Crista Schorr-Kon

Psychotherapist

 

In these uncertain times anxieties and sadness are often closer to the surface, old problems can reappear and difficulties become harder to ignore. Talk therapy helps you understand yourself and what’s happening and makes you more resilient in the long term. Available by Telehealth or in person.

 

I see people with a wide range of issues including:

  • stress/overwhelm
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • self-worth
  • grief
  • social isolation
  • mistrust
  • trauma
  • mid-life transitions
  • parenting children with special needs
  • relationship issues
  • separations and divorce

 

Counselling/Therapy Services

If you are frustrated with repeating old patterns of behaving and feeling, then psychotherapy can make a big difference to your life. I am also interested in helping people make meaning of themselves and their lives. Working on a deeper level provides permanent change.

 

Counselling/Therapy Approach

I provide a warm safe environment where we take time to understand the root causes, what is going on and what is going wrong. Giving you the freedom to see things from a new perspective and make different choices.

 

Background and Experience

My work as a psychotherapist includes: Family Action, Te Atatu working with trauma-related symptoms, domestic violence and sexual abuse; AUT Psychotherapy Clinic; and my private practice, working with depression, anxiety, OCD, relationship difficulties and general overwhelm
