Coral has worked across several industries and continents with a focus on behavioural science. Her work has focused on achieving outcomes through behavioural modification and psychological adaption. Coral applies the Māori wellness model, Te Whare Tapa Whā to all she does to drive positive results in any environment, whether professional or personal. Te Whare Tapa Whā is represented as the 4 supporting walls of a whare (home). Taha tinana is physical health and the capacity for physical growth and development. Taha wairua is one’s spiritual health, essentially one’s life force. For many our taha wairua determines who we are as an individual and how we contribute to the collective. Taha whānau is one’s family and community health, this is our capacity to belong, to care and to share where individuals are part of wider social systems. Taha hinengaro is our mental health and is one’s capacity to communicate, to think, and to feel. These activities contribute to our thoughts, feelings and emotions which are integral components of one’s body and soul and contribute significantly to our overall health and wellbeing. Te Whare Tapa Whā relates directly to her experience at Club Vitality.
