Sally Shepherd - Bachelor of Counselling Welltec, Counsellor; ACC Sensitive claims provider; Supervisor

Works at Anglican Care Centre, 1b Deveron Street, Whangarei - contact office phone 437 6397.

I’ve lived in Whangarei most of my life and have worked in counselling for 9 years, prior to that I was teaching. 

A lot of my work focuses on people with anxiety difficulties including general anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, panic, and reactions to traumatic events. I also work with those with depression problems, grief and loss as well as doing couples work. 

My specialised skill is working with people who have experienced CSA trauma and are working through this process linked in with ACC sensitive claims. The therapies I primarily use are cognitive behavioral, mindfulness-based and narrative along with acceptance & commitment therapy approaches.  I work collaboratively with clients, agreeing on goals together.
