Counselling Hypnosis Solutions

Working in ways that are just right for you to achieve the solutions for your goals that work best for you because you will tell me what they are. I will listen to make sure that we are on the same page every step of the way. You will always know what we are doing and where we are going.


People I enjoy meeting with for Counselling are:

  • Adults – individuals and couples
  • Teenagers – individually or with their support person or Whanau and with Families


Focus on finding the Solutions that you want.  Useful Solutions:

  • Teach you how to Relax – truly and deeply. Why? Because you are relaxed you are able to think more clearly and make better decisions. And very quickly you start to feel a whole lot better about yourself. Improving your Self Confidence and Self Esteem
  • Combining Counselling and Hypnosis to change the negative effects of Depression, Anxiety and support you to Getting it together again and Back on Track.
  • Work with you to restore and find peace love and happiness in your Relationships again
  • Support you with good counselling and  hypnosis to change  Addiction and Anger Problems.


Counselling Services

Time and Money. We live in times and know that when we are short of time and money we put off going to the dentist or the doctor because the budget won’t stretch that far. Many of us are struggling to find time for ourselves, because life has just become too busy ans sometimes even too hard.

And because of what I know about Time and Money that the time for spending a lot of money and time on Counselling and therapy is now really a thing of the past.

With that at the forefront of my mind, I have developed successful and respectful ways to get into our task right from our first session and in my experience in working this new way means that number of sessions that clients need to attend is significantly reduced, which means significant time and money savings for my clients. You will get helpful solutions – tools and strategies that you can use again and again to get yourself back on track.

I believe that when you come to consult with me that I have a duty of care to make sure that you leave with new and exciting beginnings of living your life in fulfilling and happy ways even when there are challenges.
