I have a BA degree in Counselling and I am a provisional member of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors. My approach is a sensitive balance of support and challenge to enable growth and change. It is broadly relational which means I am interested in a person’s way of relating to others as a way to understand themselves. I have experience working with a wide range of clients, issues and ages and work with individuals and couples. I work from a Pluralistic approach drawing mainly from Humanistic theories where the emphasis is on self-development, working in the ‘here and now’, thinking about your feelings and taking responsibility for your thoughts and actions.
I believe that a good relationship between client and counsellor is important for the effectiveness of therapy and I offer a 30 minutes session so we can introduce ourselves and discuss how we may work together.
