Who I am

My name is Nathan. I practice as a Senior Clinical Psychologist in the Hutt Valley, previously working in the public sector and now in private practice. I grew up in Wellington, and after a stint in Auckland and travelling overseas, came back to raise a family. I am married with two kids, play cricket with a passion, and feel honoured and privileged to be helping others in my work.

Where I work

I offer private sessions at Winslow House in Lower Hutt on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I work with individuals, through organisations, and am registered with ACC to provide psychology support through Sensitive Claims and other ACC contracts.
