Counselling Psychologist
BA, BA Hons, MA (Counselling Psychology)

Abu Dhabi

Frederick van Wyk has joined ACPN from Cape Town, South Africa, where he worked as a counselling psychologist in private practice. He gained a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology at the University of Johannesburg in 1997. He also completed a BA Honours degree in Psychology and BA in Personnel Management.

Prior to joining ACPN, Frederick worked in private practice for 11 years in Cape Town. There he worked with children and parents – individually, in groups and in schools. He often lectures parents and teachers on childhood emotional health.

Frederick worked with children who have experienced trauma, abuse, bereavement, ADHD, parental divorce and those who have problems with adjustment. As younger children find it difficult to verbalize their challenges, he uses play therapy and projective techniques to identify difficulties and foster healing.  With older children and teenagers, he uses more conventional approaches, but provides for creative expression. He helps teenagers to enter the adult life with confidence through career guidance and standardized psychometric tests.
