Are you wanting to make positive changes in your life?
Would you like to:
- Feel happier and more confident in your life?
- Overcome issues of anger?
- Develop a closer, more loving relationship?
- Overcome feelings of stress, anxiety, worry or depression?
Most of us want to create better lives for ourselves. We want to feel happier. We want better relationships. And we want to overcome feelings that may be limiting our lives, such as anger, anxiety, depression or worry.
Unfortunately, it can be hard to make the changes that we want to make. Problems often get a hold of us and won’t let go. We may resolve never to lose our temper at our partner again, but we do. We may decide to not let stress, worry or anxiety take control of us, but we find ourselves again and again feeling stressed, worried or anxious.
Whatever situation we are in however, or whatever issues we are struggling with, life can change. Problems such as anger, anxiety, depression or any other problem can be overcome. No matter how hard it may seem, creating a life free of these issues is possible.
Whatever problem we are facing, it is hard to change our lives on own own. Sometimes we do not have the skills to respond to our issues. Other times we may be too close to the situation we are in to see it in useful ways. We may have tried everything to deal with the problems we are facing, but nothing is working. We can feel down, lost, hopeless, helpless and depressed.
Seeing a professional counsellor such as myself can help move you from this space. I can help you to:
- Overcome unwanted feelings of anger, anxiety, stress, worry or depression
- Build closer and more loving relationships
- Develop happiness and self-confidence, including helping you value your unique skills, talents, values and achievements
- Create a happier, healthier and more joyous life.
I have helped literally thousands of people overcome feelings of anger, anxiety, worry, stress and depression. I can help you do the same!
Hello, my name is Alastair Duhs.
I have been a professional counsellor and life coach for the last 25 years. In this time I have helped literally thousands of people overcome the problems that they have been facing and create happier, healthier and more joyous lives. Many of these people came into counselling thinking that their lives could never change. Many had seen other counsellors before, with little or no real change. Many had lost hope for change in their lives.
Whatever issues you are are facing, I can help you create a happier, healthier and more joyous life.

What Others Say About Me…
“Over the years, I believe that I have seen a total of 7-8 counsellors. Without any shred of exaggeration, my experience with Alastair was by far the best. He was extremely helpful and he really truly did change my situation at the time completely into a positive direction. I have recommended him to many people since. I will never forget what he did for me, and all I need to do is think about him and it renews my faith in people and that they can care and make a difference and things can change.”

What Others Say (Continued)
Couples counselling has been one of the best experiences we have been through as a couple. I have learned how to control my anger in arguments and I am listening to my partner far more than I have before. We are much closer as a couple and look forward to our future together.

How Long Does Counselling Take?
The length of counselling depends on what issues you are facing. Most people make considerable improvement in their lives in as little as four to eight sessions.
How Much Does Counselling Cost?
Counselling is an investment in yourself. I charge $140 per individual counselling session (50 mins) or $200 per counselling session (50 mins) for couples . I also offer extended sessions for couples. These sessions are 80 minutes long and cost $240. Evening sessions are also available and cost on additional $20. This investment in yourself or your relationship can save much stress and unhappiness in the future.
What Is Your Success Rate?
It is difficult to clearly state success rates in counselling as everyone has a different definition of success. Most people report significant positive changes in their lives after four to eight counselling sessions.
Counselling has not worked for us previously. Why should this be different?
I am a highly effective counsellor. I have described some of the ways that I am unique above. Sometimes counselling does not work as a person is not fully ready for change. If you are unsure if counselling will work, ask yourself if you are ready for change. If you are, I will be able to help you achieve the changes you want to make.
Where Are You Located?
I am located at 433 Lake Road, Takapuna, Auckland. There is parking in front of my building. If you are unable to get to Takapuna I also use Skype to provide online counselling for individuals or couples.
When Are Your Available?
I can offer appointments between 8am to 8:15pm, Monday to Friday (not all sessions available all days). You can check the exact time when sessions are available using my online booking system.
