About Indigo

Indigo is one of those rare smiley people in life who loves to laugh, to help the people she meets to find their balance and to live well. She likes to think and work in intuitive and creative ways. A qualified counsellor, trauma therapist, teacher, artist, energy healer and yoga teacher, Indigo loves learning, travelling, walking, yoga and is an artist in her spare time.. Born in the South Island but raised in the King Country, Indigo has studied, lived and worked across New Zealand and when not running away to Italy to enjoy gelato and sunshine, she calls Wellington home.

Yoga Therapy

Trained in Rainbow Yoga (Australia) and an ambassador for Rainbow Yoga in the Wellington Region, Indigo is passionate about supporting real people to enjoy the benefits yoga can offer. Not to be confused with the 1 hour yoga session that Indigo also offers, yoga therapy is about first assessing a person’s needs in an initial appointment and then designing a brief therapy session that a person can also use at home to support well-being. Indigo is especially passionate about yoga to support fertility & pregnancy well-being, and the use of yoga for anxiety, depression, trauma and back strain.


Indigo has worked as a counsellor and family therapist for many years. Trained in trauma-specific counselling, Indigo has provided services for EAP, Primary Mental Health services, Vitae, Workplace support and ACC Sensitive Claims. She has worked in the justice sector, school guidance teams, community mental health, private practice, and community family work agencies in Hamilton, South Auckland, Rotorua and Wellington and has completed training in the US, Canada, Italy, Australia, and New Zealand. Skilled in working with 5 years-adults, Indigo is creative, intuitively aware, sensitive and ‘real’ in her approach, and specialises in blending her training in lots of different approaches to meet people where they are at. 

ACC Sensitive claims is a government funded service for those who meet specific criteria. WINZ clients may qualify for part funded counselling (up to ½ the rate). Please discuss these specific funding streams with Indigo prior to making an appointment. For all other private clients, please book a session accordingly.

Energy Balancing

Indigo practices two forms of energy work: Reiki and EMF balancing technique. The latter is an energy healing approach that works with the person’s energy system and seeks to balance head and heart through 1-4 different phases. Indigo enjoys how the phases work to support clearing of energy from the past, and help people to set goals for the future but are totally directed by the individuals own unique energy system. Phases can be combined. The process involves minimal-light touch (clothed), with resting on the back or the front (with variation for pregnant guests or people unable to lie on their back) depending on the phase selected. Sessions last up to 1.5 hours, and some take-home tools are provided post session. Please contact Indigo to discuss which phase is right for you.
