Tararua Community Services. Whanau Family Support. Kia Ora Koutou, I enjoy sharing laughter and knowledge with others and consider learning to be a lifelong process that supports the building of strong communities. I am a Pākehā woman with Irish roots, who grew up in South Taranaki. After many years working in various positions in the education sector, I left Wellington a few years ago to return to small town living. I love living a relatively quiet life in Woodville and enjoy working here at ‘The Trust’ in a family support role. I have particular experience in supporting children and parents and I am available to walk alongside you whatever your journey may be. I am a passionate advocate for women and children. I love this job and this wee community. Feel free to come in and meet me…oh and I love coffee! Individual: Drawing on a range of parenting theories, we can individualise our support to help meet your family needs. This can include supporting you to raise children with complex and challenging behaviour that can make it really hard to cope. Triple P Discussion Groups: Bringing a group of parents/caregivers together who are experiencing similar issues can provide a huge support. We cover topics like ‘Managing Fighting & Aggression’, ‘Dealing with Disobedience’, ‘Bedtime Routines’ and ‘Hassle-Free Shopping with Kids’. The Incredible Years: This programme involves parents attending fun, interactive weekly group sessions. The sessions are during school terms and involve plenty of time to discuss and practice new ways to manage children’s challenging behaviour, get ideas for growing positive social skills in children, and find ways to enhance relationships in families.

Youthline. Everyone has difficult experiences or feelings, and it can be tough to deal with them alone. Work one-on-one with a trained professional in a confidential and safe environment. Gerben believes in helping people to discover and look after what is important to them by finding out what’s not working for them, and what they might like instead. He loves to hear about what people are good at and what they have learned in their own lives to see how those things can help them as they find their way forward. Gerben has trained in Person-Centred Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). More Information
