My Story

I live at Whangarei Heads, a beautiful spot with access to bush, hiking tracks, harbour and coastline, in the North of New Zealand.

I have enjoyed over 30 years teaching in primary schools, in mainstream and in special education. Along the way, I developed a strong belief in the need to help children and young people to value themselves and each other, to discover and accept their own way of being, continually growing towards their highest potential, with confidence and resilience.

In 2012, I found a way to recover from 14 years of chronic stress, fatigue and illness, with visualisation and self-coaching. This led me to explore other techniques and I eventually discovered EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), otherwise known as Tapping or EFT Tapping.

I was drawn to the way EFT teaches us to accept, understand and process feelings and thoughts, something I had not experienced growing up. EFT helped me to start developing emotional wellbeing and freedom, and I am learning to be myself at last.

I am now a certified EFT practitioner, a certified Matrix Reimprinting practitioner and work online and in person, using and teaching these techniques.

I help adults and children to manage stress and grow self-worth, confidence and resilience.

I guide people to the freedom to be themselves, to grow towards their highest potential and to welcome positive change in any area of their lives.

My Specialities

Helping people of all ages to …

  • Develop a natural, healthy relationship with their feelings and thoughts

  • Become aware of and release unprocessed feelings, thoughts and beliefs

  • Grow their self-awareness, self-acceptance, self-worth and learn to be themselves

  • Use basic EFT Tapping themselves, amidst everyday challenges

  • Use music and videos to make learning EFT Tapping fun for children, parents, caregivers and teachers

I can see you online with Zoom (works brilliantly, as if we were together in the same room, and is easy and free to download), and in person in Whangarei City or at my home in McLeod Bay.
