Dianne Hendey


One of my strengths is working with a very wide range of people, including those marginalised by society. I have worked with very young deaf children, as a Crisis Counsellor and with people in South Pacific and Asian countries.

I have been a Registered Psychologist since 1993, I am a Registered Psychotherapist and a trained Counsellor.

I can help adults with stress, anxiety, low self-esteem and depression.

I use the Conversational Model of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy because it restores a sense of personal identity and wellbeing. It is one of the best validated of all currently employed psychotherapies and a very strong evidence base supports its effectiveness, see Research. To get an idea of the experience of this therapy, go to Being in Therapy.


I have two supervisors – a Psychotherapist (weekly) and a Clinical Psychologist (fortnightly).
