Kia ora katoa. Welcome to our Bay Counselling and Therapy website.

TALKING THERAPY is about giving our clients attention and space to explore what’s not working well, and to consider options for moving forward. Research demonstrates that “talking therapy” can help us to make positive changes in our lives.

A little about me - I was born in Taranaki and grew up in the Eastern BOP and Tauranga Moana, leaving here to train first as a primary teacher and later as a psychologist. I returned to Tauranga when my children were young to be near family. I have been a Registered Psychologist for over 30 years working across many agencies with many age groups.
