I offer long and short term psychotherapy and counselling to individuals and couples seeking to change patterns of behaviour, thoughts and emotions which negatively influence their well-being.

Experience : I have practiced as a psychotherapist for twenty years. Alongside this I have taught trainee psychotherapists in the Auckland University of Technology psychotherapy Masters degree where I have held the positions of Associate Professor and Senior Lecturer. I also provide clinical and professional supervision.

Specialisms : I specialize in helping people with problems in getting on well in life. These include anxiety, stress, depression and relationship difficulties. I also work with couples in low-sex and no-sex relationships to help them overturn the myth that the sexual relationship naturally declines over time.

Approach : My approach is interpersonal psychotherapy with some cognitive behavioural techniques. This involves us working together to foster positive growth by addressing patterns that cause distress.

Professional Memberships : I am a registered Psychotherapist (PBANZ) and member of the New Zealand Association of Psychotherapists (NZAP).

Fee: Individuals: $140, Couples: $150.
