My counselling training was at Waikato University. I have a Masters Degree in Counselling and continue to develop my practice through attending workshops with leading practitioners. My first counselling experience was working as a counsellor in schools with young people and their families. I have supervised other counsellors since 1996 and worked as a counsellor trainer at Unitec between 2000 and 2014. In 2002 I began working in private practice in Parnell as part of the Auckland Psychology group.
