A handwriting analyst and forensic handwriting examiner, Graphanex is in the business of examining handwriting to highlight potential fraud and answer tough questions about personality.

We provide forensic handwriting examination services and online and contact classes for professionals who want to learn about forensic handwriting examination and handwriting analysis for personality profiling.

It is important to note that these are two very different fields of the study of handwriting and require very different approaches and you should ensure your handwriting analyst has specialised in the relevant field.

About Dr. Cecelia Rosa

Dr. Rosa’s interest in analysing handwriting started approximately 18 years ago as a result of her knowledge and training (Doctorate in Educational Psychology) with special interest in the link between cognition and the neuromuscular system which is concerned with how the muscular and nervous systems work together and how it impacts on handwriting.

Today, Dr. Rosa is a teacher of forensic handwriting examination to students in South Africa and outside in Africa and a teacher of the psychology of handwriting to clinical & counselling psychologists and human resource practitioners.

She has developed, teaches and assesses separate courses, for each of these disciplines within handwriting examination since the theoretical frameworks for these disciplines differ although there are overlaps such as an understanding of handwriting features as the basis.
