Phoenix House was established in Waitakere City in 1986, the first private counselling and psychotherapy practice in West Auckland, founded on principles of professionalism and integrity.

For three decades we have worked as individual therapists in a team practice, which currently consists of four partners and a number of associates. Our sense of collegiality is very important to us and is the essence of the longevity of Phoenix House.

We continue to offer high quality professional counselling and psychotherapy not only for local residents but also for people of the greater Auckland region.
