Online Applied Psychologist, Social Worker and Holistic Health Coach

My name is Linda and I have been practicing as a Social Worker/Applied Psychologist for 6 years. 

I see children, youth, adults and parents with a wide range of (complex) social issues and use strength-based, therapeutic and practical approaches. 

With children, I incorporate activities like showing video clips, filling out worksheets and playing games as I find this is a very helpful way to make a child comfortable, keep a child engaged and help a child work through issues. 

I am an open, honest, easy-going, and non-judgemental person who understands what is like to struggle with your own mental health. I have overcome different eating disorders and underlying low self-esteem, anxiety and depression. 

It brings me joy to support people to be the best version of themselves. I believe we are all capable of growing and developing at any stage of life and it can be tremendously beneficial to talk with a trained professional when navigating (significant) life challenges. And that’s what I’m here for. 

I will empower you (and your family) to take charge of your health and provide ongoing support and guidance as you set goals and make sustainable changes that improve your health and happiness.

I’m there for you every step of the way!

If you feel you would benefit from talking to a trusted person who will allow you to explore how to move forward in a helpful way, it would be my pleasure to offer you a free discovery call get to know you and your goals and decide on the appropriate next steps for your needs.

Would you like to know more or make an appointment, feel free to contact me.

Linda

Online therapy

50-min online coaching sessions from the comfort of your home. It's for anyone who has limited access to support, time constraints or other obstacles. Online coaching is also very effective for those who are anxious about seeing a professional, see below a snippet from a parent.

 

“Online coaching has been a lifesaver. We started with camera off, lying on the bed together with me answering questions at first, and then my daughter gradually building up trust to participate. Each session it was decided if the camera was on or off - useful for the days that my daughter just wanted to lie down.” 

Qualifications and registrations

I hold an Applied Psychology degree and I have spent the majority of my career on supporting children, youth and their families in the area of emotional health and well-being. 

In 2020/2021, I studied at The Institute for Integrative Nutrition to become a Certified Health Coach and have been coaching more adults too. 
 

Fees

You can choose between a package of 4, 8 or 12 sessions depending on where you are at. 

In our free discovery call, we’ll discuss which package option is the best fit for you. All prices are in New Zealand dollars and include VAT. 
For children/youth between the age of 5 and 24, I can access funding for the first 2-4 sessions in some cases.

If I am working with a child, sometimes it becomes necessary to work with the family around the child and in that case, I can do family therapy or offer separate sessions to parents/caregivers. 

Package 1: 
4 coaching sessions (of 50 min) via Zoom, either weekly or fortnightly - $115 per session

Package 2: 
8 coaching sessions (of 50 min) via Zoom, either weekly or fortnightly - $100 per session

Package 3: 
12 coaching sessions (of 50 min) via Zoom, either weekly or fortnightly - $90 per session

All packages include ongoing email/text support between sessions for any questions or concerns that come up in between our sessions.

I can absolutely recommend Linda

My 10-year-old son and I have been working with Linda since June 2021 and I have nothing but praise for her experience, approach and commitment to supporting his understanding of himself and his personal growth.

We had quite recently arrived in NZ after almost 12 months in lockdown in the UK and the pressures of that coupled with international relocation, loss of friends and trying to fit into a new school had all become too much for my son. We were referred to Linda through the school's Mana Ake programme.

His weekly sessions with Linda have become fundamental to his personal confidence and have helped him find creative and effective ways to achieve and sustain calm and work through the issues that challenge him. In working with Linda, he has begun to understand and like himself better, realising that he may be different to other kids and deal with things differently but that doesn't make his way wrong.

Linda's patience, acceptance and close relationship with my son has been the foundation of this for him and her hints, tips and toolkit of activities has also helped me to help him and to support and sustain the good work they do together.

I can absolutely recommend Linda and her work to support tamariki and their whānau to meet the many challenges we all face now properly equipped, prepared and supported.
