Quoted in article in NEXT Magazine, written by Liz Nowosad. Here’s my quote. “The psychology PhD: Christchurch-based clinical psychology PhD Dr Alice Boyes says “When someone is feeling down, some of their thoughts are likely to be more negative than is warranted by reality,” she says. “You can turn overly negative thoughts into more balanced thoughts by uncovering evidence that the negative thought isn’t true. For example, if you think of yourself as a failure, what’s the evidence that you are NOT a failure?”

Quoted as Relationships Expert in Press Release for Telecom

Two quotes from me in a press release for Telecom about internet dating –



Women’s Health Australia asked me “How long is considered normal to grieve a dead pet?”

My answer
There’s no hard and fast rule. “It’s typical for people to experience their highest number of grief symptoms in the first six months, especially in the first one to two months after their pet has died,” says NZ-based social and clinical psychology PhD Dr Alice Boyes. “A recent study found a significant proportion of people had one or more grief symptoms remaining six months (35 per cent) and 12 months (22 per cent) after their pet died.” People who had a very strong bond with their pet, experience lots of stress, lack social support or feel anxiety about their human relationships have the hardest time coping with the loss. It’s worth visiting a counsellor if you’re not coping.
