I am a qualified Psychosynthesis Counsellor and a registered Psychosynthesis Psychotherapist. I am currently undertaking training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (Level 1). I have a well-established private practice in Hamilton-Waikato and I offer professional counselling and psychotherapy services in a safe and caring environment to people from all walks of life and ages. Professional Counselling and Psychotherapy sessions are also offered in Spanish. I am a clinical member of PAnzA, a full member of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors (NZAC) and a member of the Psychotherapist Board of Aotearoa New Zealand (PBANZ).
Originally from Argentina, South America, I immigrated to New Zealand in 2003. I have a varied and successful professional background in the Education and Mental Health Sector. I spent two years working as a volunteer counsellor at the Ngaruawahia Community Crisis Centre while running a private practice, have also worked extensively with people with disabilities as a Support Worker and also as a Process Facilitator, coached children with autism, been involved in Community Education and worked with minority groups and refugees from Colombia and Ecuador. My heart is in empowering individuals from all walks and ages to live a more wholesome life.
Yoga and Meditation practice are integral aspects of my daily routine and essential to my mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. I take my work and your safety very seriously and I endeavour to provide professional services. I take notes after our sessions outlining the work we have covered on the day and these serve me as a “prompt” for our next session. These notes are kept in a locked cabinet to which I do only have access. If you ever wish to read these, you are welcome to do so at any time. In most instances, what we discuss in the room is confidential to both of us; there are some exceptions to this and I am happy to talk to you about it. I invite you to raise any discontent you may have about the services I provide with me first. If you are still not satisfied after our conversation, you can contact my Supervisor or NZAC at www.nzac.org.nz and follow a complaints procedure.
