Biography

Ko te Moana ki te Tonga o Haina tōku moana. I whanau mai au i te rohe o Hongipua. Ko Tāmaki Makaurau tōku kāinga hou. Ko Kaimātai Hinengaro tōku tūranga mahi. Ko Jennifer Wai Hei tōku ingoa. Kia ora, my name is Jennifer and I am a Clinical Psychologist. I provide psychological therapy for children, adolescents and adults online and in Auckland (Albany or Parnell). The most important person to my approach is your experience of it, and so I invite your ongoing feedback of your experience. I am interested in your strengths coming through from your individual, family and/or cultural history as part as understanding where you have come from as well as how your difficulties came to be. I also want to keep the environment you are in in mind and how you want to thrive in your particular circumstances, especially for those from culturally diverse or marginalised backgrounds. My therapy approach draw most often on Acceptance Commitment Therapy, family and attachment work, and mindfulness, and Emotionally Focused Therapy, though I do draw flexibly from a wide range of ideas and techniques across the field. My interests include: - Anxiety, OCD - Depression - Family relationships - Intergenerational trauma - Grief and loss - Loneliness - Adjustment issues - Perfectionism - Procrastination - Burnout (e.g. carer, work, parental) - Cultural or cross-cultural difficulties - Impact of wider social issues, social media, discrimination and/or stigma on wellbeing I have a particular interest in the richness of cultures (such as in languages and metaphors) as a resource for supporting a person’s wellbeing. I have some (varying) levels of fluency in Cantonese and Mandarin. For children, teenagers or other dependents, the work I offer will almost always involve working with parents/families as a young person’s most important support system. You are also welcome to enquire about my availability directly if you have particular days/times in mind (You can send me a message on my TalkingWorks profile if you would like to get in contact with me without making an appointment booking: https://www.talkingworks.co.nz/listing/dr-jennifer-liu ). I can offer most flexibility when it comes to online appointments. Face to face appointments may be subject to venue availability from time to time and if cancelled in under 48 hours notice, a cancellation fee may apply to cover the room booking.
