Over the last 20 years I have extended my experience in Counselling and Supervision to understand the challenges that many people face during times in their life.

Areas of Special Interest

I offer both personal one-on-one, relationship, abuse, trauma and addiction counselling for clients, as well as Clinical Supervision. I am comfortable working with children, teenagers and adults, as well as one on one, couple and group settings.


Counselling/Therapy Services

When we are faced with traumatic situations, difficult decisions or a shift in personal circumstances, we may well find ourselves trying to ride out the storm of confusion, created by unresolved feelings, conflicting thoughts, and negative self-talk or doubt. Loosing faith in our ability to process these situations can result in feeling stuck, lost or even powerless to move towards any new goal.

Finding someone who can help process, unpack and resolve these internal conflicts quickly, is critical to being able to put the past behind you, and reinvigorate your desire to move forward towards new and achievable goals in your life.

My goal is always to help you take back control of your thoughts, feelings and self-talk, and with the correct insights and support your mind can indeed become your friend, and negative behaviours can change as a result.

My office is situated in Rotorua, and bookings can be requested either through email or text.  Where access to my office is difficult, I can offer Skype, Zoom or phone sessions.


Counselling/Therapy Approach

I can offer a counselling experience that will offer tools to support you through your personal needs.

Although trained in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Narrative and IDT (Interactive Drawing Therapy), I have focused more on REBT (Rational Emotive Belief Therapy) and Living Wisdom techniques due to the significant results that clients testify receiving.
