We all experience times in life when things are just too much and feel too hard to deal with on our own. It can be hard to talk to friends and family as often there can be an agenda. Counselling is a space where you can be you, without any judgement, and I believe the hard times in life teach us the most. Counselling is my passion and I enjoy giving people the opportunity to have a space to look at issues without being judged. I believe many people have not had the opportunity to really experience being listened to, this can enable you to create great changes in your life.

Many people find themselves struggling with difficult feelings, painful experiences and a sense of not living the life they want. When the things that used to work stop working, it's hard to know what to do. We can feel very stuck, but perhaps the idea of things changing is daunting too.

As a clinical arts therapist (AThR) working with adolescents and adults I offer an alternative to talk therapy and counselling. When we can’t find the words to talk about our concerns, arts therapy provides an alternative pathway to discover what is troubling us. Being "good at art" is not important in arts therapy - the process is our focus not the product. For people with trauma histories our sessions will also focus on nervous system regulation and how to manage states of fight, flight, freeze and fawn. Engaging with creative processes invites presence and helps reduce nervous system dysregulation.

Haere Mai, Welcome. I’m Daisy, and I am a certified EMDR therapist and member of EMDRNZ. I approach therapy from the understanding that our past and present are intrinsically linked, and that much of what causes us suffering in the here and now can be traced back to difficult experiences in our past. Anything that happens too much, too fast, too soon, or not enough can overwhelm our brain and lead to trauma. EMDR can be used as a tool to help jump-start our brain's natural healing process so that you can learn to live more fully in the present.

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.

Counselling can increase self-awareness and help identify, address, and find ways of coping with the challenges that occur in life. Holistic counselling includes a person's physical, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being. Holism is a form of healing that considers the whole person — body, mind, and spirit. I work with teens and adults and believe given the right environment and support, we all possess the capacity for self-healing and growth. I also use research-based interventions to reduce anxiety, improve mood, process trauma, and improve relationships.
