Counselling Palmerston North
Hi, my name is Karlyn. I'm a counsellor in Palmerston North.
I love offering people the opportunity to speak freely and without judgement, supporting them to feel heard and to heal. I work a lot with people who live with disability and I also support people who have had any form of sexual abuse.
I am a registered ACC Counsellor for sensitive claims and I also see WINZ clients. I am passionate about supporting people to heal from depression, anxiety and chronic stress or pain.
I also offer relationship counselling and family therapy.
My beautiful villa is at 24 Campbell Street Palmerston North, where you can just relax, be yourself and begin your healing journey.
A safe and confidential place
My counselling room is a safe and confidential place to encourage your emotional growth and healing. This allows you to resolve problems and make positive changes in order to live a more happy and fulfilled life.
Sometimes an opportunity to talk something through with someone who is trained to listen attentively and objectively, without judging or offering direct advice, can provide a tremendous relief.
I use a holistic, client-centred and strength-based approach and I love supporting people to be the best version of themselves.
I have been working as a Counsellor since 2013.
I offer my clients my genuine, non-judgemental presence. I support each person with whatever is on top for them and offer a space to talk openly and to heal from whatever happened in the past.
Focusing on the here and now will enable you to set achievable goals to move forward.
Feel free to send me a message.
I offer my clients online counselling via zoom, skype or messenger. This is a wonderful way to have support from the comforts of your own home.

InterviewRead the interview with Karlyn Sullivan-Jones below.
24 Campbell St Palmerston North
Getting married and having 5 incredible children.
When I was 28 years old I became pregnant for the first time. I was overjoyed as I wanted to become a mum more than anything in the world. I was happily married, we had our own home and life was perfect.
At our first scan we were told that we were expecting twins. I was ecstatic! Then we were told that this was an extremely rare and complicated twin pregnancy.
I went into premature labour at 24 weeks and had my first born who was rushed to intensive care and my second twin did not survive. My first twin was in the neonatal until for 6 months, it was touch and go, and came home on so many medications and oxygen. He has had many set backs and challenges and now is a thriving almost 13 year old with 3 younger brothers.
The grief I experienced as a new mum was excruciating. But I was determined to use my experience to help support others.
Being a Counsellor has taught me so much about myself. Most importantly, it has taught me to love unconditionally and be authentic and genuine with my word.
Setting up my own private practice, trusting and believing in myself that I can do it. ❤️
With 5 kids and a business I don't have a lot of time for hobbies! But I do love to travel and have holidays and going for long walks down by the river.
My family ❤️ my friends. My pets. Travelling. Going on adventures. Relaxing with a good book or watching a great series with my husband.
My husband is an officer in the Army and has been enlisted for 24 years. We met in East Timor when I was in the Air Force. We have 5 children. ❤️
As part of my training I saw a Counsellor. Now I have two supervisors who I see regularly.
A police officer. But I am so happy I chose to become a counsellor, it is the most rewarding career for me.
I am so fortunate to have amazing people in my life. My mum. My husband. My god mother. My friends. People always inspire me. ❤️
