What My Clients Say
"I found her super relatable."
As a busy mum of two toddlers I was struggling to adjust with the huge changes that motherhood brought to my life and my anxiety was controlling me. Missy helped me to really understand those changes and work on managing my anxiety better. She had some wonderful tools and tips for both my anxiety and parenting. I found her super relatable being a mother herself and she made me feel comfortable from the very first session.
"I found her easy to talk to."
I first encountered Missy at one of her Empowermums courses, and was impressed by her calm, relatable manner, so she was an easy choice when I needed some help with my anxiety. She brought that same gentle, no-nonsense energy to our individual sessions. I found her easy to talk to, and she gave me some helpful tools to work on managing my anxiety levels. I'd definitely reach out to her again in the future.
"Her approach was really helpful to me."
I'd wholeheartedly recommend Missy for any wahine looking to be the best she can be for herself and her family. Her astute and pragmatic approach was really helpful to me in working through some big roadblocks in a short time, and she helped me focus in on what was important to me.
