Roimata Young

You deserve to live a happy existence, and to reach your dreams and aspirations.

Waking up in the morning and feeling the heavy burden of the issue, can be tough. It is an extra thing that you have to deal with on top of everything else. It could be something which is invisible to those around you, and it might be hard for them to understand what you are going through. This can lead to feelings of loss, hopelessness, anger, shame and confusion.

Sharing and feeling heard in the right space is important. It allows the heaviness of the issue to be shifted – taken off you and put to the side (maybe onto a shelf or in a little cart) where it can be looked at from a different place. Over time, this space allows for you to start to tell your story in a way which is empowering of you.

This is the space I aim to create for you.


I have been working as a counsellor since 2014. I draw on a range of different approaches, including; narrative therapy, multi-systemic family therapy, motivational interviewing, solutions-focussed, te Whare Tapa Whā, and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT Tapping). Most importantly, I create therapeutic relationships which are supportive, respectful, and embracing of diversity.

I include EFT Tapping within therapy sessions as this helps to relieve stress, provide relief, and to promote healing. EFT Tapping is easy to do and we will go at a pace which is right for you. This technique involves you applying gentle repetitive pressure on specific points around the face, upper body and hands while discussing concern you would like to work through in our session. EFT Tapping will provide you with a practical tool which you will then be able to use yourself whenever you are feeling stressed.
