Counselling Dunedin

I'm currently unavailable.
Please contact another counsellor on this website.

Hi, my name is Cushla, counsellor in Dunedin. I offer individual counselling, couples counselling, family therapy and clinical hypnotherapy.


I've had over twenty years experience of working as a Social Worker and have been working as a Counsellor since 2012.


I began my career as a medical Social Worker and then moved to Child, Youth and Family (Oranga Tamariki) where I held various social work and specialised positions spanning eleven years.


Once I decided to train as a counsellor I took up the role of Manager of a busy counselling centre, where I developed skills in play therapy, parenting interventions, family violence programmes, family therapy and relationship counselling. I've also worked for an agency delivering brief intervention therapy.


Nowadays I have a fulltime private practice where I provide counselling for ACC sensitive claims and pain management and for the Family Court. I also provide private relationship counselling, family therapy, supervision and counselling for children and adults.
