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.

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.

Relational poverty is all around us, showing up inside us: self-bullying talk (at the roots of low self-esteem and depression); between us and others (Whanaungatanga: inter-personal difficulties, work-place stress and relationship problems); as well us at a psycho-spiritual level (Wairuatanga): feeling alone and unconnected spiritually to a deity or higher power. I offer support in all of these areas of wellbeing, through counselling, supervision and professional development training around attachment issues which include anxiety, stress, depression, relationship issues, grief and loss, and trauma.
