Anne Ortlepp - Contract Counsellor

Anne is a qualified therapist from Germany with experience in working with children and adults and a strong interest in working with couples. In her work with children she uses creative ways like drawing, storytelling, imaginative play and props, to help children explore and vent their feelings, problem-solve difficult situations, and build self-esteem. 

Play and creativity are often the child's natural ways of communicating what is going on in their lives, and inside them. Anne is trained to speak this special language. She is also currently training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which is a well researched and highly effective couples therapy approach. Anne is also engaged in a psychotherapy training here in New Zealand, called Hakomi Psychotherapy.
