I am a Registered Psychologist and have completed both my undergraduate and postgraduate studies here at Massey University. I have over 20 years' experience working in mental health. My specialist training is in treating anxiety, phobic and compulsive disorders, and in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) which can help people manage difficult emotions and build resilience to distress. Several years ago I started facilitating a survival skills training group for people who self-harm and struggle with intense emotions. At Massey I have tutored extramural psychology courses, assisted in research for the psychology clinics CBT depression study, and helped students who have special needs with exam invigilating. Currently I see students individually and also facilitate the "Balance Group" - a weekly mental health and wellbeing group, the "Anxiety Group" - a 10 week managing anxiety programme, and on request the "Managing Bulimia" group. I work within an evidence-based framework and can provide psychological assessment, treatment and counselling services. I love supporting students as they succeed at University.
