Sonia Voldseth | Coach and counsellor
|1092 Frankton Road
Currently I have a waitinglist of 6+ weeks.
For an earlier appointment, please see another counsellor on this website.
I help people navigate through real life. Messy relationships, sucky jobs, heartbreak, trauma, and dreams you’ve forgotten.
I'll give you actionable tools to help you let go, find meaning, and re-gain confidence and courage. I will be your biggest supporter while we work together to heal the stuff that’s holding you back.
I will do my best to make sure you get breakthroughs, insights and empowerment. This, of course, also requires your participation, hard work and willingness to look inward.
I am experienced in working with clients on a wide range of issues, including: anger management, anxiety and fears, depression, low self-esteem, trauma, individual relationship counselling.
I am a member of the International Coach Federation.

Reviews Counselling QueenstownBelow you will find reviews about Counselling Queenstown - Sonia Voldseth
Based on 2 reviews
We worked through topics that I chose and every single session was significant and successful, because I learnt a lot about myself. I think we all have our answers inside, but sometimes we need to be open to go into deep emotions to heal our present. That's what my sessions were about.
I felt very comfortable talking to Sonia, sharing my experiences and doing exercises to have a healthy lifestyle. I'm a very happy client, thanks again Sonia for teaching me and giving me a lot of tools to heal myself.”
A wealth of knowledge, Sonia has been so extremely helpful in my journey, I cannot thank her enough!”
