Jane Weggery

My name is Jane Weggery and I am both a qualified counsellor and qualified social worker. Currently I work as a counsellor three days a week at Compass Health, a Primary Health organisation where I work with young people and adults. I also offer Equine facilitated counselling, where horses partner with people in ground based activities to support people learn about themselves and grow – websites providing more information about this are; www.eagala.org and eponaquest.com/. My private practice is predominantly Equine facilitated work and I have the use of facilities in Pauatahanui and on the Kapiti Coast.
My work is Strength based and Solution Focused and I believe that people have the resources within themselves to effect change, the horses and I merely support people by facilitating the persons process and learning.

Strong skill base includes, networking, advocacy, political, social change, client-centred, strengths-based, Treaty of Waitangi, anti-oppressive practice and big fund-raisers.
I tend to work well with clients with DV, parenting, Mental Health, Work & Income issues, and not limited but prefer not to work with elderly or youth so much. And yet, I think family work may be an area of interest in the future.
