Individuals/Couples/Youth/Family Counselling Services

Christchurch Canterbury Individuals/Couples/Youth/Family/Counselling

At some point in our life all of us can experience situations, problems and concerns that leave us feeling overwhelmed, lost, depressed, confused, angry, scared or lonely. A helpful solution to this is therapy/counselling.

Counselling gives you the opportunity to explore thoughts, feelings and concerns without criticism, in a safe and confidential setting. It can help you think with greater clarity, identify ways to help you manage and remind you that you have the internal resources you need to grow and create positive change in your life.

Counselling can also empower you to live a more satisfying, fulfilling and effective life by helping you let go of negative and obstructive thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
