I have a Bachelor of Counselling in Person-Centred Counselling (PCC) and have trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for individuals, couples and families. I am a Counsellor registered with and full member of, the New Zealand Association of Counsellors (NZAC), working within their code of ethics. I am ACC registered for sensitive claims and am an approved counsellor with Hope For The Children.
I am passionate about helping children, young people and adults as individuals, couples or families, to live and relate well. In particular, I have a special interest in working with individuals, couples and families whose relationships are distressed or who would like to deepen their relational bonds. I am also very experienced in working cross-culturally with people who come from cultural backgrounds other than my own, which is Pakeha.
I like to work from a very relational, holistic perspective which includes spirituality when relevant to my clients. I provide confidential counselling support for a wide range of issues such as grief and loss, trauma, mental illness, addictions, personal distress, relationship distress, parenting and family issues, workplace difficulties, life transitions and aging.
My full fee is $80.00 per one hour session but I am willing to negotiate a lesser fee if this is not affordable to you. I am able to work with people who qualify for ACC Sensitive Claims support and Disability Allowance through Work and Income. I can also access funding subsidies for children and young people who qualify for Hope For The Children funding support.
I operate my Counselling services in Whitecliffs, Darfield and Methven . I am available for daytime and evening appointments.
I provide supervision for community and health professionals. I work to acknowledge your professional work within the context of your full life journey and to provide a safe, supportive and nurturing relationship for you to reflect on, discuss and explore your work experiences, both those that go well and those that do not.
