counselling therapy life coach wellington
Hi, I'm Mary 

If you're reading this, I'd first like to acknowledge you for taking this positive step forward for yourself. 

Clients often report feeling a lot better after sessions. Finding a warm and supportive space to talk with someone who cares and is really listening can take a load off your mind and help you see things more clearly.

My background

I grew up in rural Ireland in a challenging home environment that set me on a path for wanting to understand relationships, human behaviour and our capacity for change. 


After working in roles in communications, marketing, IT and the public sector, I listened to my inner wisdom and took the plunge and started a business that aligns with my values.


I feel privileged to support people through challenging times. Other aspects of my work I'm passionate about are helping people develop a healthy relationship with themselves and helping them overcome any challenges that are standing between them and the life they want. 

I'd love to meet you on your journey - whether you're in a time of transition, needing support, tools an outside perspective or help with stress, anxiety or depression, or help with improving relationships - with yourself or others. 

I have a Diploma in Life Coaching, Diploma in Counselling, I've studied Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) through the Beck Institute (the founders of CBT). I'm also a qualified EFT practitioner (Emotional Freedom Technique) and mindfulness practicioner. I have a BA(hons) in Communication studies, and have been a facilitator for teens. I've also volunteered for environmental and community organisations in New Zealand and abroad.

How I work

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

I came across Cognitive behavioral therapy when I was looking for a way to help clients to break free of unhealthy thinking patterns.

CBT is a fantastic way of being able to do that, giving you new ways of responding to life's challenges while building resilience.

I'm very excited to be able to share this and other modalities with my clients. For me it's about sharing with my clients practical tools and skills to transform their daily lives.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

Emotional Freedom Technique is a body based therapy and is a very effective tool for healing emotional distress.

Real change happens from the inside out

These are just some of the modalities I use in my work with clients.

I believe that real change happens from the inside out. When we change our beliefs about ourselves and the world, those changes ripple out and bring in magical changes. I hope I have the opportunity to connect with you and help you make the changes you want in your life and relationships.

Ready to get started?

I work via phone, online (Zoom) and out of our peaceful office suite. 


You can book online or get in touch with any questions.  I look forward to connecting with you and seeing how I can help you in your life!

"Mary is FANTASTIC and I’ve found her incredibly helpful, compassionate and supportive.


She has a very kind and warm nature which made her easy to talk to. Her input was always measured and I appreciate that she got me to try new techniques for stress and anxiety management, and to think about my situation in new ways.


If you’re looking for a friendly face to help you through tough times I highly recommend Mary!"
