Kia Ora & Welcome 

I’m Mikayla, a qualified counsellor and yoga teacher.

Throughout my life at various times, I have sought support through counselling. I have also explored other modalities to support my mental health and wellbeing such as yoga and somatics.

My lived experienced inspired me to study and follow this career path. I now get to support clients all over Aotearoa New Zealand with their mental health.


“When the other person is hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified; or when he or she is doubtful of self-worth, uncertain as to identity—then understanding is called for. The gentle and sensitive companionship offered by an empathic person… provides illumination and healing. In such situations deep understanding is, I believe, the most precious gift one can give to another.”

— Carl Rogers
