Vijay Mahantesh

Vijay is a Registered Psychotherapist who is experienced in both short- and long-term therapy and specialises in working with people affected by trauma, stress, anxiety, and depression. He is also interested in supporting people with anger management, relationship and work-related challenges, ‘meaning of life’ issues, sexual expression, culture- and sexuality-related difficulties, and disability-related issues.

Vijay has worked at the Burnett Centre in Auckland and is also an experienced behaviour therapist with extensive professional experience in behaviour analysis and crisis management.

Conflict within oneself and in our relationship is inevitable, however, we are also very resilient and have incredible adaptive capacities. Psychotherapy helps harness this resilience and adapt to challenges one encounters. In a safe and accepting psychotherapy setting, Vijay helps people move beyond current difficulties to heal painful experiences of the past and repair current conflicts.

Although psychodynamic psychotherapy forms the backbone of Vijay’s therapeutic approach, he finds it useful to draw on other proven skills from a vast body of current literature on counselling, neuropsychotherapy, and trauma therapy.

In addition to being a psychotherapist, Vijay is a mindfulness practitioner and certified yoga instructor and makes the most of any opportunity to align mind, body, and spirit.

When you begin psychotherapy with Vijay, you are likely to find him working alongside you to find an approach that best suits your needs.

Vijay sees clients in Auckland CBD and in Remuera.
