Mike Coxon

Counsellor, Clinical Supervisor, & Life Coach

Thank you for your interest in counselling.  I am a qualified counsellor and experienced presenter. I have spent over fifteen years working and volunteering with community organisations and assisting with leadership training and development..

I offer counselling sessions to individual clients using Rational Emotional Behaviour Therapy, utilisation of Living Wisdom techniques, as well as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Narrative Therapy.  I have been a presenter for Living Wisdom, running Seminars and the Living Wisdom Mini School over the last 4 years.

I gained my Bachelor of Counselling through Bethlehem Tertiary Institute, a Postgraduate Certificate in Health Sciences (Alcohol and Drug Studies) from Auckland University and Certificate of Addiction and Mental Health Supervision.

I have also undertaken training with David Riddell and was the local presenter of his Living Wisdom Schools here in the Bay of Plenty.

My experience has seen me work for several years as a Drug and Alcohol Counsellor and Mental Health Worker in Tauranga, as a Registered Clincal Alcohol and Drug Practitioner with DAPAANZ (Addiction Practitioners’ Association Aotearoa-New Zealand).  I am also a full member and Supervisor for NZCCA (New Zealand Christian Counsellors Association), and a registered clinical supervisor for DAPAANZ.

After completing my studies I felt that I had made Tauranga my home, so decided to stay and enjoy the picturesque region and all it has to offer.

I have found Mike Coxon to be thoroughly competent in professional supervision. 

He is a good listener, offers meaningful insights, is down to earth and practical, and also is good at asking empowering questions. In addition to all this,  he is honest and demonstrates integrity.  

I would have no hesitation in recommending Mike’s services for professional supervision or counselling.

Paul

Pastoral Team Leader

I want to endorse and give my wholehearted support to Living Wisdom Bay of Plenty. There are two very important reasons for this choice. 

Firstly, Mike Coxon is an exceptionally gifted counsellor in all the best senses of the word. He is my personal counsellor who has helped me to see truth and freedom in ways I did not know were possible. 

Secondly, the Mini-School has been an extension of the personal counsel I have learnt from Mike and the Living Wisdom principals. 

The assumptions that have kept me from growing are now being challenged and truth is making a deep mark on my subconscious. I love renewing my mind and seeing the world with clearer awareness. 

Mike is a man integrity and pure heart. I believe he has the credibility and skills to support individuals and groups to transforming their minds while providing care and empathy. 

Do not hesitate to join him in the Mini-School or as client.

Kenneth

High School Teacher

I would list this course lead by Mike Coxon as Outstanding. 

Mike is a great communicator and has a very professional presentation and yet speaks from the heart with wisdom.  

There are many things that I will take away with me from this course but in order to help me put these things into practice and understand my feelings at times I will be saying to myself ...  WAIT - What Am I Thinking - and pray for understanding.

Steve

Director of Family Business

It helped me understand myself a lot more and the many areas I need to work on. 

It also gave me insight into understanding other people.

The type of counselling utilised in session addresses the key issues quickly and provides effective outcomes.​    This type of therapy helps to address the main underlining issues more quickly.  

As part of your counselling appointment, you will received a written summary of each session, that will highlight the key insights discussed to aid in your ongoing personal growth.
The Counselling model that I use offers flexibility across many of life’s issues.  This can include support for Relationships, Depression, Anger, Anxiety, Supervision, Work,  Habits,  Addictions, Children, Parenting, Goal Setting/ Career choices,  Self-harm, Grief, Sexuality, Self esteem and Post-traumatic stress 
Primarily I use Rational Emotional Behavioral Therapy (REBT), supported by my training and experience with Living Wisdom.  I am however just as comfortable with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Narrative, and Transactional Analysis (TA).
