Counselling that helps you look outside the square. Christine works with adults and youth, and Specialises in EFT for Couples (Emotionally Focused Therapy) and Art therapy. EFT is a model which has proven to be effective with a wide range of couples, including those affected by growing apart, parenting, infertility, affairs, addictions and depression, to name just a few. Christine assists couples to readily get to their key issues and needs, break vicious cycles, and develop a new pattern of relating based on a close connection. They can then respond to each-others needs in a free and trusting manner, allowing them to deal with old hurts and new challenges.
Counselling and art therapy - Christine is confidential, warm and engaging. She will listen carefully and assist you to explore your situation, and find your own path forward. She acknowledges the importance of culture and people's individuality. Able to access EAP or some other funding.
Training - An interactive engaging style together with 20yrs experience in the health sector, private sector, and community organisations make for a rich and enjoyable learning experience.
She is bound by the professional ethics of NZAC.
