COVID-19 update: our team are continuing to offer sessions via video link at this time. Please make contact if you would like to book an appointment with one of our therapists.
Welcome to The Psychology Hub. We are a small team of therapists based in Christchurch who are available for private appointments and contract work. We work together from our hub premises in Riccarton and provide a centralised referral pathway where you can either select the therapist you want or choose to see who is next available. We also very pleased to have a two excellent Clinical Dietitians working alongside us and available for private referrals.
Our shared values are at the core of our hub. We respect cultural and religious values and welcome family/whānau to be part of the therapy process while valuing and respecting individual privacy.
As clinicians the hub provides a supportive team environment with a range of expertise. We aim to provide easier access to psychological help by enabling you to refer to a group of therapists at once. The vision of our hub is to provide quality psychological services to those who cannot (or do not wish to) access mental health services. We know even if you meet criteria for such services that sometimes there are very long wait-times in the public system to see a psychologist or therapist. Given our extensive training and experience, we aim to get you back on the road to wellness quickly.
Our team see people with a wide range of difficulties, including anxiety disorders, depression, trauma, stress, gender identity issues, older person’s health and illness-related psychological concerns. Within our team there is also a wealth of knowledge and experience in treatment of eating issues and eating disorders in all age groups. This is something that can be hard to find in the private practice world. In combination with our dietitians, we provide an excellent option for those struggling with eating difficulties in the community (NB: unfortunately we do not see clients who are medically compromised).
We also see clients without any mental health conditions, as anyone can benefit from good therapy and we see priortising your own mental health as a great investment that builds life skills & resilience.
Whiria te tāngata – weave the people together
We also specialise in relational work, knowing how our relationships with others impact on our psychological well-being and vice versa. Our hub offers both couples therapy and family therapy options.
