Thanks for visiting!
Welcome to my website - bg counselling.co.nz. I hope you can find everything you need here.
Bergen Gell Counselling is focused on providing high-quality service and customer satisfaction - I will do everything I can to meet your expectations.
Having two young adult I am well aware of what they face in our society and what it's like to deal with that as a parent. And being married for a long period of time, I have an understanding of relationships and how they work, also what to try and implement to make it successful. In my life I have had exposure to family violence, abuse, alcoholism/addiction,family divorce, death and blended families.
I draw from all that life experience and counsel out of who I am while coupling that with the training and skill set that I have.
I am passionate about about helping an facilitating people to get to where they are wanting to in life. I have a faith that I believe adds to my profession, so if you choose to bring faith or spirituality into the session you are more than welcome.
I have been involved in many Not For Profit Organisations doing paid and voluntary work. All that lead me to become a qualified Counsellor. My background is a Youthline Phone Counsellor, a Parenting Place Facilitator, as well as a qualified Teacher Aide and I hold a Advanced Study Major in Grief and Loss. I have attended many workshops those being: Family Violence, Mentoring for Teenagers, Sexual Abuse awareness, Complex Trauma and Grief, Discovering your True Self, DARE, Personal and Professional Development.
I belong to NZAC and adhere to their Code of ethics.
My life experiences enable me to reach a wide range of people dealing with a variety of issues.
I offer counselling sessions, text support once our sessions start and email support if required and SKYPE.
There is no time frame on how many sessions we do - that is something that we discuss on a regular basis so you can feel comfortable with the journey that you are taking with me. My session lengths are 50-60mins.
My services are affordable - as you will see. Contact me to discuss rate. WINZ options available.
With a variety of resource's that I draw from, I'm sure you'll be happy working with me.
