Born and raised in Wellington, I now call Hamilton my home. That being said, my bones are from Northern Ireland and I look forward to someday, once safe travel is an option again, visiting the country my Great Nan emmigrated from in 1926.
I’m Adele Arleith, owner of Empowering You Counselling. My surname means “unique” and I proudly carry this name, and love discovering the uniqueness of each person that walks through my door. I have been a practicing counsellor since late 2015 and have developed a passion for working with people of all ages who are facing challenges that hold them back from living their best life.
I have a Bachelor of Counselling and am currently working to complete a Master of Professional Practice with an endorsement in Counselling. I am MNZCCA registered with the New Zealand Christian Counsellors Association, and I follow the NZCCA Code of Ethics.
On a personal level I am a wife, flatmate, friend, and mother to furr babies (cats presently but looking to add more to the household). In my spare time I enjoy photography, painting, scrapbooking, and relaxing with one or two close friends.
