Life can throw us all sorts of challenging experiences, and at times we can get stuck - in mood, behaviours, relationships and in unhelpful patterns or ways of coping. It can be hard to know how to navigate through these difficulties. Psychological therapy is about making sense and meaning from events and discovering new ways of relating to ourselves and to others. I provide therapy according to your goals and needs with the intention of helping you being closer to the person you want to be and be doing the things that are important to you.

Kia ora, I'm Sheena (she/her). If you are feeling stuck, it can sometimes be hard to see choices and options. A specific event or transition may be impacting you. It could be difficulties in relationships. Or, anxiety, depression, or something else, may be getting in the way of the life you want to live. I work with my clients, to create space between the person and the “problem”. Within this space we can explore how experiences and beliefs from your past may be shaping your present, identify how you would prefer your life to be, and discover the action that you can take to get there.

I am a psychotherapist, a supervisor, and a sex therapist; these disciplines intertwine and inform my clinical practice every day. My approach is psychodynamic, which means that you and I will work together, which will help us to unravel the meanings and interpretations that sometimes are affecting the way we see our life and the patterns we find ourselves in. When psychotherapy meets sex therapy, this tool encompasses all and every aspect of a person’s expressions of life.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist and I work with adults over the age of 18. I offer individual therapy in a safe therapeutic space where individuals can explore and understand themselves better. Therapy is a pathway that can help individuals to become more in tune with their authentic selves and strengthen their relationships with others. Psychotherapy aims to add depth to life and relational experiences by assisting individuals to understand what is causing them mental distress. Through greater self-awareness and exploration, individuals are likely to experience an increase in emotional, professional, and relational growth.

Amongst the most prolific mindfulness based therapists in Australasia Glenda has been quoted as saying her approach is "therapy with a coaching edge." Assisting clients with issues such as ADHD, substance abuse, BPD, grief, life coaching, relationships, trauma... In her experience, there isn't a 'presenting issue' that mindfulness and strength-based psychological interventions won't aid. 15 years experience in helping people learn to regulate their nervous system, and cope with life challenges, major life events. Ultimately, Glenda believes there is a place where all of us will experience life as "wild, precious, and purposeful."

I am a clinical psychologist with extensive experience with a focus on providing therapy to adults and older teenagers experiencing a range of psychological changes negatively impacting on you and probably on those closest to you. These changes can include feelings of anxiety and depression brought on by the impact of external events, adjustments to changing circumstances or for reasons that seem inexplicable to you. I try to create a warm, supportive, collaborative and non-judgemental space for you to explore and better understand your current difficulties, and find a path to a more comfortable sense of well-being.
