BA, MSC, PG Dip Clin Psych, MNZPsS
I am currently on maternity leave and will not be returning to work until approximately April 2018
I am a Clinical Psychologist (Registered) based in New Plymouth, Taranaki who has worked in a variety of settings for the past sixteen years.
I meet with individuals and/or families/whanau or where there are concerns about behaviour, development, emotional wellbeing and/or mental health. There may also be issues with family/whanau relationships.
I help identify what are the problems? How did they start and why? Also, what can be done to help make changes? I also provide a variety of therapies to address the issues such as individual therapy/counselling and/or working with the family/whanau.
If there are concerns about a child or young person’s development or progress, including cognitive issues, I can provide comprehensive psychological assessments that focus on their needs and identify supports that may be required.
Some people may qualify for funded counselling/therapy. Please contact me to discuss the criteria and process involved or see here for more information.
If you are considering attending counselling/therapy and want to know what it involves, I have prepared an information sheet that can be viewed or downloaded called Frequently asked questions about therapy or counselling. I also have a pamphlet on explaining therapy to children and adolescents if your young person has been referred to a psychologist or counsellor.
