Dr. Helen Rowse

Clinical Psychologist

Ph.D., PGDipClinPsyc (Victoria University of Wellington)


I grew up in the Wellington area and completed my clinical psychology training and doctorate at Victoria University. I have practiced as a Clinical Psychologist for the last 13 years, working with children, adolescents, adults and families across a range of services, both in New Zealand and overseas.


In my clinical practice, I work with a wide range of client concerns, including mood regulation, anxiety, pain management, adjustment difficulties, developmental concerns and behaviour management strategies. I work primarily from a Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) approach, incorporating techniques from other approaches, including Mindfulness and Narrative Therapy.


I have experience working in a Forensic setting, and have been based in Dublin, Ireland, where I worked in a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS). After a few years there, my husband and I had our first child and moved back to New Zealand to be closer to whānau. We've had another two children since then and, alongside my private practice, I have been working at Hutt Valley DHB CAMHS. I have also worked at Victoria University, teaching in the Clinical Psychology training programme.


If there are some areas of concern in your life that you’d like to address, contact me so we can discuss your goals and work out a plan together, focused on helping you achieve them.
