Get Help

Te Whakaora is committed to providing long term emotional, spiritual and practical support so you can create a better future for you and your children. Broken relationships are often an underlying cause of family dysfunction, which is why Te Whakaora offers a Family Restoration Course, in-home Whānau Coaching, practical advice, and support in overcoming addictions. We can also help you navigate your way through government systems and departments such as WINZ, CYF, Family Court, Corrections and Parole Board. On this journey with us, you'll discover why you make the same mistakes over and over again and learn how you can break the cycle of brokenness in your own family.


Where to start

Our Family Restoration Course focuses on identifying and working through the root causes of trauma in our lives. These past traumatic events cause us to act in certain ways and keep us from living a full and good life. Through the five sessions on the course, we talk about relationships, emotions and root issues. We address suicidal thoughts, depression and share about forgiveness, intimacy and love languages.

This free, five session course will help you to start healing and become the role model your children and grandchildren need. The Auckland course is delivered over two and a half weeks running on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and the Far North course in Kaitaia is over five weeks, running every Tuesday morning. Sessions start at 10am and finish at 1pm with a break for morning tea.

We encourage everyone to complete our Family Restoration Course before engaging in our whānau coaching and mentoring programmes.

Who can come

We support and work with parents aged 18yrs to 65yrs. You qualify for our support if you feel there is no way out of your situation and you're worried you might harm yourself or others. Your children may have been removed by Oranga Tamariki, you may have a court case pending, or you're at the lowest point in your life. You can contact us yourself, or be referred by a community agency or health service.

There is Hope

If wanting help to turn your life around and create a brighter future for your children, we would love to hear from you.
