Psychologist in Edson and Hinton

Welcome to the website of Core Psychological Services and Hein Swanepoel, your local psychologist in Edson AB and Hinton AB.

I have been providing psychological assessment services to rural communities throughout Alberta and BC for many years, and I currently offer a range of formal psychological evaluations from my offices in Edson and Hinton. While psychological assessments can be requested for many different reasons, the most common referrals I receive are for psycho-educational assessments of children and adults, parenting and child custody assessments, forensic psychological assessments, and various work-related assessments.

My professional experience includes working in a wide range of settings such as hospitals, schools, community mental health clinics, employee assistance programs, and private practice. I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families throughout Alberta and BC. I am a registered psychologist in the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia, and a member in good standing with the Canadian Psychological Association. Academically, I completed a bachelor degree in social sciences, an honor’s bachelor degree in psychology, a master’s degree in counselling psychology, and a master’s degree in business administration. Furthermore, I am currently in the process of completing a doctoral degree in clinical psychology. In addition to my formal academic schooling, I also completed advanced post-graduate training in various areas of psychological testing and assessment.

Please have a look around my website, and feel free to get a hold of me if you have any further questions. The easiest way to reach me is by sending an email to or to give me a call at (780) 809 5177.

I am looking forward to assisting you with your psychological assessment needs.
