My name is Michael Carter. I am from Nelson and work as a Clinical Psychologist with our regional District Health Board part time. I also work in my private practice in the city.
I have worked as a Clinical Psychologist since 2006 and my main interest of work is anxiety and trauma focused therapy approaches. These include EMDR related therapy approaches which is recognized as the treatment choice for many affected by traumas in their lives.
My experiences have also included those bereaved by suicide, and those within diverse cultures from the regional refugee community. As I grew up spending time in the military on active service , as a registered nurse in many clinical settings and in recent years as a psychologist I have learnt to ask myself and those whom I see “what is life like for this person?”
In my private life I am a husband, father, grandfather to a loving and caring family system that helps me in my role with those I work with.
I am available to contact and to answer questions you may have of me when considering support and help from me regarding your needs at this time in your life.
