Dr. Kelly J Botha

I work with a range of people and presentations, however my primary area of interest is the development of human capability, with a specific focus on performance psychology.

I am passionate about assisting and encouraging individuals and groups to explore and realise their potentials, believing that self-awareness is the foundation from which individuals can explore possibilities and make considered and meaningful choices about their lives.

Clinical Experience and Training

I completed a Doctor of Psychology Degree (Clinical), in Australia in 2005, and have previously worked within the South African Police Services, the Department of Child Protection, and private and public healthcare in WA.

Performance Psychology

In addition to working full-time in clinical practice, my performance-related work has included contractual and consultant positions with the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS), the Western Australian Institute of Sport (WAIS), and Netball Western Australia.

I also work with athletes and coaches from a variety of sporting disciplines on an individual and independent basis, at both amateur and professional levels. These have included successful Australian Olympic and Commonwealth Medalists, as well as internationally contracted sportspeople who have been based in Western Australia.

Clientele also include individuals from a diverse range of occupations, eg. musicians and financial traders, several of whom are now based internationally but continue to access my services.
