Thrive te pae ora is a free face to face professional counselling service for young people (rangatahi) aged 12 to 24 and their family (whānau) living in the lower South Island. It’s safe, non-judgemental and completely confidential. We offer one to six sessions of coaching, talking and problem solving to help you cope with life's ups and downs. We focus on helping you build skills to manage mental health difficulties or substance use. Our aim is to improve your overall wellbeing by enhancing the qualities you already have, so you can bounce back more easily in the future.
