My top work value has always been to make a difference. We spend so much time at work and I feel like getting our decisions around work right is crucial since what we do for a living and the effect our paid work has on the rest of our lives has a big impact on our overall well-being.
“It was great to talk with Lila. She is wonderful, helpful and clearly understood what I was aiming for with my future goals.”
“Great rapport, professionalism, listening and feedback! Thank you.”
“Thank you so much Lila. I found the session invaluable.”
I live in Devonport, Auckland, and I usually meet with clients in a wheelchair accessible private room in the Devonport Library; however, I am also able to offer video conferencing sessions via Zoom or Google Hangouts. Alternatively, if you prefer the outdoors to office environments, my consultations with you can take place over a walk along the waterfront or on top of Takarunga (it’s a bit of an uphill hike, but the view is worth it and the tops of mountains provide lots of scope for imagination).
Diverse clients have repeatedly told me that I am approachable, so please don’t hesitate to contact me so we can begin our conversation. I embrace a Health at Every Size®️ philosophy and I want my work to contribute to social justice. I aim to infuse my client interactions with kindness and professionalism while helping you move towards your preferred future. I look forward to working with you.
Contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org or call or text me on 021 068 5039 to book a consultation.

- Professional Membership of CDANZ (Career Development Association of NZ). Professional Membership requires ongoing professional development, adherence to a Code of Ethics and a career-specific qualification. I served as the Chairperson of the Auckland Branch Committee for 2 years.
