FREE AND CONFIDENTIAL SUPPORT FOR UNDER 25’S
Our staff are real people who have relevant life experiences. They genuinely care and are qualified to support you in talking about your concerns.

WE ARE FAMILY FRIENDLY
At Get Smart we know how important whānau is and you are welcome to bring your family to your sessions. Sometimes people choose to have family come for just the first part of a session or they can stay throughout.
Its up to you, and you can talk to your counsellor about whether involving your whānau is right for you.
We welcome children too and have toys for your little ones to play with during your sessions.
