Positive changes to your life

My name is Shanti Rajan. I’m committed to help you to make positive changes to your life.

I am a full accredited member of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors (NZAC) and a member of the New Zealand Association of Positive Psychology (NZAPP). I am an ACC-approved provider for sensitive claims.

mindfulness and relaxation therapy

Relaxation therapy

Are you suffering from issues such as:

– Anxiety
– Panic attacks
– Sleeping problems
– Stress

Sleep deprivation may well affect outcomes of therapy. I will introduce relaxation techniques and mindfulness-techniques to you to enable you to gain better rest. These techniques have also been known to reduce anxiety, panic attacks and stress.

stress and burnout

Stress and burnout

Do you often feel rushed? You have trouble relaxing or sleeping? Do you easily get annoyed or frustrated? Do you suffer from anxiety?

Other problems and issues

– anger management
– anxiety
– depression
– grief

Solution focused therapy, CBT and Mindfulness are some of the therapies, that I would apply when working with clients.

A tailored treatment

I will ensure a trustful, working relationship between you and me. We begin with an initial consultation where a personalized treatment plan is designed.

The duration of each therapy session will be 1 hour.

I do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ therapeutic approach. Therefore you’ll receive a tailored treatment to ensure that an effective positive outcome is achieved.

Feel free to send me a message. You can raise any questions you have, and tell me a little about your situation.
