My name is Michelle Rush. I love my job! I work with a wide range of personal issues, including the following depression, anxiety, stress,trauma, grief and loss, burnout. To encourage self-acceptance and self-awareness, we work in different ways depending on how you wish to express yourself.
I am a qualified Psychosynthesis Counsellor and a member of NZAC. I have been in private practice for the past 20 years, ACC and WINZ approved. I am a registered Social Worker, currently practicing part-time for a District Health Board, and a member of ANZASW.
I work with adults and adolescents, and provide a confidential service following the code of ethics of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors and Aotearoa New Zealand Association of Social Workers.
Free parking is available in two nearby streets, Dedwood Street and Seymour Street. Free parking is also available in the Ponsonby shopping centre, a few moments walk away, opposite Republic Furniture.
A wide range of challenges
I have experience in working with a wide range of emotional challenges including depression, anxiety, abuse, trauma and relationship difficulties and other general real life issues. I have also worked extensively with Advance Care or "End of Life" planning.
As a result of my Social work role I am also involved with many domestic violence and trauma clients. I am also ACC registered - so can see clients who have been referred by their GP or other suppliers for Accident Compensation Claim clients.
I work a lot with young adults and adults who have anxiety, depression and self esteem issues.
I am very passionate about assisting clients to overcome their difficulties.
In life "stuff" happens - marriage, divorce, children, miscarriage, illness, death, and many other events along the way. In counselling we work through the issues in life that can affect us all.
Real life isn't straight forward, and I work in an empathic and collaborative way providing a safe and supportive environment where you can work through difficulties to live to your full potential.
