Kia Ora & Welcome

Covid-19/Corona virus update 24/3/2020 – BUSINESS AS UNUSUAL

We are continuing to provide counselling via remote services but will be closing the office until further notice.

We are taking Covid-19, everyone’s health, and our role in the fast passage of this pandemic, seriously.
If you have an appointment booked your therapist will be in touch with you prior to your scheduled appointment to discuss options of how to meet.
If you are wanting to make an appointment please look at our the “our therapists” page on our website to find the therapist you would like to work with.  Please phone, text or email and leave a message if your therapist is unable to answer and your she/he will return your call.  You can book your own appointment directly with some of our counsellors.
All counsellors direct phone number and email contact details is in their profile page.
All counsellors have variety of ways to meet online or by phone (including zoom, skype, whatssapp, facetime, and others). Your counsellor will discuss these options with you.
Until the Government gives us the okay we will be unable to meet in person at our office. We will keep you informed of any changes to this as soon as it becomes clear when we can re-open to see people in person (and please know that we are very much looking forward to that day!)
Check our blogs for ideas to help you through this crisis.
Our phone has been redirected, but would request all administrative queries should be sent to
