Job Title: Caseworker/ Counsellor

I value individual difference, honesty, integrity, finding your own path, standing out from the crowd, connection and relationships.  I strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers and start their journey to self-discovery.

As a registered Counsellor with NZAC, I can offer a range of different approaches and techniques for a therapeutic relationship that helps create a way of working that fits best with the unique needs and desires of each individual.

For me, counselling is a space where I welcome people into a safe, accepting and culturally respectful environment where they can feel comfortable sharing personal stories about themselves.  I want to offer people trust, respect, empathy, warmth, congruence, unconditional positive regard, support, guidance and a safe and confidential place.

In my spare time I enjoy art/drawing and going to the gym.
