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 have emotionally supported hundreds of children through difficult moments for many years. I have studied in the USA, UK and NZ and worked with the children of the Christchurch Earthquakes for several years. As a volunteer, I provided emotional first aid in conjunction with crisis responders and as an in-person Youthline counsellor. Recently, I was employed as a Child and Adolescent Counsellor serving 13 South Otago area primary and intermediate schools. Currently, I am counselling at Mount Maunganui Intermediate School two days a week and working in my own private practice.

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.

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.

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.

Reduce stress, reduce anxiety, reduce overwhelm. 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.
