Rodger Pool is a fully registered psychologist in private practice offering in-depth counselling services in Auckland. He offers both relationship counselling and individual counselling. In relationship counselling, he is passionate about nurturing feelings of safety and trust between partners, enabling deeper and more loving connections. He helps individuals with a wide range of concerns, including depression and anxiety. Rodger tailors your treatment using evidence-based therapies, and helps you to access your inner strengths and move toward a life full of promise and vibrancy.
Rodger says it is a privilege to work with couples who are working to build more loving and lasting relationships, and who are committed freeing themselves from old patterns that have undermined their happiness and intimacy. With advanced training in relationship counselling, he uses empirically validated approaches that nurture feelings of safety and trust between partners, enabling deeper and more fulfilling connections.
His other passion is working together with individuals wanting to free themselves from the debilitating effects of anxiety and depression. These affect each person differently and there are different forms of each. Careful assessment is important to delineate healthy responses of sadness or fear in the face of challenging situations from unhelpful patterns or even underlying traumas. Rodger tailors your treatment to work best with your particular situation and individual preferences, while offering the caring support and guidance to support you in achieving your goals.
Rodger's academic research has focussed on the intersection between Buddhist mindfulness methodologies and modern Western psychology, which offers his clients a dynamic approach to addressing their struggles. As an experienced meditation instructor, he brings a deep understanding of mindfulness and compassion to working with clients who prefer mindfulness approaches. Through this varied and highly experienced background, Rodger's clients can work through their issues in a safe, accepting environment. His philosophy is to provide a guiding hand and a listening ear and to allow the client to rediscover the natural wisdom and strength we are all born with.
Rodger also works with a wide range of other challenges, including post-traumatic stress and personality challenges. To learn more about his services, visit the Counselling Psychologist website today!
