Person-Centred, Holistic Approach
Te Whare Tapa Whā
Life certainly knows how to dish us out some predicaments in our lives where we can feel out of control or lost as to how to move forward in a healthy way. Counselling aims to facilitate greater choice within these predicaments. It is a safe space for contemplation over what is important to you in your life so that you can walk a conscious path with no regrets.
Life sends us challenges because we are here to learn and grow. Yet we have very little education on how to do this. I graciously use the Te ao Māori approach of Te Whare Tapa Whā, that is a holistic perspective, to do my best to leave no stone unturned in terms of understanding why you are where you are, so you can learn optimally about yourself and become stronger and more resilient moving into the future with tools to support your journey.
I also regard myself to be a person-centred and self-compassion focused therapist whereby the main emphasis is on a trusting, caring relationship between myself and my clients. Being trained in an eclectic approach, however, also enables me to draw from a number of different counselling modalities to assist the process if necessary.
My passions in life are raising my two sons, being in nature, and practicing anything and everything that brings balance and joy into my life. I am a recoveree from a 10 year long journey with chronic illness which led me to co-creating the Towards Wellness program, designed specifically for people in NZ suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and its many co-existing conditions.
My life experiences to date have enabled me to currently offer a safe haven and sanctuary for people to come and receive the support they need to flourish and move forward in their lives in a positive and fulfilling way.
Kira is such a wonderful counsellor, I couldn't recommend her more highly. She has a quiet. calm demeanour and is able to instantly put you at ease. She has a unique ability to understand and interpret what you are trying to communicate and helps to really nail down what support and advice you need to be able to unravel any issues and move forward. Kira helped us so much and our lives are certainly a lot happier since working with her. Thank you Kira xx."
