Kairos (καιρός) is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment when an opening appears and insight or change can occur.


Counselling and psychotherapy open space for awareness and reflection. They provide opportunities for enquiry and the exploration of all areas of life, to assist understanding, integration and the development of new responses in familiar and/or challenging situations.

Selina works to clarify the areas you want to focus on, and to create life-giving plans. She works in the here-and-now, and if appropriate, may work with you to investigate the thoughts, beliefs and values that are influencing your ability to live the life you want. Sometimes this may involve looking at current experiences, or future goals, or may focus on historical moments and events. Selina is aware that the social and cultural landscapes we are living in has a bearing on our life experiences and that this may also be an area for exploration.

Both short-term and longer-term sessions are available. The first few sessions provide an opportunity to see what the next steps might be and whether a referral elsewhere might be useful.


Relationships can be intensely rewarding and also intensely painful. Counselling can provide a stable and non-biased place to explore many different relational areas, such as:
 communication and boundaries
 transitions and separation
 new relationships
 parenting challenges
 differences of values, culture, spiritual understanding
 sexual difficulties
 mental health concerns
 supporting others through challenges

Parenting can be a challenge at the best of times. When we are stressed or upset, it can be even harder to parent the way we want. Guilt and shame can build up about how we are feeling and behaving toward our children.

Selina provides a confidential and supportive place for parents to look at what’s happening and to develop skills to understand and manage stress and anger. Learning different ways of responding to the frustrations of day-to-day parenting can give choice and a positive way forward.

Parents and Anger counselling cambrige waikato


In these workshops we will focus on developing, sustaining, or expanding our creativity amidst life’s challenges and complexities. Group work and psychodrama enable the development of new responses to familiar situations, or adequate responses to new situations. This applies to our relationship with ourselves, with partners, family members, friends, work colleagues, authority figures and society at large.

Supervision offers an opportunity to reflect on the systems operating in both your client(s), and your responses to them. Supervision increases effectiveness and confidence, and is part of the ongoing development of a practitioner. Supervision also provides a place to reflect on ethical dilemmas.

Selina has provided supervision since 2010. She draws on her own experience of supervision, as well as her experience of supervising other counsellors’ work.
