We have worked with many clients from all walks of life in New Zealand, and we are experienced in counselling, mentoring and coaching skills. See the section on “Counselling, mentoring, coaching – which is right for me?”
We use video technology as it is an effective way of communicating when we are in different geographical areas. Video takes out complete anonymity, and seeing each other face-to-face gives us a greater connection – a necessity for overcoming loneliness. We have details to use Zoom (no download needed) or to download Skype for free.
Sessions by appointment
We understand that everyone’s needs are different. Some people prefer to have discussions during the day, and others in the evening. We will make every effort to give you an appointment at a time that works for both you and your Loneliness NZ professional. In general, we can give appointments on some weekdays and evenings and some weekend daytimes.
See separate section on Registration and service fees. We give a free session to individuals on payment of a registration fee.
All counselling, mentoring and coaching relationships with Loneliness NZ are professional. However, part of the unique you at this unique point in your life, means you may benefit more from one professional style more than another.
So how do you know what’s right for you now? We suggest you read the very brief overview of these methods… and then in your first session we can discuss what has the greatest potential to help you.
As a charitable trust, Loneliness NZ relies primarily on donations, registration and service fees. We also rely on the enormous goodwill of professional people volunteering their time.

Loneliness NZ is a developing Trust with limited resources, and relies on the enormous goodwill of people volunteering their time. The website describes services Loneliness NZ aims to provide, and we will do our best to provide. However Loneliness NZ cannot undertake to deliver all these services, at all times. For example, we currently do not have any capability to provide services in any language than English; and we do not offer a 24/7 service or a crisis service.
If our current resources are insufficient to help you right now, we will let you know; and will keep in touch for when we can help you, and redirect you to other services which might be appropriate.
While we would like to help everyone in need, if we believe our services are not the right ones for you then we will let you know. Whilst we describe on the website the services Loneliness NZ aims to provide, there is no commitment on our part to deliver those services if we do not believe it is in your or our interest.
Loneliness NZ is a developing charitable trust. At this stage we rely entirely on donations, registration and service fees. For those not registered we will genuinely appreciate donations of any amount through our GiveALittle page or our bank account. Every donation helps our vision of conquering loneliness!
If you register with us your first session is free. Thereafter, we would appreciate that you donate a minimum of $30 per session through our bank account 06-0193-0830165-000, with your name. The intent is that you reciprocate for the help you will be receiving, at a cost considerably lower than market value of giving you help; and for us to feel valued.
Tax certificates – please request a tax certificate for donations if you are not registered with Loneliness NZ.
