What do you do in your role?

I am a health coach at Tuwharetoa Health. My role here is to walk alongside whanau of all ages as they embark on their hauora journey. Whanau come to me with their health and wellbeing aspirations, and we work together to create a plan that is sustainable and achievable. Using Te Whare Tapa Wha, we look at all areas of health including te taha tinana, te taha wairua, te taha hinengaro and te taha whanau. To access our service, you can be referred to me or you can also self-refer yourself.

Getting out in the community, making connections and being able to support whanau where I can.
