Biography

None of us is perfect, and neither is life. That means it is completely normal to get stuck in an unhelpful pattern, to feel burdened by emotion, or to not know how to fix some problems. At Resilience Psychology, our Auckland Psychologists understand that seeking support to enhance your wellbeing can feel overwhelming. We want to break the stigma which creates a barrier for many people to reach out. Building our mental and emotional resilience should be seen as normal as going to the gym or accessing medical services. That is why we aim to provide a safe, non-judgemental space that allows you to discuss your difficulties at your own pace, whatever their size. We aim to work alongside you, whether short-term or long-term and equip you with skills for life. Dr Kirsten Wooff has experience with a large range of clients and their challenges. She is adept in managing all levels of psychological challenges, including more complex clinical presentations and circumstances, getting to understand the core issues and presenting straightforward information and strategies to ensure lasting change. Kirsten is committed to ensuring her clients care is holistic, including their family, school, or medical team when necessary. She is also is an experienced group facilitator and has run groups for adolescents, young adults, and adults. Kirsten believes strongly in being non-judgemental, offers kindness and is committed to her clients’ well-being, enjoying working alongside them to help them achieve positive change.
