My ideal client is seeking or experiencing change. Whether they have been trying to come out of an addiction, been diagnosed with a new illness or disease, changed career/relationship/perspective or are simply done with the way their life is progressing - they want change. They feel disheartened by the consequences of decisions they've made, fatigued by the daily grind of emotions and wearing masks, and are looking for ways to ease their suffering. It could be that they don't understand or know how to connect to their own feelings or behaviours, feel unlovable/wrong/bad, and have exhausted all other ways of healing.

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.

Together we embark on a supportive journey, whether that is through developing self-awareness, self-compassion, self-care, healthy communication, better life balance or about acquiring new skills and strategies to better support themselves. Client issues, needs and goals may be unique, but ultimately my clients are ready to try something new because old patterns produce the same old results.

I specialise in treating people with addiction, as well as their families. I believe the disease of addiction is one that we can recover from and that it's a health problem that can be treated successfully. My approach is client-centred using modalities including motivational interviewing, CBT and the 12 Steps. I studied at the Hazelden Graduate School of Addiction Studies in Minnesota, USA, graduating in 2009. I am registered with the New Zealand Addiction Practitioners' Association, Dapaanz, a professional organisation with a code of ethics. I am also a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT).

As Bessel van der Kolk notes, trauma is specifically an event that overwhelms the central nervous system, altering the way we process and recall memories. “Trauma is not the story of something that happened back then," he adds. "It's the current imprint of that pain, horror, and fear living inside people.” I am a well-established health professional who has dedicated my professional life working on releasing trauma in a natural, nurturing way, returning my clients to their natural state of wholeness. I call this "The Journey Home". I work from a neuroscience perspective. Harmonising all aspects of our being ~ Mind ~ Body ~ Soul

My role as a counsellor is to help you to get on the path to bring about the changes you wish to make in your life. I believe in listening to, valuing and honouring people and the path they walk in life. I am available to meet with you to discuss and talk through anything that is concerning you, or that you would like to see different in your life. An initial counselling session will enable you to discuss with me what you want to achieve during the counselling process. It will also help me to gain a bigger picture of who you are, so together we can work out how you will bring the changes you seek to make.

Kia ora, you have found courage to look for support. I imagine that things are out of balance and your inner world would appreciate some harmony. The courage you have found is a quality that you were born with, like creativity, confidence, clarity and compassion. These qualities that you were born with still exist within, remain undamaged and have the wisdom of healing. Over the years we may have lost site of these qualities, buried with multiple parts like fear, anxiety, anger, shame and conditions of worth. You can return as the rightful leader in your life allowing your parts to relax and heal

The people who find most success in psychotherapy are motivated and able to develop a good relationship with their therapist. They have good insight and are willing to meet weekly or in some cases more regularly to maintain an emotional attachment. This is the basis of healing, learning and understanding thoughts, feelings and how they influence behaviour. Developmentally the earlier the trauma the more frequent contact needs to be. I enjoy working in the community. A community based approach is more relational work as opposed to analytical.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Nelson are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Nelson then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Nelson, or Child Psychologists in Nelson.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Nelson psychologists specialising in EMDR.


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 Nelson 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.
