BRAINFIT®WORLD Director & Coach, Grad Dip. Corporate Communications & Public Relations, BA (Sociology & Politics), Dip. Freelance Journalism

I became involved with Brainfit having experienced first-hand the devastating effects of prolonged stress on the brain and memory during a mental breakdown in my early 30’s.

As a practiced communicator, presenter and capability trainer, I have been putting my skills to good use since 2017, as an accredited Brainfit Coach helping Kiwis to understand that stress and getting older don’t have to go hand in hand with memory loss. The sooner you start to strengthen your brain, the better.

I am a passionate lifelong learner who knows how important cognitive vitality and resilience are to thrive personally and professionally. I am highly regarded as an energetic and engaging presenter and I have been lucky enough to share my story and expertise on radio, podcasts and TV so, if you are looking for:

  • A fun and engaging way to improve your knowledge of memory and brain health
  • Improved confidence in knowing how to grow your brain regardless of your age
  • Easy memory tips and exercises to practice at home and share with family & friends

Please get in touch.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY 

This has been such a reassuring course – great to know there are lots of ways I can keep my brain active and sharpen my memory.

Sue Crozier, Auckland, NZ

Very clearly presented.  Good balance between information and practice.  Most people do not know you can reverse your ‘brain loss’.

Martine, Auckland, NZ

Very valuable hints to encourage healthy memory. Thoroughly enjoyable and non-threatening. Younger people need to be encouraged to take the course.

Pauline, Auckland, NZ

I had an opportunity to practice remembering names at a social gathering on Friday where we met a lot of new people. Being an inquisitive person I found it easier to probe into people’s names rather than weave a story around them. For instance I was introduced to a lady called Sheryl and asked her if she was Sheryl or Cheryl. By concentrating on people’s names and repeating them as soon as possible I was able to remember most people I met, even differentiating between an Annette and a Lynette so was quite pleased.

Moyra, Auckland NZ

I have recently finished a course called Brain Fit For Life with Jessie. It is the best thing I have done to improve my mind for ages and will continue to practice the mental and physical exercises I learnt. I also enjoyed meeting a new group of people, we intend to continue meeting once a month for a chat over coffee. Thank you Jessie you were great.

Robyn Wilson

A revelation! What a wake up call and an exciting view of the new possibilities ahead of me.

Sally, Auckland

I think focus-connect-rehearse says it all for me. I met a man a few days ago and he was actually admiring my bike. We ended up chatting and he told me his wife was Sue and he was Neil. Bingo!

Bevan, Auckland, NZ

Jude was so inspiring. I am sorry it has to come to an end!

Carol, Auckland

It is an extremely stimulating and useful course at any age or stage.  I like the follow-up emails which remind me to keep up the things I’ve learnt.

Jane B, NZ

Thanks for yesterday’s ‘power hour!’ After the training, I spoke about the content with my husband and he particularly liked (as well as I) methods to learn someone’s name by taking a mental picture and making relevant associations. We will both be trying this as and when we meet new people.

Thelma, Auckland, NZ

“I really enjoyed the course and the calm and gentle way you led us – thank you very much.”

Angela,

Very worthwhile course & well worth the few hours it takes. Lots of good new tricks to aid the ageing grey matter!

Roger Milne, NZ

Very fulfilling and engaging course. Excellent presentations that were relevant to everyday happenings

Glenys, Auckland

The course has been so enjoyable and it’s with real enthusiasm that I leave each week to test my knowledge.  Absolutely inspiring.  It’s like eating something delicious and wanting more.

Mary, Northland, NZ
“The course has made a difference already.  Not just remembering things I need to do,  but motivation for the act of doing them.
Today I contacted 2 friends whose birthday it is. I usually remember but don’t necessarily act upon it. The relief of doing this, instead of having to remember again another day is wonderful. “
 
“You made important stuff such fun. ” 
Margaret, Feilding NZ

I am very much enjoying my Brainfit class

Liz Hannan

The course was fun and well presented. I found myself looking forward to each class and was very pleased when I got the opportunity to catch up on one class that I was unable to attend at the time.
