Ko Aorangi te Marae o toku Mama
Ko Aoraki te mauka
Ko Temuka te awa
Ko Kaati Mamoe me
Kai Tahu nga iwi
Ko Arowhenua te Marae, o toku Papa
Ko Mereti Taipana ahau,
Tena Koutou Katoa

Kiaora and greetings all! Above you will see a pepeha, this tells you a lot about me. As I am of Maori descent I have chosen to use the traditional pepeha to tell you a bit about myself. This is done by telling you the tribal areas of my parents, Manawatu and Arowhenua (in the South Island) , the iwi Im from and the Marae that I belong to. In that way I like to share with you, some of my Maori culture.

I have been in the Helping Profession for 14 years, working in different agency, provider and tertiary settings. In 2007 I set up in Private Practice, working for myself had always been a dream. I now live and work in Te Papaioea (Palmerston North) in my mothers area. I have trained extensively and use different counselling models, but I also have an insightful and intuitive style when I work with people. I hope you enjoy browsing my site and if there is anything on it that you would find helpful, feel free to contact me.

Noho ora mai,

Mereti Taipana, MNZAC
