Graduate/Student Counselling

Newly graduated and student counsellors are required to complete a certain number of face-to-face hours to either graduate, or achieve full professional body membership (with the New Zealand Association of Counsellors). Consequently, their fees are reduced. If you'd like to access this type of counselling service, please contact the people below. Please note they will be attending professional supervision as part of offering their service to clients.

Rosalie Oliver

Counsellor | Bachelor of Social Practice, Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling

  • Hi, my name is Rosalie Oliver. I specialise in Narrative Therapy. As human beings we make sense of our lives through stories. Sometimes the stories we tell about our lives become dominated by problems. I can help you to separate yourself from the problem/s, creating space to come up with solutions and a more empowering story for your life. 
  • I'm particularly interested in working with issues such as anxiety, depression, chronic illnesses, relationship issues, grief, body image and bullying. I can offer flexible hours, such as after hours or weekends if necessary.
