Psychological health is not merely the absence of symptoms, it is the positive presence of inner capabilities and resources that allow people to live with a greater sense of freedom and possibility.
– Jonathan Shedler, Author
I welcome adults of all ages, cultures, backgrounds, genders and sexualities and offer psychodynamic psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and comfortable environment.
I have experience working with a variety of concerns including:
Psychodynamic psychotherapy focuses on the psychological roots of emotional suffering. It’s goals are a growth in self-awareness and understanding of how the past influences the present, not just to alleviate the obvious symptoms but to help people lead healthier lives. This is facilitated by identifying unhelpful patterns and examining the most important relationships and experiences in your life. The aim of this approach is free speech – for you to be able to talk about whatever is on your mind.
Research has found that psychodynamic psychotherapy is effective for personality and somatic disorders, anxiety, depression, complex and/or chronic mental distress, and that the benefits not only endure after therapy ends, but increase over time.
As a qualified, clinical psychotherapist I have experience working in both the public and private sectors. Previously I have worked for the lead agency in Auckland that supports survivors of sexual harm, Lifespan Counselling and Rehab, Akoranga Integrated Medical Centre and the AUT Psychotherapy clinic.
My Masters dissertation focused on effective approaches for working with those diagnosed with psychosis and schizophrenia.
