I am a Certified Havening Techniques® Practitioner and have been in health care since 1982, first as a nurse (general and psychiatric), and for 32 years as a registered midwife. I am a reflexologist, mindfulness life couch and meditation instructor as well as a co-counsellor. After my PhD, focused on experiences of being at birth, I hold a university professorial role leading-research projects examining people’s experiences of health and social care. My main focus has been on psychosocial, cultural, spiritual, and emotional wellness. Havening is integrating all that I have learnt and experienced across my life. I am happy to work with people in person in New Zealand or online from anywhere. My focus is helping others self-actualise and reach their full potential. Although I do have a special focus on childbirth trauma, fear of childbirth, medical phobias, and birth preparation, I am more than happy to work with anyone who seeks Havening as a way to self-heal those aspects of their lives that impede flourishing and prevent building their resilience. For childbirth related issues I provide a comprehensive childbirth debrief on request and havening techniques as indicated – the intention of these childbirth sessions is to move you from feeling bereft and powerlessness to one of empowerment and buoyancy. I look forward to meeting and working with you.

Birth trauma and separation from her baby

That session you did on the birth has helped in the yearning and aching feelings I've had for my daughter, so grateful, I don't feel the aftermath like I did. Thank you for the work you did, very helpful in some big stuff that has been around for a long time. (Daughter now in her 20s)
