Noeleen Chaney

Councellor / Therapist

My name is Noeleen Chaney. I identify as a cis gender female, I am bisexual,  and use she / her pronouns. I am Irish and have been living and working in NZ for 18 years. I have always felt strongly about supporting people and challenging barriers. I was motivated to help people from a very young age and recall that I wanted to be a social worker from 12 years old. I have worked within the helping professions now for over twenty years, having trained initially in the UK with additional studies in Aotearoa. I started my career as a social worker specializing in Children and families and for the past 15 years have been a counselor. I completed extra study to become a CBT therapist and an EMDR practitioner. I have many areas of experience and interests including depression, anxiety, trauma, addictions, forensics, rainbow affirming counseling, motivational work and neurodiversity. My knowledge and skills have been deepened and  enhanced by my own lived experience of  ADHD, dyslexia, and other needs.  I work with individuals - both children and adults, whanau and group work. I also offer professional supervision. I practice as a self-employed counsellor / therapist and work both face to face and online.
