Biography

Too often we focus on what is wrong with us. What would it be like to focus on what is RIGHT with us? Kia ora, my name is Alex, and I have worked with young people and adults in the education sector for over 25 years as a teacher, manager, coach and counsellor in both the UK and Aotearoa, NZ. With a Master of Counselling (First Class Hons)and member of NZAC (New Zealand Association of Counsellors), I work as a person-centred counsellor & coach, with an eclectic kete of modalities to support you in a way that works best for you. I am genuine, non-judgmental, empathic, down to earth and very approachable. I have worked extensively with young people in schools as well as supporting adults and whānau (see below for areas of specialism) and continue to work part-time as a counsellor in schools, whilst also counselling in private practice, alongside EAP and coaching in wellbeing and positive psychology. My clients describe feeling heard, valued and accepted without judgment, and leave with clarity around next steps and skills/resources to practice on their journey to living well. I offer counselling in Howick and Bucklands Beach, as well as online.
