Online Therapy


With 15 years of experience delivering therapy, I help my clients bring into form real changes for enlightened lives. I offer Therapy and counselling online for adults and children. I hold an NZQA Master in Clinical psychology, I am a MNZAC counsellor and a certified FEAP Psychotherapist (in Spain). I'm also training as an EMDR therapist, in complex trauma and I'm ACC accredited. I have worked as a psychotherapist with both adults and children across several countries in Europe and in New Zealand in four languages. My clients are of very diverse backgrounds and present a vast range of mental health symptoms and conditions. Sessions can be held in English, Italian, Spanish and French.
