Our Story

The mental health statistics in New Zealand are worrying. Many people are in absolute crisis and are unable to get the help they need due to finances, social barriers or circumstance.

After many years in the health and disability sector, Kerryn Treanor decided that needed to change. Armed with a BSocSc (Hons) in Psychology and a heart full of passion, she set out to get help and support to the people who needed it most.

Now, the Empowered Life team deliver fully funded counselling and psychological help to people dealing with the effects of trauma - particularly sexual trauma.

With a diverse mixture of counsellors to support her mission, Empowered Life offer ACC Sensitive Claims counselling services in communities and prisons across New Zealand. 

Empowered Life are cutting down the barriers for New Zealanders with their team of experienced, compassionate ACC registered counsellors.

Sometimes life throws you a curveball and you find yourself in an unexpected situation. But, that doesn’t have to be the end - that is not the final chapter of your story.

With Empowered Life, you can rewrite the ending. You deserve to live an empowered life you love and we want to help you build that by walking alongside you every step of the way.
