Registered Clinical Psychologist Experienced in Supporting Change Compassionately

I offer ACC sensitive claims and Mental Injury Assessments, Professional Supervision and Training Workshops (live and via zoom).

As an Accredited EMDR Practitioner I also have some occasional availability for clients experiencing the effects of trauma.

My specialist areas are Trauma, Dissociation and Non-Suicidal Self-Injury using the APEX© model which I have designed. 

My professional training is available via GROW Limited.  

Sorry currently no availability for therapy referrals

Whakatauki (Māori saying)

To me this whakatauki captures Te Tiriti o Waitangi principles to guide me in my mahi:

Nā tō rourou, nā taku rourou ka ora ai te iwi
With your food basket and my food basket the people will thrive.
