In Mãori, Katoa means: all, total, awhole, everybody. Everyone is different and it is important to discover and embrace your unique qualities and talents. Katoa supports children and young people to believe in themselves, their path and their decisions.

The spiral shaped logo is a koru (Mãori for ‘loop’) inspired by a new, unfurling silver fern frond and symbolizing new life, growth, strength and peace. The circular shape of the koru helps to convey the idea of perpetual movement while the inner coil suggests a return to the point of origin.[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koru]

The main vision of Katoa is that children are naturally open, curious and creative. Sometimes there are distortions or reasons that a child cannot let these qualities flourish. Katoa focuses on discovering the reasons why the disturbances occur and then working with the child and his environment, to allow the natural qualities to re-appear.

Katoa also works with children (and their family and teachers) with impaired social-emotional development, behavioral problems and children coping with a trauma. Katoa believes in an integrated approach that supports the child in different areas of his life.

Katoa offers specialized custom made counselling for children, schools and families. Depending on the specific needs, Katoa develops an integrated plan to support and increase the autonomy of the child, the group, the teacher and to increase the family in the best possible way.

My name is Juliette Rietberg. Together with my husband and 2 sons we have made the adventurous leap to emigrate from the Netherlands to New Zealand.  

Since I can remember there is a longing in me to go deeper into the experience of life and to discover what the natural qualities are in me as well as in other people.

My focus has always been on children and young people. Especially those who have special needs and experience difficulties in life. I have been a (special needs) teacher since 1994. I have taught at schools for children with (severe) learning and behaviour problems, young children with a psychiatric disorder and severe behaviour problems and mainstream primary schools on different ages.

In Nepal I was a teacher in a rural area and in Mongolia I coached teachers, schools and the government how to deal with children with a mental disorder. I also worked as teachers coach how to deal with difficult behavior and I gave psycho-physical competence training for children and young adults. In addition to this I am an Integrative child therapist as well.

Besides teaching and coaching, I started to look for alternative ways in which to reach the inner strength of children and young people. My aim is to enable them to recognize and experience this power in themselves and act from this. To achieve this, I experienced that Rock and Water is a very valuable tool.

Another method I work with is Sound Therapy. The severing of certain blockages through the vibration of sound has been proved a very effective way to address both physical and mental problems.

While living in New Zealand I had the privilege to learn Atua Healing. A beautiful non-invasive healing method - I combine with Sound Therapy - which provides a deepening and gentle way of healing on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.

Katoa offers specialized custom made counselling for children, adults, families, schools and organizations. Depending on the specific needs, Katoa develops an integrated plan to support and increase the autonomy of the child, the person, the family, the group and the teacher, in the best possible way.
