I offer a wide variety of counselling including individual, couple, and family counselling. Additional specialty areas are: working with adolescents, men, and those who struggle with addiction. My private rate is $120 per 50 minute session. I work closely with a team of qualified counsellors to offer you choices to suit your individual, group, or staff needs. Training and group workshops are also available. All types of enquiries are welcome.  

Some areas of expertise I have worked in are residential adolescent care, working in schools, and addiction work.

I am currently employed part-time as the counselling coordinator by The Male Room in Nelson. The Male Room is a welfare agency that deals with men and whānau in distress.

I believe that anyone who has any motivation to attend counselling wants to CHANGE; they may not know exactly what needs changing, or how to make the change but they do want something to be different. My role is to help them identify what they want to change and assist them to prioritise realistic ways of making that change.
