ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

Registered with NZAC - Dip Counselling

 

Kia ora.  I am a Wellbeing Counsellor who provides face to face counselling services by appointment at my rooms in Rolleston.  I use a person-centred approach as the foundation of my counselling.

 

person-centred approach is where the person is placed at the centre of the service and treated as a person first. The focus is on the person and what they can do, not their condition or disability.

 

Support should focus on achieving a person's aspirations and be tailored to their needs and unique circumstances.    

My specialist areas include working with individuals, adults and teens experiencing challenges relating to Grief, Anxiety, Depression, Gender, Sexuality, Parenting, Crisis Intervention and Life Transitions.  My aim is to build a positive therapeutic relationship with each client and provide a safe, nurturing space that encourages a sense of trust and rapport.   ​

Apart from five years of OE in the 90’s I have lived throughout Canterbury for the majority of my life. I now live in the Selwyn district with my husband. I am the mother of two adult daughters who live independently, with their cats. 

 

Arriving home means I am energetically welcomed by my dog Boston, who loves going for rides in the car, walks and visiting the neighbour.

MY EXPERIENCE

Prior to qualifying as a counsellor, I worked for twenty years as a staff supporter for an Employee Assistance Provider, where I supported people experiencing many of life’s challenges. I have a sound background of working in the mental health care industry.

 

Being strongly connected in the community and a social services professional, I come with a Diploma in Counselling from ARA. (Was CPIT).
