Mindchanging People

Dr Christina Birkin

I'm passionate about helping people change their mind by learning skills to improve their life. I have worked with people facing all kinds of problems, including: anxiety, phobia, panic attacks, depression, post traumatic stress disorder, post concussion syndrome, binge eating, obsessive compulsive disorder, trichotillomania (compulsive hair pulling and skin picking), relationship problems, and low self esteem.

I am a registered clinical psychologist. I hold a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Auckland and I am a member of the New Zealand College of Clinical PsychologistsI have taught post gratuate psychology at Auckland University of Technology, and provided training for mental health workers at district health boards and private healthcare facilities around New Zealand.

After 10 years experience working in community mental health care at Auckland District Health Board I now work only in private practice.
