Biography

Originally from Waimate in South Canterbury, I have extensive clinical experience over a period of 25 years within a variety of counselling and education institutions in both Australia and New Zealand. I have full membership with MNZAC I have completed a Masters in Clinical Counselling, with a focus on Family Therapy, Couples Therapy and Group Work from the University of New England, Australia, and a postgraduate Bachelor in Counselling from the same University I currently work as a Clinical Counsellor across several schools in Dunedin, as well as a small private practice located in central Dunedin. The experience of engaging in counselling is a deeply personal journey that affects all of us in different ways and sometimes in ways we would never have expected. By us talking together through your concerns, counselling can help you to see solutions you didn’t know were there. It can also help you find ways to cope better and move on in your life I understand and honour that each person story is unique in that we are all affected by life in different ways. I also understand the importance of being respectful of each persons culture and beliefs systems My clinical work is shaped by several different counselling modalities and frameworks, including: Family Therapy, Couples Therapy, Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Enneagram work, Lifestage Transition Work, Counselling with teenagers, Counselling work with Men and Boys, Counselling work with Women, Loss and Grief Counselling, and Trauma Informed Counselling I am also able to offer; short term funded (free) counselling for families and/or friends affected by suicide and for Individuals and whānau who would benefit from brief therapeutic support focused on bereavement from suicide.
