Kiaora. I have recently moved back to Aotearoa after 12 years in Hong Kong and am busy setting up my business including applying for NZAC provisonal membership. I am looking forward to meeting and working with you on finding your authentic self. I like to encourage you to become curious about yourself and where you thoughts and emotions come from. Or how you can cope with the problems that arise from everyday living. Life can really throw some punches and often you are not given a choice. My role is to be there for you, encouraging exploration and change and an ability to ride out the waves.
Taking steps on your growth journey is a sometimes challenging but deeply rewarding way of valuing and prioritising yourself so it's important to find a good fit. I work only with women and am passionate about supporting and empowering them towards their authentic selves. Please contact me over email or phone to schedule a free 30-minute consultation. Currently I am not working with couples, those in crisis or at high risk of self-harm.
I have always been passionate about working with and helping other people, and I truly believe that change is evoked through a healthy collaboration between the client and counsellor. Through the relationships with my clients, I aim to help them learn to better balance their emotions and cope with the small & large stresses of life. An essential aspect to well-being is our ability to look within, perceive the mind, & reflect on our experiences. These skills can help you “grow through what you go through” & learn to align your thoughts, feelings, & behaviors in order to set yourself up for wellness.
I am registered as an ACC provider and I have a membership with NZCCA. I have worked as a counsellor for over 6 years and I have experience in working with people from all walks of life who are dealing with a wide range of issues. I use different models of counselling and my passion is to provide the best service to my clients.

Hi, I’m an individual and relationship counsellor, drug and alcohol specialist, family mediator and coach with over 22 years experience. I work with all issues including anxiety, depression, grief, family, bullying, trauma, parenting, blended families, stress, addictions, same sex relationships, anger management, communication and mindfulness.
Are you looking to make a change and be able to maintain it? Perhaps you are looking for support or a different perspective on things? Want to be able to improve your mood and/or communication? Want to have control over your anger and/or addiction? Want to be able to express love and communicate better? Getting personal Counselling and Coaching will make that difference.
You feel so lost and defeated. You aren’t sure what exactly is wrong, just that something is just not right. Is it depression? Anxiety? You can’t even tell sometimes. You want to have control of your life again! To feel better! You don't want to be exhausted and overwhelmed and scared by everything. All. The. Time. You want peace, confidence and to know you can do hard things! Trust me, this IS possible for you!
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.
I am both a clinical psychologist and organisation strategist. I work with individuals and organisations, including in the cross-over area between personal and professional wellbeing and career issues. I have experience in many different high-pressure organisations in many sectors: health, public, nonprofit, entrepreneurial and startups. I work face to face and online with people from all walks of life. Recent client feedback on my work: 'I was quite astounded with how spot on you were with being able to articulate what was going on for me'. I use a practical approach based on using the best current evidence about what works.
Perhaps you are overwhelmed with depression or anxiety, feel helpless or hopeless and you want to get yourself back again - enjoy life? Perhaps you find life is unfulfilling, you feel stuck in the same rut and struggle to change your life to be more what you would like it to be? Or are you experiencing conflict, relationship issues, self-esteem issues or stress and need help and support at this time? Together we can find a way forward. I am the author of the "Out of the Fog" programme delivered in group and individual therapy which has helped hundreds of people to recover/become well from depression/anxiety.
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
