Clinical psychologist • Wellington nz

Being human can be hard. We all struggle sometimes. I can help you understand your thoughts and feelings so you can do and be the things that matter to you the most.


New courses every term

Each term I offer two courses: Your Parenting ACT is specifically for parents. ACT for Everybody is for adults struggling with their thoughts and feelings, or with just being human.

About Giselle

Clinical Psychologist

Like you and everyone else, I’m human. Many wonderful and difficult experiences have shaped who I am. Through my training, I’ve learnt that there are many things I can do to make difficult times easier. Through my work, I get to share what I’ve learnt with others.

I grew up in Dunedin but have lived in Wellington for 30 years. I’ve been a clinical psychologist since 1999, after studying at Otago University and Victoria University of Wellington. I always wanted to be a psychologist even though I didn’t know exactly what psychologists did! Mostly I’ve worked in child and adolescent mental health services and private practice. I’ve also supervised psychologists and taught in Victoria University’s clinical psychology programme. I’m also a parent of two grown-up children.
