Biography

Hi, I’m Iain. I am an experienced, creative, counsellor, therapist and supervisor based in Bucklands Beach - East Auckland and Online. I offer short and long term therapeutic services tailored to the person. My practice is inclusive and minority friendly. I support adults and adolescents with a wide range of issues including trauma, abuse, grief and loss, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, spirituality, identity and life transitions. I employ an Integrated therapeutic approach with a humanistic/person-centred base, incorporating psychodynamic, behavioural/skills-focused and somatic/body-based approaches according to the needs of the individual and depending on the duration of therapy. I provide supervision to counsellors and therapists who provide therapeutic services in agencies, schools, mental health settings and private practice. I am ACC registered (for sensitive claims around sexual abuse). Above all, my approach fosters a supportive therapeutic relationship to enable clients (and supervisees) to build on existing strengths and capacities, explore challenges and vulnerabilities, and guide further growth and development. Effective therapy will support you to build the capacities you need to live more expansively in the present – resulting in increased personal wellbeing, connection to self and others, and a life that feels more manageable, fulfilling, and meaningful. My qualifications include a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapy, Bachelor Degree and Diploma in Counselling and I hold full membership with the New Zealand Association of Counsellors.
