offer for counselling

Last week Sinead Looney came into the Shed and spoke with some of the members at lunchtime. (Her Dad is a member of a Men’s Shed in Ireland).
As a trainee counsellor Sinead is offering Shed members free private discussion sessions at the Shed - members are welcome to discuss any issues they may be facing including retirement, health, loss, bereavement, family issues, problem children/grandchildren, etc.
In her own words:
My name is Sinead Looney. I grew up in Ireland and moved to NZ in 2008.
At the moment I am a student at Unitec working towards a Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling. I am a student member of NZAC (New Zealand Association of Counsellors).
What is Counselling?
Counselling offers a safe and supportive place to come and talk about anything that is on your mind. We talk about what YOU want to talk about, with no interruptions - the time is all yours and it’s strictly confidential.
Please feel free to contact me to make an appointment - I will be available at the Men’s Shed North Shore on Wednesdays and Saturdays”

Ph: 021 0230 7119

 Members are encouraged to take advantage of Sinead’s generous offer to discuss what may seem to be minor issues as well as anything major. Sometimes all we need is for someone to just listen and be supportive without being judgemental or patronizing.
I have some relationship & grandchildren (?!) issues I would like to voice with Sinead.....
