I have been practicing counselling for the last 12 years, having seen thousands of clients and witnessing great positive changes in their lives. My background is in Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy. My primary type of therapy is Family and Couple Systemic Therapy.
Family systemic therapy is based on the belief that individuals cannot be understood in isolation from one another, but rather as a part of their own or original family (values, believes, role expectations, patterns of communication and interaction etc.). With this training in my practice I apply scientifically validated procedures that recognise that:
Systemic therapy will provide a safe space for you to explore your relationships, thoughts and feelings.
My primary type of therapy is Systemic Therapy, which includes narrative therapy, solution-focused therapy, emotion-focused therapy and cognitive behavioural techniques, as required. My background is in Clinical Psychology (recognised in NZ by NZQA) and Psychotherapy. I work with individuals (adults) and couples. One area of significant focus and passion in my work is single-event or prolonged trauma. I am ACC registered.
