I have a particular interest in anxiety, especially social anxiety. Other areas of interest include: grief, trauma, relationship issues, career aspirations/transitions, anxiety disorders (in general) and men's mental health. I feel at times men get left "behind" in the health system and do not utilise services as well as they could so I'm keen to promote support around men's mental health and have done academic research in this area.

My unique expertise lies in helping clients live their preferred lives despite the obstacles and challenges they face. The energy of my work is focused on the description of clients aspirations, not an understanding of the clients problem. The focus of our session is directed toward what you want to achieve as opposed to what you want to leave behind. This is why it is highly valuable among individuals (adults, adolescents) couples, and groups

Everything I do in a session comes back to the premise of "unconditional positive regard" no matter what your struggles are and what you have done you are worthy of therapy and you can make changes. I really like to focus on your values and what are some simple changes you can make day to day to live a life that is value-driven. I work with clients that have troubles around motivation, mood worries, not being able to let things go, past trauma, trouble with parenting, postnatal and antenatal depression and anxiety and adjusting to parenthood. I also offer support in managing your day to day better, including work and finances.

I enjoy working with people from a diverse set of backgrounds and ages. I believe that therapy can bring about meaningful change for the individuals I work with. You may be wondering if therapy is the right approach for you. You may or may not know where to start or what to say. That is completely normal! My aim is to create a safe space where we can explore what brings you to therapy. I provide a personalised and flexible approach to help people get the most out of sessions and offer practical tools that can be used in everyday life. I can offer sessions outside normal business hours for those who need the flexibility.

Hi there, I am passionate about working with clients to achieve self compassion and self acceptance. Sometimes we need a different perspective on what's going on. I use a solution focused approach which means focusing on a way forward rather than delving into the past.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Christchurch are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Christchurch then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Christchurch, or Child Psychologists in Christchurch.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Christchurch psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Christchurch specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
