If you are seeking psychotherapy it may be that you want to look more deeply into what gives you a sense of meaning and purpose. It may be that what you have known about living to this point can take you no further. Perhaps you are experiencing difficult emotions and seek relief or maybe it is time to confront the shadows that seemed best avoided until now.

Life is a varied and colourful journey but not all the colours are bright. My work as a psychotherapist is about this journey.

Approaches and modalities: My practice as a counsellor and psychotherapist has its roots in a number of different traditions including Psychodrama, Jungian psychology and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. In long-term psychotherapy, you can hope to become clearer and stronger in your sense of who you are and to develop ways to live that feel congruent, creative and potent.

I am a Psychodramatist - Trainer Educator Practitioner. Having trained group psychotherapists with the Auckland Training Centre for Psychodrama since 2014, I also offer psychotherapy supervision.

Areas of interest:

  • relationship issues, couples work
  • depression, anxiety, stress
  • sexual & intimacy issues (alternative lifestyles welcome)
  • trauma and abuse
  • grief and loss
  • religious or spiritual issues
  • personal development
  • life transitions

Experience: I worked for 12 years of my professional life as a facilitator, mediator and organisational consultant. In this context I consulted to a wide range of organisations, from corporate to governmental and not-for-profit in New Zealand, Australia and further abroad. Over time I became more and more interested in the deep forces at work within and between people that cause creative life-enhancing outcomes in groups or block this. I have been working as a psychotherapist in private practice with Individuals, Couples and Groups since 2002.

Location: Te Atatu Peninsula daytime appointments available. Plentiful parking.
