Bob Cavanagh


Bob specialises in, and works full-time as a couples and relationship counsellor.  He uses 'Emotionally Focused Therapy' (EFT) that he has been studying, training in, and working since 2008.  He is internationally certified as an EFT therapist.

He is a member of the NZ Association of Counsellors (NZAC) and joined CPA as a director at the end of January 2011 after having his own practice in Pipitea St Thorndon for some years.

Bob’s clients are mostly couples who have somehow become disconnected, often through repeating patterns of bickering, fighting, withdrawing or having just grown apart.

Bob’s background includes 15 years in the Catholic Church, and over 20 years in business management and consulting. From 2004 he changed the focus on his work away from business - first towards individual counselling, including workplace EAP support and some coaching, and then to his specialising in couples, marriage and relationship counselling which he now does exclusively.

He completed 11 years of study in the church, including a Master’s Degree in Theology in Paris.  He has trained in different counselling modalities and brings a wide range of other learning, personal development and life experience to his work.
