Talofa lava, Kia Ora and hello! My name is Tillie, and I believe in being authentic and genuine in all the conversations I have. I am passionate in providing a safe non-judgmental and supportive space for clients to share their stories. This allows clients to feel heard, valued, and acknowledge in their journeys. I use a variety of therapeutic models and believe working collectively, and tapping into the clients’ own individual strengths, values, skills and experiences can be a pathway to empowerment and a journey of healing.

Successful counselling is based on the quality of the relationship between myself (the therapist) and you (the client). My approach is based on deep respect and non-judgemental acceptance for all people I work with. Utilising an element of creativity within therapy enables you to speak through art making, and reflection, because sometimes spoken words don’t exist for your experience. In my practice I offer counselling and arts therapy, professional supervision and coaching, and career development.

If you have been feeling lonely, sad or anxious, we can share a safe space where you can tell me your concerns. The main purpose of therapy is generating deep awareness of one's own personality and behaviour, understand about your inner world (thoughts, emotions, feelings), inquiring how our past affects our present. With this understanding one can move onto learning skills in order to manage emotions and behaviour. The therapeutic approach I use depends on the client's needs and resources available, with a strong foundation on a trauma-informed approach.

Life can feel overwhelming and sometimes goes differently than planned. It throws us unexpected curveballs, leaving us feeling anxious, depressed, sad, bewildered, grieving, and confused. In those times, it can feel like we are at a crossroads—not knowing which path to choose. Talking with a nonjudgmental and empathetic therapist can be an important first step towards healing and clarity. I provide relational and emotion-focused psychotherapy to individuals who would like support during difficult times to make sense of their emotions, experiences, and way of being in the world.
