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).
