Trainee in Person Centered Counselling

I am originally from Invercargill and have been living in Christchurch for 10 years. My husband and I love this beautiful city, and have recently purchased our first home so we are here to stay.

I am currently studying counselling at Laidlaw College. The counsellor training at Laidlaw has its foundations in the person-centered modality as well as incorporating a narrative approach. As a counsellor my hopes are to create a safe space, where a therapeutic relationship can be formed through trust, being authentic, and meeting my clients where they are at.

My previous training is in Graphic Design, which is more similar to counselling than some expect. Everyone is unique and different; I love to come alongside people, communicate authentically and without judgement, to support them to achieve their greatest outcomes.
