About me

I have experienced many changes in my life, both planned and unplanned. I have moved countries, had different careers, was a very young mother who was determined to complete my university degree, and been divorced. These are just the big ones.

I prefer staying in my comfort zone but also regularly seek growth and challenges. Because I prefer growth to sitting still, I’ve done lots of research to learn how to manage transitions effectively as well as managing the pain and discomfort. When the going got really tough, I sought the guidance of a coach or mentor. I’ve become through experience, guidance and extensive study, a bit of a change specialist.

I am passionate about inspiring others to live to their full potential. I have been a natural health therapist for over 28 years, actively involved in health and education. For the last 10 years I have focused on coaching and mentoring clients to experience wellness, mindfulness and awareness. More recently I qualified as a positive psychology coaching practitioner to deepen my knowledge and skills.

I am also passionate about promoting positive ageing, and am a trustee of the Third Age Foundation. Based on the principles of Positive Psychology we support flourishing groups in New Zealand and the development of positive mindsets around age.

I am qualified as a Wellness Coach, Positive Psychology Practitioner and Senior Enhances Awareness Mentor, and have a Bachelor Arts, and Graduate Diplomas in Positive Psychology and Education,  and Diplomas in Remedial Massage and Bowen Therapy. I am a member of the Positive Psychology Guild and the New Zealand Association of Positive Psychology, and a registered coach and therapist with IICT.

“Working with Lynne has been a lovely journey of discovery and I now acknowledge my skills, and have found greater confidence and less fear.  What I enjoyed most about the process was self discovery and the subtle progress that you notice by being more aware. It’s still shifting even now. Life is for your continuous discovery to expand. Do it.” Marie
