Counselling Avondale - Auckland

My name is Karen Begg, counsellor in Avondale - Auckland.


I trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy so am interested in the ways that our early relationships impact our lives. 


Through exploring your relational patterns, we can begin to understand your ongoing actions and emotions. 


Within the safety of the therapeutic relationship we can then consider new ways of being that allow you to be happy and healthy in your relationships.



Counselling/Therapy Services

There are many reasons people seek therapy or counselling. These might include everyday stress and anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, bereavement, alcoholism and addiction, living with a loved one in addiction or recovery.


Whatever leads you to contact me, I can help you to make sense of it and find your best responses or solutions.


My heritage is Māori and European.

As a Maori practitioner (Ngāti Raukawa, Te Āti Haunui-a-Pāpārangi) I value Maori knowledge and health, and invite you as tangata whaiora to bring your own expertise to your healing work. 



What can you expect when we meet? 


  • to be listened and responded to 
  • assistance to reflect on your life and issues 
  • help to understand your emotions and behaviours 
  • help to understand your needs and how to meet them


My clinical experience is mostly in working with people suffering from depression, anxiety, and/or substance abuse. 


I can assist you with interpersonal or relationship issues, managing your emotions, anger and stress, and mindfulness techniques.


Would you like to know more or make an appointment, feel free to contact me.
