Welcome to Connective Counselling & Therapy Auckland

During times of stress and crisis, it is easy to feel overwhelmed by problems – that there is no hope, strength or possibility of change – that you don’t have any control over your life and relationships.

Maybe you want to change the way you act, or to reach a new understanding about the way somebody else is acting. Maybe you are stuck and want to move forward, and you want support in making a new start.

Coming to counselling, where you can have respectful and confidential conversations with a trained professional, can be a great way to start getting things sorted out. It can help you to get a better sense of what’s happened in the past, and how this is impacting on you now.

You have just taken the first step towards positive change  …

Working from lovely rooms in a quiet part of Grey Lynn (or see me in Remuera if it suits you better): I’m committed to providing my clients with a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space where they can talk about whatever’s brought them to counselling, as well as the strengths and abilities which can be easily overlooked in times of trouble.
