ABOUT US

Feelings of wellbeing are fundamental to the overall health of an individual, family, team, and organization enabling them to successfully overcome difficulties and achieve what they want out of life. Past experiences, attitudes, and outlook can all impact wellbeing as can physical or emotional trauma following specific incidents. At A & K Thomson Limited we are specialists in lived experience wellbeing training, coaching, mentoring, and pastoral care designed to enhance your wellbeing and turn adversity into opportunity.

As a proudly Maori and Pasifika-owned business, manaakitanga is deep-rooted into our business. This is evident in our social good initiative, where profits from our workshops delivered to businesses fund our free deliveries to youth across Auckland’s most deprived locations. We believe that access to quality education should not be a barrier to our vulnerable communities.
