Connective Counselling & Therapy in Grey Lynn & Remuera, 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, how this is impacting on you now, and to shape a future with new possibilities.

A little bit about me...

My name is Marie Edwards and I am a New Zealander with Scottish, English and Maori heritage.  I am also a proud Mum. I work from lovely rooms in Grey Lynn (or see me in Remuera if it suits you better). I’m committed to providing my clients with a safe, confidential, non-judgmental 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.  I am happy to discuss my practice approach, or just counselling in general, if the information on my website does not answer any questions you might have.  I always feel privileged to hear my client's stories, and I look forward to talking with you!
