"A real insight into who I am and where I should be going, and how to get there."


KWC is committed to providing a free, safe, confidential service which abides by the Code of Ethics and Professional Standards of the National Association of Counsellors (NZAC). The team of dedicated volunteer counsellors are able to offer you around eight counselling sessions. A detailed information booklet on this free service is available from the Kapiti Womens Centre.

KWC would like to acknowledge the generous support for the counselling programme from Family & Community Services and the Box Trust.

8 – Confidentiality of the counselling service at KWC

Although the counselling service at KWC is confidential there are limitations to that confidentiality. You will be asked to sign a document which says that you agree with these limitations. (more…)

7 – What can I do if I have concerns about my counselling?

KWC has a policy of providing excellent service to the women and children in our community. We know that we can only improve if we are aware of what we could be doing better. (more…)

6 – Cancellations

Because of the high demand for the counselling service, you must make every effort to come to your appointments. If you can’t make any session, we ask that you notify the Centre at least 24 hours before your appointment. Any late cancellations will be included in your allocation of eight sessions. Remember, other women are on the waiting list and missed appointments delay their access to counselling.

5 – Valuing our service

After your first and last counselling sessions, you will be asked to complete an evaluation form. The evaluation of the KWC Counselling Service is important for us and ensures the service is the best it can be. (more…)
