Hi! I'm Neens
(well my actual name is Nina but only my parents really call me that).
My pronouns are she/her and I live in beautiful Wellington, the capital of Aotearoa (New Zealandd).
I’m a self-proclaimed personal growth junkie, Certified Women’s Coaching Specialist and just can’t get enough of learning about my big 3 interests – psychology, behaviour change and training – so much so I’m currently studying towards a psychology degree part-time 🙂
I enjoy figuring out how I can apply what I learn to my own life and especially when helping my clients.
Three years ago I found myself in an interesting hole – while it looked like I had a great life on the outside, something didn’t feel right on the inside.
I was pursuing a career that wasn’t really fulfilling me, I didn’t really know who I wanted to be and stuck in a negative mindset and body image. Add to that the diagnosis of a hip injury and my brain was having the time of its life throwing pity parties almost every day.
Knowing that there must be a different way to deal with what was going on inside my head I started to develop an interest in personal growth and self-development. I started to read, listen and watch anything I could get my hands on and over time developed strategies and tools to help me take charge of my life to get shit done.
Fast forward to now where I don’t just want to keep working away on myself – I have a clear vision of who I want to be and what I want to do: help burnt-out overthinkers and perfectionists get out of their heads so they can get shit done!
When I’m not getting my geek on learning more about my interests and passions, you can usually find me in my (newly finished) backyard gym hitting a workout or somewhere in the hills behind our house for a hike.
