I am a graduate of AUT and have a MHSc Hons in psychotherapy. My earlier background was in teaching, and I came to psychotherapy with a desire and passion for understanding why so many of us struggle with issues such as relating effectively with others, or ourselves, or we have a belief system that interferes with our ability to be effective and happy in the world.
The privilege of sharing in the journeys of clients has made me passionate about this work, and confident about how effective it can be to have a quiet, confidential space, with a trained professional, to feel safe and heard. When people become despairing, or just overwhelmed with life difficulties and struggles, or feel stuck and unsatisfied in their lives or their relationships, I believe psychotherapy holds the key to using these situations as a catalyst for positive change. In many cases, psychotherapy can be as powerful as any ‘pill’ known to medicine in helping with problems related to anxiety, depression, work place stress, as well as relationship difficulties, trauma, abuse, loss and grief.
