About me

Hi there, I'm a down-to-earth Kiwi and a qualified therapist. Our time is your time, and I'm dedicated to supporting you in finding your unique way forward.

Therapy offers a private and confidential space where you can talk about absolutely anything and express your emotions in your own way. There is and never will be any judgment from me. I'll engage compassionately, collaboratively, and always with your best interests in mind. Together, we can get to the source of what's going on for you - bringing light to darkness and a clearer view of the road ahead.  

I support individuals through a diverse range of difficulties and have trained in a range of therapeutic models so I can tailor sessions to you. These include Person-Centred, Solution-Focused, Cognitive Behavioural, Narrative, Psychodynamic, Systemic, and Attachment Therapy.

I work solely via technology and receive regular feedback that I’m friendly, easy to talk to, and calming. I offer a relaxed and confidential environment and work holistically by attending to the mind-body connection. I hold extensive hours supporting people through anxiety, depression, low self-confidence, and low self-esteem. Alongside being a therapist, I'm a busy mum, travel lover, and avid learner with a decent sense of NZ humour. 

Why don't we have a free confidential 15-minute, no-obligation/pressure informal chat to discuss your therapy needs and see if we might be a good fit? I highly recommend this, as naturally, therapy explores deeply personal material and I feel it's important to reach out to a range of professionals so you can find the one you feel you can connect with. Alternatively, you're more than welcome to check out my website and email me if you have any questions.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
