Welcome - Black Dog Online Psychotherapy and Counselling, Timaru
"Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us." - David Richo
I offer online therapy or in-person sessions from my rooms in Timaru, from one-off sessions to short or long-term work including Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy.
Whether you have come here seeking help for yourself or others, because you are in despair and want to experience something different in your life, or because you want to know yourself better - welcome.
I'm Abby Driver, a registered psychotherapist who has completed clinical training in Auckland, Melbourne and London.
My clients come from diverse backgrounds and with a wide range of issues. I specialise in working with gender, sexuality, trauma and the ways in which our habitual patterns of relating and engaging in life can lead to problems such as depression, anxiety and addiction.
I have a strong personal belief in the resilience of the human spirit and its capacity for self-healing, and will travel alongside you to enable you to more fully experience your life, to overcome despair and to experience connection, vitality, and a sense of belonging in the world.
