Biography

Hi, As a counsellor in Taupo, I enjoy coming alongside of my clients, whether they are adults, couples or teens and supporting them to grow through the changes or challenges they experience. I work as a Narrative Therapy and Person-Centred Therapy Counsellor. This means I like to work at your pace, explore the situation, consider different perspectives and work towards a solution that sits comfortably with who you are and your experience of life. If you aren't ready to put whats happening into words, sometimes a Sandtray gives a easier way to explore your situation. If we are working with trauma or flashbacks or just not being able to stop thinking about something, sometimes just having the tools mindfulness gives to let you be present, escape to now, and find rest, allows space to find a way forward. With an interest in attachment I also appreciate the role the relationships around us may contribute to the problem but also often to healing.
