Bex, who is originally from the East Coast of the North Island, moved to Riverton in January to be closer to family, and because she loved the relaxed environment and the people of Southland. It’s also a great place to raise her four children, she says.
Health and wellbeing has always been her focus and she has studied kinesiology, reiki, therapeutic massage and rongoa among others.
Bex was drawn to Nga Kete after hearing it offered several services from addictions counselling to doctor services and more at little or no cost.
“It’s all for the people. It’s help that’s accessible to everyone and that’s just brilliant.”
