Couples Therapy Auckland

Julian Metcalfe

Clinical Psychologist


I am a registered clinical psychologist who specialises in couple therapy. At both a personal level and a professional level I hold a deep appreciation of relationships.

The cornerstone of my couple work is Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). I value EFT for its research base, its self-evident logic and for the relative ease with which it helps couples feel safe and reconnected with each other.

In addition to my training in EFT I draw on 30 years experience working in mental health. I worked with emotionally disturbed youth in the late 80s, as a family therapist in the early 90s, registered as a psychologist in 1992 and since then have worked in a variety of roles including senior psychologist within the Auckland District Health Board. For the past 8 years I have focused almost exclusively on Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy.

I work out of rooms in Mt Eden Village.

The fee for a 60-minute session is $180, and for a 90-minute session is $250.

The 90-minute sessions give more time to explore sensitive concerns and works especially well for couples.
