NOT TAKING CLIENTS I am not taking new clients until further notice.ANNOUNCEMENT
Welcome! I am an experienced counsellor and supervisor and a full member of NZ Association of Counsellors since 2003. I provide counselling in the Buller & West-Coast districts. I provide supervision by Skype throughout Aotearoa and overseas.
My approach is to build a safe therapeutic relationship where people are supported to explore ways through the issues which are affecting them. I draw on a range of approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Client Centred, Holistic Models of Well-being, Neuro-science, Play-therapy, Psychodynamic, Solution Focused, and trauma informed practice.
My background and experience is in counselling, teaching, social work, and life, including:
I provide supervision by Skype throughout Aotearoa NZ and overseas. Supervisees are drawn to my background in counselling, social work, management and teaching in counselling and supervision programmes. I mostly supervise counsellors but welcome and enjoy working with practitioners from other disciplines.
I value forming collaborative relationships wherein supervisees feel safe to explore both their strengths and vulnerabilities. I believe in supervision being restorative, and involving learning and accountability. I see the main aim of supervision being that end-users are provided with safe and professional help. I work with a wide range of issues and draw on many theoretical approaches. I welcome a conversation with you to elaborate on these.
