Counsellors who are members of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors are professional and highly qualified. They work with members of the public and with government agencies, schools and corporates to help people deal effectively with life’s stresses. Quality counselling provided by a trusted NZAC professional is a valuable solution for many people facing personal challenges.

Counselling is the process of helping and supporting a person to resolve personal, social, or psychological challenges and difficulties.

A professional and well-trained counsellor helps clients to see things more clearly, possibly from a different view-point, and supports clients to focus on feelings, experiences or behaviour that will facilitate positive change.

 

 

Counselling is Not:

  • Giving advice.
  • Judgemental.
  • Attempting to sort out the problems of the client as the counsellor determines them.
  • Taking on the counsellor’s own opinions and ways of coping.
  • Getting emotionally involved with the client.
  • Looking at a client's problems from your own perspective, based on your own value system.
