About Me

Therapy and Counselling North Shore Auckland


“The destiny of every human being is decided by what goes on inside his skull when confronted by what goes on outside his skull.” Eric Berne 

Qualified counsellor on Auckland’s North Shore

I have been counselling for 10 years and have worked with therapy clients for the past four years. As a highly trained counsellor, I have a Master of Counselling (Hons), a Post Graduate Diploma in Education (Counselling) and a Bachelor of Journalism and Media Studies. I am a member of the NZ Association of Counsellors (MNZAC), a member of Aotearoa New Zealand Transactional Analysis Association (ANZTAA) and an ACC-registered counsellor. I am currently working towards my CTA (Psychotherapy) – Certified Transactional Analyst.   Before becoming a counsellor, I worked as a journalist for a variety of publications around the world, in particular South Africa, Hong Kong, and New Zealand. The life experience, knowledge and multicultural perspectives I am able to bring to my work has helped me to understand the problems of a wide variety of clients. I have a great respect for my clients’ cultural background and beliefs and acknowledge the tiriti o Waitangi.

Sometimes we need someone…

to really listen to us so we can work through our problems and challenges. It’s about compassion and focus. A non-judgmental, understanding, caring and supportive professional can help you make sense of what is happening for you.

Are you looking for private counselling or therapy services?

Counselling and therapy is about walking beside someone for a time and you getting help to make important change to your life or adapt to new circumstances. As a counsellor, my job is done when you have learnt to feel confident and engage well within yourself and with other people in your life.

If you’re having difficulties and you think that therapy might be helpful, then get in touch. Val Leveson offers private counselling and therapy services in Glenfield, North Shore, Auckland.

Talking does help.
