With training and qualifications in Counselling, Psychology, and NLP, I help others manage and overcome grief, trauma, anxiety, and phobias. I also empower people to restore their confidence, self-esteem, health, well-being, and better relationships.
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 provide a safe, empathic, and collaborative space in which I offer psychological assessment and treatment to children, teenagers and adults. Treatment planning and interventions are designed with the client and outcomes are monitored. I have had the privilege to work with a range of people, to support and empower them to reach the goals they desire. I have worked with low moods, depression, anxiety, self-harm, loss and grief, stress, workplace issues, parenting issues, relationship issues and anger problems.
I am a trained Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and a Mental Health Nurse with over 18 years experience working in Mental Health. I work with people affected by a range of mental health conditions and I am passionate about helping people gain control of their lives and empowering them to move forward. CBT takes a collaborative approach meaning we work together to reach your goals, giving you a good understanding of whats happening for you, strategies to be able to manage it and time to off load and problem solve anything else happening in your life.
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.

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.

I am Mandy Paget; What I offer is being driven with a passion for walking beside my clients, for their growth and insight like I had received in my time of Therapy, working through Child Abuse, Sexual assault, and Mental and Physical abuse. Through my journey of rebuilding myself, I challenge my addiction to alcohol, my dangerous decision making, and my mental well-being. Now I like to think I am my unique self and am honest and, as some past clients have said, persistent. I recognise we are all different, and the strength I have is that I, too, have walked the path.
I am a family therapist and psychologist specialising in child and adolescent issues. I have worked in this area for more than 20 years. I have specific skills in eating disorders, anxiety and depression, attachment and family relationships.
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
Do you find yourself lost in your thoughts? Are these thoughts constantly on your mind that keep you from living your life? Through the life obstacles and challenges, there is a story behind it. You deserved to be heard for yourself or your relationship with your loved ones. My journey with my clients is all unique. I am here to listen if you are experiencing anxiety, stress, anger or depression. When past traumas or present issues create road bumps in your life, I can work collaboratively to help you make sense of it all.

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. I also embrace acceptance and commitment therapy which focuses on accepting our feelings and committing to meaningful actions.
Kia ora, you have found courage to look for support. I imagine that things are out of balance and your inner world would appreciate some harmony. The courage you have found is a quality that you were born with, like creativity, confidence, clarity and compassion. These qualities that you were born with still exist within, remain undamaged and have the wisdom of healing. Over the years we may have lost site of these qualities, buried with multiple parts like fear, anxiety, anger, shame and conditions of worth. You can return as the rightful leader in your life allowing your parts to relax and heal
