Nadine Isler, Registered Psychologist, BA (Hons) Grad Dip (Psych) MSc (Psych) PGDipPsychPrac, MNZPsS

**Please note: As I am going on leave shortly, I am not currently taking on any new clients. However, I am happy to send you a list of Psychologists that you may wish to get in touch with.

I am a Registered Psychologist with several years experience in the health industry. My background is in Health Psychology, and I have a special interest in anxiety and depression. My most recent role saw me working with adolescents and adults in a primary-health medical centre, seeing a variety of presentations. I use a blend of therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioural, Acceptance and Commitment and Dialectic Behavioural Therapies. Mindfulness training is often an extremely helpful part of treatment. 

 

I provide assessment and evidence based treatment for a wide range of mental health issues, including:

  • Anxiety disorders (including OCD, phobias, panic attacks)

  • Depression (whether it's been going on a while, or you're not sure what exactly you're experiencing)

  • Mood disorders

  • Personality disorders

  • Stress

  • Eating issues

  • General health issues

  • Medication management

  • Relationship issues

  • Transitions

  • Self esteem and assertiveness

  • Identity issues (e.g. sexuality)

  • Pain management (including relaxation and mindfulness techniques)

I work with adults and adolescents, with a particular focus on the adolescent-young adult cohort. If something you're dealing with is not on the above list, contact me and ask - if I'm not the right therapist I may be able to point you in the right direction. 

I am ACC registered, and WINZ approved. 


My approach

Professionalism, confidentiality and training are all essential to the practice of psychology. But beyond that, the way I like to work is to see past the condition to the person I'm working with. I believe it's essential to work in a collaborative, transparent and productive way, ensuring that you as the client feel heard, held, and empowered in a partnership in the therapeutic process. This means that we'll set goals together, develop a treatment plan together, discuss progress, and you'll be encouraged to let me know if you'd like any changes in the way we're working. That includes regular check-ins on whether you're seeing the results you sought therapy for. 

Therapy is often very hard, emotional work and it's important to me that we develop a relationship of trust, so your progress can occur within a safe and comfortable environment. 

Questions and open discussions are always encouraged.
