|Bio:||I have been practicing clinical psychology since 2010. I was trained at the University of Canterbury and have worked in various health and rehabilitation settings.
I use a therapeutic approach called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which is an active treatment focused on making effective changes in life.
I aim to be genuine, open, and empathic - the foundations of an effective therapeutic relationship.
My practice is guided by psychological science, especially as it relates to emotions, motivation, and behaviour change.
I live in Christchurch with my wife (also a clinical psychologist) and our two thoroughly analysed children. I am a keen trail runner and try to practice what I preach when it comes to living well whilst managing the inevitable stresses of life.
