Marta Fisch

Therapist & Counsellor

A trusted therapist & counsellor serving Auckland & Waiheke Island for 20 years.

You’ll like yourself more and find greater ease in relationships, within just a few sessions. I use my 20 years’ experience and master’s level knowledge to assist individuals, couples and families to chart a course towards free and creative ways of being with themselves.


Why I get results

I bring to my work a strong theoretical basis combined with humour and a commitment to growth and freedom from past wounding.

I look for health, for hope, for the intention to love and connect that can sometimes be misunderstood or hidden. I bring out those intentions to connect, and healing follows.

I enjoy working with adults, children, youth, individuals, couples and families.

Q Testimonials

"I never got around to thanking you enough for what you did & for making me the strong person that I am today. You are an amazing, insightful person & ever so patient! Thanks to you I can be myself again." -YD

"D and I got married a couple of weeks ago! We're very happy and it's in no small part down to you. Thank you :)" -L

"Our daughter is still remarkably 'lighter'. She still has her teenage moments of course, but she seems to be carrying less hurt and anger around with her and is a lot more forgiving of us and our 'parent-y' ways. I cannot thank you enough for having connected with her and releasing some of the pressure for her." - N.O.

Espero que mucha mas gente vaya a verte, porque te encuentro fantastica y a mi me ayudaste muchisimo! aprovecho de darte las gracias y de decirte que me siento increible y que la vida me ha cambiado mucho, y para mejor! muy agradecida de el trabajo que hicimos juntas! Un Abrazo Marta! -CM

“Marta was respectful of each and every person in our group. She has a fantastic ability to retain information given by the group. Her realness about family and the environment around them made her an effective teacher.”

"I have been seeing Marta Fisch for the last three years, both as an individual (suffering from anxiety and depression) and with my spouse. Ms. Fisch is an abundantly empathic, compassionate and authentic human being, who brings to her work enormous intelligence, humor, insight and wisdom. I am immeasurably grateful to her and hope many others may be blessed by her guidance." A.B.
