Vic Hathaway



From May - August 2022 I am offering online appointments only. I will be back in my Ponsonby office from mid August.


I am a fully qualified, mature counsellor who works with people from all ages and stages in life. I work in Ponsonby. With a Masters degree in therapy, I use a range of methods and researched-based modalities to help you with whatever you are struggling with.


Areas of Special Interest:

  • trauma
  • sexual abuse
  • relationship difficulties
  • anxiety
  • life changes
  • stress & burnout
  • loss & grief


Counselling Services

I am a practical and empathetic counsellor who likes to resource clients useful tools to help them see changes. With a background in both teaching and Guidance Counselling, I enjoy working with a wide range of clients of any age or stage in life.

As an ACC registered counsellor I am available to work with those needing ongoing support in the area of sexual abuse.

I’m happy to work with parents and children together, as well as couples.


Counselling Approach

I work from a mix of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) – both are counselling models that encourage self-compassion and acceptance, along with a practical element of moving towards goals in life that are meaningful to you. I am also currently training as an EMDR therapist.
