... some words about me ...
I am passionate about stopping the human slide into depression, and about improving adverse mental health at a grassroots level by bolstering adaptability, teaching greater flexibility, increasing mindfulness and facilitating greater self-care and compassion.
My work helps women and men reclaim their lives, get sorted, learn new coping skills and re-find their feet. They remember how to be themselves, to live consciously, to hear their own voice, to understand their relationships and take their place in the world.
It is my hope that those I work with will go on to share what they have learned with their children - thereby slowly filling the world with children who have learned to do the same.
I have experience as: a woman, sister, daughter, wife, parent, aunty, friend, listener, carer, and therapist (13 years), coach, trainer, facilitator, multi-national citizen, PND survivor, ex corporate-world worker (12 years), foreigner, student, volunteer, writer ...
I am inspired by learning, listening, caring, growing, searching, understanding, analysing, wondering, opening, evolving, connecting, laughing, sharing, advancing, finding, letting go, helping, encouraging, holding, letting be, examining beliefs, updating coping skills and moving forward into the light
I was born in New Zealand and it remains close to my heart and soul. I have just spent eight years living and working in Paris, France. I now live and work in Sydney, Australia.
