Our Counsellors

Kia ora my name is Fiona. I am a guidance counsellor here at Onslow Wednesday, Thursday and Friday each week.

I applaud counselling as it is the ear needed for any age culture and gender. I am very open honest and totally with you in a warm safe environment when you come to see me. I am a mother, grandmother, driver, head chef, carpenter (small jobs) and gofer so I have seen and heard a lot. Please feel free to see me anytime.
