If you could free yourself from everything holding you back from living an incredible life – all of your fears, stinkin’ thinking, limiting beliefs, negative emotions – you know you’d instantly feel happier, healthier and freer. The solution is very simple. Whether you have lost your job or hate the one you have, your relationship has hit a rough patch, or you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction or any other issues are impacting your life, talking to an impartial professional, qualified holistic psychologist, counselor, and life coach can help.

I  offer a range of life and career rescue remedies, including:

  • Quantum Transformational Coaching (QTC) to rapidly breakthrough limiting beliefs, sabotaging thoughts, subconscious blocks, and outdated scripts that are holding you back.
  • Career Counselling to help resolve career-related issues such as stress, role-conflict, job loss, self-employment coaching, dissatisfaction, and career reinvention.
  • Personal Counselling to provide early, solutions-focused intervention before problems escalate. A holistic approach to resolving many non-work issues including relationships, finances, physical and emotional well-being stress, grief, conflict, depression, lack of self-esteem, substance abuse…and more.
  • Life coaching to provide help people who don’t need in-depth counseling.  You don’t need to have a problem to seek the services of a life coach, although some people do. More often than not people are just feeling stuck and need someone objective and supportive to spur them on. Life coaching is solutions-focused, and rather than dwell on the past, focuses on where a person is now, where they want to be and the steps and changes necessary to get them there.

Live and work with purpose, peace, and passion no matter where you are in New Zealand or the world. We can help you reach your potential by meeting in-person,  phone, skype or by e-mail.


My philosophy

I favor a truly holistic approach. Drawing on over twenty years as a holistic psychologist and wellness practitioner, you’ll benefit from a  range of cognitive and holistic strategies to help you thrive in the face of setbacks, including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Interactive Drawing Therapy, Solutions Focused, Appreciative Enquiry, Rogerian (feeling based therapy), Choice Therapy  and Positive Psychology techniques to name just a few.


Points of Difference

I use creative, innovative and customized solutions to meet clients’ needs. I don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach. My techniques resources and solutions are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure best-practice solutions.

Professional Expertise and “Walking The Talk”
My wisdom comes from both life experience and schooling. I am professionally qualified and “walk the talk.” I have survived and thrived in the face of issues common to many of our clients. You’ll benefit by being offered shortcuts to learning by sharing the wisdom I have gained on the way as I picked myself up and started again. This gives me a unique perspective and incredible empathy and insight when it comes to helping others.

Passionate and values-driven
I am passionate about helping others thrive in the face of setbacks. I love what I do and I do it well!

Holistic and Spiritual
I believe the best solutions integrate mind, body, and soul. Whichever way you define spirituality you’ll benefit from tailored approaches that feed and nourish and empower your spirit.
