Are you constantly putting pressure upon yourself and feeling overwhelmed by life's demand? Do you find yourself suppressing your emotions or find it difficult letting go? Regretting the past, worrying about the future and not living in the present moment? Feeling overwhelmed with stress at home, family demands, arguments, expectations, or separations? Feeling as though things are spiraling out of control and cannot stop worrying? I focus on anxiety and worry, stress and burnout, life transitions, difficulty in focusing, emotional reactivity, negative thought patterns, over-thinking and ruminating thoughts.

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).

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

In our work together we explore what is getting in the way of you having a fulfilling, happy and authentic version of your life - whatever that might look like for you. In this process, I will be gently supporting and guiding you in the direction you would like to go; whether it’s becoming less stressed, feeling more at peace with yourself and others, less worried about what others think of you, feeling more confident in your own skin, finding enjoyment in your relationships and having a satisfying work life.

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.

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

My clients are ready to learn ways to help themselves. 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.

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

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Dunedin 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 Dunedin 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 Dunedin, or Child Psychologists in Dunedin.

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