I have held a Certificate in Counselling Skills for over 20 years and have incorporated this learning into my nursing practice over the years.

In 2015, I completed a Graduate Diploma in Counselling Practice. I’m MNZAC Registered with New Zealand Association of Counsellors.

I am committed to working with people in a way that is meaningful to them and continue to engage in professional development to enhance my practice. Also, to this end I provide a calm supportive environment in a quiet residential area.
