Confidential and safe
My name is Angela Morgenstern. I am a qualified counsellor in Petone, Lower Hutt. In my practice Counselling Lower Hutt I offer counselling, therapy and coaching.
I’m a member of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors – MNZAC and an Associate Member of the EMDR Association in Australia (EMDRAA).
I’m a compassionate and professional counsellor and coach with more than 15 years of experience of helping people to go from where they are now to where they want to be.
Important here is for me to establish a trusting therapeutic relationship enabling people to express themselves openly and freely in a confidential and safe environment. I have the professional knowledge and skills to assure people that they are carefully listened to, are understood, and treated with respect and dignity – no matter how confused / difficult the situation might seem.
Types of issues
I am experienced in working with clients on a wide range of issues, including:
Anxiety is a response to fear, this can be a real fear, an imagined fear or a fear of our feelings.
A person experiencing depression is likely to encounter difficulty coping with daily stressors and may feel helpless and alone.
Other problems and issues
I have successfully treated people with a range of issues, such as:
A more fulfilling and joyful life
Are you stuck? Do you feel anxious, sad, doubtful, or face changes in your life that feel too hard to handle?
Could you use somebody non-judgemental and sincere on your side who can counsel and coach you through that difficult patch and help you feel confident again about you and about life.
In counselling I help people to explore aspects of their lives that they find challenging and difficult to deal with.
I have successfully treated people with issues that range from minor to chronic problems, such as anxiety, depression, difficult life transitions, panic attacks, ptsd, relationship issues, low self esteem, sleep difficulties, stress, trauma.
I have a long standing history working with a wide spectrum of people and I’m familiar with a wide range of interventions that target desired changes for a more fulfilling and joyful life.
Effective therapy, life coaching and counselling enables people in their own time and at their own pace to choose their goals for living a meaningful life. My goal is for you to leave each of my sessions with a clear sense of achievement and satisfying results. Clients have told me I have an ‘honest and straight forward’ style.
My coaching is focused on helping you get your life back on track by making conscious decisions,
Counselling & Therapy
I blend the elements of different therapeutic approaches (such as ACT, CBT, Existential, Gestalt, Solution Focused, Biodynamic and more) and tailor their treatment according to your unique needs. I use common sense and love to incorporate practical exercises, which makes our experience fun.
Honest and straight forward
I am helping people to explore, reflect on, and see parts of their lives more clearly by offering them different perspectives or views, including information that will help them to discover their own issue with new unknown aspects of it which often lead to positive change.
I do this not only through ‘talking’ therapy, People learn very useful skills in my sessions. I implement a variety of exercises which very often lead up to unexpected and welcoming answers and solutions for individuals.
Every person is different and unique, I therefore adjust my style and skills to meet people in therapy on their particular level of comfort.
Feel free to send me a message. You can raise any questions you have, and tell me a little about your situation.
