Allergy Friendly Food Advise

I've been navigating allergy friendly cooking/baking since my son was 3 months old and developed eczema which was related to food allergies/intolerances. This prompted me to investigate thoroughly diet and food and the impacts it can have, and working out how to make tasty, amazing food with substitutes! I'm willing to share my recipes, ideas, experiences and tips for cooking gluten free, dairy free, nut free, refined sugar free, egg free (though that is no longer a problem for us now) and anything else free that you can think of! Bread, cake, muffins, brownies, pancakes, hot cross buns, pizza bases, savoury muffins, crackers and lots more.  If you've been struggling with food intolerances and allergies, you are not alone! I am also willing to do some baking for you if you prefer not to do it yourself and have an event coming: provided I get plenty of notice and there is some way to easily get it to you :)  I am based in Towai so happy to come to you and help with baking if you are in Kaikohe/Kerikeri/Whangarei or that kind of distance from Kawakawa. Otherwise I am happy to email my recipes if you prefer to try them yourself

Babysitting or supervising older childen

Not all children think they need to have a baby sitter, but I am happy to offer this service to parents. I would prefer it if younger children could be in bed if it is an evening but I am happy to put them to bed if they are comfortable in the company of strangers. As a registered teacher I am police cleared  for working with children and young people. So, if you need to attend an appointment, have a hot date or just need to get the shopping in, give me a call. Please give me as much notice as possible in case I am teaching or attending meetings.

Online or Hāwera: Papakāinga Planning 101

Are your whānau curious or very interested in exploring setting up a papakāinga? Or have you heard of papakāinga but don't really know what's involved, and would like to learn more?  My whānau developed a papakāinga near Hāwera and have been living there the past 12 years. We are just embarking on a journey of renovation and potentially adding more kainga at our settlement. I'm chair of our whānau trust and very involved in coordination of our whānau activities. I recently attended the National Māori Housing Conference and learned a lot about what assistance is out there for whānau embarking on developing their papakāinga. There is more assistance available than first appears. Let me share tips so you can learn from my/our lessons over the years. Can do online or in person here in South Taranaki. If my whānau agree, I might be able to arrange a site visit. Maybe you are not interested in developing a papakāinga, but would like to know more, cool - happy to share my experience and if I can persuade my whānau, there is a chance there could be a possible site visit.

Bowen Technique- Hawera

I am offering a free first session with the Bowen Technique and subsequent sessions at half the usual price for TimeBankers, which is $25 instead of $50. In case you are not familiar with what the Bowen Technique is and what it does here's a brief explanation: Bowen Therapy Bowen Therapy is a light touch therapy that works on specific points on the body, thus stimulating the body's own healing mechanism, activating the immune system and addressing issues around circulation and assists in re-aligment of the body. This extra-ordinary healing modality which Tom Bowen developed in the 60's achieved unprecedented international acclaim due to of it's often instantaneous and lasting results. During a treatment people experience a deep state of relaxation and it is common for people to fall asleep while their body is in healing mode. After a treatment problems that can range from recently sustained injuries to chronic aches or pains significantly diminish or completely disappeared. Feelings of clarity and improved energy, increased libido, better co-ordination, reduced pain and swelling are commonly reported I trained in the UK in 1993 and have practiced since. I also trained in Equine Bowen Therapy and am able to help with horses and other animals. There is a different rate for horses and dogs, but happy to do half price rate for horse $50 and $25 for dog.. Because I have to come out for horses travel expenses need to be covered by  horse/dog owner. This is a standalone offer for TimeBank hours that carries no expectation or obligation for follow-up treatments or services.  Members interested in further treatments or sessions beyond this one time offer, can make arrangements with the provider outside of TimeBank trades. If the recipient feels pressured, at any point, to take up paid services, they are to contact the main coordinator immediately. If a service provider wants reimbursement for expenses or supplies, that must be clearly communicated in the offer, and agreed upon, BEFOREHAND.
