Kia ora. I am a counsellor working mainly with Deaf, hearing-impaired and disabled people. I am fluent in NZSL and am excited to be able to facilitate workshops for the Deaf community.
Kindness, caring and compassion are three values that guide my work as I walk alongside people experiencing distress or struggling with addiction.
I love the wellness model of Te Whare Tapa Whā which considers the whole person, their whānau and their community; to lead a balanced, satisfying life.
Kire, a Golden Collie, is my Hearing Assistance Dog and is also a Therapy Dog. She sometimes works with me to help people relax and smile again. We both enjoy trips in the car, walks on the beach and lazing in the sun.
