Andrea Dobbs - Crisis Counsellor Bachelor of Social Science (Counselling); M. Education; Cert. Adult Teaching; Cert. Business Administration

I have been counselling since 2003, in both private practice and in the health sector. My speciality 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.
