I specialise in treating people with addiction, as well as their families. I believe the disease of addiction is one that we can recover from and that it's a health problem that can be treated successfully. My approach is client-centred using modalities including motivational interviewing, CBT and the 12 Steps. I studied at the Hazelden Graduate School of Addiction Studies in Minnesota, USA, graduating in 2009. I am registered with the New Zealand Addiction Practitioners' Association, Dapaanz, a professional organisation with a code of ethics. I am also a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT).

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.

The world is a scary, lonely place and we can get through this together. I'm here to help you endure life's challenges so you can reconnect and value yourself and others. I am highly qualified, promote the autonomy of the person and provide an in-dept, up to date approach. My approach developed from a combination of training in human development, psychotherapy, psychology and mental health, along with an understanding from my own broad, unique, yet rich human experience - that we all have. Sometimes psychological ideas and medication don't quite complete the puzzle. Therefore in our space we work together to liberate the unique you!

I am a psychotherapist, a supervisor, and a sex therapist; these disciplines intertwine and inform my clinical practice every day. My approach is psychodynamic, which means that you and I will work together, which will help us to unravel the meanings and interpretations that sometimes are affecting the way we see our life and the patterns we find ourselves in. When psychotherapy meets sex therapy, this tool encompasses all and every aspect of a person’s expressions of life.

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 believe that addiction is a primary disease and that a person's other issues will stem from this fundamental problem. Therefore it's important to treat the addiction first. People with addiction often use alcohol and other drugs or behaviours to 'cope'. In the beginning the substance or the behaviour (such as sex addiction) was the 'solution', but after a while it became the problem. My approach is to offer therapy that is focused on a new, results-focused solution. The goal is offering my clients 'tools' so that they can change behaviour that is causing problems in their lives.

Psychotherapy is a deeply personal journey. This journey is unique to each individual, where the journey may begin with seeking purpose in the person’s life or seeking to make meaning of life and its mysteries. It may involve seeking relief from emotional pain and suffering or unbearable feelings. It might also consist of confronting shadows from your past or healing from a traumatic past event. I see my work as a psychotherapist as accompanying you on your journey together, where I hope to support you in finding growth, balance, and a sense of harmony and peace. I also offer K9-assisted therapy.

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.

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.

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.

Sexual Addiction Counsellors
Sexual addictions usually are revealed in stages: Preoccupation: continual fantasies about sexual prospects or situations, which can trigger episodes of sexual "acting-out": Ritualization: a preferred sexual activity or situation is often stereotyped and repetitive; Sexual Compulsion: continual engagement in sexual activity despite negative consequences and desire to stop; Despair: guilt or shame over inability to control behaviour or feel remorse; and, Other behavioural problems, particularly chemical dependency and eating disorders.

Sex addiction or love addiction in marriage is common and inevitably leads to betrayal and hurt. Overcoming and recovery from sexual addiction starts with recognizing that you are out of control.
