“I came across Brain Fit for Life through the Business and Professional Women’s Club and was very excited about what it offers to our expanding ‘baby boomer’ senior demographic group. Developing brain resilience and a set of skills and strategies to give confidence and sustain independent living is a wonderful thing to share. The positive personal and economic implications for participants and our country are huge. It has been immensely rewarding for me to train as a Brain Fit For Life coach and to be able to offer this wonderful resource to our community.”

Snippets from Bronwyn’s Botany class.

Bronwyn comes from Australia and has been living permanently in New Zealand since 1991. She has a background in Social Work with extended periods of employment with Alzheimers Counties Manukau, providing information and support to families caring for a person with dementia and then with Open Home Foundation, recruiting, training and supporting foster families.

Since moving to Warkworth she has liaised and been involved with a wide cross-section of community support services. She has very full involvement with the local Presbyterian church, coordinates the local arm of Fresh Perspective mentoring service, is on the Executive Committee of AIM (Adults In Motion), is an active member of Warkworth Business and Professional Women’s Club and sings with the Kowhai Singers (for fun!)


Brainfit for Life has been a 'friend' that has gently coaxed me out of my wanting to withdraw and has given me tools to grow and step out again with a new more relaxed confidence.
Bronwyn you lead an exceptionally good Brain Fit. I would say most who come are at first very nervous and shy at first but you quickly put people at ease and are sensitive to each one's personal challenges. Before long the group gels - we relax, shoulders drop, smiles appear, we open up to learn the tools of how to grow our brain !!!

I certainly will be one who passes on the benefits of Brain Fit for Life.

I am very happy with the results from my 5 sessions with Bronwyn and Brain Fit but in all aspects in life you have to put in the hard yards to get the best results. Well done Bronwyn.

Hi Bronwyn, I have benefited so much from your classes, more than I could have imagined. There are so many positive things, – like going into another room to retrieve something, a small thoughtful pause, will enable me to remember. My sleep pattern has improved, because now I am going to bed earlier and arising, alert and positive. I have done all those jobs I had put off, and subconsciously worried about. I can focus on things much better. I find that I remember things that I associate with mind or visual pictures, so much better. I do realize now that I have very poor cognitive skills, so need to do some work in this area. Thank you so much for your inspirational classes, they are calm, with no anxiety attached, and lead us gently on another way of life. They have truly changed my life style, and I am so grateful. Many thanks,

Bronwyn, thank you for leading us on this course. You were well prepared, gracious, and an excellent presenter

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.
