Meet Rachelle Millar
At 28 years of age I was feeling dissatisfied with my life, career and relationships, the solution I thought to my problems was to quit my job, sell all my belongings and go to Queenstown to snowboard & ski, whilst fun, it didn't make me happy with my lot in life.
So I went to Canada on a working holiday visa and my search for happiness continued. I returned home 14 months later thinking I had the answer to life and yet still this low level feeling of dissatisfaction and sadness continued.
What to do? What to do.? Trying to find ways to be positive and high on life was simply not working.
Seeking professional support was scary and confronting, for myself and my parents. I remember telling my mother that I was going to a guide, hoping to have her understand, but she like many kiwis said, it's not that bad, you don't need that.
When I engaged in the Foundation Year of Psychosynthesis a personal developmental programme in 2003, I never thought I was going to become a counsellor.
What happened, was that I learnt about acknowledging my needs and the ability to say no and my yes to things, my boundaries. I got to know myself and my core values as well as the things that triggered my feelings and responses and how to engage my will. I learnt how to change my life from the inside out. I went from conquering physical challenges to conquering the mountains within.
30 years on, I offer my clients, a safe space to conquer the monsters or the mountains within every single one of us. I guide my clients to navigate the raw edges of life and support them in finding that complete satisfaction in life, you know that smug look that you feel when you just have it. I help them to really take charge of their life and direction.
Whether we meet online or in person, what you get with me is a real warmth and presence with a whole lot of professional training & qualifications in holding open a space for you to explore what makes you, you and how you can transform your health, wealth and happiness.
“Working with Rachelle for 6 months has been life changing. I came to her to seek help in working through personal issues. What I didn't expect is the guidance I also found in my professional life and relationships.
Every session has been therapeutic and eye opening, with Rachelle having an ability to hone in on the deeper issues that have been creating blockages and challenge. I have had to work at it everyday to see the results and improvements.
The homework Rachelle assigned during each session was relevant to push me forward, to keep me accountable and get me to the place where I am today – positive, motivated and feeling in control of my destiny. Rachelle has a gift to closely listen, she's able to tap into your inner thoughts, formulate the root cause and suggest ways to work through difficulties.
I've grown spiritually and mentally from our sessions and feel that I’m a better person today through her dedication and willingness to push me forward even on days when I was struggling. Words and expression on this review do not serve justice to what I’ve learned and experienced.
Rachelle has impacted my life in ways I did not expect, she provides knowledge and skills her website does not describe; ultimately the sessions were above and beyond my expectations. Best of all, I don't feel like I’ve been talking to a therapist or a coach, I feel I’ve been in the company of a wise and funny friend. Rachelle will be a part of my life as I continue to grow as a person, I am ever grateful.”
