I am a fully-qualified registered counsellor based in New Zealand (Christchurch, Rolleston, and online). I have 11 years of full-time private practice experience. My counselling style is warm, interactive, exploratory, and methodical.
My main areas of specialty are: Creative and performance industries, Existential concerns (the search for meaning, purpose, or direction); Depression and anxiety; Relationship problems; Gay, lesbian, and bisexual concerns; Transgender and gender identity issues, including detransition; Intimacy and sexuality; Spirituality; Jungian, transpersonal, and depth psychology.
My work is fundamentally rooted in the idea of “client-centred practice”, reflecting the philosophy that you are essentially the expert in your own life. I also integrates other modalities as well, depending upon my clients’ needs. Drawing from a number of therapeutic approaches, he also works within existential, solution-based, narrative, psychodynamic, Jungian, transpersonal, and cognitive-behavioural (CBT/DBT/ACT) methods.
