Dr Roger Mysliwiec trained in Germany as a medical doctor and then specialised in Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy. He worked in a psychosomatic hospital and private practice until emigrating to NZ in 1996 and working as a part time tutor and supervisor at the AUT psychotherapy programme between 1996 -1998 alongside his private practice.
He was the Clinical Director of the Regional Eating Disorders Service in Auckland from 1999 until 2014 and is considered one of New Zealand’s leading experts in the treatment of eating disorders. In 2015 he became Director of the New Zealand Eating Disorders Clinic (www.nzedc.co.nz), which is a private outpatient clinic providing specialist treatment for eating disorders.
Roger has over 20 years of experience working with adult individuals, couples and supervising health professionals. He has a collaborative and integrative approach to his practice and over recent years has developed a strong interest in the application of neurobiological findings to the theory and practice of psychotherapy. He is an accredited Clinical Neuropsychotherapist and supervisor of the International Association of Clinical Neuropsychotherapy (IACN).
Roger provides short and long term therapy for adult individuals and couples with anxiety, depression and other issues like grief and loss, life transitions, low self- esteem and relationship difficulties. He uses an integrative approach drawing on psychodynamic therapy as well as CBT and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). He is certified in Hakomi Psychotherapy (USA), a mindfulness based mind/body oriented psychotherapeutic approach that allows working with the unconscious with a high level of precision and refinement. He has also had training in Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), which has strong evidence in its effectiveness in working with couples with relationship difficulties.
Although medication usually does not provide the solution to psychological problems, it can at times be a helpful adjunct to assist psychotherapeutic treatment. Roger is licensed to prescribe and will discuss these options with the client when indicated.
A good part of Roger’s practice is dedicated to supervising psychotherapists and other health professionals in medical and mental health fields and mentoring of professionals in leadership positions.
