Rebecca is a highly respected Coach, Presenter and Author of The How Of Hope: One family’s story of overcoming mental illness. She has been described as a ‘magician’ for her ability to get to the underlying issue with her clients and help them quickly turn things around.


She is on a mission to teach people how to have their minds working for them rather than against.

Rebecca worked as a mental health professional in New Zealand and England for 20 years. Frustrated by the limitations of current mental health services, she completed her Certificate Practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma. Excited by the results she and her clients were achieving from NLP and Hypnotherapy sessions she set up the business Healthy Minds in 2015 along with her business partner Imelda Curtin.

Healthy Minds specialises working with successful people who, although describe they have a good life, are feeling stuck. They have ticked lots of boxes – the house, the boat, the good job, a family they love and yet sense that something is missing.

This can be experiencing imposter syndrome, anxiety, avoiding conflict, not wanting to speak up, exhausted by self-doubt and pressure, or thinking “Is this all there is to life?”

She loves empowering people with the tools to discover, focus and achieve what they really want. Clients describe that the sessions have allowed them to feel free to be themselves and find they are achieving so much more while also being able to enjoy the day to day. Rather than dreading the next challenge they are looking forward with an inner confidence knowing “whatever happens I’ve got this.”

Rebecca is also an experienced presenter, where her relaxed, down-to-earth approach puts audiences at ease while imparting valuable mindset techniques on the topics of stress and anxiety, emotional issues, lasting weight loss and workplace wellbeing. A presenting highlight was when she was invited to talk at Butabika Hospital in Uganda regarding setting up community mental health services.

She lives in beautiful Christchurch, New Zealand with her husband, daughter and cat Patrick and rabbits Bernie and Luna.
