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 at New Zealand District Health Boards for over a decade, 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. With my background in physical health settings, I understand the environment and stressors faced by healthcare workers. I 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
