Hi I am Debbie. I have been working as a therapist in various mental health settings since 2006. I trained and worked the first 10 years of my career in South Africa after which I immigrated to and worked here in NZ from 2015.

I  find it especially rewarding working with individuals that are going through or have just been through major change in their lives. My approach to therapy is anchored in putting the person I am working with at the centre of the process. We will focus on what is going on for you at the time and always at the pace that you are ready for. Visiting me at my practice you will find a space where you can feel safe, comfortable, and you will always be welcome to just be yourself.
