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.

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

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.
