I am registered with the New Zealand Association of Counsellors, and am a full member of NZAC (MNZAC).

In addition to a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in psychology, I have a Masters of Counselling (with First Class Honours)*.

I also have training in art therapies: Interactive Drawing Therapy, and Sandplay Therapy.

I hold a post-graduate certificate in counselling supervision (PGCertCouns [Supervision]). This is an advanced practitioner qualification.

* My Masters thesis focused on the role of practitioner peer groups in providing a forum for the performance and authentication of student counsellors' professional identities and knowledges.
