Re-opening to new clients July 1st 2024, please visit my personal website for detailed info and my availability. While being a human isn’t always easy, there are ways to make it easier and more fulfilling - anyone can learn to make significant improvements to their lives and relationships with insight, new tools, a bit of humour, and the right support. I particularly enjoy working with people who experience anxiety or are too hard on themselves, and anyone ready and willing to do the work of making changes to patterns that no longer serve them.

I work with parents as a catalyst for change - helping them shift from surviving, to thriving. I empower parents to press pause and reconsider how they actually want family life to be, and how they want to get there. My coaching weaves the science of child development and psychology into the unique intricacies of each family situation, providing a truly tailored, and therefore, effective approach. Are you worried about your child’s behaviour, well-being or learning? Do you find yourself doing or saying things as a parent, you wish you didn’t? Do you feel uncertain about how best to approach an issue with your child? I can help.

At Practice 371 we are committed to offering specialist inclusive care to those with concerns around their eating behaviours and body image. These can exist anywhere along a continuum from formally diagnosed eating disorders to problematic eating behaviours or exercise, concerns with weight and shape, or the effects of dieting and diet culture. Our team use a non-diet approach, and are aligned with the Health At Every Size (HAES) movement. Our priority is the respectful care of all people and the development of helpful thoughts and behaviours around food and bodies, rather than a specific focus on weight and size.

We all know how difficult it can be to start something new. Whether it’s your first time in therapy or not, it’s quite normal to feel a range of different emotions. With this said, sometimes leaning into the process and stepping out of your comfort zone can bring a sense of relief and broaden your perspective on what’s possible. At times, we can feel as if we are walking life’s path alone, but that doesn’t mean we have to. Therapy provides that additional support and guidance to uncover barriers, facilitate options, and choose a value driven direction in life.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist and I work with adults over the age of 18. I offer individual therapy in a safe therapeutic space where individuals can explore and understand themselves better. Therapy is a pathway that can help individuals to become more in tune with their authentic selves and strengthen their relationships with others. Psychotherapy aims to add depth to life and relational experiences by assisting individuals to understand what is causing them mental distress. Through greater self-awareness and exploration, individuals are likely to experience an increase in emotional, professional, and relational growth.

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. In addition, I offer supervision, and K9-assisted therapy.

Tēnā tātou katoa. Welcome. Change can be very difficult, whether it’s happening around us or within us. It’s even more difficult if we or someone we care for are struggling or suffering. Psychodynamic psychotherapy can provide time, space, and safety to understand what we need to heal and flourish. Understanding alone may not seem enough, and it often isn’t. But understanding offers a place to rest and recover, to see where we’ve come from and where we’re going. Understanding shared with another person can be a powerful and effective step towards wellbeing.
