Professional supervision and business coach for Nelson NZ

Gina has this wonderful ability to hold you in a safe, non-judgemental space while watching you wriggle and squirm to a place of learning.  She is tough – but I can’t wait for my next session!

-MM Electrician

“I worked with Gina for 6 months, both myself and my team have seen a positive change in the way that we communicate. Gina was able to understand my issues and provide me with the skills to lead change” – MM, Team leader

“Having someone to talk to who could help me reflect on my leadership and plan a way forward with some of the challenges I faced was hugely beneficial. Gina has a very natural ability to help people unravel an issue, break down the core components and then package it back up as a planned course of action.”

“Your approach, understanding and ability to communicate with me is precisely what I have needed. You interpret what I am saying very well and I appreciate your considerate process, I feel almost capable when I am working with you.”

SC- Business Owner

“As a small business owner I have at times lacked support and I really get this from Gina. Gina is extremely passionate in her desire to see me do well and I have feel well supported, both personally and professionally. I know she will help me to create amazing success in both my business and personally.”

SN- Business Owner

“Gina is an engaging speaker and very inspiring. Her workshop content was well researched, specific to the participants and very informative. She is a valued member of any business group.”

– Sarah Holmes, Manager, Nelson Tasman Business Trust

“I really like working with Gina for her enthusiasm, willingness to try new ideas. She holds a special interest in helping small business owners.”

– Business Mentor

“Gina is lovely! So motivational. She’s given me direction and focus and also confidence I’m on the right track.”

– RL Business owner

“Burn-out is something other people experience.  I had no idea that’s what I was going through or how it was affecting my productivity and ultimately my business. Gina was a god send, she got me moving again quickly and together we were able to meet some very significant deadlines”.

– Business owner

“My boss tells me that he can really notice the difference since Gina and I have been working together.  Apparently, my approach is much more ‘considered’.  Personally, I have found the new skills handy in lots of areas, not just work.”

    Cultivating healthy distance between your thoughts and you

    Culturally we view negative thoughts as bad, something to get rid of – as if there is something wrong with us when we having such thoughts. You only need to look at all the self-help books out there suggesting that we can and should be thinking less negatively and more positively. 

    You may be surprised then to discover that In contrast, many modern psychological theories emphasise that trying to get rid of unwanted thoughts and feelings is a waste of energy, and often counterproductive. 

    It seems that having unwanted thoughts, feelings, and urges, is not really the problem. Rather, it’s all about how we relate or respond to them when they show up that’s significant.  

    Modern thought suggests rather than trying to reduce, avoid, or change our negative thought content, instead, we are looking to reduce the effect of this unhelpful influence over our behaviour

    By us Relating skilfully to unhelpful thoughts we can;

    • Become more aware of our unhelpful mind chatter 
    • Learn to defuse unhelpful thoughts 
    • Cultivate healthy ‘distance’ between thought (our brain) and thinker (us).

    It’s often the everyday stuff that has a subtle influence on our actions, making these techniques a positive tool for change in everyday situations. 

    Acceptance Commitment Training (ACT) is an evidence-based approach providing knowledge and skills to cultivate flexible behaviour, effectiveness, and well-being within the workplace setting. 

    By becoming more aware of the qualities that you most want to express in your daily behaviour you will be able to relate more skilfully to difficult or unhelpful thoughts and feelings. 

    Bring science, health and the business sector together.

    If you would like to know more about how this evidence based approach has been adapted as an effective tool within the workplace, please make contact.  I am contemplating facilitating a 4 session workshop (online) – more details to following.
