Tree of Life Counselling

I am committed to providing a safe and confidential space where people can feel heard while working through pain and struggles. I am passionate about helping people be their best selves and find their own direction in life.

How I can help:

  • I provide a safe place to feel heard and validated, as you work through issues you may have
  • I provide a non-judgmental and confidential space to process hard things
  • I will help you to work through thoughts and feelings and gain a new perspective
  • I can offer strategies and tools to move forward, set goals and plan for the future
  • I can help couples and families with communication issues or conflict, and help to restore the relationships
  • I can support you on your journey through all kinds of loss and grief

About Me:

Those who know me would describe me a counsellor who is empathetic, and caring and as someone who has a passion for seeing people overcome obstacles and be their best selves.  In my practice, I  use several counselling modalities including CBT, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and EFT Couples Therapy but I always tailor my approach to suit my clients and their needs. I have experience working with many kinds of issues and challenges and I particularly love working with teens, adults, and couples.

I live in the lovely Bay of Plenty and enjoy keeping fit, reading, movies, and spending time with family and friends.
