Relaxed Therapists



Dryden Badenoch, CPsychol
Consultant Clinical Psychologist


After twenty years of working for NHS Scotland in Learning Disability, Adult Mental Health, Primary Care, Physical Disability and Stroke Rehabilitation, I tired of miserable weather and moved to NZ in 2009, since when I’ve experienced snowstorms, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

I’m Registered with the NZ Psychologists Board, I’m a Chartered Member of the British Psychological Society and I’m the author of the therapy tips & techniques site, The Relaxed Therapist.


My specialisms are:

  • Psychological treatment in the context of physical disability & neurological impairment
  • Solution-oriented approaches to psychological interventions
  • Psychological approaches to rehabilitation in vascular medicine
  • Systemic interventions, staff education & consultancy
