I am a skilled & experienced counsellor who is passionate about seeing people change their lives. I relate easily to people of different cultures & diverse backgrounds. I values respect, honesty & integrity. I believe in listening to, valuing & honouring people & the path they walk in life.
Ever planted seeds & the next day expected them to have sprouted, thought the leaves should be flourishing & you’d have a fully grown plant?
Unrealistic! Yet we can expect our own lives to be changed instantly & think change happens ‘just like that’. Change takes time. It’s a process.
Whatever your goal(s) I work with you in a way that is tailored to you. I use a pluralistic approach to counselling which simply means I draw on a variety of different counselling approaches that respect your uniqueness and needs. We work together to achieve your goals.
I have worked with individuals, couples & groups for more than 10 years, both here in NZ & overseas. I spent 6 years working in Spain as a counsellor & mentor, with people who experienced emotional, relational or sexual brokenness. This experience enabled me to develop a deep compassion & understanding of the many struggles people face in their lives.
I worked for several years for an organisation specialising in relationship counselling & currently work for a workplace counselling provider as well as in private practise.
