More about

I'm Colette, a Certified Health and Mental Health Coach with a physiotherapy background. Drawing on my experience as a physiotherapist, I understand the integral connection between physical and mental wellbeing. Through a blend of physical knowledge and coaching tools, I empower individuals to achieve their health and wellbeing objectives.

I was born in The Netherlands, moved to the UK after my Physiotherapy degree and have lived, and worked in the health and wellbeing sector, in NZ since 2004.

As a Dutch-Kiwi, I live with my Kiwi husband and our two beautiful Dutch-Kiwi children in Auckland, New Zealand.

No matter where life takes you, no matter how 'picture-perfect' your life looks,  there will always be ebbs and flows, high tides and low tides, the occasional king tide and sometimes even a big tidal wave, particularly in phases of life when hormones or our brain go in overdrive. These 'Life Tides' affect both your mental and physical wellbeing. As your Health and Mental Health Coach, I’m here to walk (or swim) alongside you, explore those waves, dive deeper when needed and come out the other end refreshed and refocused with your landmark in sight.

For my own wellbeing I love exploring the outdoors, dancing, swimming, catching up with friends and family and ideally a combination of the above.

Qualifications

In New Zealand and many other countries, 'Health & Wellness Coach' is not a regulated professional title, meaning anyone could call themselves a Health Coach.

 

Memberships with organisations, such as the 'Health Coaches Australia and New Zealand Association' (HCANZA) or the 'International Coaching Federation' (ICF), indicate the coach is:

  • professionally trained by a accredited training programme

  • meets best practice standards 

  • committed to professional Scope of Practice and Code of Ethics 

  • fulfils ongoing Continuous Professional Development requirements.
