|Bio:||I'm Mieke, a Clinical Psychologist based in New Plymouth, New Zealand. I see adults with a wide range of difficulties for therapy, including but not limited to anxiety (worry, feeling on edge, panicking, avoiding things or places you fear, finding social situations intolerable), stress, depression, relationship issues, communication difficulties, and grief & loss.
I have worked in a range of settings providing assessment and therapy, including with older adults (65+ years) at Taranaki DHB; with adults aged 18-65 years experiencing a wide range of difficulties at Counties Manukau DHB; and as a Senior Professional Clinician at Massey University supervising Postgraduate students in the CBT Diploma. I have also worked in private practice in Ponsonby, Auckland, seeing adults struggling primarily with stress and anxiety.
I also really enjoy teaching, and have lectured at Massey University, guest lectured at AUT, and provided workshops to health professionals including GPs. I have co-authored several publications one of which appeared in the Journal of Clinical Psychology.
