Getting to know the Counsellor

Hi, I'm Vicky Finlayson...

I was born in Wellington and life's travels led me to live in Auckland, then I moved from Auckland with my children in 2001 and have now called the Waikato home for over 17 years.  Some of the things I like to do are chilling out at the beach, walking my dog and gardening.

As a Member, Registered with the NZAC (NZ Association of Counsellors), I bring my own life experience alongside my training. I hold a Bachelor of Applied Social Science (Counselling) and experience in working with teenagers, youth and adults of all ages.  I am guided by the NZAC Code of Ethics and the Aotearoa New Zealand Privacy Act 1993.   Following our Code of Ethics, I undertake ongoing professional development in areas specific to counselling.  

Also, as mentioned elsewhere on this site, I wish to honour people's values, beliefs, culture, and the communities within which they live.  I am supported in this by te Tiriti o Waitangi, the Treaty of Waitangi, as it reminds me when honouring the uniqueness and diversity that is Aotearoa New Zealand, that counselling conversations are respectful to peoples way of life.
