PND Marlborough Charitable Trust Coordinator / Therapy Group Facilitator
Mother, Traveler, Tailor, Gardener, Web designer
Mother is our first encounter, from her we all come, if she is present to love, to nourish and hold, then this new amazing world outside the womb is less scary. If this foundation is there, then our chance to grow and to live a vibrant creative life is higher. Mother is the beginning of our destiny. Supporting mothers in every possible way are my biggest passion and interest. Helping mothers to become fully Mothers,to realize the great importance of their maternal role and to build and strengthen community and Whanau support around them - are truly my call!

"I support PND because I think parenting is the most challenging and rewarding job when it all goes well, so I think women and families should have the best of support if its not."

For most of us the drive to protect our child is innate. Yet life circumstance can render us less effective. We need someone to stand alongside us, to guide us, teach us and help us on this journey. I come to PND as a father who has experienced the loss of a two year old child. I know what it is to be overwhelmed by grief and depression. All families have their story, I support PND because it stands in the community helping more stories have happy endings

Lover of orienteering, cycling, traveling, gardening and a bit of a foodie.
I support the PND Marlborough trust firstly because in general I believe that mental health has been underfunded, lacks support,and still carries a stigma in our society.
For the PND Marlborough trust in particular, I feel that mothers are especially vulnerable and for every mother struggling with depression at the very least one child’s live and early formative period is affected but often whole families can suffer.
The trust can provide support, relief and healing to those families which for me makes it a very worthwhile cause to give my support to."

"I volunteer to help others, to help parents be the best they can be, to empower each other, and to ensure all babies in our Marlborough community have the best start to life. As a Mother of two gorgeous children, I appreciate and value the support of my own family and friends, and understand that being a parent is a journey. I value the work of PND Marlborough, and I'm keen to help... many hands make light work!"
