Counselling Takaka

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

I'm Simon, counsellor and relationship counsellor in Takaka.


The counselling process facilitates self-awareness, self-acceptance and the possibility of learning new ways of being in the world. 


I provide my clients - children, adolescents, adults and couples - with a confidential and supportive environment in which to explore their inner world and their relationship to family, friends and colleagues.


My strengths are in:


  • building a relationship based on partnership, confidentiality and trust.


  • listening respectfully with non-judgemental compassion to my clients' stories.


  • believing that each person has the creative ability to find the best solutions to his or her difficulties that will enhance and enrich their lives.


  • seeking on-going feedback from clients to improve the counselling process.



Issues and concerns

Issues and concerns that I have assisted people with include:


  • anger management
  • anxiety
  • communication and conflict resolution


  • depression
  • life transitions
  • mediation (Family Court)


  • parenting difficulties, behavioral problems
  • loss and grief
  • relationship difficulties, family dynamics


  • self esteem and confidence
  • stress
  • trust, intimacy, sexuality
  • work related issues



Supervision & mentoring

Supervision: I am a qualified supervisor and have enjoyed providing this service to other counsellors, trainee counsellors, teachers and social workers since 1998.


Mentoring/Coaching: I provide individual and group mentoring to people in organisations and businesses. I have establised and run several businesses in my earlier working life and have founded and worked in several community organisations.



About me

I work as a counsellor, supervisor, mentor/coach and group facilitator in the Tasman area. I have lived for most of the last 35 years in Golden Bay with my wife Carol Parkinson-Jones and have four adult children. 


I have a degree in Social Work, certificate in Psychodrama, certificate in Supervision and I am a member of the NZ Association of Counsellors.


I have over twenty years experience in providing counselling/therapy and mentoring to individuals, couples, families and groups. From the beginning of 2000 I lived in Christchurch for 8 years, where I worked in social service agencies providing counselling and therapeutic/educational courses to adults, children, adolescents and families. I also worked in private practice providing mentoring/coaching to people in businesses and organisations. 


In 2008 we moved back to Golden Bay where I have continued my work in Golden Bay and Motueka. I also provide Family Court counselling through my work with Relationships Aotearoa.
