Counselling Hub

Here at Elim Christian Centre we care about our people. If you are struggling spiritually, mentally or emotionally, we would encourage you to reach out and get help.

Why should I get counselling?

Sometimes we can find ourselves stuck and unsure of what the next step is. We need a safe space to talk and begin to find our way forward. Counselling can collaboratively help you unlock the next step in whatever you are facing, whether anxiety, grief and loss, depression, stress, relationship conflicts or whatever it is that is causing you distress. Counselling can help you find clarity and gain confidence to take that next step towards the life you desire.

We offer six free counselling sessions to members of Elim Christian Centre, Elim Leadership College and Elim Christian College. We are available to see clients in our counselling rooms in the City, Botany, Manurewa, and Papakura campuses or online.

Please email us at [email protected] for availability.

We offer a respectful, safe and non-judgemental space for you to feel comfortable to share your life story and process some of the challenging and painful parts.

Our counsellors have a range of experience in counselling and pastoral roles and have been privileged to work with people from many different walks of life, ages, and ethnicities. We have both seen and experienced many of the ups and downs of life that we can find ourselves in, and have come to believe that there is always hope.

Our counsellors and trainee counsellors are trained in a variety of modalities including Person-Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural therapy, and Narrative therapy and have regular professional development and supervision to support the quality of our counselling practice. We are committed to the New Zealand Christian Counsellors Association’s Code of Ethics.
