I am a Provisional Psychologist with a strong interest in health psychology, specifically the connection between the mind, the gut, and the body.
I am originally from New Zealand, and have worked extensively in a holistic based practice, assisting client’s suffering from autoimmune disorders, chronic fatigue, sleep disruptions, negative body image, and weight management.
During that time I developed a strong interest in psychoneuroimmunology. Alternatively conceptualised as the way mental health can influence the body’s natural immune response in a manner that is erroneous to health.
I predominantly use evidence based cognitive behavioural techniques such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, in order to enable clients of all ages to gain better tools in approaching psychological issues, lifestyle stressors and chronic health diagnoses.
