Successful therapy is based on the quality of the relationship between myself (the therapist) and you (the client). My approach is based on deep respect and non-judgemental acceptance for all people I work with.
Utilising an element of creativity within therapy enables you to speak through art making, and reflection, because sometimes spoken words don’t exist for your experience.
I work with children (from age 7), adolescents, and adults.
My therapy approach is holistic, and guided by Sir Mason Durie’s model of Te Whare Tapa Wha. It also draws upon a number of therapeutic frameworks such as Mindfulness, Person-centred, Positive Psychology, Strengths based, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
In our sessions we’ll explore what works for you and in this way, we’ll find the way forward together.
Telehealth is available.
For the last 20 years, I have worked as a counsellor, educator, facilitator, arts therapist and coach, in organisations (schools, health, and corporate), and private practice. In the last 8 years I have focussed in the area of grief, loss and meaning making for people who are living with a life limiting condition, and their family members, including bereavement.
