Hi, I’m Kristy. My passion is natural health and wellbeing.

I began my journey at age 19 studying holistic massage and then homeopathy, learning that the mind, emotions and physical body are intrinsically linked. The physical body indicating when the emotional body is out of balance.

I have always been very active physically and then one day I tried yoga and discovered the magic it held. I started to feel the benefits off my mat in my everyday life and decided I wanted to share this magic with others. So, three years ago I completed my yoga teacher training, learning a safe sustainable form of yoga which is accessible to all bodies and ages.

Through the yogic practice of pranayama (breathing techniques), physical asana and mindfulness we can slow down, turn our gaze inward to connect with how we are feeling and in turn unlock what emotions are stored in our physical body.

I love the physical vinyasa flow, connecting movement with breath, finding strength and flow, lightness and adaptability. Skills we can take off the mat and use in our everyday life.

I also have a strong love of Yin yoga. Life is so busy these days we all need time to stop, slow down and connect to how we are feeling. Yin yoga creates the space for our body to soften, to open, to surrender as we allow the letting go of what no longer serves us. This is the balance of life the yin and the yang.

Come and join me on the mat as I take you on a journey inward.

You will also find me in my Align clinic at Kia Kaha Studios offering my services of massage, homeopathy, yoga therapy and doTERRA essential oils.

Come visit me soon.

PSYCHOLOGIST

Often we can struggle at times to reach out for psychological support. It can initially feel like a daunting prospect, but seeing a psychologist can be an extremely supportive and enlightening experience, helping you to feel better and enjoy life. It is a brave decision to seek counselling, and it is completely normal to feel anxious and unsure of what to expect. It is my job to make you feel safe and supported by providing a comfortable and trusting environment, enabling us to work through the issues and achieve your goals. My approach combines professionalism, honesty, warmth and humour, without judgement. I work with adolescents and adults.

Hailing from Aotearoa, I completed a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Psychology and English at Otago University, New Zealand, followed by an Honours Degree in Psychology at Victoria University, New Zealand. I have lived in New Zealand, Dublin, London, Melbourne and Singapore, having returned to New Zealand permanently in late 2017. My passion for different cultures, food, people and experiences, has given me the ability to relate to people from all walks of life, diverse cultures and backgrounds.

I have been counselling for more than twelve years in a variety of settings; private, company, and schools. I have extensive experience working with both adolescents and adults, and enjoy drawing from a wide range of psychological approaches. I draw on a range of therapy approaches, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focussed Therapy, and most recently EMDR Therapy.

I am experienced in the following areas:

  • Depression and mood related issues
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship issues
  • Stress management
  • Anger management
  • Grief and loss
  • Sexuality
  • Self esteem and confidence
  • IVF and infertility
  • Maternal mental health

I like to take a holistic approach to mental health and wellbeing, exploring lifestyle and health, as well as emotional factors. I aim to provide you with the tools to make positive changes, to tackle your issues through self discovery and reflection, and to feel more empowered. I strive to help people discover or reconnect with their passions, and support them to live life to the fullest, whilst being able to make room and cope with unpleasant emotions when they arise. After all, they are part of life.
