About Us

Deryl Rollinson

Dip HEc TTC NZITAA Provisional member NZAC J® Practitioner

Since I was a 15yrs old, I’ve been intrigued by the real impact of my thinking i.e. the power of the mind.

Doc. Charles Mayo, from the famed Mayo Clinic said “Worry affects the circulation, the heart, the glands and the entire nervous system.

Worry will do to your emotions and your physiology what sand will do to your car’s gas tank—it may gum up the system and wreak havoc! Worry is also like a smoke alarm—and the alarm is sounding because something is wrong.

My own personal journey (alongside a solid reliable other), meant I shone a light on my own worries. I explored them and blossomed out the other side - alive!

I experienced a softening, of both my emotional and physical symptoms, an organic transformation empowering me from the inside out.

Hence I’m inspired to walking alongside “another” facilitating their own innate rediscovery of hope and inner peace.

My 12 years+ of intensive training has enriched and inspired my Counselling and TA Psychotherapy practise. Imago Principles guide Relationship Counselling, Journey work empowers intrinsic change and a mixture of different theoretical orientations i.e. Person Centred, Gestalt, CBT, Solution Focused, TRE & Psychodrama, support the differing needs and rhythm of each client.

I have worked successfully with all ages - six year olds, youth, couples, right through to the elderly presenting a wide range of issues.

Confidentiality is really important to us

Privacy, confidentiality, integrity, trust and respect are our core values. Your confidentially is protected both under the HDCA (Health and Disability Commissioner Act) and under the code of ethics of the NZAC. There are exceptions as follows:

  • As part of good professional practice, therapists routinely discuss aspects of their work with their supervisors (who are also bound by the code of ethics).
  • Where there is legal duty to report when clients pose serious danger to others or themselves.
  • Should a judge subpoena notes.
"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."
