Couples Counselling Whangarei

I'm currently unavailable.
Please contact another counsellor on this website.

I am passionate about mental and emotional health. 


It is such a privileged to help couples move away from disconnection, distress and a sense of hopelessness and guide them to connect with each other in a more intimate, loving, safe and respectful way.

I have over 35 years experience in the mental health sector.  Previously as a registered psychiatric nurse and in 2000 I retrained as a counsellor gaining qualifications in couple, individual and family therapy. 

I have been counselling in private practice most of my career and have studied numerous modalities and attended untold courses. Forever learning and gaining skills for my kete. My main focus is now working with couples and supervision to other counsellors and health professionals.

I have extensive experience working with a range of relationship issues;  communication,  affairs, pornography, trauma, abuse, anger, grief, addictions and depression.


My office is located at 168 Kamo road. Walker crescent entrance. Whangarei .



 Relationship therapy

I prefer to start with a commitment to having 4 initial sessions. (The first session together, one individual session each and then one together) After the 4 sessions you will begin to understand where you are getting stuck and begin to interupt that pattern. This is essential to create a sense of safety and to gain an understanding of how emotion is processed. 


When relationships fail, it is not increasing conflict that is the cause. It is decreasing affection and emotional responsiveness. If you are feeling this disconnection, I urge you to seek counselling sooner rather than later.


My therapy modality is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). The vast majority of couples (around 75%) experience significant improvement in their relationship when the therapist is using this evidence based model. I love it!



Contact me today. I offer caring, non judgemental and confidential counselling.
