Counselling Services

As your counsellor I will gently explore with you the issues which have prompted you to get in touch with me. You may be feeling disconnected in your relationships or struggling to make sense in a rapidly changing world. Whatever it may be, it is my job to listen to you closely, and to hear what you are really saying. I will walk beside you as you begin to navigate your way through the unchartered territory of your inner world. As we go along, I will support you to gain insight and clarity of what is going on for you, empowering you to discover your own solutions, resources and strengths.

 

Counselling Approach

My counselling style is warm, affirming and collaborative and I offer a calm and relaxed environment to work in.

No two people are alike. To suit the individual needs of each client, I use an eclectic mix of therapeutic modalities and mindfulness-based approaches.

Underpinning my work is an attitude of acceptance, compassion and respect towards all people and the issues they bring to me.

 

About Me

Born and raised in Switzerland, I have lived in Aotearoa for over 25 years. After working as a retail book seller for many years, I was ready to embrace a career change. Since 2006 I offered counselling in various settings such as hospices, high schools as well as in private practice. Intermittently I have also worked as volunteers’ coordinator and trainer, operations manager and spiritual care coordinator. I currently work part time for a hospice and in private practice.
