Counselling Tauranga


A safe journey

My name is Tony. I offer counselling and relationship counselling in Tauranga.

Respect, empathy, genuineness, and a less formal approach are some of the key ingredients in my counselling. Together, a safe journey through the therapy process helps bring positive change in your life and clarity for a smoother road ahead.

I will be listening with empathy and sensitivity, being non-judgemental and respectful of your thoughts, opinions and rights.

Improve the quality of your life

I can help you to understand yourself better, and improve the quality of your life. I can assist you to develop your skills and create new options to deal with issues more effectively.

Our counselling-sessions will help you to be honest and realistic about yourself and your relationships. I will support you to explore and give meaning to your life’s experiences.

Types of issues

I am experienced in working with clients on a wide range of issues, including:

relationship counselling

Relationship issues

If you would like to work on your relationship, I would love to support you in that. I offer individual relationship counselling. The couple does not come in together. I usually see the one that has made the appointment.

You’re welcome with issues such as:

✓ Adultery, affair, infidelity
✓ Anxiety, fears and insecurity
✓ Communication problems
✓ Intimacy issues
✓ Relationship fights

stress counselling


More and more people live a life of stress. Therapy and coaching can support you to experience more time and space in your life again.

Stress and burnout >>

trauma therapy


Do you have trouble dealing with a traumatic experience? Was the experience too overwhelming, so much so, that you cannot get over it, whatever you do?

other issues

Other problems and issues

You’re also welcome with issues such as:

✓ Addiction
✓ Assertiveness
✓ Burnout
✓ Confidence

✓ Self esteem
✓ Sexual abuse
✓ Weight issues

Extra support in life

Could you use some extra support in your life? Counselling and therapy can help!

I often give homework to clients so that they continue to process material after the session has finished. I have an extensive collection of handouts, which I may give to clients to supplement the work done in session.

They contain information or exercises to practise, which reinforces the therapy and encourages progress between sessions. The handouts are a valuable resource during the counselling journey and for future reference.

Feel free to send me a message. You can raise any questions you have, and tell me a little about your situation.
