Kia ora, and welcome.

Ngā mihi maioha, warmest greetings to you.

We continue to face new and challenging circumstances both globally and in our own neighbourhoods.  During  short and long term lockdowns due to the spread of an unrelenting virus, or for other circumstances outside of our control, Planet Earth took a deep, deep breath as we lessened our hold on her.  Here in Aotearoa New Zealand many of us forced into slowness have had to take a deep breath too – for our mental, intellectual, spiritual, emotional and physical health and fortitude.

You will have heard about how other thought leaders, managers, business owners, colleagues, and friends have had a Coach to help them navigate complex challenges, and devise smart solutions.  You know that you have been ready to consider things from a different perspective, or make some positive, life affirming changes in your life. You also know that you can get there faster with someone – your Coach – at your side.

It is a complete myth to think that you have to do things alone.  And so, right now, standing at that fork in the road, let’s do this together.  As a professional and experienced Coach, I can meet you at this transition point; work with you to explore your progress through the personal and professional challenges you are encountering.  Let’s start now.

Coaching lights up your pathway – “Te Ara” – ahead, so you can create the change you want to see in your world, and face the future with confidence.  I am looking forward to working with you.
