Couples Counselling Christchurch

Hi my name is Fumiko Wakeham, I am a MNZAC and ACC registered counsellor based in Christchurch.


You're welcome for individual counselling and couples counselling.



EFT - Relationship Counselling

​For relationship counselling, I use Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). I work with couples to look at what blocks the growth of their loving connection and collaboratively create new ways of engaging, using experiential steps.

EFT is a short-term form of therapy that focuses on adult relationships and attachment/bonding. With EFT, we look at patterns in the relationship and take steps to create a more secure bond and develop more trust to move the relationship in a healthier, more positive direction.


Benefits of EFT Include:


  • Feeling more intimate and connected to your partner


  • Resolving conflict, releasing long-held tensions


  • Developing healthier, more satisfying communication


  • Improving emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy


  • Resolving old problematic issues in your relationship.


I find this therapy truly engaging and inspiring.



About me

Originally from Japan, I came to live in NZ in 1993.


I think I always believed that we are created for connection.  So when I started hearing this phrase coming from the scientific community studying mental health and marital stability, I was in. 


I have witnessed my fair share of inter-personal difficulty and relationship suffering, but deep down I always believed that we have much more capacity for creating secure connection and thriving relationship.


When I learned about EFT, I felt like I discovered a theory that gave me a framework for what I believed.


EFT invites you to discover yourself - that you are indeed created for connection. EFT helps you experience how that connection becomes real to you.


​Once you experience it, I know you will be in too.


I am here to welcome you. ​Let’s talk.
