Helen Mounsey is our South Island Regional Director and one of our Christchurch therapists
M.Ed (Cert. in Counselling), B.A, Dip Teaching (Secondary), NZAC
As regional director, it is my job to direct you to the therapist who is most suitable for your needs. We have four excellent therapists operating in the South Island region. Two are in Christchurch (myself and a male colleague) one in the Richmond/Nelson area and one in Dunedin.
I have a private practice in the suburb of Spreydon, Christchurch. Both the location and parking are easy to find, and I am available from Tues to Thursday with late nights until about 7 pm.
I have particular training and interest in individuals and couples who come with emotional and sexual intimacy concerns, addictions, attachment problems, and trauma related matters. I have been involved in sex therapy for over 10 years and completed the Advanced Sex Therapy training in 2006. I work with relationships issues in general and have done so for over 20 years.
I believe most people want to work out practical solutions which they can sustain in their often busy lives. Confidentiality is always paramount. I am accountable to the Code of Ethics of NZAC, the Family Court and ACC. I use a range of approaches, including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Narrative therapy and Attachment theory.
I also provide consultancy for a range of issues which include depression, stress, anxiety, grief and loss and major life changes. I worked for a number of years in high schools with adolescents before establishing my own clinical practice and so have a strong interest in parenting and families.
