Relationship Counselling Christchurch

Hi, my name is Khan. You're welcome for couples counselling and family therapy in Christchurch. 


My counselling practice in Merivale, Christchurch specialises in the use of the Solution Focused Model. 


The process of change does not have to be long and traumatic. My approach is dynamic, energising and most importantly, effective.


I use this model to assist individuals, couples and families to transform themselves on the path toward their preferred future.



Couples counselling

Regardless of what problems your relationship is currently experiencing, there was always a time when this relationship was how you would like it to be. A time when there were qualities present that made you want to spend time with this person, get to know this person and build a relationship with this person.


It doesn’t matter how well everything else is going in your life, if your relationship is not in a place where it is fulfilling you, if your relationship is one of your points of stress and frustration, then the rest of your life is going to feel challenging.


My passion is in creating an environment whereby couples can reignite the sparks that created the relationship in the first place. Focusing on outcomes enable qualities of hope, and belief  to enter the room. It is my job to ask questions that elicit these qualities and move our work in the direction of your desired outcome.



About me

What I love about my job is the opportunity to experience the powerful characteristics being revealed in the people that I work with. I am consistently amazed by the often unaware ways people navigate difficult times in their lives. It is my job to ask questions that evoke this part of you.


I strive toward working in a way whereby I leave as little footprints as possible,  i.e. doing more with less (more outcomes with fewer interventions) enabling you to get on with life in a way that only you know how.


This is why it is highly valuable for people who are seeking fast ways forward, effective outcomes, or immediate intervention with lasting consequences.
