I'm an experienced and professional counsellor working with individual clients and couples in Central Wellington.
Counselling is your opportunity to talk to a professional who can help you to make sense of what is going on in your life. In counselling I will explore with you any fears and anxieties, losses, patterns of behaviour, communication difficulties, relationship problems, childhood hurts or experiences and any other areas that may be getting in the way of you living fully.
I see each person or couple as being distressed in some way by the loss or potential loss of something very important to them – this may be the loss of hope, of self, of a relationship, of another person, health, way of life or the death of someone close to them. I use different approaches depending on what I sense will work best with you.
The theories I have integrated into my way of working include Client Centred, Cognitive-Behavioural, Attachment and Imago Couples Therapy.
I trained in and have been practicing as an Imago Couples Therapist for eight years. In Imago counselling you and your partner will be given information and help to make sense of your experience, and to see that in the midst of your struggles, your relationship can grow. Some couples achieve what they want within five or six sessions. Others take longer.
I am a proud Wellingtonian and have lived here for most of life apart from time spent travelling in Asia and Europe in my 20's and 3 1/2 years living in Sweden.
I have three wonderful adult children who I enjoy spending time with. I believe in living as fully as possible and strive to keep a good balance between the different areas of my life.
