I am an experienced Registered Psychotherapist (PBANZ) and member of the New Zealand Association of Psychotherapists (NZAP) with a Certificate of Advanced Clinical Practice. I work in general practice based at Wellpark Avenue, Grey Lynn, Auckland, New Zealand.
I work with you as a person, whatever your diagnosis or difficulties. My practice is grounded in psychoanalysis, as “still the most coherent and intellectually satisfying view of the mind.” (Eric Kandel, Neuroscientist and Nobel Prize winner 2000).
I practice with individuals and couples, in groups and online, and I offer professional supervision to therapists, teachers, managers and artists (wherever understanding unconscious processes is key to the success of the practice).
Most often you will come to see me because you are struggling with some aspect of your life: This might be depression or loss, recovery from trauma or breakdown, mental illness, or difficulties with relationships. However you don’t need to be struggling for us to work together - you may simply want a greater sense of aliveness, to understand yourself better, to feel more ‘human’. Sometimes the reasons you gave yourself for beginning psychotherapy turn out not to be so important.
In individual psychotherapy I lend an ‘imagining ear’ listening carefully to what you have to say and also listening ‘between the lines’, as it were, for what remains unspoken. We engage in a ‘healing conversation’: Not just an intellectual enterprise, but a process of ‘emotional transformation’.
Conjoint or couple psychotherapy offers us an opportunity to work through your individual difficulties in the context of your relationship. The aim is for you to become freer to live more fulfilling lives together and apart.
Group psychotherapy allows you to see the world and yourself through other people’s eyes and creates an environment where you can experiment with ways of being in the world.
As the rhythm of our meeting develops over time, your psychotherapy becomes something you can ‘lean into’, something outside your everyday life that nevertheless takes its place in your inner world as a resource to draw upon. We make use of your remarkably human ability to have one thing stand for another: Our relationship, your process, and my consulting room all have their part to play.
In individual and conjoint psychotherapy we generally meet once or twice a week, but sometimes it may be helpful to meet more or less often. My task is to be a good student of you, your life and your relationships, approaching you with an open mind.
Currently I conduct a psychotherapy group on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30.
