My name is Richard Wheeler; I am a registered Clinical Psychologist working in Christchurch with over 33 year's experience. During this time I have helped hundreds of people come to terms with a range of personal issues ranging from relationships, stress, anxiety, trauma or depression.
I also offer sessions on life coaching and life transitions. Because of my many years experience as a long-term psychotherapist I am also involved in working collaboratively with a variety of professionals and NGOs as a Supervisor.
I guess my real passion is working with clients to effect major change. The problem is that such change, if it is to be broad based, often takes some time. Some of this work can be quite quickly achieved and involves a technique called "Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy" If you want to read about this powerful process which leans heavily on Attachment theory and Ego State therapy go to: www.DNMSInstitute.com
My long term work also leans very heavily on "Mindfulness" and Yungian approaches to psychotherapy. I also use techniques based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Please remember that you are always welcome to email me if you have questions, I am always happy to reply. Thinking about therapy issues and being open to change are two important aspects leading to personal growth.
Some suggested reading: "Getting the Love you want." Harville Hendrix; "Coming to Our Senses" Jon Kabat-Zinn; "Memories Dreams and Reflections" Carl Jung; "The Road Less Travelled" M. Scott-Peck; "The Feel the Fear Guide to Lasting love" Susan Jeffers.
Remember, Sometimes the moment of pain is the moment of growth, take the first step on the road to recovery and happiness and get in touch today, I look forward to hearing from you. Richard.
