Counselling Tauranga

A Warm Kia Ora to you, my name is Elizabeth Edwards. I have journeyed professionally alongside individuals and their families in Counselling for the past 6 years, having concluded, I found accord with the infamous saying, ‘He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tāngata! What is the most important thing in the world? It is people!

Prior to counselling I worked alongside 'Special Abled' individuals and their families within the disability sector through creative space, and in other roles that enhanced relationship with self and family/ community. I easily resonated having myself a Special Abled daughter, and consequently a wide view of the challenges presented for individuals and their families.

Working in the counselling and facilitation space within Not-for-Profit Social organisations has meant assisting individuals and their families to recover from issues as a result of traumatic response to Abuse, Separation and Loss, often experienced across the life span rather than one singular event.
We can find these responses affect us in many of our relationships. including that with our partners and our children. I am able to assist you to explore opportunity for change with these challenges.

Strengths based and Non-judgemental in my stance, I work from the view that self-knowledge through exploration widens one’s capacity for self- acceptance and adjustment, and therefore ease in making decisions that support a self-directed and chosen life path which can resonate through our relationships, workplace, geography, faith, fervour, and life meaning. In a nutshell, self-knowledge widens choice!

A safe space

My role is to provide you with a space in which you are safe, are truly heard, seen, and where your feelings are validated while I gently interact with your story. This way of being listened to is quite remarkable, and something most of us rarely experience in our has a way of unlocking the answers to many of the the challenges that cause unease and uwellness, whether it be to our body, mind,spirit, family and community.  

Being responsive to your specific situation and needs, I use a range of approaches with which to journey with you but hold base within Cognitive Behaviour, Narrative, Systemic Therapies, Motivational Interviewing and Metaphor work. I also offer a range of practical solution focused tools with which to support your progress.

I'm able to meet with you over Zoom or face to face at the Hillier Centre in Tauranga.
