Wayfinder Psychology


NOT AVAILABLE I’m currently not taking any new clients. I will update this site when I have availability



There can be times in our life when we may find it difficult to cope and might need more support. At Wayfinder Psychology we will work together to navigate life’s challenges in a warm, supportive and non-judgemental environment.


I have a special interest in:

  • trauma and recovery
  • post-traumatic stress disorder
  • depression
  • anxiety


Counselling/Therapy Services

I believe that the therapeutic relationship (the way we work together) is essential to a good outcome. I like to work with you to build a relationship based on trust, honesty and mutual respect. I take a positive approach based on your strengths and aim to work at a pace that feels right for you. My focus is to support you in improving well-being and resilience, and/or ease distress or resolve crises that may be getting in the way of you living a full and meaningful life.


I can provide psychological support for individuals, 18 years and older with a range of everyday difficulties, as well as common mild to moderate mental health problems:

  • Low mood, depression
  • Anxiety
  • Anger, frustration, irritability
  • Job difficulties
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Life transitions, change, adjustment
  • Confidence, self esteem
  • Emotional regulation and distress tolerance
  • Trauma / PTSD / abuse / critical incidents
  • Grief and loss
  • Sleep problems
  • Strengthen wellbeing and individual resilience


Counselling/Therapy Approach

I practice evidence-based therapies and primarily use Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-based and relaxation strategies, and solution-focused approaches. I will endeavour to incorporate any important aspects of yourself, such as spiritual or cultural connections, into the work we do together. I will tailor therapeutic needs and goals. I also believe that measuring and managing goals is an essential part of therapy to enable you to reach your desired outcome.


Background and Experience

Prior to moving into individual therapy in late 2017, I spent eight years working full-time as a psychologist in the New Zealand Defence Force. I worked with individuals and teams from a wide range of backgrounds. During that time, I provided a variety of psychological tools and services to support our military service men and women to perform at their best both locally and overseas. I continued to work part-time as a reserve psychologist until early 2019.
