**Please note: I am currently on leave and not taking on new clients, until approximately July 2019. Thank you for your understanding.
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)
General health issues
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.
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.
