Journey To Ora Well

“Mauri Ora Wellness” was a natural progression of  “by Zenus” established in 2007.  This has since transpired to “ORA WELL as we head towards further exciting change and development.  We started out as a contractual, social service that  provided social services such as; counselling, social work, group coaching to clients and practitioners from Community, Government and NGO Organisations.

“Mauri Ora Wellness” opened  in January 2012. It evolved firstly from a long standing aspiration to work effectively with people, considering the “whole person” and the inter relatedness of  …te taha hinengaro, (mind) te taha tinana (body) te taha wairua (spirit)….te taha whanau (family). Secondly, my personal journey in rediscovering well-being, after being diagnosed with a chronic Autoimmune Illness.

With  dedicated  research,  self healing and the practice of Mindfulness and Acceptance, I was able to reframe my illness,  allowing me to truly understand the GIFT within. A gift that enabled time and space for Self Exploration, a personal journey that has been both difficult and extraordinary. It has given me the time and opportunity to explore my values and priorities, to see life from a wider perspective, broaden my skill base extensively. It has led me to widespread research in the areas of  Autoimmune Disease, Stress, Compassion Fatigue and Vicarious Trauma, its prevention and recovery.  Furthermore, training and education in the MindBody Connection, the impact that overwhelming emotion and negative belief systems that underly Chronic illness and prevent Positive Change and Healing to occur.

I am truly able to  relate to the massive impact that chronic illness brings to your life and that of your loved ones, furthermore,  qualified and experienced to enable YOU to manage and rediscover well-being in your unique situation.

Our services will empower you, create greater self awareness,  ease emotional and physical pain, give you clearer direction and choice in your pathway to well-being, which will have a flow on effect into relationships, both personal and professional.
