Do you feel empty, wrong, broken, scared, lonely, lacking in direction, unhappy, depressed, anxious, have trouble with relationships or notice yourself repeating unhealthy patterns in your life? Do you feel stuck, unsure, disconnected or isolated?
These are many of the reasons people come to therapy, if you are feeling some or all of these issues, you are not alone and this is not the way life needs to continue to be.
It is my passion to help people to feel better about themselves, their lives and relationships and feel connected and fulfilled.
I provide a safe, supportive and warm environment to explore and discover what is important for you to feel whole and connected again. The way I practice is to help you to become more self aware and gain a deeper understanding of where limiting beliefs come from and how these play out in your life. It is my experience that when one feels completely accepted, acknowledged, and taken seriously, when one is listened to, treated with respect and gentleness and can learn to see themselves this way too, magic happens and transformation occurs.
I love working with people and helping them believe in who they are. Every individual is unique and special in their own way and I am constantly moved and touched by the courage and deep yearnings of my clients to connect with their inner truth and wisdom and lead happier more fulfilled lives.
I am a registered psychotherapist and a member of PBANZ, GANZ and NZAC and am currently certifying as an EFT therapist.

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT)
During couples counselling sessions I draw on my skills and knowledge of gestalt psychotherapy and Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) developed by Dr Sue Johnston.
EFT has been shown to be very effective in helping to re-establish or improve safe, loving and nurturing connection between partners.
Often in couples there is a pursuing partner and a withdrawing partner and in times or distress each person behaves in repeating ways within the negative cycle, they get stuck and don't know how to make it better again. During therapy we together gain clarity about each partners role within this negative cycle, and learn new, more loving ways to be together and create stronger, safer connection.
One Hour (EFT) Couples Therapy Session: $70 - $120
I have a Diploma in Massage therapy and 20 years of experience in treating a wide range of conditions. I qualified in Swedish massage and trigger point therapy at the Canterbury College of Natural Medicine and have a real passion for treating those with specific and often long term pain. Many of my clients are sports people who understand the positive impact massage can have on their performance.
Therapeutic massage can be beneficial for treating pain, stiffness, restricted range of motion of a joint or to speed up recovery after an injury or event. It can also help treat tension headaches, reduce stress and anxiety and help improve sleep
Each first time appointment starts with a brief health history, ensuring I know about any conditions, medications, or injuries which may affect the massage. Treatments are tailored to meet the specific needs of the client and referrals will be made where necessary.
Half Hour Massage $40
One hour Massage $80
