Kia ora and welcome. My name is Dr Alexander Stevens II (PhD). I am a qualified health professional with a clinical background (twenty years) in Sexual / Physical Violence Recovery, Addictions, Mental Health, Trauma, and Suicide Prevention. I am also a healer using traditional Māori techniques called Rongoa. I have other roles in the community, including being a qualified adult teacher, Kaupapa Māori Researcher, and registered clinical practitioner/cultural supervisor with DAPAANZ.
As a registered ACC clinician and healer, I have worked for over twenty years in the health and social service fields advocating for individuals, and training whānau, support people, and communities across Aotearoa how to support people affected by sexual violence.
Here is a radio interview about my work across Aotearoa/New Zealand.
Muriwhenua / Ngāpuhi
Cultural / Tikanga Advisor / Facilitator
Ko Irie tōku ingoa, I descend from the six tribes of Muriwhenua, in the far north of Aotearoa, extending from the Maungataniwha Range up to Cape Rēinga.
At StandingTallNZ I manaaki the tikanga, kaupapa and wairua to ensure our team and people who access our services are supported and feel safe.
Here is a radio interview about me and what I am passionate about decreasing anxiety and increasing wellness.

Tēnā tātou, ko Bronson, Ngā waka o Te Arawa, Tainui and Ngatokimatawhaorua tēnei. I am the main point of contact for all media inquiries.
My role at StandingTallNZ.org is to raise our profile by engaging with media. So many of our bros have been destroyed by childhood/historical sexual violence and they need to know we're here to help. My experience includes working in and with New Zealand media outlets and using the media to be a voice for the voiceless.
Mālō le soifua. I'm Nigel. I am a Social Worker (SWRB) with a background in working with young people, abuse and trauma. I am studying for a Master's in Violence and Trauma Studies from AUT.
Working to support people to get ahead and empower people is what I love to do. My role at StandingTallNZ is to work across Pacific communities and build relationships that enable Pacific men to get support from historical sexual abuse. I also work with clients living with trauma, addictions and mental health.
