Professional, open, honest, respectful and respected, a safe and trustful relationship where I am treated as an equal.
The Seasons for Growth Programme is an awesome way for children to help to cope with things that happen. One happy Mum.
Great deliverance. I think how they are as people – calm, gentle, and genuine – helped get the message across. The children could easily relate to them and because of their appearance and mannerisms the children found it a lot easier to trust them.
Te Hapara Family Services professionals came highly qualified but more importantly with a whānau focus. Their kaupapa understood that this mindset was key to whānau succeeding.
Te Hapara Family Services provided counselling and social work for both mum and her 12-year-old son. Over the weeks I noticed a dramatic change in the boy. He was less confrontational, more interactive, and, more importantly, the violence stopped. Mum also changed in the way she spoke and interacted with her son. When an argument started they both were able to quickly de-escalate the interaction by valuing each other’s perspectives.
Te Hapara Family Services brought professionals into their practice to run women’s support groups and provide training to their current staff. A key practice proving they want to provide a quality service for families.
The true success of Te Hapara Family Services lies in the many families who are currently living healthier ‘normals’ because of the support provided by the committed staff at Te Hapara Family Services.
Committed services like Te Hapara Family Services are key to preventing harm within the lives of our children and their families. Overall it is about saving lives.
