My professional affiliations
My main professional affiliation is with the New Zealand Association of Counsellors. Every single year, as a Full member of NZAC, I have to renew my Annual Practicing Certificate which requires continuing professional development and regular professional supervision.
I am a member of the Perinatal Society of Australia and New Zealand. PSANZ is a multidisciplinary society dedicated to improving the health and long term outcomes for mothers and their babies. PSANZ encompasses and strongly encourages research focused on mothers and babies during pregnancy and at birth as well as the health of the newborn as its development continues after birth.
I am a member of the PADA Perinatal Anxiety& Depression Aotearoa, an organization dedicated to improving outcomes for families and whanau affected by mental illness related to pregnancy, childbirth, and early parenthood.
I am a member of the Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health. APPPAH’s mission is to support and promote human potential from the very beginning of life by providing global education to professionals and families about emerging evidence in prenatal and perinatal science and birth psychology that babies are conscious and aware and have their own thoughts, feelings, and experiences before, during, and after birth.
I have been in private practice since 2009. I came to New Zealand in 2013, prior to that in Europe I was (and I am) a registered psychotherapist working with individuals, couples, and families using the systemic family approach.
I have rich experience in perinatal counselling and therapy for couples with relationship issues, broader family issues, difficult decisions and anxiety around pregnancy, the transition to parenthood, depression, antenatal and postnatal distress, parent-infant relationship issues, career and motherhood (or returning to work after the birth of a baby). I work with perinatal grief and loss (miscarriage, stillbirth loss of a baby) and post-abortion syndrome. Also, I worked with women and couples who struggle with infertility and provided psychological support of ART (Assisted Reproductive Technology). See more...
Group facilitation and training, both in a comfortable environment and online, has been and still is a big part of my practice. I created a number of courses for women, couples, families, and mental health professionals. See more...
