Our Counselling Service


We offer a confidential counselling service for all women (up to 10 sessions). Our counsellors are all professionally trained volunteer counsellors (NMIT or elsewhere) to help you address a wide range of life issues.


The service is low-cost and very much dependent on a conversation you have with the counsellor and your personal circumstances.


Please don't hesitate to contact our social workers for an initial assessment.
After that, there can sometimes be a waitlist, because there is a high demand for this service.

Phone or video counselling are available with recent covid restrictions.


Please ring: 03 546 8441 or email us on nws@nelsonwomenscentre.org.nz


Our current volunteer counsellors are: Liz Putaura, Ashlyn Hornsby, Sarah Miratana, Sally Scott, Karen Paice, Cath Clarke, and Lily Gower.

Our counselling coordinators are Cath Clarke & Ashlyn Hornsby (IT).
