Areas of Special Interest
Psychotherapy helps to understand who we are deep down, how our life experiences have affected and shaped us and how this sometimes leads to self-defeating and harmful behaviours, a lot of which happens unconsciously. These can manifest as stress, anxiety, depression or feeling overwhelmed, making life challenging.
I provide a caring, empathic and non-judgmental space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings and beliefs. Talk therapy helps identify what gets in the way of a content and fulfilling life.
Benefits of therapy include:
Registrations and Professional Memberships
I have been a body therapist for 20 years, working with people who live with chronic pain. My interest in psychotherapy began because the mind and body are inseparable, and pain is felt emotionally, mentally, and physically.
As a psychotherapist, I work holistically to understand who you are as a person and what your goals and needs are. Together, through the relationship we build in therapy, you can learn to understand the deeper aspects of yourself, and the unconscious triggers and defences that were used to cope and keep yourself safe through childhood and adolescence but are no longer working as an adult.
I was born in Aotearoa New Zealand but have travelled widely and lived in several parts of the world therefore have an awareness of how cultures differ in worldviews. I welcome working with people of all cultures finding a collaborative approach that understands that there are similarities and differences in each of us.
As a mature adult, I apply my life experiences and skills to help understand issues that others are going through. My previous work experience includes working with people with complex mental health issues at the AIH Psychotherapy clinic and with groups and individuals at Segar House, a public mental health specialist service.
