Psychological Services and
Treatment for Adults in Tauranga

Welcome to a sanctuary of holistic wellness, healing, and growth where I provide psychological services for adults in the Mount Maunganui, Tauranga area. I offer specialized psychological treatment, guided by values of safety, connection, non-judgment, and compassion.


I am trained in a range of therapeutic modalities and using my authentic, intuitive, and compassionate approach, I work in a client-centred and eclectic way, meaning I choose what combination of therapy tools to use to best match each unique client I am working with.


My heart-led intention is to Connect and attune with my clients, helping them feel safe and understood, validated, seen, heard, felt, and supported in a compassionate and non-judgmental way. In this context, regulation and healing occurs.


Working from Durie’s Te Whare Tapa Whā model of health and wellbeing, I have an understanding and respect for the interconnectedness of the emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, social, and environmental aspects that impact on our overall health and wellbeing. I tailor my approach to promote overall wellness.

The talking therapy I do is mainly informed by:


Neuroscience and Neuropsychoanalysis

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

Compassionate Inquiry

Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)


Art Therapy


The bodywork I do is mainly informed by:


Nervous System Regulation, particularly Polyvagal Theory

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)

Sensory Integration

Body Alignment Therapy

Usui Reiki Energy Healing

Somatic Experiencing

EFT Tapping


Mindful Movement



During my Psychological Treatment sessions with adults, I will use talking therapy, and bodywork at times to facilitate Holistic Wellness. I work in culturally sensitive and trauma-informed way.


Our therapeutic sessions take place in the tranquil MindBody Connect Wellness Centre, a space thoughtfully designed to nourish the nervous system and bring peace.


At times, and for those who seek it, therapy can extend beyond walls. We have access to the pristine Mount Maunganui beach across the road from the Wellness Centre, so our Psychological Treatment sessions for adults can also take place at the beach or amidst the beauty of our garden, harnessing nature's soothing and healing energy.


I accept self-referrals, as well as referrals from GPs, Healthcare and Wellness Practitioners,
Te Whatu Ora (DHB), Ministry of Social Development, ACC, and other agencies and organisations. 


Carer Support funding can be used to fund therapy too. The client is responsible for paying MindBody Connect for the service and claiming back Carer Support funding support.

Please note, I do not work with clients that are suicidal or at risk to others, as well as clients with eating disorders or active substance abuse.
