Relationship Counselling Wellington



Currently unavailable

Please contact another counsellor on this website.




I'm an experienced and professional relationship counsellor working with individual clients and couples in Central Wellington. I am experienced in working with couples on a wide range of issues, including: cheating, divorce, family problems, intimacy issues, marriage problems, relationship anxiety, relationship fights.



I will help you and your partner

When we fall in love it can be an amazing experience, and we usually think it will last forever. The world seems a wonderful place, we feel fully alive and connected with our partner and excited and hopeful about the future.


All too soon these wonderful feelings disappear, and we end up disappointed, frustrated and in conflict. We no longer feel loved and safe. Frustration and conflict can sap our energy, and we can find ourselves unable to communicate.


In Imago couples counselling I will help you and your partner to make sense of your experience. In the midst of your struggles your relationship can grow.


I will provide tools to enable you to move from conflict and disconnection back into understanding and connection. The issues you come with will be addressed using structured dialogue.



Imago Couples counselling

I trained in and have been  practicing as an Imago Couples Therapist for eight years. In Imago relationship counselling you and your partner will be given information and help to make sense of your experience, and to see that in the midst of your struggles, your relationship can grow.  


I acknowledge and affirm the differences between the two people in the room. My role is to facilitate a very clear process of dialogue between you. Couples have an immediate experience of being listened to.


There is a focus on affirmation and thanks. Each of you has the opportunity to fully express your concerns, feelings and what you would like to be different without being interrupted.


There is a very clear process in the form of a dialogue when each person knows what is going to happen next. This is transferable to outside the counselling room. 


Some couples achieve what they want within five or six sessions. Others take longer.
