Do you need counselling?
At that first meeting, you meet one of our trained staff (usually not a counsellor). You will make a plan to get to what you want to achieve and if that involves counselling, we match you to the best counsellor. We also let you know any information we have about other options.


8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. Weekend times also available.

Waiting List

We can normally see the man within the first week or so of contact depending on his availability.


Our main office for counselling is 357 Gloucester St, Linwood, Christchurch. We also provide a counselling service from rooms in Kaiapoi and Ashburton.

WINZ Disability Allowance

You may be eligible for the WINZ Disability Allowance to cover your counselling costs. We will help you figure out if you are eligible and get you through the process.


We support you to work through the process if you are eligible.

Weekends and evenings

Minimum $60. * Please note: Initial sessions on weekend and evenings are also a suggested $60, but we won’t make this a barrier if it causes you hardship.

Couples Counselling

Couples Counselling

Men have asked us to offer couples counselling with many telling us that they didn’t get a fair go when they went to a couples counsellor. We believe our crew will support both of you to feel validated and can make the most of your time with us.
We charge $80-$120- based on your capacity to pay. Just contact us and we’ll set things up. To get things going give us a call at 03 365 9000 during normal business hours, write to or use the form below.

The Canterbury Men’s Centre also offers Life Coaching. If you are taking a goal focus toward life this could be the service you need. We have several life coaches. Just contact us for more info.


Our fees are negotiable and based on the capacity of men to pay. Honestly. Contact us for more info.
