I live and work in Lower Hutt, near Wellington, New Zealand. I trained as a Bioenergetic Psychotherapist in the 1990’s. Since then I have worked in private practice, in an eating disorder treatment service, with parents of infants and young children and as an at-home mother.
I currently work in private practice. I am particularly interested in early attachment patterns, loss and grief, depression, stress, anxiety, eating and body image and issues that arise for parents in their interactions with their children.
I am a Certified Bioenergetic Therapist and have a Certificate in Counselling, a Postgraduate Certificate in Eating Disorders and a Master of Infant Mental Health degree. I am a member of the New Zealand Society for Bioenergetic Analysis, the International Institute of Bioenergetic Analysis, the New Zealand Association of Psychotherapists, and am a registered psychotherapist with the Psychotherapists’ Registration Board of Aotearoa New Zealand.
