Counselling Palmerston North


Counselling is a way of gaining a greater understanding of how you are affected by issues relating to your circumstances. Through counselling you can explore your options and be supported to  make your own choices. 


I offer a safe confidential, non - judgemental environment that enables you to explore your current situation with a view to considering what changes you might like to make to move in a direction determined by you.



Individual Counselling

The modalities I utilise when working with individuals include but not limited to person centred, emotionally focused individual therapy, narrative, strength and solution focused therapy. The approach is determined by what is most useful for the person attending and the concern/s they present with.


Relationship Counselling
Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) is the modality I work within when working with couples. This is a researched based therapy that has demonstrated significantly positive results for people engaged in this model of therapy. For further information please click on the link below.
I am a member of ICEEFT and NZCEFT



About me

Just a little about me
I was born in England and emigrated with my family from the UK in 2005. I live and work in Palmerston North enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. Part of looking after me is to take the opportunity to enjoy the beauty around me from leisurely walks along the river or strolling along local beaches, to travelling a bit further afield. My family play a big part in my life and this has some bearing on my passion for relationships.



I have been a Registered Nurse for over 30 years working in the U.K. and New Zealand  


I have held a Certificate in Counselling Skills for 20 years and completed the Graduate Diploma in Counselling Practice in 2015.


I'm MNZAC Registered with New Zealand Association of Counsellors.


Within the services I provide, I am committed to the clients I work with, providing a calm environment in a quiet residential area.
