You’re here because you want to transform. You want to be happy and live free from fear, uncertainty, stress, anxiety and depression. You don’t want to suffer anymore. You want a new way of living that is energising and fulfilling. You want to let go of what is holding you back and be your most authentic and compassionate self. It takes tremendous courage to let go of the past and imagine a different future for yourself. So, who am I and how can I help?

I see individuals and couples for a wide number of needs. I generally see clients above the age of 18. People come to counselling because they want changes in their lives and are unsure how to make those changes. Often they are stuck in stories or habits of the past , or traumas have locked them into unhelpful ways of being. People use therapy to achieve those goals and then move on.

I work with all ages and specialise working with children, teens and young adults who are struggling. Challenges can come from anywhere; the loss of a loved one, a health condition, problems at school or work, anxiety, trauma, bullying, depression, attacks on dignity, abuse, or being spoken to in unhelpful ways. Problems can get you feeling overwhelmed, hopeless and stuck. I invite you to let me journey with you from that stuck place to hope and peace.

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.

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.

Are you overworked, overwhelmed and frustrated a lot of the time? Are your health and your relationships struggling because of it? Do you feel like you are stuck in a system that just doesn’t enable you to live authentically? Have you completely lost touch with living in accordance with Nature’s rhythms and long for a slower pace of life? Do you know intuitively that there must be a better way, but you just don’t know where to begin? When we stop listening to our body and living as part of Nature, we suffer. It shows up in every area of our life.

You have trouble sleeping. You're tired (mind the pun) of lying awake at night tossing & turning. The thought of going to bed makes you worry. You don't drop off when you put your head on your pillow. If you do, you wake up during the night and can't get back to sleep for hours. You worry about the toll your sleeplessness is having on your health, your mood, your relationships and your ability to function at work. You want to sleep better. You want to look forward to bedtime. You want to wake up feeling refreshed. You want to feel like sleep isn't controlling your life. Assess your insomnia here: https://www.thebettersleepclinic.com
