To Book Your Session

Congratulations on your decision to move deeper within and towards understanding your purpose! The next step is to connect with me - Vanessa.

We'll have a 15 minute korero (talk) over the phone and if you'd like to go ahead we'll coordinate a date for your session.

I use the Deloraine Cottage for my sessions. As we also rent this out for short terms stay, on places like So, we are dependent on availability. 

You can view availability and either book on the Deloraine Cottage website for at least 2 nights for your QHHT session or I will do the booking and email you confirmation. Check in is from 3pm. Sessions are approximately 6 hours. So, we will conduct the QHHT session the next day at 9.30am. The session may go as long as 3.30pm. Then checkout is the following day at 11am. 

The 6 Hour QHHT session price is included in the 2 night stay at the  Deloraine Cottage, regardless  of whether you choose to stay here or go home if you live in or near Whangarei. 

Price as at 16th June 2020 is $400 + GST. For current prices please visit website.

A $100 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of your booking to reserve the Deloraine Cottage which will be applied to the cost of your session. The balance is payable 48 hours prior to your session. You can pay by credit card, bank transfer or cash. 

If you would like to come as a group, then please book an additional night for each subsequent person. 

I don't charge additionally for my time when held here at the Deloraine Cottage. However, there is the option if you live locally, for me to come to you and do this session in your home. It is best that there are no distractions for the 6 hours we do the session. In that case, the rate is $200 + GST for my time. 

You can find us here at 50 Konini St, Parahaki, Whangarei.

Where are sessions Held?

At present all session are held in person at the Deloraine Cottage on our beautiful 2.5 acre park like grounds. Located halfway between Whangarei Airport and the City Centre in Parahaki, Whangarei, New Zealand. It is recommended that you stay the night after your QHHT session and allow yourself the valuable time to listen to your QHHT recording and integrate the insights, information, healing and recommendation that transpire in your session. 

Take advantage of this opportunity to connect with yourself and relax and unwind here at Deloraine Cottage located 2 hours North of Auckland. If there are several of you who would like a session, it makes a great idea to come and tautoko (support) and awhi (care) each other on this magical journey of discovery and self-healing. 

During your private session we do ask that we have the cottage to ourselves. But not to worry, Whangarei is surrounded by beautiful beaches, bush and coastal walks. Or take advantage of nearby walks listed below, all within 5 mins drive, and reconnect with papatuanuku (mother earth).   

Consider turning your stay into a wellness retreat. There are many wonderful local providers of yoga, ascension breathing, sound therapy and maori massage (mirimiri and romiromi) to name a few. We are happy to work with you to create a personalised QHHT retreat package inviting local wellness providers to the Deloraine Cottage. Alternatively, you can visit them, such as those offered under the health and wellness collective at  Kāri Āhua, 22 Bank St, Whangarei.

If the Deloraine Cottage is booked out on your preferred dates, I can come to your place, or we may be able to use the rooms at Kāri Āhua if available. 

Sessions cannot be done via skype call. If you cannot make a trip to Whangarei, New Zealand. Then visit for a list of trained QHHT facilitators around the world. Alternatively, if you have a group of 3+ people all wanting QHHT sessions and you live in NZ, Australia or the Pacific Islands, I can look at dates to travel to where you live and facilitate your groups individual sessions.
