Kia ora and welcome to Motueka High School Counselling Service

Below is a form that you can fill out to get counselling services for yourself, a friend, or any student currently enrolled in Motueka High School. 

We work alongside multiple agencies and counsellors in the community to offer specialist and professional help.  No issue is too complex for us. 

Here at Te Whare Pora (the counselling rooms located beside the school on Whakarewa St), we are a friendly, caring, inclusive and non-judgemental resource for students to access.   We offer you counselling in a safe, confidential, and private environment.

Thank you for taking the first step in helping someone else or yourself.

If you require emergency assistance, please dial 111.  

If you require mental health services or need help for a student at risk, please ring the CAMHS Crisis Team - (03) 546 1800 and ask for the CAMHS on-call crisis worker or call 111.
