I use an integrative approach that draws on a range of therapeutic modalities including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), mindfulness, Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) as well as creative and somatic modalities.
Tēnā koe, I am a registered psychologist passionate about partnering with individuals, couples and families across the lifespan to enhance their wellbeing and to find sustainable solutions to a wide range of concerns. My practice is collaborative, empathetic, and evidence-based. I am also a trained mediator and am especially interested in supporting couples in conflict and families in transition (during and after separation). To this task, I bring a deep understanding of child development, family systems, parenting, and communication coaching. I have specialist training in child inclusive practices and high-conflict dynamics.

My foundational practice is based on Internal Family Systems (IFS) which I integrate with somatic healing.
As Bessel van der Kolk notes, trauma is specifically an event that overwhelms the central nervous system, altering the way we process and recall memories. “Trauma is not the story of something that happened back then," he adds. "It's the current imprint of that pain, horror, and fear living inside people.” I am a well-established health professional who has dedicated my professional life working on releasing trauma in a natural, nurturing way, returning my clients to their natural state of wholeness. I call this "The Journey Home". I work from a neuroscience perspective. Harmonizing all aspects of our being Mind, Body and Soul

I provide coaching using an embodied transformation model which integrates mind and body ( somatic ) coaching methods, mindfulness and centering practices to make the changes last.
I help women who are stressed, anxious, and questioning what they want in life to get clear on their purpose, direction and next steps. They generally want and need help to transform their personal life - particularly in the area of health, wellbeing, and relationships. They may be overwhelmed with personal, family and professional commitments and may feel depleted, burnout, or experiencing physical pain. Their goals are often (but not limited to) prioritizing time and selfcare for themselves, working on self-esteem/confidence/worth so that they can feel more empowered, and have agency over their personal and social life.

As a clinical arts therapist (AThR) I offer adolescents and adults an alternative to talk therapy and counselling through creative expression. Arts therapists can offer a variety of approaches such as art, movement, drama, writing, poetry, and sandplay. I work mostly with art materials but we are not limited to this form of expression. Clinical arts therapists in New Zealand are professional members of the Australian New Zealand Asian Creative Arts Therapy Association and are approved to provide services for agencies like ACC, WINZ, Oranga Tamariki and I Am Hope.

I work with all ages and specialise working with children, teens and young adults who are struggling. Challenges can come from anywhere; the loss of a loved one, a health condition, problems at school or work, anxiety, trauma, bullying, depression, attacks on dignity, abuse, or being spoken to in unhelpful ways. Problems can get you feeling overwhelmed, hopeless and stuck. I invite you to let me journey with you from that stuck place to hope and peace.

I see individuals and couples for a wide number of needs. I generally see clients above the age of 18. People come to counselling because they want changes in their lives and are unsure how to make those changes. Often they are stuck in stories or habits of the past , or traumas have locked them into unhelpful ways of being. People use therapy to achieve those goals and then move on.

I support you if you feel lost at sea without a clear idea of how to get through your current challenges. Our life experience includes resources and stressors. We can function with a fair degree of stress, however it doesn't take much to upset this balance leaving us feeling unprepared for what we are experiencing. I can help you explore your experience in a way that is safe for you to do so. I trust in your own inner knowing that given the space and time and a little guiding will support a growth in awareness. This leads to more choices being available for you to come into a relationship with life that works for you.

I help people rediscover their strengths, passions and purpose and find meaning, joy and happiness in their lives. Most of us experience a moment in our lives where we stop and take stock. This may come as a result of a big shock, the loss of a loved one, a relationship, a job or some other trauma that shakes us to our very core. Or it may just be a gnawing sense that there is something more to life than what you are currently experiencing. These big shocks or subtle gnawings can start to erode our sense of happiness and fulfilment. We may experience depression, sadness, a sense of isolation, confusion or feel deeply overwhelmed.

I frequently also employ somatic experiencing, systemic therapy and other modalities.
As an ACC therapist, I help people cope with sexual abuse trauma, brain injuries, chronic pain, childhood abuse or neglect, and the effects of family violence. Private clients often come with "problems of living", including grief and bereavement, health challenges, relationship problems and work-related stress. Others seek help for anxiety and depression, or for more serious mental health difficulties, including bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder. I also apply my skills in helping people sifting through complicated issues in the domain of wealth counselling.

I offer psychotherapy in Birkenhead and Warkworth. Psychotherapy is a counselling service that helps to understand who we are deep down, how our life experiences have affected and shaped us and how this sometimes leads to self-defeating behaviours, a lot of which happens unconsciously. These can manifest as stress, anxiety, depression or feeling overwhelmed - making life challenging.

Embodied Emotion
Greetings. My name is Hamish and I'm here to support you in making peace with anxiety and strong emotions. My modality is a "bottom-up" therapy, based on awareness of emotions in the body. We can spend our lives avoiding, resisting, and guarding against unpleasant feelings and situations. My invitation is for you to find a safe, supported space, where you can learn to be present with your emotions, without feeling overwhelmed. You will learn to pivot from distress to calm, without ignoring difficult feelings, to relax and move THROUGH difficult emotions, and you will take the lead in your own healing.
