Psychotherapy Services

Clinical Supervision

 With over 30 years clinical experience as a psychotherapist and 20 years as a supervisor I enjoy working with psychotherapists as their clinical supervisor.

My training

I trained as a psychotherapist at AIT, Auckland, and later returned (AUT) to gain a Post Grad Certificate in Clinical Supervision. I am a senior practitioner with an Advanced Practice Certificate from my professional body NZAP.

The 4 strands that weave through my work are Interpersonal Psychodynamic, Psychoanalysis, Integrative Gestalt and Body-Mind therapy. My clients have taught me that the unconscious is in the body and that the royal road to that is your dreams, fantasies, symptoms and creative lives. I have specialised in treating over and under felt emotions with great success.

Therapy, beyond relieving suffering, becomes a spiritual pursuit of mindfulness and balance.
