Isabel Vestal


Kia ora,

My name is Isabel, I identify as a New Zealand cisgender female (she/her) and was raised on the Kapiti coast.

I studied a Bachelor of Social Work at Otago in Dunedin before moving back to Wellington to work.

My career started in Dunedin where I was a caseworker for teenagers at a youth service.

When I returned to Wellington I was a caseworker at a residential drug and alcohol service and was privileged to work with people in recovery.

I moved to the Mauri Ora team as I enjoy working with youth and young adults, and like to create a safe comfortable environment for people to express their needs.

I mostly use counselling styles of Motivational Interviewing and CBT and like to be goal orientated. I am registered with NZSWRB.

Outside of work I like being social with friends, seeing theatre and comedy shows, playing netball, and love music.
