registered Psychologist & Specialist Teacher whitianga
I believe in a multi-disciplinary approach. I use current best-practice psychology and documented intervention to assist young people and their families. Family involvement is absolutely critical to ensure the success of any person with academic, emotional, and/or behavioural difficulties.
Providing Support And Tools To Attain Your Goals & Needs
I use the best of what current psychology tells us about how our minds work and learn to support people in our local community. I bring psychology and the Coromandel Peninsula community together to provide a place for individuals (children, parents and adults) to develop the social, emotional, and behavioural tools they need to attain their goals and needs. I can assist with:
- Developmental Issues (ADHD etc.)
- Early Childhood Concerns
- Parenting Support
- Specific Learning Difficulties (dyslexia, dyspraxia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia)
- Mood Issues (Separation Anxiety, Selective Mutism, School Refusal)
- Organizational Difficulties
- Social Skills and Social Understanding Issues.
Holistic Approach To Psychological Services Whitianga
I work hand-in-hand with community based professionals (medical practitioners, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, counsellors etc.), educational professionals (school leadership, teachers, teacher aides, Early Childhood Education Centres) to provide psychological services on the Coromandel Peninsula.
Confidentiality and privacy is strictly upheld (subject to the Privacy Act 1993, Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act 2003 and Psychologists Code of Ethics), and I only communicate with other providers and organisations upon your consent.
I work locally and collaboratively, utilizing an innovative approach that combines psychological knowledge and compassion to maximize psychological growth in each individual I work with.
