Discounted & lower cost help

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. 

There is also a counsellor and organisations listed who offer lower cost/subsidised counselling.
