Real People: In the Psychotherapist's Chair airs on Tuesdays from 1pm – 4 pm.

Join registered psychotherapist and author Gerry Pyves as he invites New Zealanders from all walks of life into “The Psychotherapist’s Chair”. Here, he invites them to talk about their lives; what is it that gets them out of bed in the morning? Who has influenced them the most? How do they deal with those stressful or traumatic moments in life?

With so much current focus on so-called ‘difference’ and ‘division’, perhaps we have forgotten the most important thing of all – what unites us. Our shared humanity. Prepare to be entranced as Kiwis open up about their heritage, their lives and their understanding of their place in the universe.

Each session is followed by Gerry sharing a relevant piece of psychotherapy theory that has emerged from the session that can help us all to navigate our lives.
