • Managing ADHD
  • Anger and anxiety
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Chronic illness
  • Identity crises
  • Peer conflict and bullying
  • Poor self-esteem

I work closely with a team of professionals consisting of a Child Psychiatrists, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and a Remedial Specialists.
