Janet Baird - Senior Counsellor / Team Leader
Member - NZ Association of Counsellors
MCouns (Hons 1st Class), P.G. Cert. Counselling (Family), Dip. Counselling.
I have worked at Grief Support Services since the end of 2007 when I moved to the Bay of Plenty from Palmerston North. In Palmerston North I worked at Massey University and at Te Aroha Noa Community Services.
I love my role as a counsellor providing a safe, accepting space where people can speak freely and feel fully heard and acknowledged. It might be a space to find words for what has happened. Or it might be a space where people want to explore how they could respond to the pain, loss and changes they are experiencing and importantly, how to do this in their own time.
I work with individuals, couples and families / whanau.
