About Romar Muir
Mr. Romar Muir completed his B.Sc. Psychology (Hons) and M.Sc. in Clinical psychology from the University of the West Indies. He has 6 years of experience conducting psychometric assessments and statistical data analysis, 4 years of teaching at the undergraduate level, and 2 years of experience providing guidance and counselling to teenagers and young adults.
He has considerable experience conducting psychometric assessment of personality, cognition, emotions, and educational achievement. He has a strong interest in helping persons with learning style differences to understand the nature of their learning styles, and to promote compensatory strategies to overcome skill deficits.
In terms of research interests, he seeks a greater understanding of the nature of reading and language deficits to better inform policy and curriculum development. Specifically, he is interested in the process of language acquisition, and the relationship between symbolic information processing and the development of phonologic and orthographic skills.
He views the process of psychotherapy as the ultimate development of the character and is interested in increasing self-awareness and mindfulness through deep introspection and reality testing. Specifically, he uses Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) to give insights into inconsistent thought and behaviour patterns that contribute to difficulties in our daily lives, and to systematically through incremental steps, help individuals move towards their highest level of functioning. He is distinctly attuned to the existential conflicts in the human condition, and is concerned about helping others navigate the difficulties of life through self-exploration and growth.
