I am a Registered Psychotherapist (PBANZ #630), a Certified Psychodramatist and TEPit with AANZPA and its current President, and a full member of NZAP. I offer short-term and long-term counselling and psychotherapy for both general life issues and concerns and for more specialist problem areas.
Sometimes we all need the space to take time out to reflect on what’s going on with us; or to talk to someone outside our immediate family and friends, a trained experienced professional, who can assist us to think and feel deeper into our life, work and relationships.
As we do this we begin to feel more human, more in balance and more able to warm up to our own spontaneity, vitality, flexibility, originality and creativity in response to what is required- be it coming to some resolutions, developing or strengthening aspects of ourselves, accepting and letting go of old habits that are no longer helpful, moving forward, and ‘leaning into’ our lives in a more dynamic or committed way.
Therapy assists in clarifying the underlying needs, wishes, and values through which we live our lives. Speaking in confidence and finding one’s own way to notice and express our experience to a sensitive and trained other usually results in a widening of our perspective and beginning to experience new understandings and insights into ourselves. We begin to feel more at ease, integrated and more alive in our own skin. This is often experienced as greater freedom to be yourself.
