Helping whānau/families grow together

We can help you and your whānau to work through issues that may just feel too big for you all to deal with.

There are many ways that our team of counsellors, social workers and psychologists can help. This may include one-to-one counselling sessions, advocacy or other support that are best suited your meet your whānau's needs.

Most important is that you contact us and ask for help. Our services are confidential and free.
