Auckland Registered Psychologist Alexandra Winlove, specialist Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

Alexandra is a registered psychologist. She completed her New Zealand Psychologists Board Supervision to Practice in 2005, specializing in child and adolescent mental health and parenting behaviour for the past ten years. She has experience in assessment, motivational interviewing, parent-child interventions, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Trauma Focussed Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Sandplay, and Mindfulness. Alex is a mother of twins.

The work Alex has carried out with children and their parents covers a wide range of difficulties. These include: depression; anxiety; substance dependency, and complex post-traumatic stress disorder. As well, she has focused on issues specific to children such as sleeping, eating and toileting difficulties, attachment-related and behavioural difficulties.

Alex’s special interest lies in promoting positive outcomes for young children using relationship-based treatment that facilitates secure attachment and enhances parents’ ability to manage their own, as well as their children’s emotions and behaviour.

Consistent with her clinical work, Alex is sensitive to the challenges faced by parents experiencing emotional distress. Her experience has demonstrated to her how crucial parent wellbeing is to positive emotional and developmental outcomes for children. She believes psychologists should offer the best that psychological research has to offer in the way of tested intervention to parents and their children. Alex is associated with the Parent-Infant Research Institute (Melbourne Australia).
