Background

I am a Clinical Psychologist with experience working with adult mental health in the community. I am registered under the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act (2003) as a Clinical Psychologist, and I am a member of the NZ College of Clinical Psychologists (NZCCP).

I provide psychological assessment, diagnosis and evidence-based treatment for a variety of mental health and emotional difficulties, including:

  1. Depression
  2. Worry/Stress/Anxiety
  3. Anger
  4. Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress
  5. Compulsions and Obsessions
  6. Panic Attacks
  7. Drug and Alcohol Addiction
  8. Loss and Grief
  9. Interpersonal Relationship Difficulties

My approach to therapy is guided primarily by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, however, I also incorporate other evidence-based therapy modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy. I work collaboratively with the client to ensure a shared understanding of their difficulties, and the learning of new skills and strategies to help move forward.

Fees

A therapy session is usually 50-60 minutes. The fee is $160 (GST inclusive) per session. Fee is payable on attendance by cash or by bank transfer within 3 days after your session.

There is no charge if you cancel an appointment with 24 hours. However, a 50% fee may apply if a session is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, and the full fee may apply for failure to attend a booked session.
