Crista Schorr-Kon


Knowledge is power – If you’re struggling, then knowledge about yourself will give you the power to change. I work with you on understanding yourself – both in and out of your relationships. I also supervise people in the health professions; mental health, nursing, social work etc. I only see individuals.


I see people with a wide range of issues including:

  • stress/overwhelm
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • self-worth
  • grief
  • social isolation
  • mistrust
  • trauma
  • mid-life transitions
  • parenting children with special needs
  • relationship issues
  • separations and divorce


Counselling/Therapy Services

If you are frustrated with repeating old patterns of behaving and feeling, then psychotherapy can make a big difference to your life. I am also interested in helping people make meaning of themselves and their lives. Working on a deeper level provides permanent change.


Counselling/Therapy Approach

Relational psychotherapy: I am a warm and open person and aim to provide an environment in which we can build trust. Here we take time to understand the root causes, what is going on and what is going wrong. The psychotherapeutic relationship enables you to see things from a new perspective and make different choices.


Background and Experience

My dissertation topic was Intuition as I am interested in the things we sense and know about each other without being told.

My work as a psychotherapist includes: Family Action, Te Atatu working with trauma-related symptoms, domestic violence and sexual abuse; AUT Psychotherapy Clinic; and my private practice, working with depression, anxiety, OCD, relationship difficulties and general overwhelm

I have also been a support worker at Affinity Services, supporting clients in the community with depression, psychosis and anxiety, and have worked at Parent 2 Parent supporting parents of children with disabilities.

I am a New Zealander who spent my early adulthood living overseas in different cultures.
