Relationship Counselling Blenheim

All relationships have their ups and downs. Having a relationship counsellor can help facilitate communication and learn how to be your best in a relationship. 


When I do relationship counselling - the first session will be with both parties in order to establish what we are working on and future sessions will usually involve both parties but I may also suggest individual sessions, if necessary.



About me

My name is Sharon. I was born in South Africa and immigrated to New Zealand in 2008 with my husband and two children. We lived in Wellington for 8 years before relocating to Blenheim. 


I obtained a degree in psychological counselling from a university in South Africa.  After moving to New Zealand, I furthered my official education with a diploma in Life Coaching.  I have also read countless books and done tons of research as well as spending two years receiving regular counselling/coaching myself in order to grow myself as a counsellor. 


During that time, I wrote a course for kids that taught them how to be more resilient and implemented it in several schools. I have been counselling couples, adults and children under 12 since 2012 and thus have many hours of experience.


I now run my own practice in Blenheim where I have a counselling office and a fully equipped play-based counselling room for children.  


Online therapy

I offer counselling via skype, zoom, messenger and email to international clients.


I offer counselling online or in person to clients in Blenheim, New Zealand.

Statement concerning the coronavirus pandemic

I will see people in person during level 2 or lower.  If there is a lock down of level 3 or higher, I will continue to be available online.

Qualifications and registrations

  • BA Degree in psychological counselling
  • Diploma in life coaching
  • Certified in CBT



I have a particular interest in working with children and have studied child psychology extensively.  I have raised two children and thus bring a certain amount of life experience to my work along with my training.  I have a background in education.  


When I work with people, I tend to use goal directed and solution focussed methods.  Much of my experience and training was with CBT type counselling and I am heavily influenced by this.
