Counsellor

Ajita Grace Counselling

Thames, New Zealand

I am a counsellor working in Thames NZ with 10 years of experience working in community groups and now in private practice. I offer expertise in mindfulness, trauma, anxiety, meditation, women’s psychology and spirituality. ​ I offer a person-centred and strength-based approach, focusing on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (Mindfulness CBT). In my years of counselling, mindfulness has proven to be powerful yet a gentle healing practice in supporting my clients to connect to their own sources of strength and healing. I have practised both Eastern and Western meditative practices over the past 40 years. I have studied with Buddhist teachers since 2005 and have been greatly inspired by the teachings of Adyashanti and Tara Brach. Buddhist psychology has added a depth of wisdom to the mindfulness interventions I use in my counselling practice.

Hi, I am Ajita!

My clinical approach is client centred and strength based. I am an ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) therapist. I specialise in mindfulness based counselling. Mindfulness-Based Counselling is a unique form of counselling for healing and growth. It is extremely helpful in opening you to insights and new perspectives, easing the suffering of life transitions, and getting in touch with your authentic self. ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) is a mindfulness cognitive behavioural therapy that allows you to accept your internal experiences mindfully and compassionately. At the same time, you gain the clarity needed to know and act on your deepest values.
Bachelor of Social Sciences (Psychology) at Waikato University – 1986
Graduate Diploma in Counselling at Northtec – 2013
