Introducing FLAX

Healthier & Happier outcomes for our tamariki...

I’m an Educational Wellbeing & Advocacy Coach, and one of my biggest privileges has been supporting the team at FLAX.

FLAX was started in the first half of 2023 as a collective of Mental Health Coaches keen to make a difference in schools. We're a registered charity. 

We support better wellbeing outcomes for students and staff through lifestyle changes and equipping our people with wellness tools and resources.

We're filling the gap in the mild-moderate mental health space of addiction, trauma, anxiety and depression.

We're also working on mental fitness and resilience with school leaders, educators, children and sports teams. 

My work with FLAX is super exciting and the team continues to grow both in number and in skillset/experience. Whilst we are relatively new in Aotearoa as a profession, the space for Mental Health Coaches to fill is huge and we know that relieving the burden on school counsellors and working alongside social workers, teachers and whanau can only improve outcomes for our children. 

I also empower whanau to advocate for their tamariki in educational and health settings to achieve equality and success. I particularly support whanau in the spaces of disability support and funding challenges.
