My Role

I believe that you are the expert on your life and that my role as a caring and skilled counsellor is to help by listening, empathising and encouraging you to grow your self-awareness, make better sense of your past and present experiences so you can become more aware of who you really are and what you want for yourself. By helping you identify your goals - you can be in charge of moving towards the life you deserve.

Dip Counselling, Cert Transactional Analysis Counselling - HD&T Institute

I am a qualified counsellor and family therapist with a private practice on the North Shore and Central Auckland. I am also the counsellor at an Auckland intermediate school. I have a person centred focus, utilising Psychodynamic Counselling, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused, Narrative and Systemic modalities.

I trained at the Human Development and Training Institute of New Zealand (a highly respected training institution based in Auckland), specialising in counselling and family therapy.

I, like all ethical counsellors, attend professional supervision as required by the New Zealand Association of Counsellors and I am bound by the Association’s code of ethics which outlines ethical and safe counselling practice for clients and counsellors alike.
