Deirdre brings a wealth of experience to her work at Relate Chambers in Ponsonby, having worked as a Counsellor, Family Therapist and trainer for many years within Social Services, Family Court, tertiary counselling education, and now in Private Practice .

Deirdre’s approach is gentle, centred and wise. She has extensive training in contemporary narrative, constructive, and cognitive/mindfulness counselling styles (backed by current neuroscience), and will help you find new perspective on the relationship or personal problems you’re facing. With the space to discuss, reflect, and re-focus, you’ll find fresh insight into what’s happening, what it is you want, and how to get there.

Professional Supervision for counsellors and students is also a sizeable part of her practice. Please contact Deirdre direct for more information about this or to discuss your supervision needs at
