Patron’s Message

Message from Our Patron










I chose to become Patron of Home and Family Counselling because I appreciate the importance of having supportive and functional family environments for our nation’s children.

In stressful times, having access to counselling may enable parents, couples and children to not only cope with their current situation, but also emerge stronger and more able to deal with future problems that may arise. I am sure that will be a great comfort for many people to know that these services are provided on a donation-only basis, and this will make them more likely to seek the help that they need.

I wish staff, supporters and volunteers of Home and Family Counselling all the very best with your valuable work in our communities.

The Rt Hon Dame Patsy Reddy

Governor-General of New Zealand
