Counsellor & Cultural Supervisor
I'm Vicki and I am an experienced Counsellor who has worked with and supported primary age children, young people, women, men, families and couples. I am also an ACC Sensitive Claims Counsellor.
I am currently based in both Ōtautahi (Christchurch) and the Tauranga Moana (Bay of Plenty) region. I can offer face to face counselling as well as telephone and video counselling services.
I also provide cultural supervision services for qualified counsellors, counsellors in training and other therapeutic practitioners and professionals.
As a Counsellor alongside the therapeutic skills and knowledges that shape my practice I also draw on my own journey navigating and overcoming the effects of addiction, violence and trauma.
My hope and intention as a Counsellor is to provide you with genuine tautoko, awhi and manaakitanga in our work together so that you can experience healing and restoration, and build the life that you want for yourself free from what ever may be getting in your way.
As a Cultural Supervisor my intention will be to nurture a Tuakana-Teina relationship with you that challenges and authentically develops your understanding and knowledge of yourself, Tangata Whenua and Te Ao Māori. My hope is to support you in shaping your practice and mahi in ways that benefit and improve the hauora of Tangata Whenua.
