The relationship between a therapist and client is key for successful outcomes so it is natural you may want to know a bit about me.

Jacinda DoogueI have had personal struggles in my own life and I have benefited from the support of skilled therapists which led me to want to do this mahi along with a curiosity and passion for learning and understanding.  I believe each of us have the life energy within us to flourish, even in times of difficulty, and my wish is to help you tap into yours.

I have 25 years experience helping individuals and organisations develop their capability; working in consultant, practitioner, and leadership roles. I have been in private practice for six years, working in person in central Wellington and via video and phone.

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 and coaching and meditation.  I am currently working towards full certification as a psychotherapist.

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