Heather Gribben - Diploma of Counselling 

Works at Anglican Care Centre, 1b Deveron Street, Whangarei and Anglican Church Hall, 58 Hokianga Road, Dargaville - contact office phone 437 6397.

I have lived in Northland for over thirty years, and have been working as a counsellor with adults (individuals and couples) and adolescents since 2002. I work with varying issues including anxiety, stress, depression, grief, self-concept and relationships. I work eclectically, primarily using Person-Centered therapy, but have a particular interest in CBT, Narrative and Solution-Focused modalities, which are utilised when appropriate.

I also regularly facilitate a series of psycho-educational workshops focusing on self-concept, communication, anxiety, stress and coping with change. As a former teacher, I’m passionate about being ‘the fence at the top of the cliff’ rather than ‘the ambulance at the bottom’ in this capacity.
