Robin Harrison is a Professional Member of the New Zealand Association of Professional Hypnotherapists, a Reiki Practitioner and holds a Diploma in Teaching the Failing Reader. She has a background in Office Management, Human Resource Management and Customer Services.
Robin has a passion for wellness, both Corporate and individual and sees stress (or distress) management as one of the most vital tools for achieving this aim.
On a Corporate level Robin has worked in Customer Services with Nissan Retail and more recently with the National Heart Foundation of New Zealand as Office Manager, with responsibility for Human Resource issues. Personal experience includes dealing with chronic pain and children with severe reading problems. This has shown Robin that it is not so much a matter of what we know but how we process what we know, how we adapt to change and our resilience factor that are the key components.
Stress is fundamental to life and it is the management of both positive and negative stress that determines our wellness. When we understand our mind and the impact it has on our everyday decisions, we can use it effectively to make choices, bring balance into our lives and experience, less stress, balance and a feeling of wellness or being alive.
