What is Rongoā Māori support service? 
Ensuring people are happy and healthy at work is the core purpose of the EAP Services programme. Ensuring that people have access to cultural support is also important. Understanding different world views on health and wellbeing is vital and while western medical customs have a place in the healing process, so so does traditional medicine. Our Rongoā Māori Support Services is focused on providing Māori counsellors for Māori clients. If you are looking for more of a traditional approach to health and wellbeing we are able to provide Rongoā Māori Support Services.
