Presenter

Emma Green

Emma is a registered psychotherapist living and working in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa (Auckland, New Zealand). Born in Derbyshire in England, of English and Scottish descent, she came to Aotearoa in 2001. She teaches in the Psychotherapy and Counselling department at the Auckland University of Technology in the undergraduate and masters programmes and has a small private practice where she works with individuals and couples. Her research interests include culture, gender and sexuality, whiteness, transformational social change, feminist theory and psychotherapy. Her therapy practice is informed by Jungian, relational and intersubjective thought and by practice that holds space for wholeness. A feminist lens helps keep a larger socio-cultural context in focus in relation to the individual. In her research she has a special interest in qualitative methodological approaches that attend to different ways of knowing.
