Jennie Langridge


I offer a safe space where you will be seen, you will be heard, and you will feel aroha.  It is an honour to hear your story and through care, respect and a trusted relationship I hope to earn the right to hear it.  Making the first step forward and reaching out for support is really brave. When you are ready, I am here to help and together we can explore the struggles that you are facing. Honouring, your expertise over your lived-experiences, and utilising my skills, we can work in partnership, mana to mana, to discover a meaningful way forward, accessing your resources to meet challenges head on.

I am available face to face and online. Give me a call today and together we can make sense of your lived experiences; moving from a place of overwhelm to a place of hope.

  • Weave my skills with your expertise to navigate an individualised path forward.
  • Promote autonomy, empowering you to find your own inner strength.
  • Ensure confidentiality.
  • Uphold an ethical practice.
  • Cultivate an environment of honesty, reflection and calm.
  • And, embrace our time together.

About me:

Before qualifying as a counsellor, I have worked as a teacher and I have chaired a sporting organisation and coached netball from U21s to U12s.  I have been a volunteer at Youth line as a phone counsellor and as a group facilitator.  

I have four children ranging in age from 25 to 12 and my partner and I have recently become grandparents.  Family and friends nourish my soul, food is my passion, coffee is my indulgence, reading’s my jam and I love walking our local beaches with my two dogs.

Having lost my husband to cancer and having a child with a chronic illness I understand first-hand how life can throw you unexpected curve balls that can affect every facet of your life.  I weave my depth of lived experiences into my counselling.
