In Person Therapy Available

Next available Friday, Jul 8th



For the last few years i have been working for Grief Support Services Tauranga. In addition to this my wife and I also run a small Counselling Support business from our home. I always consider it an honour and a priviledge to be entrusted with anothers story and for this reason confidentiality is paramount. Before training as a Counsellor i had been involved in facilitating Men's groups for a number of years. My previous background was spent in the building industry as a glazier for 37 years so building sites became second nature to me as did working alongside other tradies. I got married in 1990 and have two grown up children, all of whom have played a role in shaping me into the person I am today.
