Get to Know Us

and Our Philosophy

We are Sikhona Therapy - Educational Psychologists. We have a Zulu name, an Afrikaans heritage and English practitioners. Our heart is all about inclusivity, diversity and meeting the needs of children.

Sikhona means "I am here." This powerful greeting validates being seen for who one is - being present. We believes that every child has the potential to reach their full potential despite any barriers or challenges they may face. Our aim is to assist children and their families in rediscovering their purpose, passions and power through the practice of assessment, therapy and guidance. 

“children are not things to be molded, but are people to be unfolded.”

Who is Sikhona Therapy?

The Schoeman Twins...

Yes, we are twins. We grew up with similar interests and dreams and decided to pursue careers in Educational Psychology together. We both studied at the University of Pretoria, we both also hold Honours and Masters degree in Educational Psychology, including Bachelor degrees in Education, all of which obtained from the University of Pretoria. We have walked a long road of studying together and this has best informed our practice as we have developed similar methodologies and approaches to providing services framed by the latest research and practice. We are registered with the HPCSA and from part of EPASSA.

...and COCO

Meet Coco. She is a Labradoodle (Labrador and Poodle Mix), the dream temperament for therapy. When she is big, she aspires to join an Animal Assisted Therapy Program. Even though she is still a puppy, she knows how to sit, gives Hi 5's and the best cuddles. Coco has already started to work and the kids (and adults) absolutely love her!
