Dr Tom Flewett

Tom Flewett is a Wellington based psychiatrist with 40 years of clinical and teaching expertise. He has worked in public practice in New Zealand specialising in the treatment of Trauma, Addictions and Dissociative Disorders. He has worked in community mental health services, inpatient units and as an independent assessor for the New Zealand Medical Council. His interest in psychological treatments for mental illness has been a consistent theme throughout his career and has seen him train in a variety of psychotherapeutic modalities. Having seen the results of EMDR therapy after his own training, he immediately set out to advance his experience as much as possible, qualifying as a trainer in 2016. In his practice, he uses EMDR therapy widely, with patients presenting with a variety of conditions from addictions to trauma to schizophrenia. For Francine Shapiro to have discovered such a powerful therapy with applications in so many different areas is a gift which he would like to share with as many clinicians as possible.
