Dee Rieger, Specialist in Humanology
Counsellor, Life Coach, Personal Trainer
Hi, I am Dee...
I offer Counselling, Life Coaching, and Personal Training in person in Auckland, and by Skype everywhere else. I have focused conversations with others that lead to alternative perspectives, new ideas, and more opportunities.
It is my privilege to provide a confidential, encouraging, and supportive environment where you can explore your thoughts to gain personal understanding, insight, and direction.
At times life is really challenging and clarity is difficult to find, but it is possible in a private, accepting, and supportive environment where thoughts can be explored fully, without interruption.
Talking gives life to values, beliefs, expectations, memories and future ideals, and here is where perspective and solutions can be found.
Being heard fully is a truly powerful and energizing experience.
What I do
I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor, Life Coach, and Exercise Specialist working with individuals, couples, families, and children. My major interest is helping others to build fulfilling relationships, develop effective communication skills and connect with who they are.
I have a passion for integrating knowledge and practice from the experience and science of psychology, physiology, and philosophy. I work toward creating ‘Synergy’ between the mind and body and am energized when I am supporting others to reach any goals, it is more than just what I do, it is how I live.
There is also a great deal of fulfillment for me in working with families to help build strong positive parent and child interaction and bonding, or I can work with children on their own to help them manage emotion and behaviour.
We can take a flexible approach - determined by your pace and comfort, or use one of my programs that works on various areas of personal development such as self-awareness, anger, grief, trauma, relationships, communication, and goals.
Either way, we will be focused on achieving the changes you seek.
I provide meetings in person in Auckland, and on Skype everywhere else. My practice is based in Grey Lynn and also on the north shore of Auckland, and there is also private space available in Avondale, St Heliers, and Titirangi. Or join me on a 'Walk and Talk' experience in various outdoor locations throughout central and north Auckland.
I hold a current Annual Practicing Certificate from the NZ Association of Counsellors, am employed as a Crisis Support Counsellor for the Auckland Help Foundation, have been a volunteer counsellor for The Salvation Army since 2013, and have also joined the Fillan Healthcare group of practitioners.
