As part of life, we all run into unexpected surprises, stresses, and losses. We change. These transitions can have an impact on our feelings, creating sometimes physical problems and/or impairing our ability to cope. Reaching out for help can be a scary thing for many people, and I am committed to help you access the resources you need to live life with integrity and quality. As a therapist, I believe in building a warm, trusting and collaborative relationship with you so that together we can get through your difficulties, developing and expanding your confidence in reaching your goals.

Stress, worry, burn-out, low mood, health challenges, sleep problems and grief can all impact on how we live and enjoy our lives. I'm Miriam, a health psychologist with well over a decade of clinical experience. I get to know my clients, their struggles and their strengths and work with them to help improve their well-being. I bring kindness and humour to my sessions (and the occasional F-bomb if that works for my clients!). I love using and sharing psychology strategies with my clients. I am based in Cambridge in the Waikato; I can see people in person or via Zoom.

I enjoy working with clients who have challenges in their lives, are open to new approaches to managing those, and are motivated to work towards achieving change. Clients don't need to have all the answers but it is important that they are motivated to work together with me to find solutions. I enjoy working with clients who are open to exploring patterns in their thinking and behaviour, and who value the process of self growth. I particularly enjoy working with professionals and people who are able to attain achievements in their lives, but notice unhelpful life patterns which interfere with their goals or values.

I work with children, young people, adults, and groups to support them to stand up to problems and develop preferred ways of being. I work with clients to identify, reflect upon, and achieve the hopes and goals that are important to them in their life and relationships. I provide professional supervision to practitioners in the fields of health and social practice (including counselling, occupational therapy, nursing, midwifery, social work, and human services etc). I believe that a collaborative, safe and respectful therapeutic relationship enhances emotion regulation and promotes self-awareness and resilience.

Seeking psychological help is a courageous step and I strive to make it understandable and effective for clients. Please feel free to email me. I tend to work in a transparent manner, explaining what we do and why, to increase your insight and engagement. A good “fit” between client and psychologist is key, and I would encourage you to look until you find that. I primarily offer Clinical Psychology assessment and therapy for the issues a client is experiencing, offering evidence-based strategies and coping skills. There are times when self-help, a good website, or a proven therapy book (bibliotherapy) will be what I advise too.

I am an ACC registered trauma therapy provider. I am a therapist who has worked in the addiction recovery field since 2001. A high percentage of people suffering with addiction also have experience of trauma, and the use of substance becomes a coping strategy for managing the pain associated with trauma. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as my preferred model of therapy, I also have training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodrama, Transactional Analysis and others. Each persons therapeutic journey is different, so we will work together to tailor your therapy to your specific needs to create your valued life.

I work with clients to help them clarify and resolve the issues they want to focus on. I consider it important to be able to work with clients in a way that they perceive as helpful and bring in a variety of methods. I have a particular interest in how the body holds trauma from past events such as sexual abuse, violence, lack of early safe attachment and other traumatic events and how this can be released and new memories created. I work in a holistic way and can help clients explore ways to help with anxiety and depression such as mindfulness, breathwork, meditation and yoga.

I work with those people who are seeking relief from symptoms of depression and anxiety, those who are being challenged by relationship issues or would like to explore more meaningful connection to themselves. We are often lost in the business of family and work and lose sight of what we need or want most from life. I can help you rediscover those aspects. Often it is loneliness or isolation caused by life circumstances or trauma and of course the ever present world situation of Covid 19 which we have to negotiate now.

I was born in South Africa but have lived in New Zealand most of my life. I have had many life experiences such as volunteering in the NZ Fire Service (11 years) and travelling and volunteering in Africa. My passion for counselling grew as I spent time with people in my various experiences and travels, and discovered my desire for better skills to more effectively listen and help people navigate through their shared life experiences with me. I consider it a deep privilege to share a welcoming, safe, and honoring space with a person who chooses to share their footsteps with me. I am also a faith based counselling service (Christian).
