Hi there Sweetpea,

I’m Lisa Conroy and believe life is an exciting journey, full of experiences and challenges that help us grow and evolve.  I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to introduce myself and my beautiful company, Box of Chocolates!

Born a Geordie Lass, but been living in NZ as a proud Kiwi Citizen since 1973, married to my soulmate and best friend Mike with two fantastic sons that make me smile regularly.  I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my family in Wellington and extended family over in the Wairarapa, with many delicious and humorous weekends away.

As a young mum I was actively involved in the community as President of our local Plunket Branch, the Kindergarten Committee, then onto college with many years of fundraisers, activities and playing taxi driver – I loved it all!

I’ve worked in a variety of industries and roles from floristry to IT, the film industry, aviation, hospitality, sport, health and Community Research.  I adore travelling and experiencing other cultures while meeting new people, so I will keep buying Lotto as I still have many countries to visit on my wish list!

I am passionate about trying new experiences and keeping life interesting, such as running scrumptious Wellness/Spiritual, Silent and CHERISH retreats within NZ and Internationally.  Offering creative Art Therapy workshops, Happiness Projects, , along with my 1:1 Holistic Empowerment and group coaching, hosting Soulsisters FITme and Detox Programmes, Reiki healing and Akashic Soul Readings - life is never boring!

I gained my Life, Career and Wellness Coaching certification through Worklife Solutions and became a certified Reiki Healer in Level 1 & 2 + Masters 3A, along with Indian Head Massage Certification with Lynda Johnson from That's Better.  I did my Akashic Records training with Chris Wilson from Akashic Readings NZ and am trained to Level 3.

Health and Well-being are super important to me and I enjoy mindfulness, yoga, getting creative, sound healing, walking in nature, adventures as well as taking time out to “just BE!”

I run regular sweet deals and combo's with my services which have proven to be popular, and you can read many testimonials/reviews through my website or on my FB page here

It’s not an easy task juggling lots of hats, striving for success, staying positive and taking time out just for YOU, but you owe it to yourself to lead a happy, purposeful and meaningful life that you love!

I run regular Wellness events to empower women to live authentic, amazing lives!  To find out about these events  check out my “What’s happening” page, and my “Services” page to enquire about your own unique experience with Box of Chocolates.

I’d love to hear from you and find out how we can work together on assisting you with your own life goals, dreams and challenges!
