Our Team Members
Colleen Bow is a Psychometrist registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa under the Independent Practice category. She completed her BA Psychology (Hons) from the Rand Afrikaans University in 2004 and went on to do an internship in Psychometry at the Institute of Child and Adult Guidance. She then entered into the Medico-Legal field, conducting neuropsychological and educational assessments under the guidance of both Neuropsychologists and Educational Psychologists in the Johannesburg area. This line of work brings one into contact with people from all walks of life and levels of ability and has brought a great deal of depth to her abilities as a Psychometrist.
In addition, Colleen also conducts assessments on a more organisational / industrial level where assessments are performed for the purposes of recruitment, selection and career development within companies. This includes personality / job profile matching, measuring strategic intent as well as cognitive ability. In this line of work both online and face to face assessments are conducted.
In recent times Colleen has encountered the world of Neurofeedback Therapy (also known as Neurotherapy) and, through seeing the positive effects it had on her own child, she decided that this was something that she needed to investigate more. She completed the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) Didactic course in Neurofeedback Therapy in 2013. Colleen is able to assist both children and adults.
Neurofeedback is truly a breakthrough for our field in that through Neurofeedback one can effectively re-train your brain to produce the appropriate brain waves and create more flexibility and alertness. Through the principle of operant conditioning, the brain can learn to lay down new, more efficient neural pathways, without the use of medication. Neurofeedback has been effective in the treatment of a wide range of difficulties including the treatment of ADD / ADHD, depression, anxiety and PTSD as well as Peak Performance Training for high functioning adults who want to sharpen their mental skills.
