Psychological services

Specialising in healing through providing individually tailored assessment and therapy.


Pacific Psychology’s founding philosophy is to create supportive environments in which people flourish and grow. It is of utmost importance to the team at Pacific Psychology that our clients feel understood, respected, validated and supported during therapy. It can be a brave and difficult decision to approach a therapist and we very much respect this. During therapy, we seek to provide you over time with skills and empowerment to become your own ‘therapist’.

Auckland and Online

I am a Clinical Psychologist and Certified IFS therapist. My intention as a psychologist is to support people to understand the impacts of various past events happened in their lives and create some space for a more relaxed and integrated state of mind.

I use Internal Family System model as a main modality for my therapy. I also use EMDR when it appears helpful at times.

I provide individual therapies and supervisions (individual and group), and I am currently in the process to be a Certified Supervisor from IFS institute. I have worked as a programme assistant for IFS trainings of Level One and Two in Australia and Asian regions, for the last few years.

I migrated from Korea in 2000, as an adult. I had my psychology training in NZ, worked in community mental health settings for about ten years, and currently in the full-time private practice on the North Shore, Auckland. My previous background before the psychology includes having my first degree in Fine Art, and then I found a passion in writing so worked as a journalist and freelancer in Korea for a while.

Some of the major therapy trainings and practitioners that my current practice has been influenced by are:

IFS Level one and two with Einat Bronstein, Somatic IFS for clinicians with Susan McConnell, IFIO basic training with Toni Herbine Blank. Clinical application of Polyvagal theory level 1 with Deb Dana, EMDR Master’s intensive training with Roger Solomon, Drawing into Self/IFS using drawing with Ruth Calver, IFS for Preverbal trauma with Colleen West.

**Sessions are provided via zoom or in-person.



뉴질랜드에서 클리니컬 사이컬러지스트(임상심리학박사)로, 또 IFS 공식 인증 치료사로 일하고 있는 전현옥 입니다.

내담자분들이 자신 스스로와의 관계와 다른 사람과의 관계, 또 각자의 전문분야에서 긍정적이고 의미있는 변화를 창출하는데 걸림돌이 되는 심리적 요소를 이해하고 잘 포용해서 갈 수 있도록 돕는 작업을 통해 큰 보람을 느끼고 있습니다.

제가 주로 사용하는 치료기법은 내면가족시스템 치료 (Internal Family System Therapy) 입니다. EMDR도 적절하다고 느껴지면 사용 되어집니다.

현재 뉴질랜드 오클랜드에서 개인 상담센터를 운영하고 있습니다. 개인센터를 운영하기 전에 뉴질랜드, 오클랜드 센트럴과 와이테마타 국립 정신건강병원 외래센터에서 11년간 심리학 박사로 근무하면서 트라우마 치료접근방법에 대해 관심을 가지고 다양한 훈련을 적극적으로 받아왔습니다. 현재는 호주/뉴질랜드지역에서 IFS 트레이닝에 참가하는 치료사들의 훈련을 돕는 어시스턴트로 정기적으로 참여하고 있고, 뉴질랜드에서 그룹슈퍼비젼을 동료와 공동으로 진행하고 있습니다. 국제적 트라우마 트레이너들로부터, 동료 치료사들로부터, 내담자들로부터 배운 내용을 다시 제 상담에 이용하고 있으며, 여러분들에게 도움이 되길 바랍니다.

일반 개인 상담과 치료사들의 개인 혹은 그룹 슈퍼비젼을 제공하고 있습니다. 온라인이 주된 매체입니다. 대면은 일주일에 1-2회, 오클랜드 노스쇼어에서 진행됩니다.
