What We Do

The team at Visionwest Wellbeing Centre provides confidential, culturally appropriate, evidence-based counselling and wellbeing services to families and individuals of all ages including children and adolescent counselling.

We achieve this through various therapies and approaches that fit with the client’s needs.

Counselling

Our team of qualified Counsellors provide a wide range of counselling services. We have expertise and experience in working with children, adolescents, families, couples and individuals.

We are trained in a range of therapeutic models and work in a variety of ways depending on age and the goals of each individual. We have a therapeutic playroom that provides a safe and appealing environment for children.

We are able to provide support and work in areas such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Sexual abuse
  • Anger
  • Grief and Loss
  • Relationship Issues
  • Building Confidence and Self Esteem
  • Sexuality
  • Parenting difficulties
  • Identity issues
  • Behaviour problems with children

Our specialist counsellors are able to provide:

  • ACC sexual abuse counselling (recent and historical; child, adolescent and adult).
  • Postnatal depression and distress.
  • Clinical Supervision.
  • Workplace Supervision.
  • EAP (Employee Assistance Programmes).

All Visionwest counsellors are members of either the New Zealand Christian Counselling Association or the New Zealand Association of Counsellors. We also have skilled trainee interns who are fully supervised and monitored.

The Visionwest Wellbeing Centre is externally audited by the Ministry of Social Development (MSD).

Wellbeing

Many of us go through times in our lives when we feel we lack direction, purpose or meaning. These times can be challenging to navigate through, and this is where having a person to help you focus on your wellbeing can bring clarity, motivation, and a sense of control to your life.

The team members at the Visionwest Wellbeing Centre have the professional and practical skills to help you grow your strengths and create positive changes to bring focus to your life and enable you to reach your personal goals and unlock your true potential.

Clinical Supervision

For a professional counsellor, regular supervision is recommended. It is a way to ensure good care of both the counsellor and their clients, and results in professional growth and good practice.

The Visionwest Wellbeing Centre provides experienced formal supervision in a warm, safe and supportive environment, where counsellors and psychotherapists are able to discuss their work and continue to improve their skills. Each session is specifically tailored to meet the individual needs, skill-level and personality of those being supervised.

Counselling In Schools

Children often seem so resilient that we can forget how incredibly sensitive they can be to what’s going on around them. The reality is children often need counselling support the same as adults do.

The Visionwest Wellbeing Centre is a provider of the Your Choice DHB Counselling Programme for 12 – 24-year-olds and provides one-on-one and group counselling sessions for children in a number of our local primary and intermediate schools. The need for these sessions increased over COVID lockdown times as many children grappled with the uncertainty of those events.
