Tī Counselling and Supervision

Kia ora…


Life’s changes both expected and unexpected can be tricky to navigate. Sometimes we need a little more support to get us through the tough times.



I am an experienced senior counsellor with over 12 years’ proven experience in private practice, workplace, and contract counselling. In addition I have over 10 years’ experience working in people management and account management roles.



I will listen with empathy, respectfully and without judgement.

I provide a safe and confidential space for individuals, and couples to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences.

I have recently returned to private practice from almost three years of in-house workplace counselling.

When a tī is broken, it shoots up and grows a new head of leaves
