Tzach provides psychotherapy and counselling to help people address current challenges and long-standing issues, as well as to explore their unique way of being with themselves and others.

Covid-19 : In-person sessions available at Alert Levels 1 & 2 only. Online sessions are available at all alert Levels.

Clients : Adolescents, adults & couples.

Services : Tzach has an extensive psycho-therapeutic experience over 15 years in both private practice and community settings in New Zealand & Australia. He takes a broad approach to psychotherapy and values working with the whole person: feelings, body, mind, and spirit. The psycho-therapeutic relationship is considered central to the therapy process, creating an opportunity for exploring both conscious and unconscious behaviors, emotional experience, beliefs and attitudes.

Tzach seeks to provide an atmosphere in the therapy which is emphatic and open and in which each client is able to feel that their subjective and personal experience is understood and valued. This type of therapy enables the client to deeply explore the repetitive painful interactions and experiences that may result from their limiting psychological patterns.

Approach : Tzach's therapeutic approach emphasizes on integration of different approaches to bring together what is most helpful for each client and on the relationship between the client and the therapist at the center of therapy. This includes theories that addresses personality and character, patterns of attachment, emotions, human development, embodiment, trauma theory, contemporary psychodynamic and relational analytic theory and practice. Tzach complies with the Code of Ethics, professional standards, ongoing training and the service delivery standards of the Professional Associations he belongs to.

Areas of Special Interest : Grief & Loss. Bereavement. Depression & Anxiety. Chronic Pain. Functional disorders (IBS, Auto immune, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Fibromyalgia). Sexuality & Gender. LGBTI+. Childhood trauma. Adult trauma. Complex PTSD. Relationships. Couples therapy & Life transitions.
