About me

I have been working in mental health and addictions, domestic violence, family and sexual harm, counselling and professional supervision since 2010.

Qualifications: Certificate in Supervision (Unitec), Toi Paematua Raranga (TWoA), Bachelor of Arts (Massey), Bachelor of Māori Art (TWoA), Graduate Certificate Addictions (AUT), Postgraduate Diploma of Education (Massey), Master of Counselling (Massey), PhD Candidate (UoA).

Why counselling?

Counselling is a non-judgemental and supportive process where we can come up with ideas to help manage whatever problem you are facing.

I have experience with attachment problems, grief and loss, stress, workplace bullying, pregnancy loss (including miscarriage and abortion), parenting issues, depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, family violence, sexual abuse and sexual assault.

What does it cost?

There are ways that your counselling may be free.

I provide ACC-funded therapy and Supported Assessments to people who have experienced sexual abuse or assault. I provide counselling through the Primary Mental Health (PHO) programme at Health Hawkes Bay (by GP referral), and EAP providers Benestar and Vitae.

If you don’t fit the criteria above, or wish to access counselling privately, my fee is $120 an hour (GST incl). If you are not sure if you are eligible for funding, please contact me on 021305532 for more information.

If you ring me and I am not able to answer please leave a message and I will get back to you within 24 hours. Everything we talk about is confidential. No one else can access my phone messages or email.

Where is the office?

My office is at 434 Heretaunga St West, Hastings (between ‘The Roast Shop’ and ‘Mana Elite Bikram Yoga’ studio, two doors down from ‘Bin Inn’, roughly opposite ‘Carls Jnr’). Parking outside on the street is $2/hour, or you can park for free across the road (in front of Big Save furniture).

Clinical supervision

I have experience supporting counsellors, addiction practitioners, and social workers develop the skills, ability, and awareness to work effectively with people. Supervision is strictly non-judgemental and non-critical space to discuss your practice.

My fee for supervision is $140 an hour (GST incl). Please contact me for more information.

“Reclaiming our power, healing ourselves, loving ourselves, knowing ourselves – these ideas are becoming more and more common, why? Because they are the pathways to our own freedom and happiness.” – Yung Peublo

“Whenever people are abused, they do many things to oppose the abuse and to keep their dignity and their self-respect. This is called resistance. The resistance might include not doing what the perpetrator wants them to do, standing up against, and trying to stop or prevent violence, disrespect, or oppression. Imagining a better life may also be a way that victims resist abuse.” – Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter

“The most intense conflicts, if overcome, leave behind a sense of security and calm that is not easily disturbed.”  – Carl Gustav Jung
