My view of a person as a creative, complex and interconnected whole, expressed in body, mind and spirit, alongside a strong relational orientation, provides an overarching frame to my integrative practice and philosophy. I believe that every person brings their unique ways of relating to themselves and others into the therapy room. I also believe that the work of psychotherapy is to bring these core patterns and ways of being into the light of day, so that you may make the real, tangible and long-lasting changes you wish to make in your life. The quality of the therapy relationship is directly related to successful outcomes and this philosophy is central to my work. My work is also influenced by existential approaches and I believe that we humans strive to live lives of purpose and meaning, however each person defines that.

I trained in the psychodrama method at the Auckland Training Centre for Psychodrama from 1998 to 2004. Concurrent with this, I undertook my initial diploma training, which had a person-centred orientation, between 2000 and 2005 at the Human Development and Training Institute in Auckland, Aotearoa/New Zealand. I have continued to develop my practice through the years incorporating psychodynamic, existential and body-based perspectives. I am a Certified Brainspotting Practitioner. I completed my Diploma in Creative Approaches to Supervision in 2022 with the London Centre for Psychodrama.
