CO U N S E L L I N G F O R O L D E R P E O P L E WellElder provides specialist counselling for people over 60 (or 55 for Māori or Pasifika). We counsel individuals, couples, or family/whanau in Newtown, Porirua and Kāpiti and in clients’ homes or rest homes if travel is difficult. No issue is too big or too small

to be brought to counselling. Relationships, losing friends and family, living circumstances, memories, coping with daily life, anxiety, or depression are all issues where counselling can be helpful. We all face challenges as we age. We are never too old to learn new

skills, change behavior, and grow in insight and understanding. If would like to make an appointment or you are wondering whether counselling is for you, please feel free to ring us at the office to ask question and have a chat. You can ring us on (04) 380 2440, Tuesdays to Thursdays.
