About Dr Brian Broom

Dr Brian Broom is both a medical doctor (a Consultant Physician in Clinical Immunology) and a psychotherapist, and his training is aimed at professionals who work with the mind and/or with the body. Brian Broom is widely recognised for his whole person approach to illness and disease. He stresses a co-emergence model for understanding how people’s stories, life experiences, traumas, and meanings are crucial to the development of many illnesses and diseases, especially those that are chronic.

He conducts workshops and lectures nationally and internationally, and has written three books for clinicians. He established the Post- Graduate MindBody Healthcare Diploma and Masters programme in the Department of Psychotherapy at AUT University, Auckland, where he is Adjunct Professor. He is currently a Consultant Physician in Clinical Immunology (Auckland City Hospital, New Zealand) and a New Zealand registered psychotherapist.

Whilst his psychotherapy background is eclectic, his therapeutic focus is strongly interpersonal. Clinicians of all kinds, frustrated with the dualistic, fragmented, depersonalising nature of modern health care have benefited from his training.
