Dealing with trauma, change, loss and grief can be very hard at times. You don't have to do it alone. Having someone working alongside you can make a difference​. We offer counselling for adults, children, young people, and family/whānau who are experiencing any kind of grief, loss and trauma. 

When working with children we have a family-centered approach. This means we include parents or caregivers and family members in the counselling process when appropriate.

The range of issues we could support you with include:

  • Grief and bereavement (including bereavement by suicide or homicide)
  • Trauma (including witnessing a traumatic event)
  • Family break up and adjusting to blended families
  • Behavioural issues (anger in children, bullying, ASD)
  • Illness and anticipated death
  • Mild to moderate mental health issues
  • Domestic Violence
  • Broken relationships
  • Injury or disability
  • Disaster aftermath

Skylight offers counselling services in:

  • Kapiti
  • Porirua

Online Counselling is also available. You can connect with a Counsellor at a time and place that suits you. All you need is a computer and the internet. Telephone counselling is also offered.
