Mental Health Coach Christchurch

Kia Ora, my name is Amber Ribberink, a mental health coach that offers online and offline coaching. I have been working as a support worker in disability services and youth care for many years and currently work as an online psychologist for the Netherlands.

I am not registered as a psychologist here in New Zealand, therefore I provide mental health coaching only. This means I will not be able to give you a diagnose but I am able to support you with a wide range of mental health problems using Acceptance and commitment therapy and Cognitive behavioural therapy.

I am a coach who is genuinely interested in the problems of others, this is reflected in my method. I give people a lot of space to tell their story because I believe I can only offer good, individualized care by listening carefully.

I am a warm, down to earth person who uses a healthy dose of humour while working with people.

Who can I help?

I can support you if you have depressive symptoms, anxiety, burn-out, stress, perfectionism or a low self-esteem. I also help you with excessive worrying and negative thoughts.

Feel free to contact me if you have other mild difficulties. My expertise mainly lies with young adults between 18-25 years old, but you can also approach me if you are older. Unfortunately, I cannot accept people under eighteen or couples.

How do I work?

During a 15 minutes free introduction call we briefly discuss your problems, and I will assess if I can provide the right care.

During the intake ($70) we will talk about your problems more extensively so that I can make an individualized support plan based on your personal goals. 

You can assess the support plan and decide if you want to get through with the coaching. I will also give you an estimation of the amount of sessions that I think we will need.

Would you like to know more or make an appointment, feel free to contact me.
