A memory without the emotional charge is called wisdom.
– Dr Joe Dispenza.
This is the first time in human history that we have had the entire world on a pause. If we are going to wake up, then I think we need a wake-up call. We are stepping into a place where there is uncertainty and we are moving from what we know about ourselves and our lives into the unknown!
– Dr Joe Dispenza
I provide careful and respectful help to achieve healing, change and growth. I offer you a safe, sincere and confidential therapy relationship in which you can grow and change. I support you to put positive changes into action by enabling you to learn from your experiences, access your strengths, and achieve your full potential.
Therapy offers a non-judgmental, safe, confidential space to discuss any troubling aspects of sex, gender identity, sexuality, and intimacy issues. Therapy provides a safe place for you to explore your feelings and thoughts. It provides you with support on your journey.
It provides you the personal space to:
Sex is a simple word for an extremely complex variety of desires. It cuts to the core of our desires, our passions, our emotions, our feeling, our wants and our dreams. It is when it goes wrong that it can be harmful and damaging in our relationships and our lives.
I offer sex therapy to individuals presenting with a wide range of emotional and sexual intimacy difficulties.
I have a particular interest in working with people who have sexuality concerns such as sex addiction, porn addiction, atypical sexual practices, loss of interest in sex (low desire), low sex drive, erectile problems, (OCSB) problems (including pornography addiction/compulsion), at risk sexual behaviours, diversity of sexual practice, sexual functioning and sexual identity or orientation, and gender dysphoria. My practice also includes working with individuals rebuilding their lives after recovering from sexual abuse, traumatic experiences, complex trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
My focus is on an authentic and conscious presence. I am practical, and I often use humour. I draw on a variety of counselling modalities to assist clients to engage consciously and authentically to themselves as well as to others.
Couples have such busy lives today that they often find it challenging to fit sex into their hectic schedules. For these couples it is perfectly normal to go through long periods without any lovemaking. They might not be in the mood, or they might be too tired.
It is, however, if you experience the lack of sexual desire for physical or emotional reasons that sex therapy could be helpful or beneficial for you.
Although it is not easy for many people to discuss the most intimate sex concerns or issues with a health professional, it has become more socially acceptable today to seek help or treatment for sexually related issues.
Nothing of a physical or sexual nature transpires in the sex therapy consultation. Sex therapy is exclusively talk therapy and does not involve any physical contact at all (this is different from the therapy offered by sexual surrogates who can involve physical contact as a recognized aspect of the therapy that they offer).
During Sex Therapy the emotional issues that may be underlying the sexual issues, are usually addressed. Physical symptoms can be dealt with through the application of particular behavioural techniques. In some cases I may recommend other treatment options. The behavioural techniques often comprises of physical exercises that clients do independently on their own between scheduled session – as ‘homework’ exercises – and not during the sex therapy session.
I am a NZAC Registered counsellor (MNZAC) with more than 20 years’ experience in counselling.

Yoga has shown to be an effective method for healing trauma held in the body, and can be a powerful complement to other forms of therapy. Trauma-informed Yoga is taught in a very specific manner, emphasizing control over one’s own experience.
