I will help you explore what is going on for you, so you can manage the challenges you're facing in a positive way, with resilience and self-compassion. For me, it’s important that you have a relaxed, accepting and welcoming space to explore and process thoughts and feelings, while being supported every step of the way. I understand that finding a counsellor can be a daunting process - this is why I am always happy to talk to you and answer any questions before you book your first session.

I offer a warm, safe and confidential space for you to be listened to. I work at your pace helping you to explore what you really want both from the counselling therapy and then concentrating more specifically, on areas of your life that you'd like to change or improve. If you have problems that keep going around and around in your head. If you are unhappy and can't identify why. If you are really struggling to cope with life then Counselling can offer an amazingly good emotional release. Offering you the comfort of feeling truly listened to and not judged.

If life is feeling overwhelming, if you're awake at night with anxiety, if you're feeling depressed or your relationships aren't as you'd like, counselling can help by providing an opportunity to explore what is going on for you. Perhaps past events or experiences are continuing to impact you today, perhaps your current situation is feeling difficult to cope with - we can look at your circumstances together to gain a clearer understanding of what is affecting you and why, with the aim of reducing negative symptoms and promoting an improved sense of wellbeing.

I’ve been through my own struggles with alcohol, and entered residential rehab in 2007 as a single mum of 3 young children. It was an immense challenge but I overcame many demons with the help of empathetic professionals. I decided to retrain from teacher to counsellor so that I could support others in addressing unhelpful thoughts and behaviours and live meaningful, contented lives. After 16 years in recovery, I understand that every journey is different but we all strive for the same thing: inner contentment and sustainable change.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Christchurch?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Christchurch specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
