Counselling Nelson

Kia ora, my name is Lara, I am Pākehā and reside in Nelson, Aotearoa.

I provide general counselling here in Nelson either face-to face or on zoom.

I provide a non-judgmental, compassionate, safe space for people and value the importance
of the therapeutic relationship.

I offer a person-centered approach drawing on a range of therapeutic modalities to meet people’s needs. These include evidence-based practices such as solution-focused, motivational interviewing, Te Whare Tapa Whā (mental, physical, family/community and spiritual well-being), with a sprinkling of humour when needed.

Most importantly I listen to where people are at and work with you to help move forward and make sense of life’s challenges. We all need support at times and I appreciate the courage it takes to seek out counselling. 
I have experience supporting family/whānau with a loved one with alcohol or other drug
misuse, peri-natal support and parenting. I have an interest in women’s health, mindfulness
and te ao Māori.

I welcome people from diverse backgrounds, values, beliefs, cultures, abilities and age
groups 18+

If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment, please contact me
