Welcome to my Website !

I have been practising Clinical Psychology, therapy and counselling for 36 years.

I am registered as a Clinical Psychologist under the Psychologist Act and am accountable to the New Zealand Psychologist’s Board.

I have experience assessing and helping clients with a wide range of psychological issues.

My specialty areas are Depression, Psychological trauma (e.g. earthquake, physical injury, sexual abuse), Anxiety Disorders , Traumatic Brain Injury, Couples Therapy, Clinical Hypnosis, and Sport Psychology.

I am also interested in how we function optimally, and what approaches, beliefs and attitudes, allow us to manage life’s demands, and improve our emotional wellbeing.

It is a privilege to meet and work with clients.

A priority in sessions is that you feel heard, understood, and have your feelings and concerns acknowledged and clarified.

The sessions are collaborative, focusing on positive, achievable goals, at your pace.

My experience and belief is that we have the capacity to resolve personal and interpersonal issues and improve our emotional wellbeing.

We all have considerable personal resources. It’s how to tap into them.

I am respectful of individual values, cultural or spiritual backgrounds.

Many of the anecdotes that are helpful in sessions have been learned from the wisdom and resourcefulness of clients I have seen.

There is considerable evidence based literature on psychological approaches to treat and manage Clinical Disorders, and on ways to promote personal growth, develop life skills, and enhance performance e.g. in Sport, Music, Academia, Business.

There is also considerable literature and understanding on approaches to enhance the quality of our relationships.

As a Psychologist I can work with you in the way that suits you best, whether in therapy, counselling or Coaching, to help you achieve your goals.

Member of Christchurch Psychology.
