Facilitator - MH101®

Hello. I relocated with my husband from the west of Scotland in 2011 and we now live on the beautiful Kāpiti Coast.

My background is in theatre and community arts, and while I loved performing, I got greater satisfaction from working with diverse groups, including prisoners and isolated seniors. I saw how creativity could light a spark in the darkest soul and help mend broken hearts.

I am now a counsellor with Skylight Trust, and also manage a wellbeing space for tāngata whai ora, so I'm fortunate to see lives change through connection and creativity.

When people learn together magic happens so I’m looking forward to my new role as a Blueprint for Learning facilitator.

Maintain your wellbeing

Even good change can cause stress and anxiety. It's okay if you're feeling mixed emotions about New Zealand's move to Level 1. Blueprint for Learning's new webinar Stress, Resilience and Wellbeing can help you with strategies to manage these feelings and your overall wellbeing.
