Based in Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt and also online, I’m available to help you with a range of health issues – eczema, fatigue, anxiety, digestive issues, IBS, heavy periods, headaches, low immunity, and weight management, to name just a few. Often it’s when things are at their worst and multiple things are going wrong that clients find me, maybe when they can’t get an answer from their doctor or they’re just fed up with not feeling like they should!

Naturopathy (member NMHNZ)


What to expect at the first appointment

We’ll start with a detailed discussion about your health goals plus your health history, family history, signs and symptoms. Sometimes  testing may be necessary to clarify things objectively, this may be in  the form of bloods tests, food and environmental sensitivity hair  tests, or hair tissue mineral analysis tests (to measure minerals and heavy metals), or other tests.

We’ll create a treatment plan together which may incorporate changes to your nutrition, and lifestyle, plus possibly  homeobotanicals, supplements, essential oils, hydrotherapy,  BodyTalk, NLP, Reiki. Often the treatment plan will need to provide support for several months, in order to make a change last long term many things have to be strengthened within the body/mind. This is part of not just treating the symptoms but understanding why those symptoms have occurred in the first place.

As an example, to treat eczema I look at food sensitivities as these might create or aggravate the eczema, plus strengthening the skin barrier, plus ensuring the digestive system and elimination pathways are functioning, provide support for the liver and kidneys, plus stress management. This can’t be done all at once as the body will just become more overwhelmed.


Naturopathy Pricing Options

Initial consultation (approx 2 hours) $180

A longer first appointment for those who don’t intend to have a 2nd or further follow-up appointment. Ideal for acute issues, and/or for those wanting ideas quickly who then wish to run with the information without follow-up support.

Package combining initial and follow-up consultation $330
Package of three appointments of approx. 1 hour, set 2 weeks apart over 6-8 weeks. We can set a treatment plan into action and check in to make changes as they’re required. I’ll offer suggestions over the 3 appointments rather than all at once. Ideal for those intending to make lifestyle and food changes, to change habits, address chronic conditions.

Please note these conditions: Discounted to a cost of $330 when booked as a package, paid in advanced and all three appointments must be attended within three months of the first appointment.


Follow-up consultation (approx 1 hour) $100
For clients who have previously had an initial appointment (within the past 5 years).

Talk to me about packages for groups of 5 or 10 follow up sessions, ideal for ongoing support of dietary and lifestyle changes. Ideal as a check-in each month.


BodyTalk (approx 1-1.5 hours) $100

I use BodyTalk in many treatments as it can help someone out of stress (fight/flight) and into healing mode, without this a person can remain stuck in stress where their body’s ability to heal is reduced. The body is so clever at healing when we nurture it, but when we continue to throw daily stress, toxins, and trauma at it, it becomes less efficient, and pain and disease can thrive.

During a BodyTalk session, the practitioner uses muscle testing and a set of specific questions to identify issues, links may be established between different parts of the body, and by gently tapping the head (to activate the nervous system) and the chest (to store the change) we can stimulate the body to move into healing mode.

Combining BodyTalk (and sometimes also NLP) with Naturopathic knowledge means that my clients can resolve some issues faster.  Nutrition and lifestyle changes are often key to making improvement in health, however I also delve into what may be generating stress, how to change the way a client views their problems, look at their past, present, and future with a fresh perspective, remove self-sabotage, and generally reprioritise themselves.


Reiki (approx 1 hour) $100

During a Reiki treatment the client remains fully clothed, they sit or lie down and simply rest ready for the practitioner to connect to the Reiki energy and place hands gently on or just above the client. It’s a very relaxing treatment, working on an emotional and physical level. Many clients go to sleep, or fall into a meditative like state.

I am a Reiki Master/Teacher so available to teach and attune you to the wholesome, loving energy that is Reiki energy. There are three levels of Reiki:

  • First degree is for treating yourself, a beautiful way of settling for sleep each night, allowing deep relaxation, or when you’re not feeling well, to release physical and/or emotional blockages. Maybe use it to bless your food, with the plants in your garden, calm your environment be that at work, at home, or travelling in between, treat your family – my cats love the boost a treatment gives them. I attuned my children so they always had Reiki support.
  • Second degree amplifies the Reiki energy. Symbols are introduced providing additional power, emotional healing, and distance healing. It becomes possible to send Reiki healing to loved ones in different locations around the world. Or send Reiki to clear the energy of a room. Even send it to yourself at future event you’re worrying about.
  • Third degree is the Master degree with its own symbol, this is where students learn how to attune others to the Reiki energy.

NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)

Established in the 70’s by John Grinder and Richard Bandler. NLP was created following observations of experts in certain fields of techniques around excellence of communication. Think of it as a collection of practical tools, strategies, and enhanced communication to empower your life.

Have you had a conversation where what you thought was said was different to someone else’s understanding? Interpretation of any communication is always based on only a very small part of what is verbally said. Yes, consider body language, but also consider our unique perception of the world around us, everyone is different, one person may be interested in the future, another the past, a thinker vs a feeler, or a detail vs a global outlook, then there is our previous experience of the world, how we distort communication based on our beliefs, memories, attitudes, previous decisions. If we can expand our communication so that we can interpret what is being said by our partners, children, colleagues, friends, and the world, then we can remove friction and misunderstanding. Perhaps our self-esteem is knocked every time we talk to our boss, or when we look in the mirror, using NLP our previously held beliefs and limiting decision can be altered allowing for change.

NLP also considers that in order to make a change we have to be ready to make that change, sounds logical! However, if we think we’re ready for that change but unable or unwilling to put the effort into activating the change, then we’re simply not quite ready. For example, you’re not going to become fluent in a language unless you dedicate many hours into learning and practising it, no excuses.

Additional Tests

QRA testing

This testing is a form of kinesiology, a way of testing the bio-energetic status of the body’s key organs and glands using a proven testing technique of medically accepted reflex points. The points that are tested are based on high energy meridian centres – acupuncture/acupressure points. This testing provides a greater degree of accuracy when suggesting specific supplements and associated dosage for the individual. QRA is generally part of the initial consultation, however I can offer QRA testing as a standalone test.

Food and Environmental Sensitivity Hair Test

This involves sending a small hair sample to a lab to measure the degree of sensitivity to a range of approx. 100 foods and environmental substances.

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)

This involves sending a larger selection of hair (about 1 tablespoon) to a lab so that levels of minerals and heavy metals can be measured using a mass spectrometer. So much information can be learned via this test, for example if magnesium is lower then calcium you may have elevated cholesterol and blood pressure, a deficiency in magnesium may reduce ability to cope with stress and high calcium levels may result in calcium circulating in the blood and not getting into the bones.

CDSA Stool Tests

To identify causes of diarrhoea, presence of blood, presence of bacteria, parasites, or disease. Particularly helpful for on-going unexplained issues with digestion and bowel motions.
