Michael Nolan MNZAC

Mike-1-colour-resizedI began my journey into counselling in the early 1990s helping in a voluntary capacity with engaged and married couples using the Prepare/Enrich programme. This has led on to a career in working with couples and individuals resolving many of the issues that we face in this sometimes challenging world.

I have always enjoyed meeting new people, hearing their stories and helping them to create a new experience for themselves and their relationships. It is my view that the people who come to see me are not weak or defective in any way, but just stuck. Living is a risky adventure and so often there is a challenge around the corner that we just didn’t see coming.

We can get lots of advice from lots of sources but often it just doesn’t seem to fit. A qualified counsellor can help you make sense of your experience and free you up to make decisions that will work for you.

Please contact me should you have any questions regarding my services.
