Kia Ora,  If you have any cultural or spiritual needs, or feel I might not understand something important to you, please talk to me.  I'm open to learning about you.

Attending and benefiting from sessions is easy, either on line or in person.  Sessions can take place at my therapy space or at your home or workplace.

Don't be shy about asking if you have a specific need, even if it's not what you're seeing me for.  Let me know your needs and we'll come up with a solution to enable you to benefit fully.

Functional Lives therapy space is wheelchair accessible.  Accessible toilets are a short drive away.

I'm a qualified Occupational Therapist.  I offer a 10% discount to anyone registered disabled.


Everyone has the right to be heard and helped.

I welcome working with and learning from, those whose background, culture, physical presence, life experiences and choices are different to my own.

You are welcome to have support or family members with you during sessions.

Apologies to non-English speakers but contact sessions need to be in English due to my limitation in languages.

I have a foundation Certificate in Cultural Competency and a degree in Sociology and Development Studies.
