I was born in South Africa but have lived in New Zealand most of my life. I have had many life experiences such as volunteering in the NZ Fire Service (11 years) and travelling and volunteering in Africa. My passion for counselling grew as I spent time with people in my various experiences and travels, and discovered my desire for better skills to more effectively listen and help people navigate through their shared life experiences with me. I consider it a deep privilege to share a welcoming, safe, and honoring space with a person who chooses to share their footsteps with me. I am also a faith based counselling service (Christian).

I am passionate about helping people break through barriers that are commonly imposed by the dominant culture while finding ways to work more comfortably both inside and outside ‘the box’ to achieve goals. I've worked with clients in settings ranging from prison to university, and you can count on my acceptance ‘as you are’ without judgment while helping you recognize and recover your own strengths. I bring expertise to support you with a wide variety of concerns, and I have particularly enjoyed working with clients whose lived experience includes neurodiversity, gender diversity, and relationship diversity.

Many people find themselves struggling with difficult feelings, painful experiences and a sense of not living the life they want. When the things that used to work stop working, it's hard to know what to do. We can feel very stuck, but perhaps the idea of things changing is daunting too.

Having been trained not only as a psychotherapist but also as a Yoga psychology teacher, I believe that the events we have been through are part of our soul's journey towards wholeness. By learning from our experiences and transcending our suffering, we become more conscious, awaken our inner light, find our purpose, and discover our qualities and gifts. My approach combines the sciences behind Western psychologies (psychodynamic, transpersonal, etc.) with the wisdom behind Eastern traditions/ philosophies (Yoga psychology, mindfulness, etc). If that resonates with you, I am happy to assist you on your journey.
