Key Note Statement : I was educated in Finland and immigrated to New Zealand in 1990 and have been working in full time private practice in Auckland since 1993. I have been a registered consultant psychiatrist since 1970 and psychoanalyst from 1975.

Specialisms : My main areas of interests are in helping people through crisis times in their life and facilitating their adaptation to emerging new life situations. When I say crisis times, I mean, for example:

  • Times of relationship break-up
  • Changes in work situation
  • Health crisis, for example, illness
  • Retirement crisis, menopause, empty nest
  • Death of a loved one
  • Immigration or moving to a new place and job
  • Emerging awareness of a lifelong sorrow or unhappiness
  • Emerging awareness of one’s self-defeating and self-destructive tendencies
  • Seeing that much of one’s life been wasted in unnecessary anxiety and busyness
  • Unsuccessful or unfinished previous psychotherapies

I am very devoted to helping people who feel that they were never really able to grow to their full potential or achieve their full capacity. I am also keen to work with professionals and artists and with people with some kind of spiritual awareness. I also like to work with couples and work teams. I provide supervision and second opinions for my colleagues.

Fees : My fees are negotiated individually, starting from $160 for a 50-minute session.

Enquiries Welcome : The best way of contacting me is by e-mail olli@cure.org.nz or texting or phoning me at 021 66 85 44.
