Dr Helen Austin

MBChB (Otago) MRNZCGP FRANZCP Cert Forensic Psych Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist

MindFix New Zealand Limited is a service developed by Dr Helen Austin. She is a medical practitioner with over twenty-five years experience. She worked as a General Practitioner for ten years before spending another five years retraining in psychiatry and for the last ten years has worked in Forensic Psychiatry.

Over her ten years of practice in this area, she has developed an interest in the effects of exposure to traumatic material in the occupational setting and the associated concepts of burnout and compassion fatigue. She has conducted research in this area and has spoken at conferences and courses on this topic. In her time in Forensic Psychiatry, she has learnt the benefits of engaging in professional supervision and regularly attends her own supervision.

As a Forensic Psychiatrist, she is well aware of the issue of confidentiality and the expectations that arise as part of being a professional. She is also aware of the cumulative effects of regular exposure to traumatic material and to other peoples suffering and distress. She is now offering one to one professional supervision and support to professionals in a confidential setting with flexible appointment times. A free initial consultation is offered to discuss the benefits that regular supervision and support may provide.

A free no obligation initial consultation is available as an introduction to MindFix to determine whether this service may be of benefit to you. Small group workshops and seminars can also be provided on request. ENQUIRE
