MB.ChB. (Cape Town), Grad Dip Psychotherapy (AUT), MNZAP (Advanced Practice Certificate)
I practice full-time as a psychotherapist and supervisor from Eden Practice and work in a holistic, longer-term way that is largely based in contemporary psychoanalytic theory (Inter-subjective Self Psychology and Relational Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Trauma Theory and Systems Thinking).
I have worked in private practice here in Auckland for more than twenty years, pursuing the passionate interest in psychotherapy that I developed through my medical training and subsequent work as a doctor in holistic general practice, community mental health and then hospice. (Please note that I am no longer registered as a medical doctor and do not prescribe medication).
I am a full member of the New Zealand Association of Psychotherapists with an Advanced Practice Certificate. I am also registered with PBANZ – The Psychotherapists Board of Aotearoa New Zealand.
I have experience helping people who have had difficulty coping with a wide range of issues, such as:
· dealing with the impacts of childhood neglect, trauma and abuse
· negotiating life changes
· relationship and intimacy difficulties
· sexuality and sexual identity
· loss and grief
· depression and anxiety
· intergenerational trauma
· living with chronic illness
· boarding school
I also work as a supervisor, teacher and facilitator, providing individual and group supervision for counsellors, psychotherapists, doctors, nurses and other health professionals.
