Counselling in Wellington
ACC Treatment Provider
Every journey begins with a single step.
What to Expect
Anything new can feel a little daunting, and counselling is no exception. Talking about difficult experiences or feelings might seem intimidating, especially if you're not sure what you want to achieve.
But, like anything else, it's often not as hard as you were expecting. And I'm here to help and support you through the process.
Our first session will generally be an opportunity for us to get to know each other a little. We'll speak about what's brought you to counselling, and what you would like to achieve through future meetings. It's a chance for you to talk about the problem as you see it. But there's no pressure - you can share as much or as little as you want to. Either way, I'll work with you to find insight into the issues you are dealing with. Everything we discuss is entirely confidential.
This will also be an opportunity for me to explain to you how I work, and to answer any questions that you might have.
We will then discuss possible ways of moving forward together. We will collaboratively work out a plan of when and how often it would be best to catch up, and we will set a first goal for therapy. This goal can, of course, be changed or reshaped as we go along.
If you are happy to work together, we will arrange a time and day to begin your journey.
Counselling is a way for you to take back the power in your life, and take the first step forward yourself.
I hold a Bachelor's in Counselling (B.Couns.), and am a Provisional Member of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors.
I work in an integrative manner, employing a variety of different modalities and techniques to help my clients in whatever way works best for them. More information on these methods can be found below.
I am an accredited ACC Treatment Provider for sensitive claims.
Although counselling can be a difficult and at times confronting process, I will be there to help you every step of the way, ensuring an experience that is uniquely tailored to your needs.
