Isabella Van Hoye 

Registered Psychotherapist PBANZ, MNZAP

Advanced Clinical Practice

EFT Certified Therapist (ICEEFT)


A trained and qualified psychotherapist since 1994 I am passionate about helping people realize their potential to live a more fulfilling life, by working together to bring clarity, understanding and integration to the issues they may be struggling with.

I was born and grew up in New Zealand and later travelled overseas where I trained and qualified in Body Psychotherapy in France. Since my return to New Zealand I have continued to broaden and further my professional development in a variety of approaches; psychodynamic psychotherapy, somatic trauma therapy, infant observation, sand play therapy so as to enhance my work with a wide range of clients and their needs. I have been trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples and am a Certified EFT Therapist.

I work with individual clients and couples of varied backgrounds and experiences in private practice. My skills included group facilitation of body psychotherapy training programs in Paris and here in New Zealand I ran women’s groups for refugee women. I have also co-facilitated “Emerging Mothers”, a support group for new mothers.

Also experienced in working with trauma clients of many cultures and ethnicities, I am bilingual in English and French and practice therapy in both these languages.

I practice according to the Code of Ethics of the New Zealand Association of Psychotherapists and attend regular professional supervision and professional development.
