Wairarapa Wellness offers face to face appointments in our Wairarapa office.
We also offer online video calls in some circumstances – please enquire.
New for 2022 is the option of meeting outside in the natural environment, sometimes referred to as eco therapy or nature therapy. For more information on this see the About Page.
To help parents and care-givers of young children to access counselling, I offer the option of home visits.

Nature based sessions are $105 and run for 75 minutes.
Some people may be eligible for funding from Work and Income New Zealand. Check online to see if WINZ can contribute towards your counselling cost or contact me for more information.
I am ACC registered which means that counselling is free for those who seek support because of historical or recent sexual abuse. Contact me for more information.
Under the Gumboot Friday fund, children and young people aged 5-24 years can access two free counselling sessions.
Fees can be paid in cash on the day or online bank transfer.
If you are unable to make an appointment, please give at least 24 hours notice to allow for other people to be scheduled into this time.
