Biography

Ko te Moana ki te Tonga o Haina tōku moana. I whanau mai au i te rohe o Hongipua. Ko Tāmaki Makaurau tōku kāinga hou. Ko Kaimātai Hinengaro tōku tūranga mahi. Ko Jennifer Wai Hei tōku ingoa. Kia ora, my name is Jennifer and I am a Clinical Psychologist. I provide psychological therapy for children, adolescents and adults online and in Auckland (Albany or Parnell). My therapy approach is most often Acceptance Commitment Therapy, family/systemic and attachment work, though I do draw flexibly from ideas and techniques across the field. The most important person to my approach is your experience of it, and so I invite your ongoing feedback of our sessions. I am interested in your strengths coming through from your individual, family and/or cultural history as part as understanding where you have come from as well as how your difficulties came to be. I also aim to keep the surrounding family/whānau, social/occupational and community/iwi environment in mind, especially for those from culturally diverse or marginalised backgrounds. My interests include: - Anxiety, OCD - Depression - Family relationships - Intergenerational trauma - Grief and loss - Loneliness - Adjustment issues - Perfectionism - Procrastination - Burnout (e.g. carer, work, parental) - Cultural or cross-cultural difficulties - Impact of social media, discrimination and/or stigma. I have a particular interest in the richness of cultures (such as in languages and metaphors) as a resource for supporting a person’s wellbeing. I have some (varying) levels of fluency in Cantonese and Mandarin. For children, teenagers or other dependents, the work I offer will almost always involve working with parents/families as a young person’s most important support system. After I have confirmed an appointment with you, I will send you an email invitation to gather your basic details and consent form through an online patient portal. I would ask that you complete this prior to our appointment. You can also alternatively contact me through my TalkingWorks profile about any questions you may have.
