Biography

Kia ora, I am an experienced Counsellor and Group Facilitator that has been involved in clinical work for the past 10+ years. I work alongside male clients who are navigating major life transitions, coping with mental health challenges, or seeking greater self-awareness. My top specialties are men's issues, intimate partner abuse and violence, anger management, and parenting. I utilise narrative therapy to guide our counselling sessions. My approach is person-centered - putting you in control of your therapeutic journey. I incorporate solutions-focused brief therapy and motivation interviewing to assist you to achieve manageable goals. Our counselling sessions embrace a strength-based, trauma-informed framework. I'm excited to connect with you and explore how we can work together to achieve your goals and create positive change. I look forward to hearing from you. Noho ora mai, Neil
