About

Ai is an ACC Registered Trauma (Sexual Abuse) Therapist, EAP therapist, Domestic violence advocate, Domestic violence therapist, NZCCA qualified counsellor and social worker (Registered in Japan). Ai can undertake counselling in either English or Japanese. Ai works with groups and individuals including, adults, children and adolescents. My experts are mental health, addiction, domestic violence, suicidal intervention, and LGBTQ+. I am a member of Auckland Rainbow Trust, having a passion to help Queer clients and the community!
I believe the relationship between the client and myself is equal and therapeutic by the holistic perspective, which means we create your new counselling journey with a comfortable and safe environment. I use my own life experience and work experience as a social worker and counsellor to combine different interventions.
I am a counsellor who wants to understand you from a holistic approach and respect your words, not from my professional point of view. I believe the therapeutic relationship must be equal and trust each other.
