Mindfulness Month 2022

Kia ora, we all have mental health and I am committing to focusing on my wellbeing and helping others to do the same in August with Aotearoa/NZ's first ever, nationwide month of mindfulness.

I'd love to help you to make the most of Mindfulness Month. I offer two mindful and restorative journaling sessions online in August to support your mental health and wellbeing: Thursday 11th and Thursday 25th, 6.30 - 7.15pm (evening).  I am donating my time for these sessions.

All you need to do to take part in these online sessions is make a donation to my page for the Mental Health Foundation. My online sessions usually sell out for $15 - $20 per person, per session.  However, you can donate any amount you like. Even just $1 will make a difference, as every little counts. 

Once you've donated, send me an email at and I'll reply with the Zoom login link for my online mindful journaling sessions. It's as easy as that.

I learned about the power of journaling when recovering from post  traumatic stress nearly 25 years ago. It enabled me to break the hold stress had on me and also freed my thoughts to plan for a better and different life.

I believe that we can do better to support the mental health of all New Zealanders, which is why I am fundraising to support the Mental Health Foundation.

The Mental Health Foundation believes that together, we can work towards creating a society free from discrimination, where we can all enjoy positive mental health and wellbeing.

Please show your support and donate to my page today, every little counts! Your donations will support the Mental Health Foundation to:

  • Push to transform our mental health system to one which prevents problems developing, responds earlier and more effectively and empowers communities and individuals to learn the behaviours that will protect and enhance their mental resilience and wellbeing.

  • Advocate for systemic change to improve social, economic and cultural determinants of mental health and wellbeing. This includes advocating for secure and safe housing and opposing discriminatory systems.

  • Ensure our work is informed by tāngata whaiora (people with lived experience of mental distress) through active engagement with these communities.

  • Action our commitment as a Te Tiriti o Waitangi partner by engaging with and being led by Māori, uplifting and amplifying Māori voices, incorporating mātauranga Māori into our work and seeking improved outcomes for Māori.  

Thank you so much.
