Nau mai, haere mai. Kia ora and welcome. My name is Nat (she/they), and I am an experienced counsellor and wellbeing coach. I work individually with children, adolescents, and adults. I offer both online and in-person counselling sessions for ages 10+. My in-person sessions take place in a comfortable and quiet space in the heart of Parnell.
My approach is person-centered and pluralistic – I work collaboratively with each individual I support to develop therapeutic goals that are personally meaningful to them, and I pull from a wide variety of counselling theories and modalities to address their unique needs.
I understand that it can be really daunting to seek mental health and wellbeing services for yourself or your loved one. You may have questions about process or about counselling in general. I offer a free 15-minute consultation over the phone during which we can determine together if my services are right for yourself or your whānau at this time.
