CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST | MNZCCP

I have been working in private practice in Auckland since 2000, and as a clinical psychologist since 1992. I spent 7 years in the UK where I worked as a psychologist with a wide range of adult mental health issues, as well as doing ongoing training in Cognitive Therapies, including Schema Therapy & Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, and supervising trainees. While in the UK I also trained in an integrative approach for 5 years and bring understanding and skills from this to interweave with the Cognitive Approach.
Most recently I have completed a training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples, and I find this work to be both effective and rewarding . I am also part of a group doing ongoing training in EMDR.
My style involves teaching skills to manage problematic symptoms, and to identify unhelpful thought patterns; along with emotional processing of past issues to enable the development of new pathways ahead for the future.

REGISTERED PSYCHOLOGIST | MNZPsS

I have 22 years experience in helping people overcome their difficulties in a variety of settings both in New Zealand and the UK. In the last 12 years I have specialised in the use of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) for treatment of Anxiety Disorders, Depression and Substance Use Disorders. This includes Panic Disorder, phobias obsessive compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress and generalised anxiety. These issues can occur alongside problematic alcohol or other drug use or depression. I have been involved in teaching and supervision of other psychologists, as well as research in the area of Anxiety Disorders with anaphylaxis and substance abuse.
In working with survivors of traumatic events, I use EMDR which, like CBT, is supported by extensive research as a highly effective therapy.
