Born in Aotearoa (New Zealand), on the North Shore of Tāmaki-Makaurau (Auckland) and raised in different parts of both islands, this beautiful and sacred land runs through Tui to her very core whilst she simultaneously sits in her Pākehā (NZ European) experience and learns how to be in relationship in a meaningful way with this land and it’s people.
Impacted by the challenges we faced socially and environmentally, Tui began running incubators around the business of social change but soon was on her own personal journey navigating and then healing from isolation, anxiety, depression, unhealthy relationship dynamics and burnouts.
Tui inevitably became drawn to supporting others and trained as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner™ , PACT® practitioner (Pyschobiological Approach to Couple Therapy), DARe™ practitioner, Professional integral coach, Restorative yoga teacher, NVC mediator and co-founded The Social Experiment, Emerge Institute and The Pākehā Project (Pākehā leaders decolonising themselves).
Tui loves being close to nature whether that be in the garden, near expanses of water or in the native bush of Aotearoa. She values close connection with like minded people and collaborating on the next chapter of held.
