You can find a counsellor through the New Zealand Association of Counsellors (NZAC), the Mental Health Education and Resource Centre (MHERC) or in the Family Services Directory. Some counsellors offer funded or subsidised treatment but you may have to pay part or all of the cost.

Some employers offer employee assistance programmes (EAP). An EAP is a confidential service that your employer pays for. The programme has qualified, registered and experienced professionals who can help you and your immediate whānau/family talk through issues that may be affecting your wellbeing or your ability to do your job. Talk to your manager or human resources representative about whether your employer offers an EAP.
