Rob Hunter

Psychotherapy | Mindfulness | Self development

I have extensive and varied training in psychodynamic and behavioural therapy approaches, eastern meditation practices, and empirically supported mindfulness approaches for managing your emotions.

My depth and breadth of experience in the mental health field, including work with refugees and asylum seekers, enables me to work across a wide spectrum of mental health problems with groups, individuals and couples.

As an experienced practitioner and instructor of Tai Chi, my approach to mindfulness along with my training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) can help you to overcome long standing destructive behaviors, and difficulties controlling and managing anger and other negative emotions.

In recent times I gained experience working clinically with refugees from a wide range of ethnic groups. I have a lot of experience using interpreters and working virtually via zoom with clients as a result of Covid 19 lockdowns.

Q About Rob

After leaving secondary school I enrolled in a Bachelor of Arts degree in Dunedin majoring in social anthropology, upon completion of this study I went to Auckland University and completed a Master of Arts degree majoring in Maori studies.

In between completing my Masters degree in Anthropology and starting psychotherapy training I worked as a residential social worker and tradesman.

Over the past four years I have been working clinically with refugees.
