Counselling/Therapy Services

I offer short and long-term counselling. As an experienced and empathic counsellor I offer: 
  • An approach that is warm, respectful and non-judgemental 
  • A space for you to explore thoughts and feelings so that you can gain greater understanding and insight 
  • To work alongside you to find new ways of coping, including learning and developing new skills 
  • Support to identify strengths, goals and values 
  • Support to develop a life that is rich and meaningful to you

Counselling/Therapy Approach

My counselling approach is embedded in Client-Centered Practice, which holds the view that people are the experts in their own life. I am also able to integrate other modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Schema Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. How these modalities are used will depend on your unique experience.

Background and Experience

In addition to my private practice I work for a non-profit organisation that provides therapy to children, adolescents and adults engaging in harmful behaviours, and prior to this I worked for a Government counselling service specialising in addiction and mental health issues. I have experience working with people from diverse backgrounds, cultures, ages, sexual orientations and lifestyles.

Prior to my counselling training I have done mental health support and victim support work. 

I abide by the New Zealand Association of Counsellors Code of Ethics and have regular and ongoing supervision, both of which support me to work in a safe and ethical manner.
