Therapy Aroha Ltd Compassion-Based Mindfulness


Counselling, Death Doula and Training Services

Our services involve providing facilitation, education and mindfulness training to individual clients, couples and groups. While my background includes counselling and there are techniques I use in helping others which come from various therapeutic models, the approach I use in helping others includes the place of the person whose issues are central to the discussion being the expert in their own problems. This is something I encountered in Narrative Therapy and which quickly became central to my work.

So, if you are looking for someone to help you work through your own problems, you have come to the right place. If you are looking for someone who considers themselves an "expert" in your problems, you have not. This distinction is part of why I prefer the terms facilitator, doula and teacher to therapist or counsellor.

My approach is very eclectic and borrows from a number of modalities, including Cogntive Therapy, Mindfulness and Compassion practices, Narrative Therapy, Gestalt Therapy and a number of pedagological approaches and techniques.
