Gizem Gokcinem MSc.
Gizem has a MSc in clinical psychology from Reading University. She has worked with children and young adults in a variety of settings including homes and schools as well as outdoor activities. She has worked at a school managed by the National Autistic Society in Reading. During that time, she was part of a very supportive team that included highly experienced specialists. Combining her educational background and practical experience in autism and ABA, she has worked with numerous families with children on different levels of the spectrum. The programmes she has designed and implemented are tailored to each child and their environment. Their aim is to support them academically, and to teach and develop clear communication, and also functional and social interaction skills to build up their confidence, become independent and integrate into new environments. Gizem has also worked with early intervention programmes where she was trying to overcome the child’s rigidity around food and environment and to ensure that the child can settle more easily into different settings like nursery and school.
Gizem is a highly practical and patient therapist. She tries to make the sessions as enjoyable as possible by bringing engaging tasks and novel materials to keep up and maintain motivation. Her experience and exposure to different cases has confirmed her belief that learning is about making sessions engaging and fun. Whenever possible, learning should be an experience and a reward that the child seeks to repeat.
Gizem has worked extensively with other specialists such as Speech and Language Therapists and other autism consultants to tailor the best therapeutic plans for the children. She is always keen to help parents to develop their own techniques for managing day-to-day tasks.
