Carina Allen

Facilitator - MH101®

My journey over the last decade in the area of mental health has seen me working with individuals and groups, and in a range of roles and settings but always with the same purpose – to deepen understanding. I am passionate about the idea of people finding value in their experience as well as their contributions.

Facilitating for Blueprint for Learning gives me the opportunity to deliver a programme that aligns with my values, a programme I can deliver confidently, knowing that the information proffered, as well as the delivery style, reflects current best practice and research.

Alongside my facilitator role at Blueprint for Learning, I am a children’s counselor at Atareira, a peer supporter on The Piki Project, a business owner and operator at The Zen Division and a founding member of ATLEN (Aotearoa Therapists with Lived Experience Network: Empowering therapists who wear two lenses), amongst other things.

I dance whenever I can (in-car dancing included), for, ‘While I dance I cannot judge, I cannot hate, I cannot separate myself form life. I can only be joyful and whole. That is why I dance.’
