I am currently a counsellor working with youth in intermediate and high schools in Hamilton and Cambridge in the Waikato Region. I am a teacher with over 10 years experience and have worked in New Zealand and the United Kingdom in a variety of educational settings with youth in my professional career. I became a counsellor because of the fascination I have with human behaviour and the interest to understand people - why we do what we do and why we are how we are. I work mostly from a holistic perspective and utilise the ideas, tools and techniques of Narrative and Person Centered Therapy in addition to Transactional Analysis. I have a strong interest in self-development and support young people and adults in shifting their perspectives, attitudes and mind set so they can communicate more effectively in order to live their best lives.
