Guy Powell


Kia Ora, ko Guy ahau, UK born, now Aotearoa citizen. I spent an OE year here in 2002 and learnt to skydive in Taupo. Back in the UK, after many winter seasons snowboarding in the French Alps, I finally settled to complete my training as Mental Health Nurse. I moved to NZ in 2012, worked at the Rangatahi Adolescent Inpatient ward and 6 years as a therapist with the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service in Kapiti. I love helping young people get past their barriers, to the rich experiences of living their best lives. I recently learnt to sail and spent a summer sailing across the Cook Straights to Golden Bay, including a magical week, hunkered down from a cyclone, deep in Rangitoto ki te Tonga (D’Urville Island). I also like to go slow, spending time in nature, hanging out with the Pīwakawaka . I look forward to meeting you and supporting you on your adventures here in Wellington.
