Auckland Counselling Counsellor  Therapy Therapist Ponsonby Real Life Counselling
Professional and Experienced Counselling and Therapy in Ponsonby, Auckland

My Practice Experience

I am a qualified Psychosynthesis Counsellor and a member of NZAC. I have been in private practice for the past 10 years. I am a registered Social Worker, currently practicing part-time for a District Health Board, and a member of ANZASW.

I work with individuals, couples, and adolescents, and provide a confidential service following the code of ethics of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors and Aotearoa New Zealand Association of Social Workers.

I have experience in working with a wide range of emotional challenges including depression, anxiety and relationship difficulties and other general real life issues.

I am very passionate about assisting clients to overcome their difficulties. 

The reason I decided on the name Real Life Counselling is because in life "stuff" happens - marriage, divorce, children, miscarriage, illness, death, and many other events along the way.

Real life counselling is working through the issues in life that can affect us all. 

Real life isn't straight forward, and I work in an empathic and collaborative way providing a safe and supportive environment where you can work through difficulties to live to your full potential.
