Amy Evans

Hi I’m Amy Evans, an artist and mother of two boys. I found a passion for making art when I was a girl. This passion lead me into art school, followed by art teaching. Since starting a family I’m enjoying pursuing my art, as it’s something I can work around having a family and it’s a means of expressing myself. I believe art has the power to move people emotionally and spiritually. It also challenges people’s thinking about how they think about things and perceive the world. I like to work in a manner that’s abstract/ expressive as this allows for multiple readings of the work.

Ainee Cha
Mindfulness & Self-Discovery Life Coach

Kia Ora! I am a mother of two beautiful children. While it’s only natural that we want the best for our children to grow and flourish, it’s not always easy; let alone mothers who are constantly juggling between work and family. Mindfulness has been proven effective in my own experience as a foundation skill to de-stress, navigate through difficult emotions, be less reactive, more focussed, and ultimately nurture kindness and compassion.

As a Mindfulness Practitioner and a Certified Life Coach, My work and services revolve around young children, teenagers, youths and women – teaching, guiding, mentoring and coaching in the areas of mindfulness and meditation toward self-discovery. I believe that learning to know yourself, and “why you do the things you do” is the first step to cultivating mindful awareness from the inside-out holistically.

My work aims to introduce self-compassion and clarity to support you and your family in discovering your values and be empowered to make healthy and mindful choices. Thus cultivate mindful habits, calmness, and resilience and effectively deal with the challenges and emotional moments one may encounter. I focus on anxiety and worry, stress and burnout, life transitions, difficulty in focusing, and emotional reactivity.

I am truly inspired to support your family’s mental and emotional wellbeing. My coaching is a platform that allows me to create a positive difference in the lives of the people I cross paths with.
