The Auckland Women’s Centre is committed to providing safe, confidential, affordable and effective counselling and coaching. We welcome everyone who identifies as a woman and everyone who identifies as non-binary.

All AWC counsellors are fully qualified, professionally supervised and belong to a professional body.


Sessions are by appointment and cost $80 per hour. When there is financial hardship, please ask the counsellor if you can negotiate to pay less.

Our Counselling Service is not funded or subsidised. The rates reflect a desire to make counselling affordable for most women. If you are able to pay more, please negotiate this with your counsellor.

Please bring cash for each appointment as we do not have EFTPOS or credit card facilities here.

If you need to cancel your appointment please provide us with one’s days notice of cancellation. Cancellations less than one working days’ notice can expect to be charged for the appointment.

Our counsellor

Jane Tyrer

Jane Tyrer has worked as a counsellor, social worker and in a range of social service roles for the last 30 years. She enjoys supporting people to navigate their way through difficulties, clarify their values and strengths and find enthusiasm for new possibilities. She believes that counselling is a respectful, negotiated process that highlights skills, resources and insight and that it can offer a place to explore challenges from fresh perspectives and facilitate positive change.

Jane has helped women through all sorts of issues including depression, anxiety, stress, disordered eating, body image issues, relationship, parenting concerns and abuse. Counselling can be optimistic and hopeful without minimising the very real difficulties and challenges that people face.

Jane holds a Diploma in Holistic Counselling (Holos Institute) and a Graduate Diploma in Narrative Counselling (Unitec). She is a Member of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors (MNZAC).
