7 September Meeting - Guest Speaker - Margaretanne Roger

  • After working for 10 years as a receptionist for a trucking company Margaretanne Roger decided she wanted to do more with her life. After successfully completing one paper outside work time, she enrolled for a Psychology degree at the University of Auckland. After completing her degree she got a got a job as a probation officer before becoming a clinical psychologist specialising in helping people with brain injuries.

  • Margaretanne then worked in Britain for four years. On her return to New Zealand she was staying with her sister in Kaitaia when she heard of a job with the Ministry of Education managing its psychological services for the Far North, based in Kaikohe. She got the job. But after two years she decided to go out on her own and become a psychologist in private practice. That was in 2008 and she is still in that role.

  • Margaretanne explained that most of her clients come via referrals from government agencies such as ACC and Corrections. She has a few private clients. However, Northland has few people who can afford to pay for psychological services.

  • For a period Margaretanne had her own consulting rooms. But she found that most of her clients live outside Kaikohe, so the rooms were not viable. She now services an area from Te Hapua in the north to Waipu in the south, including frequent travel to Kaitaia and Whangarei.

  • Margaretanne says there are a handful of other private-practice psychologists in Northland and there is plenty of work. She explained that while psychiatrists have full medical training, psychologists do not.

  • Ngaire Powdrill thanked Margaretanne for her most interesting presentation.
