Somatic Therapy | Somatic Coaching

How I work.

Through our Somatic Therapy / Somatic Coaching work together you will unlock your innate wisdom, leading to growth and healing.  I will be drawing on a range of modalities including Somatic Experiencing™, DARe (Dynamic Attachment Repatterning Experience), trauma healing, the autonomic nervous system and more, integrating some or all of them in a way that supports your reasons for seeking out support. 


How we can work together.


Weekly or fortnightly one to one somatic therapy / somatic coaching sessions 50 minute sessions. 

The work will be a combination of Somatic Experiencing™, DARe (Dynamic Attachment Re-patterning Experience) and other psychotherapeutic modalities woven in. This work is designed to support you in creating the shifts you're longing for in the most effective, embodied way. Working together is bespoke to your situation, and what works best for your needs.

Sessions online, or in person in Devonport (Tāmakai Makaurau / Auckland, New Zealand).



These programs facilitate deep healing and growth. You will embody a new way of being that will profoundly alter how you are in life.

They are a combination of Somatic Experiencing™, DARe™ (Attachment Re-patterning) and other modalities woven into a structured program. I bring together different modalities to serve each individual client.

What it consists of: No two programs are alike. They each consist of one to one sessions, educational content, workbooks, daily practices  and email support. The length of the program alters depending on the client. 

  • A custom designed program based around the shifts you most want.

  • Bespoke curated video content covering psycho-education so that you can really embody the work.

  • Workbook content to further integrate and personalise the work to you following each video.

  • Personalised daily practises designed to support your growth, healing and learning based on what has emerged in your sessions.

  • One to one somatic therapy / somatic coaching sessions.

  • Support between sessions as needed.

 All programs are designed bespoke to the client's situation.

What informs our work together...

Somatic Experiencing™

Somatic Experiencing™ (SE) is a body-oriented therapeutic model for healing trauma and other stress disorders. It is based on a multidisciplinary intersection of physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics and has been clinically applied for more than four decades.




(Dynamic Attachment Re-patterning Experience). DARe® is a groundbreaking somatic Adult Attachment process created by Diane Poole Heller (Ph.D). Shifting patterns of how we are in relationship, to live from a calm easeful place while in relationship. 

Integral Coaching®

Integral Coaching® refers to a way of coaching that is whole, complete and integrated. An Integral approach brings about change that endures over time, beyond the term of a coaching contract.

Restorative Yoga.

At its heart, Restorative Yoga is about resting. When we fully support the body, we create a space for deep and profound relaxation and rest.

We may use various Restorative Yoga postures to create different physiological and energetic effects.

Full Embodiment: Sexuality and sexual trauma.

Healing sexuality and sexual trauma from an embodied, somatic lens. For those who have experienced sexual trauma as a child, sexual assault as adults, people who struggle with debilitating shame, sexual/gender identity, body image and generally resist being in their bodies.


Non-violent Communication (NVC).

Also called compassionate communication or collaborative communication. NVC is an approach to communication based on principles of nonviolence. It is not a technique to end disagreements, but rather a method designed to increase empathy and improve the quality of life of those who utilize the method and the people around them.

“Tui was a phenomenal coaching partner - The culture in our organisation now sees us move truly as one organism, this has led to some incredible innovations within the business, in both product and process. Our relationships with our clients are stronger, which has led to an increase in repeat customers and a higher average spend. Clients are enamoured with this environment and simply want to be a part of it. We've 'leveled up’.”
