Dr Isabelle Miclette

Charcoal Psychology


Experienced clinical psychologist working with adolescents, adults, and couples. Specialises in anxiety, stress and worry. Online and in-person appointments available.


Areas of Special Interest

I specialise in anxiety and relationship challenges. I am experienced in working with typical challenges of life; losses, challenges, change, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, low mood, and avoidance; as well as personality disorders.


Counselling/Therapy Services

I have a reputation of someone who “cuts to the chase”, and can help you build your best possible life by gently challenging you and “swimming alongside you”.

An initial assessment is the first step in putting our heads together, see what is going on for you, and whether psychotherapy can be of any help or not.


Counselling/Therapy Approach

My main modality of treatment is CBT-based, augmented by ACT, DBT, EFT, IRT, as well as mindfulness and compassion-based approaches.


Background and Experience

I have over 13 years experience working in. NZ in both public and private sectors.


Supervision Services

I provide professional supervision for mental health practitioners.

Q Testimonials

"As opposed to previous professionals I have worked with, I now think of our sessions as a ’lab room’ for the real world.These teachings over our time together have been utterly profound. Making me aware of the wider picture and consequently guidance to a different path. I now have a career and an in a position in life I never thought I was capable or worthy of."

"Isabelle was most helpful in helping me understand how to better communicate with my elderly mother whose mental and emotional wellbeing has suffered from an extended period in Covid-imposed lockdown."

"Dr. Isabelle is very professional & approachable & attentive. She has given me good coping techniques (including breathing skills) whilst also provided me with different perspectives. She can also empathise such thatI feel comfortable to discuss with her."

"I’ve been seeing Isabelle for almost 3 months, and when I met her, I wasn’t in a good place. I had a long-standing problem with drugs and alcohol and was swimming in a mess of negative ruminating thoughts. Isabelle is not the first person I have sought help from in the past and immediately I felt a connection, something I haven’t been able to establish with previous counsellors. I went into this with two broad goals of growing emotionally and spiritually and very soon down the track I already see myself achieving these. I am now drug and alcohol free, and mentally in the best space of my life and Isabelle has played a key role in this, coaching me through this wonderful journey. I love the way Isabelle makes me explore my thoughts and I walk away from every catch-up with something that helps me build and grow and become more in touch with myself. I feel well and in control and despite this I am always looking forward to my next visit."
