Kia Ora. I am Emma Heaney-Yeatts. Welcome to mybestme - where women and parents learn to empower themselves to be the woman, the mother, and the partner, they want to be.

I am a mum of two young boys, a fully qualified Counsellor and full member of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors. To find out more about me and mybestme, click here.

I am a founder of the Kāpiti EMDR and Therapy Centre. Click here to find out about us.


I provide personal therapy services, especially for women and couples. My favourite therapeutic specialties are Eye Movement Desensitisation Therapy (EMDR), IMAGO Relationships Therapy, and Drawing Therapy. I am ACC sensitive claims registered.

EMDR is fantastic for resolving any symptoms resulting from old trauma or wounds. This dovetails well with the IMAGO Relationships Therapy, which is all about empowering each of you in your partnership to become each other’s best healers. 

The foundation of my work is Client Centred Practice - so you’re making the decisions on what you want to focus on. I also love Interactive Drawing Therapy, which is a slow and gentle approach, but deep as well. My experience is primarily working with women, and also with couples as they negotiate their parenting journey.
