Originally from Waimate in South Canterbury, I have extensive clinical experience over a period of 25 years within a variety of counselling and education institutions in both Australia and New Zealand. I currently work as a Clinical Counsellor across several schools in Dunedin, as well as a private practice located in central Dunedin. The experience of engaging in counselling is a deeply personal journey that affects all of us in different ways and sometimes in ways, we would never have expected. By us talking together through your concerns, counselling can help you to see solutions you didn’t know were there. It can also help you find ways to cope better and move on in your life. I understand and honour that each person’s story is unique in that we are all affected by life in different ways. I also understand the importance of being respectful of each person’s culture and beliefs systems. My clinical work is shaped by several different counselling modalities and frameworks, including Family Therapy, Couples Therapy, Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Enneagram work, Lifestage Transition Work
