Counselling Christchurch NZ


--- Unavailable ---



My name is Virginia Maskill.


I have more than 25 years experience working in the health sector with people experiencing a variety of emotional and psychological problems.


I provide professional, supportive therapy in a supportive, non-judgemental, and collaborative way, which will help you to find the solutions that are right for you. 


As there is no 'one size fits all', our work together will take into consideration your personality, your goals and past experiences and we work at a pace that is comfortable for you. 


My area of expertise include people experiencing low mood, depression, anxiety, stress, relationship difficulties, conflict, substance misuse and addiction problems, coming to terms with a chronic physical or mental health condition and experiencing identity difficulties. 


I also have more than 10 years experience working with people with bipolar affective disorder implementing an evidence based psychotherapy which clinical research trials have shown to be effective.
