Current situation: Coronavirus information (COVID-19)
The psychology pratice is open. To prevent coronavirus, various measures have been put in place:
- In the discussion area, the seat distance between the psychologist and the clients is approximately 2.5 m. For certain activities carried out at the table with children and adolescents (e.g. when carrying out assessments), this distance is 1.5 m.
- A disinfectant hand spray is available to clients. They disinfect their hands before entering the consultation room.
- The objects and materials used when working with children/adolescents are disinfected after each use.
- The "free play" corner has been removed, to avoid the presence of toys used by many children.
- A disinfectant spray for surfaces is regularly applied in sensitive areas (WC, washbasin, door handles, chairs).
- We ask clients to come at the scheduled time, in order to prevent previous and next clients from crossing paths, or more than one family in the waiting area at the same time.

Difficulties in mathematics

Understanding the difficulties

The reasons for difficulties in mathematics can be cognitive, i. e. they are connected with the way of thinking and understanding of the brain: for example, the child has difficulties in understanding and developing the concepts for numbers and quantities, he or she has memory problems, difficulties in concentrating, etc. However, there may also be emotional causes, such as blockages or anxieties, for example as a result of bad experiences in connection with mathematics. These causes are often differently pronounced and occur individually or combined.

I help the parents to gain an overview about the situation in order to understand where the difficulties are coming from and how the child can best be supported.

Support courses in mathematics

My activities also include support courses for children in mathematics, where I can help the child with his or her learning activities and training with exercices, using additional knowledge and techniques from psychology. I completed my university studies both in psychology and in mathematics, therefore my particular interest in combining these two areas.
