Roots of Empathy New Zealand host: The resilience factor of traditional Maori sibling relationships


In my work I have seen that when a parent cannot provide a secure base of healthy attachment for a child, an older sibling can become the desperately needed attachment figure. Dr Kiro speaks of how the traditional Maori sibling relationship between tuakana (older sibling) and teina (younger sibling) can build resilience in a family’s emotional well-being.

New: Skype Sessions

Some of my clients have chosen to occasionally use Skype for our sessions. They choose this if they have young children and it's hard to leave home, if their work schedule doesn't allow them time during the day for an appointment, or if they know they'd prefer to be in the comfort of their home or designated, private space to process their healing.

To learn more if this would be ideal for you, I encourage you to contact me.
