I am a husband and father of two adolescent children. 

I migrated into New Zealand from Korea in 1997.

I have worked as a social worker  in different fields such as ADHB Starship Community ServiceOranga Tamariki and Mental Health NGO  and have been a qualified Family Therapy practitioner and Counsellor since November 2012. When I worked in several social services for last more than 20 years , I have developed a deep desire to work for parents and caregivers, enabling them to become strong enough to provide a healthy environment for their children and help them to be pillars of the family.

Currently, I work at Kia Puāwai/Youth Ho​rizons Trust as a practice leader in First Care Team and, in the past, worked there as a Functional Family Therapist. I am also  an accredited provider for Level 4 (Standard Triple P, Triple P Teen, Stepping Stone) and Level 5 (Enhanced Triple P, Pathway Triple P) Triple P Parenting programs.

In addition, I am a full member of Aotearoa New Zealand Association of Social Workers (ANZASW), NZ Association of Family Therapy (NZAFT), NZ Association of Counsellors (NZAC), and a registered Social Worker of NZ  (Registration No. 2668).

With a strong passion to help families restore their relationships, my desire is to see that children and young people build strong self-esteem and release their potential. I would like to be part of your journey and look forward to working with you in future.

With warm regards,

Won-Kon Bong
