A little bit about me

I graduated from my masters degree in 2000 and went on to undertake further experiential learning before becoming a Registered Psychologist. I've worked as a psychologist for 15 years in England and Aotearoa New Zealand, with a range of client groups, and in community, residential and secure settings, and have been trained in a variety of psychological approaches.  


I work with professionals from different backgrounds providing inter-professional supervision. I support practitioners to develop high quality client services, while developing professional and reflective skills and maintaining their own wellbeing.


I provide Personal  Coaching Psychology with individuals to support them to work on their own goals, to identify and live by their values, to achieve psychological flourishing and to live rich, full and meaningful lives. I use the approach which best suits the individual, but my preferred approaches are ACC (Acceptance and Commitment Coaching).


I believe in life long learning, and regularly attend professional development training, workshops and read, to remain current in the areas I practise.  I am currently studying a Post Grad Diploma in Professional Supervision and regularly attend individual supervision and several peer supervision groups. 


Having moved to Aotearoa New Zealand in 2010 and moved around the country, I'm now happily settled with my husband and two miniature schnauzers in Tamaki Makaurau Auckland. I love taking our schnauzers for walks around parks and beaches, and will never get tired all the beautiful sights.
