Andrea Dobbs - Counsellor

I have been counselling since 2003, in both private practice and in the health sector.  My specialty is in trauma, grief and loss, depression, and anxiety.  What I offer clients is a safe place to heal from pain, distress, and the effects of trauma.  My personal story of survival, and my work with clients, confirms the statement that “Even in hell hope can flower” (Edith Eger).  My practice is based on my personal belief that we are all on a journey of ‘becoming’ who we truly are and that we have the inner gifts and strength to support ourselves towards healing, growth, and wholeness.

I have been married for over 40 years and we have three grown children and eight grandchildren.  I enjoy drawing, painting, and reading.  I am a passionate crocheter, which I have been doing since I was seven, and have been teaching classes for several years.  What keeps me motivated to teach crochet is hearing the many stories of how a simple hook and a ball of wool has healed and changed peoples’ lives.  I am a member of the NZ Christian Counsellors Association.

Andrea works from her office in Tamahere.

Debbie Buddle - Counsellor 

Debbie is a Solutions Focused Counsellor that provides tools and techniques to support you outside the Counselling space.  She is a registered NZAC provisional member.   

Being both a Nutritionist and a Counsellor enables her to offer a complete service to her clients, as supporting the body and mind connection is an important factor to overall health and well-being.

We all have stress to deal with in our lives and certain types of stress and trauma can trigger a cascade of biochemical changes that help create the perfect environment for ill health. It could be a death of a family member, separation, divorce, personal injury, job pressures, financial problems, change in living conditions, challenges with children or parents, relationships, trauma, grief, purpose in life, illness or food related issues. Anxiety and stress can be sickening but whether we choose to let the stress become distress is the critical issue.

Debbie is also a meditation and mindfulness coach.  Learning to respond over reacting is a powerful tool.  Debbie focuses on changing the stress inducing environment by providing coping strategies and tools and techniques including mindfulness, meditation, mind mapping and other management techniques.

Debbie works from the MSASS offices at 25 Rifle Range Rd or via telehealth.

Please enquire about Debbie's availability.

Niki Green - Counsellor

My name is Niki and I am a counsellor here at Midlands Sexual Assault Support Services (MSASS).

I am new to Hamilton and relocated from New Plymouth where I was born and raised.

Prior to working with MSASS, I started a non-profit online community created to share stories, support and advocate for people who were experiencing depression, anxiety and other mental illness. I am passionate about starting real conversations that bring understanding to and help reduce the stigma people with mental health issues experience.

I gained my Master’s degree in counselling in 2014 and trained in the area of sexual violence. I still feel honoured every time survivors of trauma allow me to be part of their journey towards healing.

When I am not working you can find me in my comfy trackpants binge watching crime documentaries or hanging out with family and friends. 

Niki works from the MSASS offices at 25 Rifle Range Rd, Hamilton.

Niki is not currently taking new ACC clients.
