Supporting You and Your Whānau Every Day




Sometimes We All Need Support To Get By

Getting back your confidence and freedom on your own is hard.

We believe that you don't need to go through this alone. Losing our connections breaks down our relationships and independence.

When you need some support, we're here to help.

  • Anger management sessions

  • Drugs and alcohol support

  • Domestic violence counselling

  • Couples and individual counselling

  • Support if you’re working with Oranga Tamariki, WINZ, Ministry of Justice or other social service agencies

  • Mental health assistance

  • Support if you or your whanau have been impacted by the storms in 2023

You Don’t Need To Go Through This Alone

You deserve to be heard and listened to

If you’re feeling lost and can’t see how to move forward, we’ll sit with you and talk it out first.

Putting your needs first

We work alongside other health and social services, but we have the freedom to put your needs before our own.
