Do You Want a Happier, Healthier and Joyous Life?
Would You Like To:
- Deal with issues such as problematic anger, anxiety or depression?
- Learn how to have a more connected and fulfilling relationship?
- Wake up feeling upbeat, positive and worry-free?
- Start living a happier, healthier and more joyous life?
Most of us want happier, healthier and more joyous lives. Yet it can be hard to achieve this. Feelings such as anger, anxiety or depression can take over our lives. Relationship issues may be destroying us. We may feel sad, lonely or stressed. We may be so busy that we run madly from one task to another-never feeling like we can get everything done.
Whatever situation we are in, life can get better. Problems such as anger, anxiety, depression or any other problem can be overcome. No matter how bleak it seems, life can change.
When faced with problems, it is often difficult 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 can help move us from this space. Counselling helps people to:
- Learn the skills, tools and techniques to overcome problematic feelings such as anger, anxiety or depression
- Develop skills to build loving and respectful relationships
- See themselves differently, including helping them to recognize their own skills, talents, value and achievements
- Improve their self-esteem and confidence
- Put in place specific actions to create the life happier, healthier and more joyous lives.
I have helped literally thousands of people create happier, healthier and more joyous lives. I can help you do the same!
Hello. My name is Alastair Duhs.
In the last 17 years I have helped literally thousands of people overcome problems such as anger, anxiety, depression or relationship problems. Many of these people thought that they could never overcome these problems. Many had lost hope for change. Some had been to many counsellors before.
Whatever the issues you are are facing, I can help you overcome these issues and create a happier, healthier and more joyous life.
In the early 1990’s I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Quantum Physics from Auckland University. I then worked for several years as a Patent Attorney before retraining as a counsellor and psychotherapist. I have worked as an individual and couples counsellor since 1998.
Outside of work I am a keen kayaker, astronomer, chess player, nature lover and triathlete. I have completed Ironman New Zealand 5 times, the most recently being in 2015.

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.”

Why See Alastair?
You Are Ready For Counselling If:
- You are tired of life being less than you think it can be
- You are struggling with a specific issue such as anger, anxiety or depression
- You feel that life is not changing or that your life is going in circles
- You want to understand yourself better
- You are thinking of making a significant life decision
You Are Not Ready For Counselling If:
- You want to avoid problems in your life
- You don’t want to create a happier, healthier and more joyous life
- You are afraid that you can be more than you are now
Are you ready for help?
The first step to creating a better life is to either:
- Book a FREE 15 minute phone consultation with me, or
- Book a Counselling Session.
I will send anyone who books in to see me today a FREE copy of my latest ebook “Five Shortcuts To a Happy, Long-Lasting Relationship” (value $9.99). This ebook contains many useful relationship tips and advice and is not available anywhere else!
Counselling is an investment in yourself. Spending a few hundred dollars now to improve your life can save you much stress and unhappiness in the future. Relationship counselling adds to your enjoyment of life as your life improves and you realize the fun, love and laughter you have been missing out on.
I charge $100 per session to help people improve their lives. People may stay in counselling for anything between 1 and 10-20 sessions. Usually people see considerable improvements in their lives in as little as four to eight sessions.
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.
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.

I am located at the Richardson Centre, 431 Lake Road, Takapuna, Auckland. There is plenty of parking available. If you are unable to get to Takapuna I also use Skype to provide online counselling for couples.
