What issues can you help with?

I can help with various concerns. The most common are:

  • depression;
  • anxiety;
  • relationship difficulties;
  • ACC claims (for sexual abuse/assault or a physical injury);
  • self-harm and/or suicidal behaviour;
  • alcohol and other drug use;
  • an assessment for autism spectrum disorder; and
  • an assessment for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
Do you work with children/young people?

Yes.  I can provide therapy for children/young people.  When working with children/young people, it is preferable that their parent/caregiver is included in the process.

Can we have a telehealth session?

Yes, I can provide telehealth sessions (a therapy session conducted by phone or videoconference).  For some people, this is their preference as it provides flexibility with their schedule and removes the need to travel.

How long/often are therapy sessions?

Sessions are approximately 50 minutes, once per week.  For children/young people, the session may be shorter, depending on their needs.

What is the cost per session?

If you access therapy through an ACC, there is no cost (as it is funded by ACC).  For private clients, the cost per session is $200 (including GST).

Can I bring my child/ren?

Therapy is time to focus on your needs and having dependents in the room can be a distraction.  However, if there are times when it is difficult to arrange childcare, please discuss this with me.  We may be able to accommodate your child/children or have a telehealth session.

How do I cancel my session?

If you need to cancel/reschedule a session, please notify me as soon as possible (via a text message, phone call, or email).

For clients accessing therapy through an ACC sensitive claim, ACC have requested that the file be closed if you do not attend four consecutive sessions

What do I do if I want to stop my therapy?

People decide to stop therapy for a variety of reasons, such as the issue being resolved, a lack of time to attend appointments, the cost of sessions, or as they are not comfortable with their counsellor.  If you wish to stop therapy, please discuss this with me so I can ensure that you have a suitable plan in place, should you wish to re-engage in therapy later.

Where are you located?

I am based at 173 Main Road, Tawa.  There is free 60-minute carparking on the street and I am within walking distance to the Tawa train station and bus stops (located at 215 and 206 Main Road, Tawa).


While a face mask is no longer required during your therapy session/assessment, you are welcome to wear a face mask.

If you have recently tested positive for COVID-19, your session/assessment can be rescheduled or held via Telehealth.
