A message from Julie... Hi, I have over twenty years experience in the social services sector. My training background is that of counsellor. I hold a Bachelor of Applied Social Science in Counselling, Post Graduate Certificate in Advanced Relationship and Family Counselling and are a member of New Zealand Association of Counselling. I have a passion for supporting families to achieve their hopes and dreams. As a mother of four sons I have extensive experience in navigating parent/child/adolescent behaviour and relationships. In accessing services at Morrinsville Community House you get to meet with me first. At this meeting we will work together on assessing the needs you and/or your family have and put services in place to best meet these. I place importance on building and nurturing relationships and look forward to meeting with you.

A message from Vicky... I am a member of the NZAC (NZ Association of Counsellors) and hold a Bachelor of Applied Social Science (Counselling) and have experience working with youth and adults of all ages. I wish to honour people's values, beliefs, culture, and the communities within which they live and love being able to support people so they can find ways to make a difference in their lives as they journey towards more preferred ways of living.

I enjoy helping people.
