Counselling Tauranga

In life we can all have times that are more challenging and painful than others and counselling can provide a safe space to work through those seasons.


I am a counsellor who is committed to providing that safe and confidential environment where people can feel heard and validated while working through their pain and struggles without judgement.


I am also passionate about helping people be the best version of themselves and overcoming any obstacles that may stand in the way of that. I also consider it an honour to walk alongside people and help them find answers and direction for themselves and their lives.

Areas of Work:

  • Addiction recovery support
  • Anger management
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Burnout, stress and trauma

  • Eating disorders and body image
  • Family harm and sexual abuse
  • Loss, bereavement and grief
  • Mental and emotional distress

  • Personal growth and development
  • Relationship issues
  • Self-esteem and self-worth
  • Women’s health and wellbeing



About Me

I am originally from Wellington but moved to the beautiful Bay of Plenty about 20 years ago. I am married to my husband of 21 years and have one son and three grandchildren.


As well as raising my son, I have had a varied career in management and sales before pursuing my lifelong dream of becoming a counsellor.


I enjoy reading good books, watching movies, keeping active, spending time with friends and family, eating out and walking in nature.
