SPECIALISED THERAPEUTIC SUPPORT FOR
TEENAGERS, ADULTS, COUPLES & FAMILIES
Best psychologist for Autism in Auckland
Exhausted trying to conform to everyone else's expectations?
On the outside it might seem like you've got it together.
People could even describe you as friendly, hard-working, admirable.
Maybe you've noticed relationships suffering or work performance declining.
Perhaps your emotions are all over the place, you've lost motivation or
everything just feels too difficult. On the inside you're struggling.
Working together in an atmosphere that's warm, intelligent, creative and
focused on change, we'll develop a therapy space where deep shared understanding,
self-knowledge and empowerment open doors to your true strengths, purpose and passion.
It's tough when you're struggling to fit in
Try as you might, organising yourself, completing work, navigating friendships, peer pressure, loneliness, managing expectations... the challenges feel endless, and overwhelming.
You find ways to cope but the strategies you're using can end up causing more distress.
Feeling distressed in an environment which doesn't allow you to flourish
does not mean there's anything wrong with you.
Empowerment comes from valuing and embracing who you are so we won't focus on deficits.
You'll not be judged and criticised or told what to do either.
I'll help you manage painful emotions and understand what's causing them.
We'll look at the bigger picture to understand what you can and can't control and explore
how others might assist you.
We'll develop goals, build on your strengths and sharpen the tools you need to succeed.
Thirty years' experience working with people of all ages in Education, Mental Health,
Disability and Private Practice settings, I provide neurodiversity-affirming therapeutic support for neurodivergent thinkers and their loved ones.
Our collaborative, strengths-based approach carefully explores your concerns and
challenges while building self-awareness, healing, confidence and personal growth.
