About Us

Prakash is a strongly motivated, registered, senior Psychologist with more than 30 years of experience in the field of Psychology.

With Masters degrees in Psychology and Sociology, a Post-graduate qualification in Guidance and Counselling and a degree in Speech Language Therapy, Prakash is well-equipped to deal with a variety of learning and behaviour issues in children and youth.

The expertise Prakash holds is in the areas of learning issues, behavioural issues and organisational skills. Successfully supporting people to achieve their best, his multi-skilled combination of qualifications make him effectively holistic in his outlook.

Prakash can help if:
  • You are a parent with an unhappy, angry, withdrawn, obsessive, or argumentative, under- performing child or teenager
  • Your child has learning difficulties in school in reading, writing, spelling or maths
  • You are a teacher or educational specialist who is responsible for a child or teenager who shows ‘problematic’ and/or ‘unresponsive’ behaviours
  • You are dealing with anxiety, depression or a dysfunctional state of mind
  • You are having relationship issues
  • You are dealing with challenging behaviours

Prakash’s policy is to talk with you and your child and explain his process in the first 5 minutes, before undertaking any assessments. Then, while your child is being assessed, you are offered tea or coffee and a comfortable space to wait.

Location

The centre is in the Flat Bush residential area in Auckland. Attached to Prakash’s house, it is private, with a separate entry and parking space just outside. There is a well-designed waiting room attached to the consultation room, where you and your family will be looked after by our friendly receptionist.

The changes Dr Prakash has made in our family for the benefit our son’s learning, has without doubt benefitted our son and us all and we are eternally grateful. We will continue to recommend Dr Grover to all and will not hesitate to call on his services when the time arises, as the children get older.

I am writing to thank Prakash for helping to ‘get our happy boy back’. The changes that have been made will be profound for him, and I am really grateful for your wise and timely in-depth guidance. In my former life I was founder, and later chairman of the largest executive placement company in New Zealand. I consider that I have significant expertise in identifying high performance across many disciplines. I consider your expertise in this area to be simply outstanding, and I have already recommended you to a number of people. I am sure you will help many more children who have similar needs like our son. I am happy to be contacted at the following details should anyone wants to know further.

I am a 16 year old boy and have been diagnosed with dyslexia. Over the time I spent with Prakash , I am helped in many ways. When I went to Prakash I was not confident in myself. Prakash helped me overcome with some issues that were preventing me from living my life to the full potential that could be achieved. Prakash helped me to organise my time to a schedule. The results of spending time with Prakash is that I am now very confident in my own abilities and to handle any challenge that come up my way. My school grades have gone up considerably since seeing Prakash. My spelling of words has also improved. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone with issues of dyslexia and ADHD to Prakash.
