CHARLOTTE BELL

Grad Dip Psychotherapy, Dip OT, Cert Bib Couns; Reg Psychotherapist #PB385
MNZCCA (Life Member), Approved by ACC

Charlotte works as a psychotherapist, facilitating the Life Unlimited counselling team.

She works with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, family issues, sexual and other abuse, eating disorders and addiction

Charlotte has a special interest in early childhood deficits and abuse (developmental trauma), and how they impact on adult life. Her work is client centred with an integrative gestalt and psychodynamic approach, incorporating a spiritual perspective. She also incorporates psychosomatic integrative psychotherapy. This approach weaves together somatic psychotherapy, developmental needs meeting strategy and lifespan integration.

Charlotte also integrates neurofeedback into her therapy. This approach involves utilising the brain’s capacity for neuroplasticity to train the brain to function in optimal ways. She uses findings from neuroscience which show how trauma in particular interferes with brain development to assist clients to overcome these difficulties.

Charlotte trained in Biblical Counselling with YWAM and in Psychotherapy at AUT. She has also completed the Spiritual Directors Formation Programme with Spiritual Growth Ministries and trained in Neurofeedback with the Neuroththerapy Institue in Melbourne, Australia.

He tailors his style and counselling method to what seems to fit for each individual, this can involve being goal focused or just getting alongside people for support. The approach will be determined following the initial assessment you have with him.
