I am a registered Consultant Clinical and Coaching Psychologist with 20 years of experience working in the mental health field and over 12,000 face-to-face hours. Over these years I have filled clinical, leadership, training, coaching, consulting, and community roles. For much of my career I have worked with highly troubled people often stuck in complex and rigid systems. I have worked in Early Psychosis Intervention, with adult community teams, and in an acute inpatient unit with people who were acutely troubled and distressed. I have also been Professional Lead for Adult Mental Health Services, worked in Quality and Improvement overseeing improvement and change initiatives, and have volunteered for many years on the Boards of community groups such as the International Society for Psychological and Social approaches to Psychosis -NZ branch (ISPS-NZ) and the Eating Difficulties Education Network (EDEN). I am committed to continuing professional development, training, and supervision to ensure I offer you the best service. I am a member of the New Zealand Psychological Society (NZPsS) and belong to the Coaching Psychology Special Interest Group (CPSIG). I am also a member of the Association for Contextual Behavioural Science (ACBS), the International Positive Psychology Association (IPPA), the International Coaching Federation (ICF), and I'm an Accredited Coaching Psychologist with the International Society for Coaching Psychology (ISCP).
