Counselling Rotorua

My name is Marieke. I'm a counsellor in Rotorua.
I run a private practice offering individual counselling and couples counselling.

I have worked in the counselling field for over 20 years have a Masters of Counselling Degree and am passionate about supporting people to heal and grow.

I have training and experience in a variety of counselling approaches and am flexible in my approach depending on the needs of my clients.

I am able to support people to manage a range of life’s challenges including emotional dysregulation, unhelpful thought patterns, relationship issues, addiction issues, depression/ anxiety, trauma , grief / loss and other personal, work and family challenges.

I believe counselling provides a space for people to explore new ways of seeing themselves, their experiences and their lives. Learning new skills and growing insight and self-awareness assists you to gain a sense of control and purpose, opens opportunity and provides a platform for positive change and personal fulfilment.

Would you like to know more or make an appointment, feel free to contact me.
