"The Koru represents - New Life, New Growth, New Beginnings"

How would it be if your dreams become your reality?

Do you dream of doing something you’ve always wanted to do?  Find purpose and meaning in your life,  improve or change your relationships, move to a new area of the country or overseas, get on top of your money issues, lose weight, find another job – or all of these things?  I can help you change your life.

Koru Self Development was established as a personal development business to educate and teach others how to develop empowered lives and to achieve their true potential using non-invasive and holistic health methods.

Caterina was drawn to use the Koru as logo. The Koru is an iconic symbol of New Zealand native flora and shows the unfurling new leaf of the silver fern (our national emblem) and represents the unfolding of new life, new growth and positive new beginnings.

The Waikato Reiki Centre offers Reiki Training at all levels and is under the umbrella of Koru Self Development .
