Clinical Psychology Registrar
Amelia is a registered psychologist who is passionate about working with new parents. She provides a calm and supportive space for parents to express and work through the overwhelming aspects of being a parent as well as providing a space for parents to wonder about and enjoy their baby. She provides support for difficulties relating to adjustment to parenting, parental confidence and the parent-infant relationship.
Amelia has a particular interest in helping parents develop their capacity to reflect on their own experiences (how they were parented) as well as the experience of their infant, and actively involves infants in her therapy sessions where possible.
Amelia has worked in public health, private practice and inpatient settings, in both short term and longer term therapies. She also has experience working at Karitane with women during pregnancy, new mothers, and parents of both infants and toddlers. She believes in the importance of tailoring interventions to meet a particular client’s needs and works from an attachment based and psychodynamic framework while incorporating aspects of family systems therapy, mindfulness based CBT and DBT. Amelia is currently training to become a certified Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) therapist.
