We support Pacific families and individuals residing in Wellington, Hutt Valley, Porirua and Kapiti to develop skills to cope with different life situations, to reflect and promote self-healing.

We will discuss therapeutic interventions with you and your family, aiga potopoto or support people, and together, decide the best way forward.

These options may include:

Wraparound services
We have specialist drug and alcohol counsellors, social workers in schools, PAFT & Family Start Social workers and Whānau Ora support workers, who can provide support from a holistic perspective.

Sometimes we work with external agencies (Probation, Oranga Tamariki, Police,) in order to provide the best possible care for you.

One-on-one: individual counselling
The counsellor gives one person their undivided and close attention and assists in identifying and fulfilling individual wishes and needs.

Family/Relationship counselling
Couples, apart from addressing their violence behaviours, are encouraged to use good communication skills to improve the quality of their relationship.
