Registered Psychologist Prue Urlwin is based in Holderness House,
Selwyn House School, 122 Merivale Lane, Merivale, Christchurch.
As a born and bred Cantabrian, I am once again enjoying the chance to work in Private Practice back in Christchurch. I welcome both old and new families, parents, and children. As a Child and Family Psychologist, I have worked with children and their families for more than 7 years and my particular area of interest and expertise is with learning abilities, difficulties, and giftedness.
I am experienced and skilled in cognitive and specific learning needs assessment and report writing with a practical approach. I worked in Christchurch for several years with children and their families with mild to severe learning difficulties, this included dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD/ADD, dyscalculia, and aspergers syndrome.
I am also experienced in assessment for NZQA examination accommodations. For the past two years I have been working with Lynn Berresford in Auckland and alongside many opportunities, I worked with gifted and talented children and their families.
