Fiona is especially gifted in understanding health and well-being at a very personal level and focusing on solutions and regimens designed for the individual’Dr Denis Waitley PhD – former Chairman of Psychology, U.S. Olympic Committee’s Sports’ Medicine Council, author “The Psychology of Winning”
‘I have worked with Fi since 2009. She has been a big encouragement to me in staying focused on my health goals. I find her background as an Osteopath and Businesswoman extremely helpful in guiding me toward optimal health. Fi’s an in-tune listener. She’s reassuring, yet she’s quick to throw out a challenge to help me grow. I am grateful for her vast knowledge and loving heart and she’s committed to serve every client as a unique individual.’Dr Paige Hunter PhD – Business owner, entrepreneur, Texas USA
‘Before meeting with Fi, I found I hard to fuel my body with enough of the ‘right’ stuff. Training 6 days a week means there’s a lot of eating – to have enough energy for everything, including when I’m not training!

Fi was able to guide me in the right direction by offering several different options for getting as many nutrients as possible from the foods I choose to eat. I found that adding to my regular diet gave me enough energy to train at a high level and get the most out of my work. These adjustments are also helping me to maintain good health.

Fi’s experienced in offering a wide variety of options to get the best for you in every situation.’Nick Southgate – Pole Vaulter, Auckland New Zealand

‘I was having challenges with overall health & recovery. Quality of my training sessions was dramatically reduced, and I would often fall sick towards the end of an 8 week training cycle or after a big competition. Sleep was scarce and I just felt I wasn’t recovering mentally and physically.

I’m currently following Fi’s lifestyle recommendations, including optimizing my nutrition, and I’m finding fewer small injuries and reduced swelling in my calves and improved overall recovery. I now sleep 8hours a night and haven’t needed to take any antibiotics.

Her vast experience, plus being able to understand the importance of what I do as an athlete makes Fi qualified to advise me. But also her ability to understand the importance of my general health outside and beyond my athletic career, which is hard to find in most sports systems as they often focus on you current health not your future health.

I would recommend you to anyone looking help with their health. One of the things I’ve learnt and benefited from by working with you, is that even someone who is fit and healthy, as well as the average person, can benefit and improve their health and life by working with you.

I am 100% satisfied with my results, and I believe my overall health has improved.’Portia Bing – one of NZ’s top Heptathletes – 1st National Heptathlon (for 2 consecutive years), 1st Long jump European Juniors

“The main health concern I had when I first started working with Fi was my lowered immunity, I was finding flu’s and colds hard to keep away and even harder to get rid of.

Fi gave me thorough and practical lifestyle adjustments to make, including building some low GI natural foods and nutritionals into my daily routine.

These have made a massive change to my situation. My immunity was better straight away, and I was able to battle the bugs way more efficiently.

Practical experience is what gives me confidence in Fi, and just her spark, energy and healthy appearance are living proof of her suggestions.

Just starting with her health-style steps would make a massive difference to anybody.”Shannon Pepper – Designer, Business Owner, Auckland, NZ

‘I have known Fi since 1988, when we were training to be Osteopaths, and right from the start I could see that Fi was a dedicated student, always going beyond what she needed to know, looking for that extra knowledge.

Fi moved to NZ and since that time we’re reconnected, and I now have the pleasure of Fi being my stalwart mentor. She works so hard, and shows that same dedication to detail and understanding as she always had, she is patient, inspiring and hardworking.

She’s always been able to answer any questions I’ve had, she seems to have an abundance of experience and is happy to share this with others quite selflessly.I do feel privileged to have her as my mentor, and know that where ever life takes us, I have a genuine friend for life.’

“After years of consulting in the wellness industry, I am happy to recommend Fi Jamieson-Folland. She is teacher/consultant/mentor who walks her talk. Fiona is extremely knowledgeable in most aspects of health and wellness.

Whether she is counseling one to one or speaking in front of thousands, I have witnessed her compassionate yet powerful style. She gives those she’s mentoring the knowledge and power to walk the path they deserve.”Laura Brownwood – Health coach, Business Owner, San Diego, USA

‘My reason for consulting with Fiona is due to my health situation which had taken a turn for the worst. In 2005 I had been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue syndrome and Glandular Fever. I had been to see many doctors, specialists and clinicians in the UK but nothing had seemed to work.

In 2007 I was introduced to Fiona who was able to talk with me over the phone regarding my situation. Fiona advised me with a range of lifestyle adjustments including nutritional considerations, and my symptoms have transformed.

Regular connections to gain momentum, make adjustments and see how things are going has made a big difference. Fi is always thinking outside the box to look at other causes and possible issues that may be contributing.

Fi’s approach is different – based on 20+ years of experience in Health care and being trained as an osteopath with many years of clinical practise. Plus her amazing open personality, so she’s able to work with you personally. Fiona is all about helping others achieve greatness with better health and lifestyle.

Fi brings positivity at every stage of your journey, she’s driven to help, offers fantastic guidance and is overall a wonderful person to work with.

I would highly recommend Fiona to be the person to work with, to create your ideal health and lifestyle.’Neil Maidment – Osteopath, endurance athlete

‘I have known Fiona on a professional level since 2008 and over that time have been exposed to her both professional and precise expertise in her field and also her gentle, caring side.

Fiona has exceptional skills with her in depth knowledge of the human body through her studies as an Osteopath, and experience working in the field of wellness and health for many years now. She consistently shares this knowledge with, and is passionate about it for everyone. I find it still very interesting that she can offer something new to me at every encounter, whether it is a new discovery or result, or because science has qualified something new and breath-taking.

One thing that really sticks out and is hard to find these days, is her direct, but caring approach to finding a solution to what you are seeking, whether it be health or deeper emotional/head stuff that holds us back from our own potential. She is one of the most gracious people I have consistently been engaged with and she has always showed me compassion, direction and time – one of the most precious commodities of all being our time!

Thank you so much Fi for sharing your passion with me.’Vicky Jamieson – Beauty therapist, Business owner

Fi’s medical background, continous study and a panel of professionals at her fingertips, makes me feel completely comfortable sharing personal health issues and ensuring precise and simple helpful advice. Fi is understanding and empowering, which I find essential for personal development.

She has vast experience both personal and through working closely with others, that she accesses to assist in a way you can connect with, and then allows you to develop the action plan together. When I have not followed through, I am completely comfortable sharing this with Fi and she encourages me effectively in my next steps.

‘Fi Jamieson-Folland has provided several Parent Workshops, which we organized in conjunction with the school’s Parent Teacher Association and Health Promoting Schools Team.

We found her very personable with practical interactive dialogue. The ‘day to day’ issues of parenting children including dealing with allergies, varying nutritional needs and irregular sleeping patterns were covered in a user-friendly way. The material was easily understood by the audience and included practical support for parents to action upon going home. Responses to questions from the audience were objective and clearly explained. A number of ethnicities were represented amongst the audience and the need for clearly spoken simple language was realised.

The parents within the audience were very focused and engaged throughout the hour presentation. They were free to ask relevant questions, and further clarity was established through Fi’s answers.
We know that the talks were seen as extremely positive in supporting parenting issues, and would endorse any further presentations provided by Fi Jamieson-Folland.’Ken McKay – Principal, Peta Lindstrom – Associate Principal, Lady Star of the Sea School, Auckland, NZ

‘When I turn to someone for advice (information) on health, I look for three qualities. I want an expert practitioner who has a broad perspective on health care and can provide guidance on disease prevention as well as disease treatment. I want someone who is an expert listener and who will provide me with personalized advice that meets my needs and wishes. And importantly, I want guidance from someone who walks their talk; someone who obviously takes their own health seriously. Fiona Jamieson-Folland meets these criteria in full. She is an Osteopath with many years of clinical experience. She is a keen student of nutrition and its role in health. She has in intense interest in people, and she is intent on personalizing her advice. And she is a picture of health.’Dr Tim Wood PhD – Senior Research scientist, Utah, USA
“I’ve battled with eating disorders and yoyo dieting for at least 20 years. I’m aware that I’ve done significant damage to my body and health over the years and realised after chatting with Fi that I could actually look to repair this damage.

I was also seriously burnt out and relying on energy drinks and caffeine to keep me topped up. The result was a very worn out me, especially having not slept a full night in 10 years. I felt tired and looked tired and because of the lack of nutrition I feel my brain was not working at it’s optimum!

My first consultation with Fi was an eye opener. To have what was happening in my body clearly explained, in relation to the choices I had made as well as the outcomes I was experiencing, was a life changer. I also was introduced to a raw vegan restaurant and was amazed that I could eat anything in the cabinet and that it would SERVE MY HEALTH!

I couldn’t believe that this style of food could be so delicious. The health recommendations Fi made regarding balance, water and nutrition were so on the mark with regards to my situation then, as well as keeping relevant now to my current situation, and I’m grateful for the education.

Learning about how important vital nutrients are, and the biochemistry behind the process has been fascinating for me – particularly with the core nutrients I’m now incorporating. Understanding the nutritional triggers for cravings and the deficiencies that lead to illnesses was also amazing. I think the education is the thing I clicked with the most. Once I have the ‘ why’ answered, it makes the ‘ what and the how’ easier for me to assimilate. I also found the information and spontaneous training of Fi’s special green smoothees was incredibly valuable as I would never have known or considered making one!

I like that Fi’s walked this path – that she had challenging health problems and decided to research this and take her own course of action. The back story and experience is what really sold the process for me.
If you want to live a more energetic, authentic and calmer life, you need to speak to my friend Fi! My energy is a million times better, I sleep more peacefully and I look much better…..Give her a call!’

Fi, I really enjoy working with you. Not only are you committed to the health of the individual, you’re commuted to the health and well being of the world which I believe to be an inspirational trait.

You genuinely care about people and your authenticity in wanting clients to find more than just wellness is admirable. You truly want to see people live the best, healthiest and happiest life they can and remind them that the choice is theirs.

You make wellness achievable. Thanks for being an inspiration to me.”Monique Bradley – International Entertainer and Business owner, Auckland NZ
