About Me

Kia ora, I'm Liz

My parents were Hungarian and I was born in England.  As a young adult I worked in private business/administration. However, I have always loved working with people, and believed in people’s ability to achieve for themselves. This led to qualify as an Occupational Therapist in 1995, with a variety of roles in the UK and NZ, working in mental health, an eating disorder service, hospice and neurological rehabilitation for over 18 years.

We moved to New Zealand in 2003. I have worked as a counsellor since 2012, as a School Guidance Counsellor, ACC Counsellor, EAP, including District Councils and in private practice.

I am a Life Coach since 2005 and have facilitated workshops and teach various subjects at Community Education Whangarei - Adult Education.

I have experienced counselling, coaching, creative therapies, movement and meditation practices on a number of occasions, still do and know how it can enrich life.

I am married to a lovely Scottish man. I love anything to do with water, enjoy Rock'n'Roll, Ceroc, walking, African drumming and am curious enough to try most things.

I have a strong practice of wellbeing and have practiced yoga for a number of years, resulting in my being a yoga teacher. I hold gratitude for the privileges that enables me to have the life I have.

Would love to hear from you
