Psychotherapy and Counselling Services

with Jenny Packard

What I can do for you
I help people lead happier and more fulfilled lives. I help with issues such as loss and grief, separation, identity and self esteem, parenting, personal and family relationships, life stage transitions, depression and anxiety, trauma and abuse, and work-related problems and stress.

My work covers the full dimension of human experience: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.  I help people live in the “here and now”.  I teach people how to integrate and digest limiting patterns from the past.  These patterns may be conscious or unconscious.

I tailor my approach to meet the particular needs, goals, and wellbeing of each person.   I help people to become more aware of their “true nature”, including their creativity, strength and openness. I have special skills and understanding in bodywork, the enneagram and interactive drawing therapy.  I use these skills when and where appropriate.  I will always discuss any of these approaches with you before using them.

My experience
I have been in private practice for over twenty years, working with individuals, couples, and families in either short or long term work. Prior to this, I worked for the Wellington Child and Family Clinic, and the Lower Hutt Family Centre.   I also work as a supervisor/mentor  to people in business and in the helping professions.

My training includes social work, transactional analysis, psychotherapy and family therapy.  I am a fully registered psychotherapist.  I am a member of the New Zealand Association of Psychotherapists and the New Zealand Association of Counsellors.  I am an accredited clinical supervisor and a registered counsellor with ACC.

Finally, I am committed to my own development, both personally and as a therapist.  I have regular supervision and participate in regular training.

I am happy to answer any questions.  Please contact me on  (04) 934 8629
