Rebalancing Life Counselling

Hello 🙂

Welcome !
Hey is life frustrating you, are you feeling overwhelmed and not sure which way to turn? Are you worried things are not going as you had hoped or as planned?

When we are trying to navigate life’s challenges and difficulties we all need someone to help us figure things out. Sometimes it helps to have another person to shine a torch on the path so we can see which way we want to go.

People tell me they find it helpful to talk things through, to find clarity and a way forward which works for them.

Counselling is a confidential place, personalised for you, helping you to figure things out and to find your direction again.

Supporting people navigating difficulties such as:

  • Relationships whether that be with a partner, family member or work related issues.
  • Loneliness/Self esteem/Self confidence
  • Coping with change
  • Assertiveness
  • Stress
  • Chronic Pain conditions
  • Grief and loss including pets
  • Life Changes


  • 17 – 25 yr
  • Adults of all ages
  • Offering Interprofessional and Professional Supervision

Visit my website for more information and or the New Zealand Association of Counsellors where you will find detail about the different types of therapies and answers to other questions people have about counselling.

My Approach

I have an integrative style of therapy. This means I offer and or combine different approaches depending on the person I am meeting with, counselling is personalised to fit with you. Some of the different styles I integrate are Solution Focused, Compassion Focused, Cognitive Behavioural and Narrative Therapies alongside Person Centered therapy.

About Me

I have been counselling since 2013, working with many and varied issues that people face in their day to day living. I invite and welcome people to contact me to chat and get an idea of who I am, to ask any questions about what I do and how I work.
