Adventures for personal growth

Helping make the most of your life - for real fulfilment and a sense of purpose

With newfound confidence from mastering new skills and / or active adventures outside your comfort zone, you will be ready to take on fresh challenges. 

Transition coaching

Helping you navigate through work and life transitions  -  such as returning to work, pursuing a new career direction or developing the confidence and skills to master the changes happening in your life. 

We give you the tools to overcome obstacles, work on ‘where to next', and an action plan for how to get there.

How we do it

We listen first to understand your needs and ways you can benefit from coaching. We then make an agreement with clear goals and a plan for how we will work together. This includes:

  • deciding on priorities for facing challenges head on
  • getting some early runs on the board 
  • reviewing what you learned and deciding 'what next' after each successful step 
  • building on your existing strengths and unearthing hidden talents 
  • providing practical tools and templates to speed up achieving your goals. 

We work to suit you using face-to-face meetings, Skype, phone, and email. We back all this up with ‘on call' advisory services to help you apply what you learn.

Mary Somervell is an accredited coach with the Australia and New Zealand Institute of Coaching (ANZIC) and abides by the ANZIC Code of Conduct. She also applies the HRINZ Code of Conduct which is based on International Coaching Federation (ICF) recommendations.

Personal growth adventures

"I've been on many amazing, varied, adventurous and friendly outings fully organised by Mary and enjoyed every one of them.  I know that if Mary is organising an event - be it a weekend to do the Tongariro Crossing, a trip to Waiheke to enjoy zip-lining or cycling the Island, or the chance to drive a rally car around a forest track - everything will run like clock-work. 

Through Mary, I have had opportunities to partake in activities and experiences I may never have otherwise had, and to be gently coaxed to extend beyond my comfort zone. This is always done in an environment of support, encouragement, enjoyment and above all - camaraderie.

I believe Mary has the qualities and skills to assist clients in many aspects of their lives, be it career transitioning, attaining work/live balance, setting and achieving personal and/or professional goals, or expanding one's horizons beyond what they had thought possible.

Thanks to Mary, over the past couple of years my life experiences have expanded beyond anything I could ever have imagined previously and I know the world really is my oyster!"
