Experienced Counsellor & Life Coach who cares
Do you want to feel happier and stronger, resolve relationship issues or find a way through your current challenges? If so, you're in the right place.
I specialise in working with couples, individuals and teens who are looking for support & tools to make real changes in their lives, outlook or relationships.
I work with clients experiencing anxiety, stress, low self esteem, relationship issues, depression, life crossroads, trauma, work issues and other challenges.
Sessions offer a place for you to talk about things, to heal & grow, or gain clarity and direction. You can also pick up effective tools & resources that allow you to live a happier, calmer life and transform your relationships.
Online and phone sessions available
I am now offering Counselling and Life Coaching sessions via Zoom, Skype and via phone nationwide.
You can book a session here.
When normal business services resume, I also offer sessions in person at my offices in Wellington and Wainuiomata.
How I work
I help individuals and couples to make lasting changes in their lives through Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques and Life Coaching.
Clients often remark on how they enjoy sessions with my down to earth and personal approach.

An effective treatment for anxiety and depression
If you experience anxiety, depression, or ongoing stress, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help. It's one of the best, proven therapies available for anxiety and depression.
I love sharing Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques and seeing the positive changes my clients experience.
These techniques are useful for everyone but especially if you're battling with anxiety or depression.
A key part of what I offer is helping individuals and couples to grow healthier relationships with their loved ones and also with themselves.
Often we need to first become aware of our unhealthy patterns before we can find new ways of being in our relationships.
What is Life Coaching?
As a Life Coach I love helping people to grow in confidence, to tune into what they really want for their lives and support them in taking achievable steps to their goals and dreams.
Life coaching is a great fit with counselling, helping you take those next steps forward in your life and relationships to where you want to be.
Counselling for teens and 20's
Teens and twenty-somethings are facing more pressures today, and that's reflected in growing rates of anxiety and depression - particularly among young women.
Study and exam pressure, the drive for perfection, the constant buzz of social media, bullying, body image and gender identity issues, and drug & alcohol issues.
I love working with young people - offering a supportive space to talk, where they can also pick up practical tools for combating stress, anxiety & depression and new perspectives for a happier, calmer mind.
Life crossroads counselling
I often help people going through big life changes such as separation, divorce and loss. Receiving some support during these times can help a lot.
Sessions offer a space where you can talk about things, feel supported and heard, and where you can start to make sense of things and find a way forward.
Can you relate to any of these?
ongoing stress and anxiety
you've felt low for more than a few weeks
you feel stuck in a rut & don't know how to move forwards
noisy inner critic/perfectionist
you avoid conflict
you're always keeping everyone else happy
living in overdrive and feeling burnt out
going through divorce/loss
your life feels out of balance
you have difficulty saying "no"
your job's not really "you"
feeling isolated and lonely
people take advantage/bully you
you keep having the same issues over and over
Any of these factors can impact our well-being and lead to anxiety, stress and even depression.
I can support you through your challenges and help you take the next steps to a more balanced and fulfilling life.
I offer experience in:
anxiety & stress
relationship and marriage counselling
divorce and separation counselling
motivation and direction
healing from trauma
taking good care of you - your energy, well-being, sleep etc.
self esteem and confidence
