Counselling Tauranga

I'm currently unavailable.
Please contact another counsellor on this website.

Hi, my name is Colin. I'm a qualified counsellor, a registered member of New Zealand Association of Counsellors and a registered ACC counsellor. I have an office in Pyes Pa (The Lakes) and in Mount Maunganui.


I have experience in counselling individuals, couples, and adolescents through a wide range of issues such as, personal growth, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, addictions, trauma, parenting, blended family issues and other life challenges.


I have over 30 years’ experience working with individuals, couples & families; extensive experience in dealing with a wide range of interpersonal and social issues and have a strong inner desire to contribute to the welfare of others and empowering them to develop and reach their full potential.



Relationship Counselling

I have experience in relationship and couples counselling and working with parents and blended families experiencing relationship issues.


What does counselling involve?

I create a supportive, non-judgmental and confidential environment that supports the development of the client/counsellor relationship so we can work collaboratively to identify, explore and clarify issues affecting your life.


We work together to define your goals, facilitate your personal growth, self-understanding and development within the context of your own values and culture. This empowers you to make changes in order to improve your life circumstances, enhancing your psychological well-being, and enabling you to reach your full potential.



ACC Counselling

People who have experienced sexual abuse in New Zealand can receive free assessment and intervention through the ACC Integrated Services for Sensitive Claims.
