Services

I offer help with the following...

ADDICTION
alcohol, drugs, gambling, games, pills, food, work, exercise, etc

If you are feeling your drinking/drug use is getting out of control, people close to you may be making comments regarding your drinking/drug use, you are not getting to live the life you wanted.

Maybe you are doing whatever you are doing because of trauma that has happened in your life. If you want to be free of that Trauma then make an appointment to see me and I will work with that. You donít even need to go into detail about that for me to help you.

Or maybe the triggers are Pleasure, Habit, Relief, Discontentment etc. and maybe you want to cut back or stop doing what you are doing and we will work with a treatment plan specific for you and how to deal with life issues in a healthy way, alternatives to spending your time drinking/using etc.

It is also important to have your family or those close to you part of the process of change so they are welcome to come with you.

INDEFINITE DRINK DRIVERS WANTING TO GET THEIR LICENCE BACK

To see if you qualify for funding give me a call and I will make an appointment for you at a time that suits you. Come in and have assessment, education on effects of alcohol on driving, standard drinks, effects of alcohol on your body, discuss your attitude towards drinking and driving etc.

I will require you to write a letter to NZ Transport Agency regarding your attitude what it was and how you have changed this etc. You will be required to have a blood test and then a visit to my Land Transport Doctor and then I will forward the Assessment and your letter to NZ Transport Agency for their consideration.

REPORTS FOR COURT

You may have a drink driving charge and you may wish to have a Report on how you are changing your life and how that is progressing. This report will include your history of drinking/using, family of origin history if relevant, triggers, motivation to change and how you are going to keep the change. I will also put forward any recommendations that I consider relevant.

Anxiety issues

Are you sick of feeling stressed out and not doing things that others seem to do easily because you're worried about what might happen?
Do you wish you could feel more confident and be the kind of person who just 'goes for it'?

It's important when helping you with your anxiety issues, that you learn how to relax yourself, to build internal resources, resolve any underlying trauma, work through negative memories and beliefs about yourself as well as work towards reaching your goals.

Each person is different and you may experience anxiety specifically related to a single event or object (eg. flying, speaking in public, earthquakes, betrayal) other times, especially if left untreated the brain gets very good at 'doing anxiety' and the person finds themselves feeling anxious about a number of situations. This is when people may be given a diagnosis of 'generalised anxiety disorder'.

The counselling style we work with is based in NLP (Neuro linguistic Programming) and is a solution-focused approach.

Depression can also be related to circumstances such as coping with the loss of someone close, dissatisfaction at work, family or relationship issues or not having a clear life path for example. Ann helps clients deal with the underlying issues and emotions so they can get their life back on track again.

And can help you work through:
  • If you are already taking medication and want to regain control over your wellness.

LESS PAIN FOR MORE GAIN

People are often pleasantly surprised to discover that in order to turn their lives around, it is not necessary to re-live old hurtful experiences. The reluctance to uncover old stories is sometimes a factor in people delaying getting the help they need to make significant and supportive shifts.

The fact is that with NLP, you can achieve change without the practitioner needing to know any details about, for example, a phobia or a traumatic experience.
