The relationship between psychotherapist, counsellor or coach, and the client is key for successful outcomes so it is natural you’d want to know a bit about me.

Jacinda DoogueI have had a number of personal struggles in my own life and I have benefited from the support of skilled ‘healers’ (coach, psychotherapist, and body workers) who have helped me become happier and more at home in myself and in my relationships.  I know each of us have the resources, the life energy within us to flourish, even in times of difficulty, and my wish is to help you discover yours.

I have 20 years experience helping individuals and organisations develop their capability; working in consultant, contractor, practitioner, and leadership roles. I understand the challenges of workplaces and am skilled at working with individuals and groups. I heave been working in private practice for four years.

Qualification wise I have a BSC in psychology, a post-grad diploma in management, and I am certified in: Satir Systemic Transformational Therapy, NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming), and Wholebody Focusing Oriented Therapy. I am also trained in Motivational Interviewing, coaching, meditation and reiki.  I am currently working towards certification as a psychotherapist.

I am a professional member of the International Focusing Institute, a provisional member of NZ Association of Psychotherapists, and have weekly training supervision with a psychotherapist.
