Counselling/Therapy Services

Assessment for psychotherapy and counselling requires an initial conversation as to what you might need. Opening ourselves to inner processes takes courage which needs to be fully appreciated and valued. I will listen, provide fresh perspectives to current struggles and make a plan with you for deeper understanding and ways forward.

Online Sessions:
At this time many of us are connecting via video which provides a very satisfying way of meeting. Zoom is proving to be excellent in that we create secure meetings with easy access.


Personal and Professional Development Groups

Coming together in a group who are interested in wellbeing can be both challenging and illuminating. Understanding the dynamics of expressing ourselves where privacy and respect are held in high regard can give rise to new strengths and insights. Of course old behaviours occur which allows opportunities for greater awareness for change. Together the group assists each other to further aims and objectives that become clearer over time.

In 2021 the group will meet in Wellington CBD over eight weeks and will begin late March early April 2021 and the fee is $350 for the eight weeks. This is the first in a series of three groups throughout the year. For further information please contact me 027 639 7045.


Counselling/Therapy Approach

Developing greater self-awareness and insight requires a variety of therapeutic perspectives and techniques.

I have worked in analytic and creative methods with over 30 years experience resulting in a flexible approach to your individual needs.

Whether one is experiencing an immediate crisis or managing long term psychological or behavioral difficulties we work together in a committed way.
