Brief Intervention Counsellor

Kathryn Daley is the Brief Intervention Counsellor who is at our Health Centre regularly. If you would like a referral to see Kathryn please talk to a doctor or nurse.

My name is Kathryn Daley, I am employed by RCPHO as a Brief Intervention Counsellor for the Hurunui District. I have a base in Amberley as well as making weekly and/or fortnightly visits to Amuri Community Health  Centre.  I provide 5 free sessions of brief counselling and also link people to other community supports. It is rewarding to be able to support people to identify strategies that are helpful in maintaining good mental health. Range of issues that people may come to see me about include the following: depression; anxiety; stress; drug and alcohol; communication and relationship issues. It is good to be able to offer this service to our rural communities. It has been particularly rewarding meeting with farmers and seeing the benefits to them, especially given the extra stress that drought has caused.  I value the opportunity to keep working  alongside local GP’s and health centre staff  in providing a high quality of holistic care to Hurunui families.

Community Ownership

  • The Amuri Community Health Centre is 100% owned by the ‘Amuri Community Trust’ a not for profit organisation.
  • Community ownership allows us to provide the best care in an ever changing environment and to attract the best health professionals.
  • The charitable status of the Health Centre also allows us to seek  funds which would not have been open to us under a traditional model.

Amuri Health reception area

Our building allows us to fit in with the Government's Primary Health Care Strategy of an integrated Health Centre, focusing on prevention rather than cure and keeping patients out of hospital.
Amuri Community Health Centre  is a Cornerstone accredited practice having met the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners standard for GP services as defined in 'aiming for excellence'.
