I am a counsellor and family therapist and have been in private practice in Orewa and Warkworth for the past 23 years working with individuals, couples and families. I am particularly passionate about working with the challenges relationship brings. I work collaboratively with couples or individuals who want to make their relationships more lovingly connected. I help them discover new ways of communicating and relating to each other, develop a deeper awareness of themselves and their partner, and support their growth both individually and together. I provide a safe and reflective environment for couples to share their vulnerabilities and hurts so they can deepen their trust and intimacy on every level and therefore build stronger more fulfilling relationships. I work with a combination of approaches including the Developmental Model of Bader Pearson Couple Therapy and I also draw on The Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy to assist my clients and my practise. I undertake regular supervision, and continually invest in my professional development.
