As a family therapist , teen therapist and child therapist, adult and relationship therapist, I have worked with almost every imaginable issue over my 27 years of practice.
My approach is optimistic, creative and fun! Whilst problems can be serious and painful, our conversations will be uplifting. ‘Problem stories’ can become so overwhelming that it can be almost impossible to separate ourselves from them. This is where narrative therapy comes in. Together, we will disentangle problems stories and you will step into new, life-giving stories.

I can help you with: anxiety, depression, navigating life's changes, relationship issues, communication styles, sex therapy, migrant related issues, attachment styles, feelings of isolation, fears, self-love, family dynamics, apathy, general well-being, and amongst other topics.
UNIQUE I don’t believe in “one solution fits all”. So I do an initial assessment and get to know you and your therapy goals. I train in different methods and techniques and tailor the session to your needs. HOLISTIC My approach to well-being and happiness is holistic. I look at the different elements in your life and your environment to better understand where you are at right now and what you need. I work on being present, mindful, and accepting. EMPOWERING I believe in giving people tools to apply in their lives outside of the therapy room. I like to give people the autonomy to make choices and perfect their reflective skills.

Talofa lava, Kia Ora and hello! My name is Tillie, and I believe in being authentic and genuine in all the conversations I have.

Together we would explore your history, your family of origin, your way of being in relationship (your attachment style) and also any trauma (defining trauma as anything that was too overwhelming to feel alone).
Perhaps you have tried strategies that no longer work. Perhaps you have had support before and would now like to try it again or continue where you left off. Perhaps there is something specific that you would like to gain more insight into and healing from. Whatever your reason for coming, you will find a safe, non-judgemental and accepting environment where you will have a confidential space to bring whatever you would like to work through at a pace and depth that feels safe to you.

When working with parents or when a family based treatment is indicated, I often draw on the following models: COS -P (Circle of security parenting) and MBT (Mentalisation based therapy).
My clinical background is in Psychodynamic psychotherapy with emphasis on Attachment theory and human development across the life span. Having an in-depth understanding of how our early beginnings impact our view of self, life, and relationships, assists me to support my clients toward developing empathy and compassion for themselves and others. I believe this can be an integral factor in the healing process and in attaining a sense of personal freedom.

Since my studies my journey has given me experiences areas such as youth development, trauma and family violence.
If you’re at a point in life where you’re wrestling with issues or experiencing the impact of past challenges, you might be unsure of what to do about it or you may be losing hope in facing the struggle. Counselling provides the opportunity to see new perspectives and discovering new ways of moving towards where you want to go. Through the words uttered and exchanged in our conversations, counselling gives the chance to create, redefine, and author the stories you want in your life. Whatever it is you're going through, I look forward to meeting you as you are and figuring out together who or where you might want to be.

Sometimes we all need space to reflect on what’s going on or to talk with someone outside our immediate circle. Therapy is a confidential space that can help you to develop the insight and skill you need to work through difficult or challenging experiences and find ways to live a life with greater resilience and purpose. My approach is empathetic, warm and non-judgemental. I work flexibly and collaboratively with my clients and believe in tailoring therapy to meet their individual needs.

Sometimes we all need the space to take time out to reflect on what's going on with us; or to talk to someone outside our immediate family and friends, a trained and experienced professional, who can assist us to think and feel deeper into our life, work and relationships. As we do this we begin to feel more human, more in balance and more able to warm up to our own spontaneity, vitality and creativity in response to what is required- be it coming to some resolutions, developing or strengthening aspects of ourselves, moving forward, or 'leaning into' our lives in a more dynamic or committed way. Therapy assists.

My foundational practice is based on Internal Family Systems (IFS) which I integrate with somatic healing.
As Bessel van der Kolk notes, trauma is specifically an event that overwhelms the central nervous system, altering the way we process and recall memories. “Trauma is not the story of something that happened back then," he adds. "It's the current imprint of that pain, horror, and fear living inside people.” I am a well-established health professional who has dedicated my professional life working on releasing trauma in a natural, nurturing way, returning my clients to their natural state of wholeness. I call this "The Journey Home". I work from a neuroscience perspective. Harmonizing all aspects of our being Mind, Body and Soul

Family Therapy Counsellors
Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
