Choosing a counsellor or psychotherapist
When you begin looking for a counsellor or psychotherapist it can be difficult to know which therapist to choose. It is important to find somebody who is qualified and also a member of a professional governing body such as PBANZ (Psychotherapists Board of Aotearoa New Zealand). However, research has shown that a good fit between between client and therapist is also a significant factor in therapeutic outcome so it is worth taking a little time to find a therapist that you feel comfortable with.
Have a read about us and please feel free to contact Jon or Amanda directly if you have any questions that will help you in deciding who is the right therapist for you.
If you would like further information before making your decision we also offer an optional free 20 minute meeting prior to commencing any therapy that allows you to come into the office and meet with either of us in a confidential setting and ask any further questions, as well as simply getting a chance to meet face-to-face and get an idea of who we are.
