Chris is a Wellingtonian with family roots in Hawke’s Bay. He has spent many years working in mental health, counselling and management.  He joined the staff of EIT in 2009.

Chris teaches Health and Wellbeing (Applied Practice) and Addiction Studies. He has supervised Post Grad (Health Science) students and recently developed and co-taught several Post Graduate micro-credential courses in Health Science. Chris’ interests, within this field, centre on Trauma-informed practice, Family-inclusive practice, Peer-led Recovery, Cognitive Behavioural approaches and strengths-based approaches to building resilience. He is a member of DAPAANZ, ANZACBT and ANZTCA.

In 1999 Chris previously completed studies in spirituality and applied theology at Oxford University (UK) and helps out from time to time with the Chaplaincy team on the Taradale campus.

He enjoys travel. His Oxford studies also afforded an opportunity to enjoy cycling around Europe. With one of his kids now at University, and the second about to head away from the Bay, Chris now has more time for his other passions including a-cappella singing and coordinating the local dapaanz (addiction practitioners’) Journal Club.
