I am a ‘mature’ (70yo) Pākehā man with a love for people, varied life experience and a genuine desire to walk alongside my clients as they deal with with difficult and sometimes painful issues in life, impacted by both their past and present experiences.

Although I use a variety of approaches, I have gravitated towards EFT – Emotionally Focused Therapy, a powerful way to work which helps clients understand the deeper emotions that often drive their thinking and acting. I am one of 22 Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT) certified therapists in New Zealand. EFT is a powerful approach for working with both couples and individuals, although I use it primarily with couples.

I also value working with clients for whom faith and spiritual beliefs and values are an important aspect of their life.
