I like to use modern, user friendly and time effective approaches for helping people transform their lives.
I see people with stress and burnout, anxiety and depression, relationship trouble including couples, personal development, rebuilding life after sexual abuse, recovery from alcohol and other addictions, eating disorders, physical illness, including cancer, chronic fatigue and pain syndromes like fibromyalgia.
I have explored far and wide within the counselling and psychotherapy field, and been most drawn to the more modern approaches which I find warm, friendly, open and affirming. They focus upon working with peoples’ strengths, to find the best way they can resolve current difficulties, and to help them move forward in their lives.
I worked as a rural GP for some years, before making the transition from medicine to counselling and psychotherapy. I am married with four children who are now young adults. Active interests are summertime sailing and tramping.
The fee for one hour sessions is $150 for individuals and $180 for couples. I usually have spaces to see new people within a couple of weeks. People can claim on their medical insurance, if their policy covers GP visits. I am registered with ACC for people with sensitive claims.
