Counselling/Therapy Services

Family systemic therapy is based on the belief that individuals cannot be understood in isolation from one another, but rather as a part of their own or original family (values, believes, role expectations, patterns of communication and interaction etc.). With this training in my practice I apply scientifically validated procedures that recognise that: 
  • conscious and unconscious processes influence behaviour, emotions and cognitive experience. 
  • experiences remote in time and place influence perceptions and actions in current relationships. 
  • people influence and are influenced by the systems they are part of. 
  • physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of experience are interrelated. 
Systemic therapy will provide a safe space for you to explore your relationships, thoughts and feelings.


Counselling/Therapy Approach

My primary type of therapy is Systemic Therapy, which includes narrative therapy, solution-focused therapy, emotion-focused therapy and cognitive behavioural techniques, as required. My background is in Clinical Psychology (recognised in NZ by NZQA) and Psychotherapy. I work with individuals (adults) and couples. One area of significant focus and passion in my work is single-event or prolonged trauma. I am ACC registered.
