Albany House Counsellors:

Beth Garvey Senior Counsellor MNZAC, MTAAP   Dip. Counselling, Dip. Analytical Psychotherapy, Dip. Relationship & Psychosexual Counselling  B.Mus, TTC

      
 

Beth has a passion for her work with people. Working from a ‘client centred’ approach, Beth really enjoys helping her clients’ on their journey of growth and being with them as they understand who they are, identify what is important to them and discover their potential. Beth is a member of the local committee of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors (NZAC) as she has a deep interest in counselling and the local counselling scene. Prior to joining Rata, she worked as a secondary school teacher and a phone counsellor. Beth brings a Jungian approach to her work and has many counselling qualifications as well as supervision training.

When Beth is not counselling, she fufills her love of music by playing in two orchestras, and is involved in choirs. Photography is another passion of hers.

What Beth likes most about working with her colleagues at Albany House is the warm, friendly supportive atmosphere. This touches every part of her day; to all the clients and colleagues, as well as the counsellors she supervises to help develop their counselling skills, approaches and abilities.
