“In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.” (Carl Gustav Jung)

Welcome to “Dr Luis Gustavo Vechi´s” blog.

I am an English – Portuguese speaker Clinical Psychologist with a Doctorate degree in Psychology.

When it comes to my personal roots, I am a Brazilian national of Italian descent.

I am in private practice in Hamilton, New Zealand, and a full member of the New Zealand College of Clinical Psychologists.

Over 25 years as a Psychologist, I have been supporting people to manage and overcome their difficulties and to fulfill their potentials and vocation in life.

I am experienced in delivering psychological services for adults and couples. Among the clinical presentations I work with are the following ones: anxiety, depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, trauma, loss, grief & bereavement, interpersonal problems, adjustment to change, and family & couple difficulties.

I was originally trained in the Jungian psychodynamic model which has been my main practice reference. However, my approach integrates other psychology models, such as EMDR, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy and CBT.

Collaborative practice with clients, transparency and commitment are the my main work values.

I accept private referrals but I am also registered with ACC for sensitive claim, pain management and psychological services.

In my professional life, I worked for different public health institutions in New Zealand and in Brazil and, from 2002 until 2014, I was a a university lecturer in Psychology.

Since 2015, in addition to my private practice, I have been a consultant clinical psychologist and a supervisor at Puawai Forensic Service, Henry Bennett Service, Waikato Hospital, Hamilton.

In February 2022,  my book “Jungian Psychology applied to institutions (3rd ed.)” was published and a full list of my publications is available in this website.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Warm Regards,
