Our Story

IntraQuest was born out of both a passion to support others in their journey of self-discovery, and in response to personal challenges. We believe that we learn best when we learn first for ourselves before applying to others. It's all about going on an 'internal journey' - that's what 'Intra-Quest' stands for!
  • “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”

Founding Director - Well-being & Community Services

Although my approach...

Director - Business Development & Administration
I am a personal development specialist, trainer and coach. I am an avid believer in the power of self-awareness and understanding. It’s impossible to know what we are trying to achieve without first having a clear sense of where we are now, and this is something that I have spent many years working through with individuals, leaders and organisations. I have worked in corporate learning and development teams for over 15 years, and have had the pleasure of supporting...

Therapist - Well-being Services
I am a Child Centred Play and Filial Therapist. Before becoming a Play Therapist I was a Primary School teacher and I met a lot of children who had had difficult life experiences which were affecting them every day in the way they felt about themselves and the world around them.
