Russell Vant

Bachelor of Counselling (BCouns)

Member, New Zealand Association of Counsellors (MNZAC)


I was born and raised in Hamilton and have a background in mechanical engineering and military service.

From 2010 to 2015 I travelled extensively – an in depth exploration of communication and relationships, experiential psychology and meditation. Upon returning to New Zealand I began a three year programme of counsellor training, completing a Bachelor of Counselling at the end of 2017.

I work four days a week as a counsellor at the Massey University Student Counselling Centre, and work from Featherston St in the Wellington CBD on Mondays. I continue to be well supported in my professional development, and am beginning the process of extending my training as a psychotherapist.
