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.”

“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.”

What is your story?

What happens when you desperately want to achieve something but then you get in your own way?  Often our past experiences create a certain mindset in what is otherwise a strong, powerful and creative adult and these mindsets (or stories) create conflicting emotional drivers in us when trying to achieve our goals.  These mindsets can affect us in subtle ways, like procrastination over a much-loved project, good old self-doubt or for some, you may experience more debilitating emotions, such as depression.  For many of us, these stories can continue for many years, and often, when we hold on to a story, we can even find examples to justify our way of being, in order to support our current story and stop ourselves from achieving our dreams and desires.

Let me give you an example.  I left school early in life, moved to another city and walked the streets until I secured my first job.  Now 30 yrs later, I still have the story that I am not intelligent enough, that my skills must come into question all because my education was cut short.

Over the years, I have learned to acknowledge the presence of that story so that when it comes up (no, it’s not quite gone yet), I can choose a different one.  You see, we always have a choice when it comes to our story.  In any given example there are in fact two stories and we get to choose which one plays out.

To expand on my example earlier,  one story is that I am under-educated as a result of leaving school early and the other story could be that I was extremely resourceful to move to a new city and walk the streets until I found a job, being such a young age at the time; That shows a certain strength of character right?  You see, one story leads you to pain and limiting behaviors while the other, to fulfillment and happiness.

In supervision we get to explore some of your emotional drivers, enabling you to move forward…. we change your story. Your story is not a part of who you are, it is just that…a story, and once you acknowledge that and let it go, you get to create what happens from then on.  For me, I went on to own and develop several businesses, to travel the world extensively, have beautiful children and at the age of 45 yrs, achieve a Post Graduate qualification.

Everyone has a story and often these are a result of something painful that has happened to us in life.   When you realise that every human being goes through pain and injustice, (some more than others) and that everyone has had someone hurt them deeply, or betrayed them, and as painful as that experience was, it seems, that is how we grow as people.  Without having had the experience you wouldn’t have developed the power, intensity, strength or confidence that you have now. If you had not experienced that moment in your life, then you wouldn’t be the person that you are today.

So what is your story and more importantly, are you ready to let it go so that you can create a new one?
