Counsellor, Person Centred, Bachelors of Counselling, Provisional Registration DAPAANZ
My name is Michael Graham Hill. My Parents are both from Dunedin. Further back I am of English and Scotts decent. I identify New Zealand, and the South Island specifically as the home I share with Tangata whenua and all the peoples who have chosen to stand here now.
My counseling training has been in Person Centered, Rogerian Therapy. I am no stranger to the hurt and frustration that addictive dysfunction can cause. I am also aware of the impact anger and violence can have within a family. I know how those expressing anger can be isolated and find change beyond their reach. I come to the Canterbury Men’s Center with heart felt empathy for those desperately seeking a way forward.
The Anxiety of Life can be overwhelming and we feel desperate. In Counseling boundaries can be reevaluated and healthy attachment practiced. Basic trust is strengthened. I am humbled every time I experience the courage of men in Counseling. I am a grateful Counselor to be witness to and supportive of positive change in men.
