Sharmila Pathak


Kia ora,

I am NZAC Registered Counsellor with over 12 years of experience working with youth and adults from all walks of life dealing with various issues.


Counselling Approach

My approach is focused on building therapeutic relationships accepting and honouring where my clients are on their life journey.  I have a passion for discovering the potential in my clients and enabling them to recognise strengths in themselves.

I am originally from India and have been living in New Zealand for the last 27 years. I am open-minded, have a natural ability to listen to my clients and learn about my client’s worldview, work with my client and be fully present during the counselling session.

I believe we all know deep down in our hearts what we really want in our life, where we want to be and where we want to go from A to B. We don’t want someone to judge us or give us their opinion on what we should do.

We want someone to listen, care without judging and be there for that moment; even if that moment might be silent, there is someone who is there to listen without judging us.
