Counselling

 

In counselling you are helped to explore issues you may be finding difficult to manage, and to develop more satisfying and resourceful ways of living. 

As a professionally trained counsellor and psychologist, with full membership to the New Zealand Psychological Society (Member of the Institute of Counselling Psychology), you can expect Kevin to:

  • be trustworthy
  • respect your confidentiality
  • listen to you carefully and sensitively
  • help you to sort out how you would like things to be different
  • provides support in making the changes you choose to make

An eccletic approach to therapy is used so that individual client needs are met However, the following modes of therapy are generally used:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Solution-based brief Therapy
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Humanistic or client-centred counselling

 

 Kevin may be able to assist you by:

  • seeing you on your own or with a support person
  • providing you with information so you can make informed decisions
  • refer you to someone who can provide specialised treatment/support

 

Kevin can help you to:

  • explore your emotions, thoughts and behaviour
  • become more aware of yourself, your values and what motivates you
  • plan and set goals
  • improve your relationships
  • reduce your stress
  • develop your sense of well-being (self-esteem, spirituality)
  • do things differently 

Fees and Payment methods

Counselling fees are charged at the rate of $130.00 (GST inclusive) per 1 hour individual session, and $180.00 (GST inclusive) per 1.5 hours couple sessions.

I also have a sliding scale for genuine cases of financial hardship.

Payment is due on the day of the consultation and can be paid in cash, by cheque or by on-line payment (an invoice is sent via email)

24 Hours notice of cancellation is generally required to avoid being charged for the session.  The cancellation enables others to make an appointment.
