Kia ora & welcome, i’m barri,

My qualifications: MA [Social Psychology], Dip.Ed.

My areas of expertise are:

  • Relationships, conflict resolution & Communication Issues for Couples  

Unhappy more than 50% of the time? Arguments don’t get resolved? Not talking to avoid arguments?  Problems piling up under the carpet? Maybe still care about each other, but not 'in love'? No sexual communication? Let's resolve the problems and conflicts skillfully so you can find satisfaction and happiness again.

  • Personal & Relationship Issues for Individuals

Are there some past & present issues in your life that are costing you the career, relationship, family and friends and the happiness you want now and for the future? Are there some negative moods (depression, anger, anxiety, stress, grief) that are overwhelming you at times and costing you the life you want. Let’s address these issues skillfully so you can achieve fulfillment and happiness again.

  • Stress, Life Transitions & Crises

Sometimes problems feel overwhelming, or life crises happen & we struggle to cope. Sometimes we want to make changes but the risks seem too big. Having a coach/mentor/consultant/counsellor on your team can help you negotiate these life transitions more skillfu;;y and with les angst.
