Anxiety and depression

Everyone can feel anxious or depressed from time to time. However, too much anxiety or depression, or constantly being anxious or depressed, can be unhealthy to our lives and our relationships. Talking it through with a Counsellor can help you to understand what’s going on, identify what triggers your anxiety or depression, and put some strategies in place to help you cope and work towards feeling better.

Grief and loss

Individuals
If you’re dealing with the loss of a loved one, our Counsellors can support you and help you to find ways to work through your grief. It doesn’t matter how long ago you experienced the loss – sometimes grief comes back when we least expect it, and can affect everyone in different ways.

Family/ Whānau
After a death of a family member, communication between family members can be a challenge as each person responds to loss in different ways. Sometimes outside help is needed to assist families to express their concerns, anxiety and sadness in a safe setting. This can help families express and share their loss with each other in a meaningful, constructive way.
