|Bio:||I am a Clinical Psychologist and am passionate about working with people to help them to develop mental wellness and resilience.
I work with a range of issues and disorders including low mood, depression, anxiety (social anxiety, separation anxiety, OCD), sleep disturbances, perfectionism, stress, burnout and low self-esteem. I have a particular interest in work-related stress and developing mental resilience.
I currently work in private clinical practice, as well as running mental wellbeing training for businesses (www.mindtherapy.co.nz). I previously worked at Auckland District Health Board. I also lecture on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) at Auckland University of Technology (AUT).
It takes courage to reach out for support, and I offer assessment, diagnosis and treatment, where we can work together to create positive change. I place an emphasis on working collaboratively in an empowering manner using evidence-based treatments including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), mindfulness skills and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). My honours degree in Human Biology allows me to bring a strong understanding of physiological processes within the body.
I work in a professional, warm, and non-judgemental way according to your goals and needs to help you to lead a fulfilling and purposeful life.
