Counselling Rolleston

Hi, my name is Andy. 


How am I showing up in my relationships?
Am I powerful and responsible?
Do I find myself fearful and blaming others?


I counsel a wide range of ages, gender, and issues. I have experience with counselling ages 6 to 80 year olds using play therapy techniques as well as CBT, NT, Sand Tray and Interactive Drawing Therapy.

I specialise in Addictions, Couples, LGBTQ+, Teen, Spiritual guidance, Anxiety, and much more.


I have also worked with adults living life with mental illness working for Arataki Ministries as a Community Service Worker.


In the past I have counselled at Jigsaw North, Anglican Care, YouthSpace, Bream Bay Trust, AOD clinican for Salvation Army, Community Ministry Manager offering Counselling and Emergency services for Salvation Army, Managing Counselling Aotearoa and The Wellness CoLab. I cover a wide range of issues for example; parenting, violence, abuse, relationship issues intrapersonal relationship issues, drug and alcohol, other additions, spiritual mentoring abuse and loss.

Couples therapy
Overview of my approach to couples therapy:

How I work with all my clients is from the Person Centered Approach, basically I use what ever therapeutic model best suited to the clients.

In saying this I have a normal session plan to make the most out of our time together, and cost effective.
Session 1, couple session - talking about areas that need work from both sides.
Session 2, individual session Partner A
Session 3, individual session Partner B
Session 4, couples session to talk together. 
An additional sessions might be needed in regards to more complex issues  



Online therapy

Online only via Zoom or Phone.
Sessions are 45mins long as it is proven the Emotional concentration of the brain wanes considerably after this, and I want to make the best use of your time. 

You will recive a email containing a link to Zoom and any capable phone or laptop with internet will be able to access it. click the link and start the session.
