Hi I'm Kathy Hughes. I'm a Counsellor, certified TRE Provider, a certified Havening® Practitioner, certified Trauma Tapping Technique Instructor, spiritual director and a registered ACC NZ counsellor for sexual trauma.

I love to collaborate with you on your wellbeing journey. I have an integrated approach drawn from Person Centred Counselling, Havening, Tension Release Exercises TRE, Mindfulness and other body-mind approaches with a nursing background and general life experience. 

I am fascinated with neuroscience and the hope that comes from the new understanding of neuroplasticity - which means anything can change. I am passionate about tailoring Body-Mind methods to each unique person. Anyone can learn ways to support their own amazing ability to self-heal.

I am  based in Christchurch, New Zealand.

If you are interested in the name KoruQi - Koru in Te Reo Maori, our indigenous language, means New Beginnings, New Growth. Qi or Chi is a Mandarin word for the Life energy that flows through all things.
