Kia ora, I am a registered social worker and a counsellor with over 25 years experience in the area of individual counselling, family therapy and child, adolescent and family mental health. Added to my social work and family therapy I have increased my counselling skills with a Masters in Counselling. I am passionate about helping individuals and families towards reducing stressors in their lives. My goal is to assist you to move from an area of feeling stuck to finding solutions that work for you. I look forward to working together with you.
