Background and Experience
I have worked as a counsellor primarily at academic institutions (schools and universities). While most of my childhood was spent in Wellington, New Zealand I have also worked and lived in the UK and in Darwin, Australia. I have also worked or volunteered in a huge range of roles including environmental science, midwifery, hospice- death and dying, remote indigenous housing, elder care, veteran affairs, and women's empowerment through education.
I am especially passionate about helping people to heal and grow, and about healing our planet...one life at a time.
