Work History

Parent Programme Manager and Cool Schools Trainer

NZ Peace Foundation

I am working part-time as Parent Programme Manager and trainer. I work in schools throughout Auckland teaching mediation and conflict management skills.
I have also facilitated 12-15 hour trainings to groups of parents, grandparents, caregivers and counsellors throughout Auckland. The Peaceful Family Communication programme is based on the internationally recognised work of Dr Richard Bolstad and Dr T Gordon's work in Parent and Teacher Effectiveness Training. In my role as trainer I have seen significant changes in the lives of many parents and their families and it is extremely rewarding and life-changing work.

NZ Trauma Recovery Team

February 2010 - December 2010

( December - February 2010

Following the September tsunami in Samoa a group of friends and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) colleagues formed the NZ Trauma recovery team -see website for further information). We are a volunteer organisation aimed at assisting Samoan health workers and victims. Together we planned and fundraised for a team of seven people including Dr Richard Bolstad to deliver a 3 day free training in February for 40 health workers, counsellors, police and first response teams. We are now a registered charitable trust and have been more recently assisting people with PTSD from the Christchurch earthquake.
