Your Life, Your Choice
I spent the first 10 years of my life growing up in sunny Nelson and love the lifestyle and the beauty of the area. In my twenties I eventually moved back here with my husband and family and settled in Tasman. I graduated in 2016, from Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Applied Social Science in Counselling. My roles during my studies included counselling students at NMIT who have had a multitude of issues, and being a support person at Postnatal Support for women who have experienced postnatal depression and anxiety. I work within the NZAC ethical framework, and I'm a provisional member.

EFFECTIVE COUNSELLING SERVICES
WHY CHOOSE COUNSELLING?
There are many reasons why you might want to come to counselling. You may need help identifying areas that are impacting on your day to day life, such as relationships, emotional issues, addressing personal resources and strengths. As well, a counsellor will help by exploring goals and building on these areas.
Counselling can be life changing, and can deal with many issues. This includes:
My goal is to work alongside individuals to develop self-awareness, to encourage self-efficacy, and to create and maintain life long changes.
