“Out of our vulnerabilities will come our stregnth”
Matt Brown - Counsellor
Dip-PC, Provisional Member NZAC
I have always had a passion for helping people make strong positive changes in their lives. I work with both youth and adult clients. I see young people with their parents as well as older children 11+ in a 1-1 capacity should they wish. I also work directly with parents. I work in the Solution Focused and Narrative based therapies with my clients. I enjoy working with young people and their families and seeing growth through change. Please note I do not provide assessment, diagnosis, or medical treatment for mental health conditions. I am always happy to help refer clients to a Psychologist or Psychiatrist for this work. I also no longer do couples counselling.
I was born and raised in Nelson, moving to Christchurch at the age of 24, after returning from Australia. I now call Rolleston home where he has lived for the past 12 years.
Outside the world of counselling, I am a proud father to my 10yr daughter. I like DIY work, often taking on jobs I probably can't finish or are too big for me. But I try anyway.
