Online Therapy

Kia ora, I'm Averil, an experienced registered counsellor in private practice working with individuals and couples. I offer online sessions using Zoom for clients NZ-wide, and in-person sessions on Thursdays and Fridays in Birkenhead on the North Shore, Auckland. I enjoy supporting with issues of anxiety, self-esteem, low motivation, and relationship difficulties, particularly with those in their 20s and 30s as well as anyone ready to make a change. I work in an action-oriented way, meaning that you'll come away from sessions not only with insights but techniques and strategies you can apply between sessions. I use approaches including self-compassion, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and motivational techniques to help clients experience tangible positive changes in their lives and mental wellbeing. I am also NZ's only certified Relational Life Therapist for couples work, which is Terry Real's modern, effective approach for supporting couples to understand themselves and each other, and providing real tools to get past blocks and treat each other better. If this sounds interesting to you, get in touch today and find out if we would be a good match to work together to achieve the outcomes you're looking for.
