Kia ora, I'm Miriam, a health psychologist with well over a decade of clinical experience. Stress, worry, low mood, health challenges, sleep problems and difficult relationships can all impact on how we live and enjoy our lives. I love using and sharing psychology strategies with my clients to help improve their wellbeing. I am based in the Waikato; however, I mostly see clients via Zoom. I find psychology via Zoom can be very successful. In preparing for an appointment, I recommend my clients have a confidential space to talk freely, minimising disruptions by closing other tabs on their computer and turning off the 'self-view' setting on Zoom (we wouldn't normally look at ourselves in the mirror during a psychology appointment, so we don't need this in videoconferencing either). This helps replicate the important successful elements of an in-person appointment; without the travel and associated extra time. I can't make my clients a cuppa when we're on Zoom, but they are welcome to BYO! I take a strength-based, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach and work with my clients on their goals. I teach my clients psychology tools to help them manage with work and life stressors and other problems such as worry, grief, anxiety and depression. I have extensive experience working with people with health conditions including heart problems, respiratory conditions, pain, fatigue, cancer and more recently long covid. I understand the environment and stressors faced by healthcare workers and also offer psychology sessions and supervision to health professionals. Please contact me if you would like more information. You can also find out more about me from my website: www.miriamwoodpsychology.com
