Counsellor & Instructor
Riki is a passionate and motivated individual with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field of health and wellbeing. She holds a Dual Honours Bachelor degree in Art & Philosophy, Post Graduate Diploma in Sexology, a diploma in Counselling, and a certificate of group fitness. Her qualifications coupled together with her ability to engage and inspire young people are the reason we love having her as a STRONG Instructor.
I am passionate about helping children and young people boost their confidence because they are bombarded every day with situations and scenarios that make them feel they aren’t enough. When our children feel confident they can reach their goals, learn important life skills and connect with others. Self-esteem and resilience are also so important to build within our young people so they have the skills to try new things and continue growing.
Being a Counsellor is a privilege because I get to watch people work through their difficulties and learn new ways to cope with life. Particularly with young people, Counselling offers me the chance to support them to learn how to cope with growing up and develop into the people they want to be.
My favourite is, “Knowledge is Power.” This is important to me because I truly believe the more you know about yourself and how those close to you feel, the more empowered you are to create change, truly connect and live your best life! I also like, “If you don’t try, you’ll never know,” – sometimes life is about taking that leap!
