Abigail Buchhalter

Counsellor

I am excited to be a part of the NZAF Health Services team in Wellington, and to provide compassion and support for those in need of counselling.

Originally from the United States, I completed my counselling training in Scotland, and have spent time working back in the U.S. before moving to New Zealand in 2017. I believe that the basis for constructive counselling work lies in the relationship between counsellor and client, which must be based on a foundation of empathy, compassion, and genuine presence. I look forward to supporting those living with HIV, as well as their whānau, friends, and any others affected by HIV.
