Counselling in Queenstown


Anxiety is a normal stress response and we all experience this from time to time. However, when the symptoms such as persistent fear and worry, rapid breathing, sweating and panic attacks begin interfering with daily life then it's time to act. We can explore your anxious thoughts & feelings and find strategies to help you cope so that you can begin to respond differently.


Depression is characterised by a group of symptoms such as sadness, changes in sleep patterns, loss of appetite and motivation and a mood that is persistently low. Along with this can be a feeling of helplessness and thoughts of suicide. Counselling can help to build awareness around the underlying issues of depression along with looking into changes that can be made so you feel as though you are back in control.


Some stress in life is normal and a little stress is ok however too much stress can result in feeling overwhelmed, tired and can wear you down mentally and emotionally. It can also lead to other health complications. Counselling assists by helping you to identify and recognise your stress symptoms and triggers and looking at new ways of coping in stressful times.

I offer a safe and confidential space to explore your situation and the impacts on your life and wellbeing.
