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.” 

– Technician / middle management

    The relationship between Giving and Stress


    In her highly viewed TEDTalk, Kelly McGonigal speaks of stress and the way in which we interpret stress within our lives. 

    Kelly talks of how in times of stress, we tend to seek others out; How the compassionate heart finds joy and meaning in connecting with others. 

    I have seen a number of accounts in this strange and uncertain COVID-19 year where people, groups, and communities have chosen to come together and how they strengthen each other as a result.  

    Could it be possible that in doing so, our relationship with stress itself differs? 

    Take a look at Kelly McGonigal’s TedTalk and the referenced study and see what you think about this idea. What are your thoughts about your relationship with stress, both historically and going forward?

    When we choose to view stress as a helpful preparation mechanism we then create the biology associated with joy and courage.  And when we choose to connect with others during times of stress, we can create personal resilience in ourselves and in others.
