Nigel Pizzini

Unitec
Lecturer
Waitakere, Auckland
Nigel Pizzini is a Narrative Therapist in private practice and lecturer in counselling at Unitec Institute of Technology, Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa New Zealand. Raised in the Waikato and with careers in youth work, education and therapy, grappling with biculturalism and honouring te Tiriti in social practice and education has long occupied his attention. Nigel worked as a school counsellor for 12 years in Rotorua and Auckland, building on prior work as a youth worker in Taumarunui and a Stopping Violence facilitator in Thames. Within each community, partnering with Tangata Whenua and respecting bicultural relations has been an important factor in his approach to this work. In 2017 he joined the teaching team at Unitec and aspires to contribute to the development of the next generation of social practitioners in Tāmaki Makaurau, Auckland and beyond.
