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 individuals, couples, 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.
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.
