Masters in Counselling, USA
I have 22 years+ working primarily with adolescents and adults, but also work with children 8-12 years old. I have a vast amount of experience working with eating disorders. My practice also includes a lot of work with trauma, ACC Sensitive Claims, Depression, Anxiety and Anger management. My modalities are varied and I am competent to work with many counselling and psycho-therapeutic techniques. As over the years I have been trained in multiple modalities and ways of working. I work eclectically: "What works for one person may not work for another". Therefore, I try to gauge the therapy to what best fits the client that I am assisting. Common modalities utilized in my practice include: ACFED Eating Disorder Training, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectic Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Interactive Drawing Therapy, Art therapy, play therapy, Psycho-Education, Transactional Analysis, John Brierre Trauma model techniques, Massey University Guidelines for working with sexual abuse, Te Whare Tapa Wha, Solution Focused Therapy, Person center focus and Impact Therapy.
