Hi, I'm Vicky
Read on for a glimpse into the story behind this page...
It was during my third year of my Bachelor of Science in Psychology at Otago University in New Zealand that I completed a developmental psychology paper, which sparked my love for educating.
There is plenty more to a teachers role than what you might consider the main core areas (Literacy and numeracy). I personally enjoy challenging students' views towards learning, especially when they are not confident in various areas. Watching children change their opinions and beliefs over the year makes the role of an educator very rewarding. I often remind my students that no two brains are the same, our brains are even different from the day before. We are always learning and growing, and that never stops.
I also love teaching my students how to be amazing little humans to themselves and each other through kind acts, showing gratitude, being inclusive, showing empathy towards others, be accepting and understanding. I admire the positive influence teachers can have in shaping and moulding a childs brain, their life and therefore society.
Today my love for psychology and educating extends beyond children to adults and focuses on mindbody health and relational well-being. Your individual elements such as your thoughts, beliefs, health habits, physiology, behaviour, and your social relationships influence your health and well-being. It's important to take a holistic approach when looking after your health.
If you're interested in learning about human behaviour, mastering behaviour change through sustainable habits, and how to enhance your physical and mental health, manage stress more efficiently, develop a strong and healthy mind and brain, build emotional resilience, find your values and how to align with them, work towards your mental and physical goals, and how to care for your whanāu (families) and community well-being then follow @victorialouisefuller on Instagram or keep up to date through this website.
If you have any thoughts or questions, please do get in touch. I currently don't offer any services or coaching, however, in June 2023, Mindbody Health coaching and workshops will become available.
For now, I hope what is shared resonates with you and supports you in some way.
