Relationship Counselling Takaka

I'm currently unavailable.
Please contact another counsellor on this website.

I'm Simon, counsellor and relationship counsellor in Takaka.


The counselling process facilitates self-awareness, self-acceptance and the possibility of learning new ways of being in the world and in your relationship. 


I provide individuals and couples with a confidential and supportive environment in which to explore their inner world and their relationship to family, friends and colleagues.


My strengths are in:


  • building a relationship based on partnership, confidentiality and trust.


  • listening respectfully with non-judgemental compassion to my clients' stories.


  • believing that each person has the creative ability to find the best solutions to his or her difficulties that will enhance and enrich their lives and relationship.


  • seeking on-going feedback from clients and couples to improve the counselling process.



Issues and concerns

Issues and concerns that I have assisted people with include:


  • communication and conflict resolution
  • life transitions


  • marriage problems
  • mediation (Family Court)
  • parenting difficulties, behavioral problems


  • relationship difficulties, family dynamics
  • trust, intimacy, sexuality



About me

I work as a counsellor, supervisor, mentor/coach and group facilitator in the Tasman area. I have lived for most of the last 35 years in Golden Bay with my wife Carol Parkinson-Jones and have four adult children. 


I have a degree in Social Work, certificate in Psychodrama, certificate in Supervision and I am a member of the NZ Association of Counsellors.


I have over twenty years experience in providing counselling/therapy and mentoring to individuals, couples, families and groups. From the beginning of 2000 I lived in Christchurch for 8 years, where I worked in social service agencies providing counselling and therapeutic/educational courses to adults, children, adolescents and families. I also worked in private practice providing mentoring/coaching to people in businesses and organisations. 


In 2008 we moved back to Golden Bay where I have continued my work in Golden Bay and Motueka. I also provide Family Court counselling through my work with Relationships Aotearoa.
