My approach to therapy
I am excited by the possibility that therapy can foster hope, promote inner healing and enable a sense of enhanced well-being.
Big words which basically means that when life gets too much, or you’re concerned about your child, or a whanau member that you love, then therapy might be an option.
In therapy we explore the impact and meaning of emotions, thoughts, self talk and behaviours.
It gives me great joy to work from a solution focused perspective, where the focus is on strengths and resources to support new options and strategies. It is a huge privilege to see people grow and change by actively working towards better outcomes in their lives.
I hold a PhD in Educational Psychology and was a professor at the University of Pretoria before moving to New Zealand. I am a registered Psychologist with the NZ Board for Psychology, and have been practising since 2000.
