A bit about me

I've been working with children, young people and their families for over 23 years, as both a teacher and a counsellor.

I have two teenage daughters of my own and I know how hard it can be to navigate your own responses to your child when you don't know how to help them!

I have talked on RadioNZ, written publications for newspapers and magazines and presented at international and national conferences on topics including anxiety, perfectionism, mindfulness and self compassion, technology and the impact of pornography on adolescents.

All of these are aimed at parents and educators to put in place tools and supports to create emotionally healthy young people.

I'd love to help your family be awesome again!

warmest wishes,


How I work

Contact me for a free 15 minute consultation

I'm here to help you - that means I will give you the best and most useful anxiety and parenting information there is.

My work is 100% confidential, respectful and informed by the most up to date anxiety busters.

Acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness, self compassion, somatic body therapy, narrative therapy and more.

There's nothing you won't have access to in order to help you to help your child. 

warmest wishes,
