Meet Erin Barnes

Hi & welcome to my heart and brainchild; Next Generation Wellness.

My mission is to empower and equip individuals with the education and tools to reduce stress, stirring a ripple of change that positively impacts our next generations.


Blending 18years of experience and education in Positive Psychology, Nutrition, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Advanced Mindfulness Training, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy + Exercise Physiology, I create a science and research based, sustainable and integrative approach to Elevating EVEXIA.

Taking the complex propaganda in the health and wellness sector, I transform it into simple frameworks and sustainable behaviours.

Today I use my education and integrative techniques personally to live with Rheumatoid Arthritis symptom and medication free, and to shift away from hyper-striving perfectionism and high-functioning anxiety, toward presence, productivity and energy.

I base my work on the beliefs that:

  • No one is immune to challenge, yet how we think, speak, believe and behave determines the experience of life. Our behaviour truly matters.
  • There is no Prince Charming coming to change our life.  It takes personal responsibility to step up and make changes to our neurological pathways, beliefs and environment.
  •  We can’t separate personal and professional. Authenticity across all areas of life allows us to live and lead with confidence, pride, connection and enthusiasm.
  • Sustainable change takes the layering of tiny changes (physically, emotionally, relationally + mentally) that we can succeed at most of the time, so we can go with the flow some of the time.

My decisions are always based on my core values of Integrity, Wellbeing, Empowerment, Connection, Courage, Curiosity, Authenticity + Sustainability.

I focus on creating……

Self- empowered choices V’s Reactively doing for others

Value aligned choices V’s Societal ‘to dos’

Holistic and sustainable actions V’s dabbling and quick fixes

Balanced + mindful choices V’s All or nothing/ good + bad
