About me 

I was born in Putaruru in 1961. On leaving school I worked in the Bank of New Zealand in Tirau for three years. I then embarked on my O.E which I planned to be for six months, and it ended up being 10 years. I enjoyed travelling Europe and the Middle East - spending four months on a Moshav in Israel as an agricultural worker.


Whilst based in London I trained as a Physiotherapist, following working there for 2 years I returned to take up a position at Tauranga Hospital (where I worked for 15 years in a variety of areas, which included specialising in rehabilitation).


I have since been to Faith Bible College for two years, completing a Diploma in Christian Ministry, I then went on to study a Bachelor Degree in Counselling.


I live rurally with my husband and a variety of animals, namely 3 cats - Rosie, Lu and Sam, a rambunscious puppy called Coco and 10 cows! I enjoy hanging out with friends. I love walks and a good coffee.


I am committed to professional development and attend on-going training regularly to keep updated with counselling practice. 


I'm a full Member of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors.
