Dr Bronwyn Thompson

Occupational Therapist
Christchurch, New Zealand.

Bronwyn Lennox Thompson initially trained as an occupational therapist, graduating from CIT in 1984. She later completed her MSc in Psychology in 1999 at Canterbury University, and in 2015 was awarded her PhD from the Department of Health Sciences at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. She has worked in pain management for most of her clinical career, with her primary focus on pain management at work. She has practiced in interdisciplinary pain management programmes, private practice, case management both for private organizations, and ACC, primary prevention and secondary prevention, and since 2002, teaching postgraduate papers in pain and pain management at Otago University. Her main interest areas include pain and anxiety, motivation for self-management, resilience and daily coping choices. The effect of her occupational therapy training has never fully left Bronwyn’s aims in pain management. Occupational therapy has always targeted function, or the ability to fulfill life roles despite limitations. In the same way, Bronwyn’s goals for pain management are to help people reduce the functional impact of pain and improve their engagement in living life to the full.
