  • Relationship challenges

Heart drawn in the sand


I’m passionate about working with couples who want to recover or deepen their intimacy and find joy in being together.

Depression affects each person slightly differently and can often have long term implications.

It’s normal to feel some worry or anxiety in our lives, however, it can spiral out of control.

Small tower of smooth stones


Free yourself from past hurts and constraints, and live your life in the way that’s most important to you.

I am located in Ponsonby, Auckland but I also offer online counselling throughout New Zealand.

Rodger steadily took me on a journey to rebuild myself step by step. I have broken free and can now see a bright and happy future being safe and secure within myself.
