Referral Process

The service is designed for whānau, with tamariki and rangatahi 17 years and under living on Waiheke Island.

Please contact our reception for more information and bookings, or ask your Nurse or GP for a referral.


The Piritahi Hau Ora Whānau Therapist provides skilled help for whānau, parents and tamariki/children, to assist resolving problems that make living together difficult.

Our Therapist is a caring, careful listener who offers counselling for the whole whānau in a supportive non-judgmental environment.

The behaviour of tamariki and rangatahi/young people influences the entire household, as does the behaviour of parents. The Whānau Therapist may be able to assist with a range of behavioural issues including 2 year old tantrums, teenage temper outburst, physical, emotional and sexual violence, effects of parental separation, substance and alcohol abuse and its effects, school issues and difficulties over access to a non-custodial parent, for example.

It is a CONFIDENTIAL and FREE service. Individuals or couples may be seen, following an initial whānau interview.
