Dr Georgina Parr

Clinical Psychologist

ABOUT ME

I am a Clinical Psychologist registered with the New Zealand Psychology Board. 

I have a warm and caring style. Therapy with me will focus on goals that are created together to ensure that therapy is meaningful to you. This may include tools and strategies to manage difficult feelings and thoughts and problematic behaviour.

Working together, I can help you gain better insight into yourself, strategies to manage difficulties you may be experiencing, and help you make the changes that you want in your life. 

To become a Clinical Psychologist I completed seven years of University level training. My research was in neuroscience/neuropsychology. My clinical training had a primary focus in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) .I have also completed additional training in:

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)

  • Mindfulness (this is a large component of DBT)

  • Compassion Focused Therapy

I have background in the public sector working with individuals who are experiencing single or multiple issues that are impacting on their ability to function at their best level. I also have experience running groups focused on skills training for individuals with a broad range of personal and interpersonal difficulties.

I have also run introduction to Clinical Psychology seminars for 6th Year medical students for the same DHB.
