Biography: Dr Andrea Phillips - Seidel
Born in South Africa, I have been a Clinical Psychologist and Mediator for the past 26 years, practicing in NYC, in Hamburg, Germany and ultimately in Paarl and in Cape Town, South Africa. I specialized in the field of women’s psychology and family therapy, training at the Ackerman Institute of Family therapy in NYC.
I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Cape Town, my Honors from UNISA, my Masters in Psychology from New York University and my Doctorate from the University of Southern California for Professional Studies.
I am an accredited Mediator and am affiliated with the FAMAC society of the Western Cape. I specialize in Divorce Mediations and Facilitations.
I have always written alongside practicing and have had various articles published in Psychology Magazines and Journals. Some have been advice-giving and others have been full articles with references. I have been invited to address many teens in classroom settings, as well as lawyers and mediators. I have run successful workshops for women, couples and mediators – in the various parts of the world I have been privileged enough to practice in.
My special interest is in Metaphysics and the application of the various principles thereof in every day life and living.
I am a mother of two teenage daughters.
