Johan Olwagen

Johan – better known as Ollie – is a registered Clinical Psychologist with the HPCSA. He has a Masters Degree I Counselling Psychology and completed 2 internships in Counselling and Clinical Psychology.

He has had a rich career as a consultant psychologist since 1995, with prior experience as a General Manager in a health care company, a private practice in Clinical & Counselling Psychology, worked in the Public Sector and in Academia as a lecturer.

His involvement with Physiotherapy started when he taught undergraduate physiotherapists on Psychology topics in general and patient care in particular. His exposure in public and private hospitals, working as a psychologist in several medical disciplines, constantly had him engage with multi-disciplinary professions on many levels.

Whilst his career took him into doing work with corporates mainly, over the last years his involvement in health (both physical & mental wellbeing) has been reignited. During the COVID-19 lockdown period he has presented webinars and workshops (on-line & face-to-face) on topics such as Compassion Fatigue, Burnout, Post-Traumatic Growth, Moral Injury, Resilience, Emotional Intelligence, Coaching and Leadership.

Ollie is married to Carole and has two beautiful daughters, one in Amsterdam and the other in Johannesburg. His love for nature and music has exposed him to travelling and hiking in a number of African countries, as well as Australia, Spain, UK & USA.

What Our Students Have to Say

As the current evidence used, and treatment approaches taught... Were very applicable to my current setting.The online experience was new, but was interactive. I would definitely do another one.
Jaime Crowie
Thanks Tanya and all involved for the online presentation. The shoulder really is complicated and there is just always more to learn.
Sandra

Anne
I recently did the deep gluteal course - It was fantastic and solved my problems. Living on top of a hill and doing all my house work was the cause but your were the solution. Thanks so much🙏.
Kathy Hodgson
Thanks again for your courses! It has been great to access them from Limpopo, especially given all the difficulty it would involve to get from Limpopo to wherever you are lecturing, or trying to organize the course in Limpopo.
Michele Kroger
Thank-you for another brilliant course run by Lectureworx. The amount of research that the Physio's are doing to expand their knowledge, and therefore ours -by sharing all their valuable information/ experience, is astounding.
