Of particular interest to Zest for Life is working with individuals to recover from the effects of unexpected and unwanted life events which may have left them challenged to embrace their new circumstances.

Totally enrolled with this and it makes a difference ... Coaching has been very good ... You add a lot of wisdom to things ... our talks have been very good ….you get a good rating.
I got more productive …. I attribute that to you (maybe not solely you) but a significant part and that is big …. My overall sense of self is good …I’m a worthwhile effective person .. that has happened during the course of our coaching.

For over 7 years Felicity has worked as a mentor and life coach, privately in one on one sessions, and also in group workshops and within organisations such as the mental health WISE group, and more recently with the Waikato / Bay of Plenty Cancer Society.
Her employment with the WISE group was based in a Wellness retreat designed specifically to support
individuals to recover and rebalance in the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquakes of 2010 and 2011.
More recently she has teamed up with the Cancer Society to create a program called Living Your Life, for those who are 18 months post-treatment
With circumstances often radically changed after illness such as cancer, the program is designed to support individuals to find 'solid ground' again, or even for the first time, to be 'at ease' within themselves and learn how to support and choose their next steps from an empowered place.
It is now well known that having hope and a sense of purpose makes a huge difference in supporting recovery from and prevention of illness.
