Biography

Kia ora, I'm Miriam. I'm a New Zealand registered psychologist with specialised training in health psychology. I love psychology and teaching people to use psychology tools to improve their health and wellbeing. I am based in the Waikato. I have worked as a psychologist in NZ hospitals and medical teams, and recently began working in private practice. I enjoy using psychology to help people cope with work and life stressors and other problems such as worry, grief, anxiety and depression. I have special interests in working with people with health conditions including heart problems, respiratory conditions, pain, fatigue, cancer and more recently long covid. I understand the environment and stressors faced by healthcare workers and also offer psychology sessions and supervision to health professionals. Please contact me if you would like more information or would like to schedule an appointment. I usually have appointments available during school hours. You can also find out more about me from my website: www.miriamwoodpsychology.com
