I am a clinical psychologist specialized in psychological assessment and psychotherapy and an assistant lecturer at the Department of Counselling Psychology, University of Education, Winneba. I teach mainly at the undergraduate level and conduct research.
Before joining the University of Education Winneba, I worked as a coordinator for Clever Minds, a home tuition educational network that helps young children with academic difficulties to improve their performance in various subjects and also provides assistance with other educational needs.
Presently on a doctoral programme in Psychology at the University of Ghana, Legon, my research interest is largely in the area of psychological wellbeing among vulnerable groups and children. I am also interested in research that focuses on the psychosocial aspects of HIV/AIDS and adolescent mental health and wellbeing.
