BACKGROUND

Eve is a registered psychologist with a background in special needs education, expressive arts, counseling and mental well-being. Her book Scatterlings inspired and assisted immigrants around the world. Eve will be sharing thoughts and insights about the Emotional Rollercoaster Immigration Ride & its impacts on the family, the kids, relationships and how immigration affects men, women, adolescents & children differently. She will provide a few coping strategies and tools to facilitate the process. New and older immigrants will both benefit from what she has to offer. Pieter has been involved with the settlement of migrants to New Zealand for some 20 years. From his own immigration experience 35 years ago he realised later on that many immigrants were all too often ill-informed/prepared for life in NZ. His philosophy is that if migrants would get good, realistic information and take more responsibility to informing themselves about the real realities of life in NZ, they could become productive and can add value to this country much better and much sooner. Or, perhaps not come at all, avoiding a mentally and/or financially disastrous experience. From that perspective he wrote his book “New Zealand from A-Z” in the late 80’s and, created the first community education workshops on the topic of settlement in 1997 as well as the Immigration Clinics at the Pakuranga CAB in 1999. Pieter’s professional experiences are many and include being an immigration adviser for over 15 years, a natural mind-body therapist and a certified career guidance counselor for the last 3 years. As an Educator/Trainer, his objective is to empower people through knowledge and training in order to become independent; as such he loves working with all kinds of people at all levels, including new migrants.
