Are you worried about your child’s behaviour, well-being or learning? Do you feel uncertain about how best to approach an issue with your child? Do you find yourself doing or saying things as a parent, you always said you wouldn’t? This is perfectly normal; but also painful. Our children can trigger emotions, memories, thoughts and behaviours in us that we never anticipated. As parents we can end up feeling lost, confused and alone with the challenges, unable to see a way forward.

Being flexible in the way that we think and being open to change is essential for developing and strengthening positive psychological wellbeing. Being psychologically fit is the foundation of a vital life. We all have ingrained habits, beliefs, rules, behaviours and ways of thinking about the world. Some of these provide us the tools to navigate our lives in a positive and flexible way and some can be severely restrictive, impacting us all in unique ways, from complex mental health issues to performance related difficulties in our work and relationships.

I offer both short-term counselling focusing on specific issues as well as longer-term psychotherapy. If you are frustrated with repeating old patterns of behaving and feeling and are searching for increased wellbeing, self-acceptance and resilience, psychotherapy can make a big difference to your life. Sharing your difficulties with a caring and effective listener can help you live more adventurously and feel more at ease in your own skin. I prefer to work collaboratively towards useful and achievable goals that you choose.

I facilitate confidential conversations that open up space for an exploration of problems associated with traumas (micro or macro) and focus on what it means to you to reconnect back to self/identity by using developmental models of therapeutic change. The knowledge that I have developed over the past 15+ years, has led to an awareness that when core beliefs/values are compromised, maladaptive defence emotional/behavioural patterns are created as a pattern of survival. My practice is in understand this conflict to improve relationships, by noticing what gets in the way of you living a life of value, purpose and vitality.

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 Auckland?
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 Auckland 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.
