About me

Hi - I support individuals through a range of difficulties and primarily spend time with people who are suffering from depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and self-confidence. I also work with individuals who have been affected by a cancer diagnosis.

I'm a down to earth kiwi and a qualified person-centred therapist who offers a private and confidential therapy service via technology. I encompass a holistic approach by acknowledging the mind, brain, body connection and always strive to provide an environment where I hope that you can share those parts of your world that have brought you to this website.

Together, we will establish strong therapy goals to provide direction and ensure you are getting the most out of your time. We will also explore what is going on for you, work together to navigate through this/these so that you can decide your best way forward.

Here's just a few examples of what therapy can support you with: 

  • enhancing emotional wellbeing
  • supporting personal development and self-agency
  • developing a 'tool kit' to help manage life's demands
  • building a 'wellbeing kit' to reduce or manage any physical presentations of anxiety (for example)

If you want to find out more about me and the way that I work you can check out my website or drop me an email or text so we can arrange a convenient time for a chat. It's really important that you find a therapist that you feel you can connect with and in response to this, I offer a free 15min (no obligation) chat to discuss your therapeutic needs. This supports us in seeing if we feel like we'd be a good fit to work towards your therapeutic goals. 

Training, qualifications & experience

Alongside private practice, I volunteer for a local charity and work with a range of organisations to support people's emotional wellbeing.

Having trained in NZ, I studied in England to meet UK requirements. I am currently undertaking a BA (Hons) in Counselling Solutions and have already acquired the following qualifications:

  • Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Online & Telephone Counselling Certificate (80 Hours CPD)
  • Certificate in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Certificate in Person-Centred Counselling

Member organisations

BACP

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.
