Are you finding it hard to cope with all the changes that have been going on lately? Do you find yourself getting easily overwhelmed and stressed. Perhaps you're having thoughts like "I'm not good enough", or "why am I being so emotional?" You may have tried turning to the things that once made you happy but have found limited success and are left feeling unfulfilled or stuck.

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.

Better Self - Better Relationships - Better World. If you're wanting more confidence in yourself, more trust in your relationships, and more acceptance in the world, then I may be able to help. You'll find me an active listener. Through evidence-based interventions, I'll build a supportive therapeutic alliance with you, enabling you to achieve positive change. However, this requires your commitment to effort, time, and investment. The average course is some half dozen sessions, while deeper issues generally need more. Currently, I'm able to offer $890 as prepayment for 6 standard 50-minute sessions - more than a 10% discount.

Counselling provides a safe, non-judgemental space for you to be heard and feel understood. It might not always feel like it, but you are the expert on your own life. My counselling approach seeks to work with you to explore what’s going well and what’s proving a challenge. Together, we’ll explore your values, assumptions and beliefs and create supportive, functional strategies and solutions to help you make sense of where you are right now.

As a clinical psychologist and certified anxiety coach I help women who are tired of anxiety or depression getting in the way of everything they do. I support those who are passionate and wanting more from their relationships and their lives, but are feeling held back by mental health concerns. I work with women who want more intimacy (get your libido back) and connection, as well as mothers who are tried of anxiety getting in the way of their parenting. I support career and business women who want to scale their dreams but find anxiety keeps getting in the way...

Are you experiencing struggles in your relationships? Unresolved conflict/disputes can lead to low mood, anxiety, and stress and the spiral continues. Sometimes we wonder, where to from here. I work with motivated individuals willing to explore what is really happening in their relationships, namely how you communicate and interpret what it happening around you. This is a reflection of your attachment style. By understanding how we show up, or not, in relationships we create space to improve our connections.

Hi I’m Justine and I have called Queenstown my home for 23 years and offer private counselling services here in the beautiful Wakatipu. Counselling offers you a space to talk openly about experiences, thoughts and feelings that may be troubling you or that you would like to find solutions to. Through talking, therapy can provide clarity and the opportunity to develop new strategies and ways of working through problems which can lead to an individual feeling more in control and empowered in their life. I would like to walk beside you on this journey.
