Unfortunately, life doesn’t come with a user's manual. That's why it's common to feel stuck, anxious, depressed and not enough when life isn’t working for you. As a Master-qualified Counsellor specialising in the treatment of these issues, I am trained to help you understand the causes of your challenging emotions. In counselling, you will learn new tools to: manage your emotions, enhance your confidence and self-worth, rewire your mindset, live with direction and purpose, restore meaningful relationships and create a happy life.

I understand the value of needing a space that provides the freedom to say how it is and receive validation of what that person is experiencing. Working from a strength-based solution-focused approach, it is my hope to bring this privacy of thought into a therapeutic context to unravel and explore truth and feeling. I want each client that walks into my room to experience a relaxed atmosphere where they can be real. While we all understand that help begins with ourselves, stepping into a counselling room is that very thing that will bring about that very process.

I help people rediscover their strengths, passions and purpose and find meaning, joy and happiness in their lives. Most of us experience a moment in our lives where we stop and take stock. This may come as a result of a big shock, the loss of a loved one, a relationship, a job or some other trauma that shakes us to our very core. Or it may just be a gnawing sense that there is something more to life than what you are currently experiencing. These big shocks or subtle gnawings can start to erode our sense of happiness and fulfilment. We may experience depression, sadness, a sense of isolation, confusion or feel deeply overwhelmed.

Do you need someone safe, empathetic and genuine to speak with? Someone who is not in your usual circle, so can offer a different outlook on problems? Someone who understands life is not easy and has many challenges along the way? I enjoy working with people who have either long term or short term challenges or goals, working towards a better understanding of themselves. Perhaps life has got you down, and you are not sure where to start in your journey of reclaiming life. That is when you may find a counsellor is someone to help you through these challenges - to support you, be honest with, and to help you reach your goals.

Ideal clients could be suffering from disappointing life experiences, an unfair chance at life and those who are needing awhi, encouragement and support. They can be feeling sad or down, confused, have a reduced ability to concentrate, fearful, mood swings, feelings of guilt, withdrawal, loneliness, tiredness, low energy or have trouble sleeping. Understanding these issues by listening, identifying their needs and determine some goals may help formulate changing circumstances for a better future of growth and prosperity; a balanced life with whānau, friends and work situations.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Bay of Plenty?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Bay of Plenty specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
