Ark Essentials

Professional Christian counselling service

Hi There

It is so nice to see you. Thank you for clicking into my website. I hope you will find all the information you need to decide if I am the right person to embark on this journey with you, but if you do not, feel free to reach out. I would love to answer any questions you may have.

Christian counsellor based on the Hibiscus coast of Auckland, NZ.

*Registered with I AM HOPE for funding for teenagers*
 I specialise in working with teenagers, young adults, mothers and parents.

As a counsellor I highly value your worth as a human being. In a safe counselling environment, where you feel accepted and validated, we can talk about the things that are causing you stress and overwhelm.
You will be able to explore your thoughts, emotions and behaviours and we we will work together to establish goals that align with your values. We will also explore strategies and tools that may support you to reach these goals, practicing and troubleshooting together.

My approach

I work in a friendly and down-to-earth manner, supporting my clients to feel as comfortable as possible discussing their challenges with me. My aim is to support you to reach your goals and to feel empowered by the counselling process. I work from a Christian perspective while drawing on various therapeutic approaches including ACT, person-centered and DBT.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to book an appointment. I am happy to chat about your reasons for seeking counselling and whether I will be able to support you. OR 0274147075 (Whatsapp also available)

Hi, I'm Penny-Laine Calitz

Christian mommy to two gorgeous kids, registered counsellor and founder of Ark Essentials. I discovered my passion to help people in an impactful way in 2018. I decided to study to become a counsellor so that I would know how to support the people who trust me with their stories with therapeutic approaches that work. As I grew older I became more and more aware of the unique way that God created me and this passion in my heart made more and more sense. I registered as a counsellor in South Africa in 2015 and in New Zealand in 2018.
