My name is Caroline Wood. I am a qualified counsellor in the Nelson region.
I am a registered, full member of The New Zealand Association of Counsellors (NZAC), and also registered with ACC to work with ACC ‘Sensitive Claims’ clients.
It could be that you would like to have more understanding of a life experience that you find troubling. You may be lacking self-esteem and acceptance of who you are, and need more awareness of your inner strengths to enable your goals to be fulfilled.
You may want to learn new communication or coping skills to help increase your connection to others. Or sometimes you may need connection with a therapist who is outside your family and social network who is empathic and who is there for you and who will listen with non-judgement.
If any of these are of interest to you then I would love to work with you and explore these issues together.
Types of issues
I am experienced in working with clients on a wide range of issues, including:
If you have historic sexual abuse, ACC will pay for 2 sessions regardless of your nationality, for you to learn some coping skills and to explore further options. If you were a resident New Zealander at the time of the abuse, ACC may fund further sessions.
I am registered with ACC to work with you – and if ACC funding is not possible after the first two sessions, then counselling is also available privately with me.
Anxiety, Fear, Phobia
Do you suffer from anxiety, fear or a phobia? The associated feelings can be overwhelming at times and can take over everything you do if the feelings are not dealt with.
Do you suffer from depressive feelings? Depression is a mood disorder that causes loss of interest or passion for life.
Too much stress, often related to work, can lead to a burnout or depression. Counselling can support you in managing and prioritizing your time so that you can feel less stress in your life.
Do you have trouble dealing with a traumatic experience?
Extra support in life
Could you use some extra support in your life? If so feel free to send me a message about general counselling questions or appointments, or send me your email address and phone number so that we can communicate confidentially if you want to talk about your particular issue.
