About Me:

Hello! My name is Ashley Cairns and I am the founder behind A Change for Better. I provide numerous services helping people with personal development, wellness, and problem solving. For over 15 years now, I have been working in the Mental Health and Community Services sectors in New Zealand, the United States, and Canada. I hold a Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Both were achieved in New York with honors. I am a provisional member of NZAC and a full member of ACA.

Counseling Approach:

I have dedicated my career to helping others better understand themselves so they can achieve success. People choose to attend counselling when they are looking for answers to life problems. I excel at helping you come up with the answers to these questions. My approach to helping people involves using person-centered and solution-focused therapy techniques. This helps me to gain a better understanding of what’s going on. We put solutions in place to help you overcome your problems. I enjoy working with people from various backgrounds and facing numerous challenges. This is my passion, my drive, and my energy. It’s what gets me out of bed in the morning, and what makes me so driven.
