Counselling Gisborne



Welcome!

We are Counselling Gisborne. We bring expertise, warmth and experience counselling in the Gisborne region.

Individual counselling Gisborne

We offer private practice individual counselling for adults and adolescents.

We consider the main focus of our work is to help people reach their potential wherever they are in life, whether struggling through tough times or simply looking for direction.

We provide a safe space for people to share their concerns and challenges that life has thrown them, and find new ways of moving forward.

We are experienced in working with clients on a wide range of issues, including:

Anxiety and fears

Experiencing anxiety can be very frightening and we can get into a situation where the fear of having an anxiety attack can actually bring on the anxiety.

Depression

Are you feeling lifeless, empty and unmotivated? Are you having trouble focusing?
