International Self-Esteem expert to speak in Auckland

Half of women around the world see family relationships as having the greatest impact on their self-esteem and 66% think they’re expected to be more physically attractive than their mother’s generation.*

International self-esteem expert, Dr Christina Berton, will be in Auckland in February and speaking about her work helping thousands of Mexican mothers and daughters understand the importance of a healthy self-esteem.

“The impact of media and society on women’s self image is controversial.

“But we can move beyond blaming the fashion industry, Hollywood and others by getting our own perspective right – and making sure our daughters, sisters, mothers and friends do the same,” says Christina.

The Amara Pro Self Esteem Foundation, Christina co-founded in 2008 has worked with tens of thousands of Mexican families. The most recent initiative in partnership with retail outlet Walmart has seen the design of workshops, e- learning courses and workshops to empower female employees.

Her work inspired Auckland woman Penny Stevens who established The Liberty of Being Me Foundation which offers Mother & Daughter workshops based on the successful Amara model.

“Mums and daughters have a special bond which can be vital in preparing young women for what lies ahead,” says Liberty of Being Me Foundation president, Penny Stevens.

“Good self-esteem helps us deal with life’s challenges. Creating awareness about it is a proactive and preventative approach to a range of issues faced by girls and young women today,” she says

Christina Berton will be speaking at an event hosted by The Liberty of Being Me Foundation.


6.30pm, Tuesday 21st February St Columba Centre, 40 Vermont St, Ponsonby $10 per person (includes light refreshments) thelibertyofbeingme@gmail.com or (09) 5759996

  • These are more valuable than their weight and are
    treated differently by the moving company. Many long distance service movers
    offer moving forward spots. Typical of many unsuspecting shoppers, the inquiry suggested they hadn’t taken a realistic inventory of the scope of services needed to move them, investigated the legitimacy of the
    advertising service pitching the ‘unbelievably’ low, low price,
    or thoroughly vetted the backgrounds of each of the
    transportation service providers they were considering surrendering all of their
    worldly possessions to.
