I’m healthy and fit, but I managed to wake up with a completely stiff neck which was why I reached out to Fi. This is the first time this had happened and I was concerned. I am good at listening to my body and I knew I needed to seek out the best help possible as soon as possible.
After the work Fi did and the specific therapeutic stretches she gave me, I felt notably better. She really is one magic worker!
I know Fi’s qualified to guide me with my health, plus her approach is unique because she’s gone through her own health struggles and I feel that she’s learned so much through them and in turn, is able to offer and give invaluable health advice.
Health is wealth, and Fi has so much richness to give!
What I love most about Fi is her calm and tranquil energy, plus her gentle and loving nature is soothing. She has this ability to also be 100% present which made me feel heard and valued. She gives more than is expected with her recommendations and guidance which is truly amazing!

When I came to see Fi I was struggling with acne that seemed to have happened suddenly and I needed guidance to figure out why my skin was being affected, all of a sudden.
I’ve noticed a big positive impact on my skin, beginning after we started working together – including with taking the Nutritionals that Fi recommended. This is not least because I’m now getting the vital nutrients that I don’t get from my food, especially whilst I’ve been at university.
We also discussed reducing inflammation by identifying specific foods that could be affecting my skin. We clarified my needs via a food allergy test that Fi organised for me, which showed some surprising results. I then adjusted my diet to exclude and include certain foods which also help my skin heal.
I find that the most helpful outcome for me is in having someone support me and help when I’ve been at a loss of what to do. Fi has different ideas and ways to calm down my skin that aren’t the standard, conventional methods such as taking antibiotics. We’ve also assessed my exercise routine, water intake, massage therapy and blood tests to look deeper into the root cause of my skin reactions. My journey of working with Fi has evolved from being about my skin to my overall health and wellbeing
I appreciate that Fi always has lots of suggestions and options that allow me to choose what’s best for me. This is valuable as I get to select the suggestions that are doable and convenient for me.
Fi is caring, kind and understanding. I know I can be honest with her about what works, what doesn’t and she listens and doesn’t judge me or what I’m doing.
I initially came to Fi with acne but it’s turned into a broader devotion to my health and wellbeing for me.
– Emma North- Student, Entrepreneur, Matakana, New Zealand
I have been seeing Fi since January 2022 and she has been great to deal with.
I was feeling tired and had put on weight over all the lockdowns during Covid. Fi has a wealth of knowledge and has really helped me get my health back on track with her advice and recommendations on my health care as I was feeling like I was stuck in a rut.
Fi is very positive and has a real empathy with her clients and I would recommend her to anyone who is keen to make changes in their lifestyle.
-Laurie Farr- Legal Secretary, Wellsford, New Zealand
Fi recommended various Nutraceuticals and gave me invaluable advice on diet and exercise. This combination of lifestyle guidance was what I needed.
Fi also reminded me to stop worrying, take my time, and let my body adjust to the new supplements, exercise, and general routine.
I believe most of us find change difficult and I am no exception. Over time and with patience my body started changing. Today I am a much healthier and happier individual.
I would recommend Fi to anyone wanting advice on health or a generally healthy lifestyle as she has a wealth of experience. She really listens to you, is very easy to talk to, and has a lovely disposition with a lifetime of experience. I don’t think there is anything she has not tried.
Fi certainly walks the talk. Her energy knows no bounds and she is one of the most genuine people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. She has always been accessible to me even when she lived overseas for a number of years.
Thank you Fi!
I am grieving, I was depressed, I felt unwell physically, spiritually, emotionally and mentally. I smoked and am overweight.
I reached out to Fi in August 2021, asking if she could help me, as I didn’t want to go on antidepressants or fill my body with any more medications. So going to the GP again wasn’t an option.
From the start, Fi was so kind and understanding.
I was so unsure of how to move forward, or where to start, but knew I had to do something. Fi made an appointment for me to meet with her and our consults have turned out to be far more than I was expecting.
On my first appointment Fi made me very aware of how I was using language, and helping me to own where I am at that moment. Also to acknowledge that my body has been through so much.
I’ve discovered that Fi has many years of dealing with people from many walks of life and different life challenges, both physical and mental. I have the belief Fi’s firm but kind guidance would and could help me work through everything, and it turns out I’m right.
I have had cranial Osteopathy on and off for years, but hadn’t had any treatment for many years.
As soon as Fi started working on my body I could feel my body starting to unlock straight away. I felt like I could breathe deeply for the first time in a very long time. It was such a lovely relief.
Driving home after my first appointment, I made a promise to myself to stop smoking, start walking five times a week and drink at least two litres of water a day.
Fi had given me the tools and guidance and a starting point to help myself on a wellness journey.
My first walk left me crying and so angry that I had let myself get in this terrible mess, as I was huffing and puffing and really struggling. However it was a fabulous wakeup call and just gave me the determination I needed to simply continue to put one foot in front of the other.
If you’re wondering about her approach, Fi guides you all the way with messages and phone calls where appropriate, ensures I have access to the best Nutritionals Protocol for my needs, so that my body has all the nutrients to help me heal from the inside out.
I’m already feeling so much better. I have a long way to go, and still have really sad days, but I have come so far already.
Even though we’ve been through months of lockdowns, Fi regularly checks in with me and continues to guide me on my wellness journey.
This remarkable woman has had her own struggles, and is the kindest person I have ever met. I will be forever grateful that she took the time to help me at a time when I needed it most.
-Sarah F – experienced Studio Manager – Matakana, New Zealand
Before I saw Fi, I had a lot of pain in my joints, plus perineural cysts.
Fi has systematically explained the relevance and importance of making several adjustments to my lifestyle habits, including my personal daily, hydration levels. Plus via my personalised Nutritionals Protocol that she designed, based on my specific needs.
Fi has helped me to make better daily food choices, including choosing healthier substitutes for foods that I love that haven’t been so great for my body. Understanding how to track for myself is proving so helpful.
Fi’s treatments plus prescription of relevant exercises after each session are such valuable tools to help me both heal and keep me on track.
After each session Fi follows up with me about how I’m feeling, which I’ve found many of the health professionals I’ve consulted don’t do.
I really appreciate Fi’s holistic and very systematic approach, and I would say that Fi is the best example of a Health Practitioner that I have ever met. She’s a strong person, who’s very knowledgeable and consistent.
For me, it’s the results that count! I recommend that you schedule an appointment to see for yourself.
I am very blessed to have Fi as my Health Guide!
-Oxana Haque – IT Engineer, Permaculture Specialist, mother – Matakana, 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
I’ve noticed multiple positive changes, including the following – I am more confident and forward-looking, able to plan and take conscious forward steps, experiencing better sleep management, able to cope better with numerous differing demands, enjoying exercise more plus weight reduction, engaging more socially, taking space for my own interests, committing to testing-type projects, balancing work and leisure more successfully, setting goals and assessing progress, delegating, feeling much less anxious, and am more trusting that I can achieve my aims, experiencing a tidy attractive office and claiming my personal power
I have greatly appreciated Fi’s skill, care and concern since we began working together in July 2019 with my personalised LifeStyle Alignment Programme. The most significant changes I have noticed are my increased confidence and increasing ability to plan forwards and meet and adjust goals, rather than my previous anxiety, backwards-looking and intense ‘navel-gazing’.
I am living less in my head and more in the world. For the first time in 20 years I have felt confident enough to sign up for and start on a professional training course. My confidence in all areas of my life is greatly increased. I am feeling happier and much more relaxed in myself and much less anxious.
I know that this has been because Fi has been walking beside me and I am amazed and so appreciative of Fi’s Support and encouragement along the way.
I would highly recommend anyone considering improving their life to undertake a period of coaching under Fi’s most compassionate and skilful guidance.
-Debbi Laycock- Property portfolio manager, sound healer, retired college teacher and lecturer, Sussex, UK
I met Fi at the end of September 2020, and within five minutes of talking to her I felt I had a life time friend. Fi’s holistic approach to life got me interested – especially as she radiates total health and wellbeing.
I am a registered nurse and massage therapist myself and I can see that Fi walks the talk. I’m 65 years old and have maintained good health, although
I was at a bit of an impasse and was ready to find appropriate guidance.
This year had challenged me with retirement for both myself and my husband, my husband having back surgery, moving home and my son being killed in a work accident.
I had contracted shingles and as a health professional I knew that this was my body’s cry for help. I took the recommended medication but knew I needed something else.
I attended one of Fi’s ‘Healthy Aging…Naturally’ workshops and was introduced to some Nutritionals to help my body’s maintenance and balance.
I was keen to supplement my diet as my appetite has really changed during this challenging year and I know I am not getting the nutrients I require to get me feeling 100% again.
I also receive consults from Fi. Being a qualified osteopath, Fi has the knowledge that’s needed, and after my consults I feel deeply relaxed, sleep well and now notice a decrease in discomfort I’d been putting up with.
Fi also gives me exercises to do that are based on my specific health picture, and they’ve made such a difference to my movement and total wellbeing.
I would recommend Fi’s approach to anybody, regardless of what you’re going through.
I would never have believed how much my body’s wellbeing was affected by the trauma of this year, and I used to think that you went for medical help after injury. Fi’s professional medical approach to my body’s needs is just amazing. She is a holistic professional realigning my body back to total health.
I know I am on the road to total health again and could not have done it without Fi’s intervention. I’m now looking forward to many more years of total wellbeing.
Thanks again Fi!
-Christine Hodges- retired nurse, massage practitioner, Auckland, New Zealand
Generally, I would consider myself in the ‘enjoying excellent health’ category with a few minor niggles. I’ve learned coping skills over the years to deal with these ‘minor niggles’ and to not allow them focus. However, in my 50’s there has been a distinct ‘stepping up’ in occurrence and intensity of these niggles making them more and more difficult to ignore. I’m talking about constipation, eczema and intermittent lower back and knee pain. Given that I’m active, eat healthy and have relatively low stress I was becoming frustrated with my worsening health outlook, refusing to accept ‘it’s just old age’ but having no idea how to address it.
I do believe the universe provides if you allow it, and totally by chance I met Fi. I was immediately drawn to her. She exudes energy, vitality, knowledge and positivity.
Although I believe aging shouldn’t equal health issues, Fi really confirmed that for me. Her holistic approach allowed us to review my nutrition, exercise, emotional balance, hydration and physical wellbeing. I was delighted to attend a workshop run by Fi to discuss Healthy Aging, naturally, including the benefits of appropriate Nutritionals and even more delighted to find out that Fi has extensive experience with my supplement brand of choice.
Fi’s helping me keep current on the most appropriate Nutritionals Protocol for my specific health picture. I’m very happy with the digestive and energy benefits which I noticed immediately and continue to experience.
Fi’s guided me to adjust my exercise program including taking up regular walking and have seen a positive, measureable impact – including on my cholesterol profile which is of course creating a cascade of other positive health benefits.
I’ve been fortunate to have a number of emotional balance counselling sessions with Fi. Her confidence and ‘gentle way of being’ allowed me a safe space to explore the emotional issues that were creating painful, ongoing relationship and health issues. This allowed me to re-evaluate many of my emotional responses and to start to be more responsive and less reactive.
For some time, I’d also been having issues with my right knee and have sought medical advice (from a number of specialists) on why it’s painful when climbing stairs. The general consensus I’d been told was that ‘there’s nothing wrong, just aches and pains of aging’. As Fi is a qualified osteopath, I asked her to investigate. After two sessions and assigned exercises, I’m excited to be experiencing reduced pain in my knee and lower back. Fi identified a problem at the back of my knee and set about addressing it – with success!
Fi has been instrumental in empowering me to look at myself as a whole and also to see myself in the context as connected to everything. Consulting with Fi has ‘given me permission’ to be ‘awake’ and allow myself to be me.
Fi has many formal qualifications around osteopathy and nutrition and many decades of experience, although it’s her willingness to guide rather than to dictate that makes what she offers so powerful. Fi knows that the human body is capable of healing itself if you can provide the right environment and she is a guru at guiding you to do just that.
What makes Fi so versatile is that she had her own battles to overcome her significant negative health issues. She is able to speak and practice from personal experience gifting her with deep insight, compassion and wisdom.
Fi inspires confidence and trust (and a little awe). She believes in balance but is very realistic about how to achieve it. Fi is a healer for the heart, mind and body.
You’ve changed my life Fi, I wasn’t fully awake until I met you – Thank you!
-Alison North- geologist, former business analyst and project manager, busy mother- Matakana, New Zealand
Before I started working with Fi I was in pain every day, and have always been a tense person. The pain I was feeling included pain in my sternum and spine (8.5 out of 10 on a pain scale). I was also having pain in my ribs on my left side and thigh pain (7.5 on a pain scale.)
Since working with Fi, my pain is often down to a 4.5, which has positively impacted my quality of life. For example, I was able to wash my hair recently without being in severe pain.
I am also more relaxed in my body which is a first for me and it’s simply wonderful to feel well, which I have not felt in over a year.
I noticed that I’m now doing my breathing exercises throughout the day without even thinking about it, plus the relaxation techniques Fi has given me are very helpful for me.
After one of my consults with Fi I felt much lighter and much more free. I felt as though I was more in touch with my true self. This is something that I have not experienced for a long time if ever at all.
Since then my husband has noticed a change in me. He says I am spicier now and he loves it. He loves seeing me starting to live without fear.
I feel that with Fi being an experienced health coach and a qualified osteopath, she’s well versed in multiple aspects of health and wellness. This gives her many different levels on which to help me. She truly listens and also guides me on the best ways to listen to my own body.
Fi is helping me address my physical ailments as well as guiding me with my nutritional questions.
I would recommend her services to anyone. She is wonderful to work with.
– Alethea Campbell, health coach, mother – New Hampshire, USA
When I first connected with Fi, I was feeling heavy, sluggish and lacking in energy.
Fi and I went over my health history and she recommended that I begin taking a specific Nutritional to balance out my system and work with my nutrition and physical activity.
Fi was very careful to take into account my doctor’s findings to make sure her recommendations are the ideal fit for what I need. The routine change was challenging as I kept forgetting to take the Nutritionals in the afternoon. Fi’s made some great suggestions for making sure I remember until it’s now simply become part of my daily routine.
The research that Fi has done is phenomenal! She was able to provide me with answers and written information to questions that I asked. As an osteopath and an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I’m assured of Fi’s knowledge and dedication to wellness and well-being.
I would say to anyone considering working with Fi that she has a wealth of knowledge and is able to guide people towards optimal health in ways that are not overwhelming but are achievable and sustainable.
Fi is a wonderful, caring, open and knowledgeable person and coach. She is calm but passionate about health and helping others live their best lives.
–Cindy Levine, Web Designer, Health and Business Coach- Vermont, USA
After recovering from an injury to my right Achilles tendon and beginning to run on roads and hills again, I started to get a severe pain in my left knee.
When I consulted Fi, she worked on my spine, nervous system and several of my muscle groups. She explained that as I had not been stretching properly whilst rehabbing, certain muscle groups that could be effecting my knee were tight and needed recalibrating, to allow realignment of my joints and more freedom of movement etc. Fi also suggested I have regular, therapeutic, deep tissue massage and complete a set of stretches each day.
After several days of doing Fi’s suggested set of stretches and receiving the massage, I found that my knee was in fact becoming less and less painful until after several weeks the pain had gone.
I have known Fi for many years, so knew of her background in Osteopathy and her passion for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and I therefore had no qualms about asking for her help. I would also readily recommend her to others who need the guidance in general lifestyle, including nutrition and exercise, or in terms of recovery from aches and pains from daily life or from an injury.
–Steve Haywood-Computer Systems Analyst, Auckland, New Zealand
– I’ve started choosing healthier drink options rather than coke, am having less cravings for salty and sweet foods (even when I’m tired or stressed; and I’m so much more aware of the way that I’m feeling affects my food choices), plus I’ve noticed I’m being positively proactive with my eating habits including my meal and snack options – even when I’m working overseas.
I’ve been sticking to my exercise routine and training program, despite it sometimes being challenging to both fit it into my schedule, or when having long work days.
The exercises Fi’s given me that I’m now doing to help rebalance my nervous system are really helping, and I’ve been creating more life-balance. I’m pleased that I’ve finally begun writing my book.
In fact, I’m now clearer about the most effective ways for me to maintain my general health, including my metabolism, weight and hormonal balance, and my nervous system.
I’m appreciating my increased energy (from a consistent 4/10 to now 8-9/10), especially in the evenings after a big day and even after a demanding training session including big bike rides, intense weights and interval training. Talking of training, I’ve been more consistent with frequency and reps.
My sleeping pattern has improved, despite frequent international travel, and I’ve noticed my first week of consistently sleeping all the way through the night until 5.30am.
My blood sugar score of 7.5 is becoming more my norm (rather than the usual 11-13 from three months ago), and consequently I’m talking with my GP about the best dosage of my medications, based on my improved results. I’m pleased to note my weight is gradually decreasing.
I’ve been reassessing my work situation based on my preferred life-work balance, and positive changes are already in the pipeline. I now have a strong sense that things are really coming together, and my healthy routines are now becoming a natural part of my life.
If you’re not sure whether it’s worth starting your LifeStyle Alignment Program with Fi, you have nothing to lose, only benefits to experience.
– Darrin Bull – Consultant Strategist, Auckland, New Zealand
More recently I was having challenges with my breathing plus when I swallowing. I was also aware of a rash on my leg that just wouldn’t go away.
I’d been trying different treatments including medications, but without consistent success. It was this point, in February 2020, that I was lucky enough to be introduced to Fi by my daughter. It’s important to me that she’s an experienced UK-qualified Osteopath (since 1992), and an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.
After my first 3 consults with Fi, it felt like a ‘miracle’! I’ve noticed many changes, including no more sweating and way less sleepiness after eating. I’m so pleased that I feel better in such a short time, when I’d experienced relatively little progress during those previous last three years.
Fi’s recommendations are often very simple, including optimal hydration for my specific needs, adjusting my intake of certain items including types of caffeine and sugar, persevering with breathing exercises, and a physical exercise program. Another vital step is my optimal Nutritional program and first-aid homeopathics that Fi’s guided me on and that she tailors to the needs of my own cells.
I believe Fi is the best Osteopath and Integrative Nutrition Health Coach you can find. I enjoy her sessions and her guidance is making such a positive difference in a very short time. I’m confident to highly recommend her and what she does.
Thank you Fi for your amazing work! I feel like a new person.
– Maria Marcella Campeanu – Mother and Grandmother, New Zealand
Her work not only includes knowledge of the physical body, and her nutritional guidance and support has meant I have more energy and clarity. I actually feel that I’m back to my pre-menopausal energy.
I recommend her services – she is an incredible gift as a healer. Thank you Fi

When physical and mental wellness are the main drivers for our personal and professional happiness and success, it makes good sense to invest your time to see how you can optimize both, and recognize maximum positive results in the short and long term. After all – these are the building blocks of life.
– Adrian Miller – Smart Hustle Entrepreneur of The Year
– NYC, writer, business owner, New York, USA
Fi’s been able to create real practical and lasting support for me in my own journey of ongoing health and wellness and we’ve been able to spark ideas off one another for how to create the most joy and wellness-freedom for the people that we serve.
I’m wholeheartedly inspired and excited to recommend Fi’s work. She has provided me with inspiration and I know that she will be able to provide you or your clients with the inspiration that they need to shift from what may be a place of ‘stuckness’, discouragement and hopelessness when it comes to their health and well being, into a place of greater freedom and joy!
– Naomi Nygaard – Food and Bodyweight Freedom Facilitator
and Founder of Fab Freedom and Fab Thriving Programs, UK + Spain
Within just 3 months I’ve noticed many changes, including the following –
– Since working with Fi, I no longer have the lower back pain that I’d been experiencing for 6 years,
– I now feel calmer in myself – including physically, emotionally and mentally; with a sense of being balanced and grounded in my nervous system.
– I’ve noticed excellent quality sleep, and have felt lighter and happier. I’ve been clearer when planning and prioritising, including with several future projects that are now in line with both my personal and work passions, as well as my life-mission.
– I feel more empowered, and now have tools I’m able to regularly use to help my sense of physical and emotional well-being, in multiple ways. If you’re ready for results, I recommend you work with Fi – you’ll be pleased you did.
– Victoria Lim – Globally-based Gyrotonics Instructor and Trainer of Gyrotonics Instructors
Fi has helped me with my general health and well-being, particularly my breathing and my thoracic spine function. I now have a far greater range of movement and I can sleep an entire night without pain.
Fi has helped me feel more relaxed, focused and even my sleep is so much better. I really enjoy the valuable well-being routines I now have in place, which also make a considerable difference for my general health. I’m definitely more empowered and clearer on my recovery-journey.
I would encourage you to be open to working with Fi. She has a holistic and very unique way of helping others. She’s very encouraging, calming, understanding and inspirational.
I thoroughly enjoy every minute I have the privilege of spending with this truly beautiful lady.
– Lyndal Wheeler – Business Owner, Auckland, New Zealand
– Monique Diamond – Entrepreneur, Queensland, Australia
I was feeling stressed, partly triggered by past traumatic experiences, and this was affecting my skin; which is much less agitated now, with way fewer breakouts. My sleeping was disrupted (at 8/10 bad), and is now at just 2/10. In fact, it was an effort for me getting out of bed in the mornings; now I hardly ever notice this (it was 7/10; now just 1/10).
The easy to follow stretches, breathing techniques, plus keeping hydrated, tweaking my Nutritionals, and reassessing my exercise routine are making a huge difference for my general wellbeing and the symptoms I was having when I went to see Fi.
I find the biomechanical alignment has been most beneficial, and I notice positive changes afterwards. Being supported to discuss what’s happening for me in a safe environment with supportive guidance for solutions is a game changer.
Fi’s expertise in her field, with her gentle approach – especially with my traumatic past experiences, are making all the difference for me. I find Fi’s peaceful presence really helps me.
Fi has a wide experience in all areas of life and she’s open, plus supportive with a holistic, all-encompassing approach. Fi’s a living testimony of the processes she teaches; encompassing the whole picture including physical and emotional. She’s also great at explaining what she’s doing, with in-depth explanations so I learn a lot!
– Leeanne Beaton – Contracts Administrator, Auckland, New Zealand
Since receiving guidance from Fi, I have a 60% quicker recovery (in 3 days rather than 5), I’m not so easily tired and sore after a long day, and I feel fitter to start my day.
I’m now more confident that I’ll be able to get better results with my preparation, recovery and injury-prevention, as I continue to learn more about the relevant specific parts of a healthy lifestyle that I need. Thanks Fi!”
– Sekasari Suyono – Ultra Distance Runner, Mother, Teacher, Java, Indonesia
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
– Dr Tim Wood PHD – Senior Research Scientist, Utah, USA
Fi’s self-re-evaluation process gives me insights into even more ways I can still improve – even if I think I feel great right now. The effective process Fi takes me through is a new holistic approach to help my body in the long run, rather than just fixing one issue.
I’m now listening to my body even more, I have several new exercises, plus an awareness of my posture and even some limiting beliefs I’ve had. For me, this is a valuable investment in me.
I’ve trusted Fi from the very beginning of first coming across her – even before I met her. I can see that she lives and breathes what she is saying, teaching and sharing with the world. I love that we can connect on different levels, not only body, but also mind, energy and soul. I always leave each consult with very high energy and am self-motivated to take my next steps.
I appreciate the way Fi is a strong listener, with a positive approach and how she creates a safe place for being self-honest. She goes deeper on the problem, looks at the cause from different sides, and bases her recommendations on her own experience and knowledge. She also guides you and gives you the space to choose what works best for you.
Fi – you are a real inspiration!
– Elena Krayushkina, Writer, Entrepreneur, Solo Traveller, Lombok, Indonesia
During our session, we talked about the benefits of changing my diet back to include more cooked food and the potential value this could have for my digestive tract. I noticed after my treatment that my body released tension in my stomach, colon and liver. I also appreciate the simple method Fi taught me to gently release my ileocecal valve myself’ which was quite tight and reactive.
I also received benefit mentally from our discussion and Fi’s after-care which relaxed my mind. It also helped me see the possibility of a new dietary approach and yoga routine to regain my inner, core strength.
I especially appreciate Fi’s non dogmatic approach (which I find very rare in today’s health world). And her widespread knowledge on diet and health, plus her great care-fullness. I enjoy Fi’s clear and calming focus – including during my consultation, and I find her very compassionate on all occasions.
– Thanks a lot Fi!
– Joe Wehmeier – Traveller, Bali
Over the 12 weeks of us working together, I’ve noticed a massive improvement from when I started, including experiencing an increase in my energy, plus a 50-100% improvement with all 16 of my symptoms.
I used to drink 10+ coffees a day – now I mostly drink herbal teas, plus I lost the craving to smoke.
This is a marked improvement from when I started and there’s one big thing that really stands out for me, that actually contributed to me being able to keep going, was the positive mind set I was able to maintain. This is largely due to your very gentle yet firm guidance. I’m so grateful.’
– Rozanne Hesler, Commercial and Administration Manager, UK
I think that your experience both personally and with clients with health challenges makes all the difference with your approach. And you’re such a great example of living your life to its fullest.
You’re a genuine, warm, lovely, beautiful soul and talking to you was so easy. You approach things gently and I felt you really heard me and understood, which helps me so much.
You’re an amazing woman and I’m so happy that I had a chance to meet you and experience my consults with you.
– Elisa Koskela – Area Manager, Oulu, Finland
– Tara Oglia Karch – School Teacher, Yoga Teacher, Mum, Orlando, Florida, USA
Fi’s consultation got me thinking about my life in a new way and I have made radical changes in my life since then. I think it’s just amazing how well I have slept since then. In fact, before meeting Fi I would say my sleeping was 5/10 and now has been 9/10 (with 10 being excellent).
Fi’s way seeing of seeing my whole health picture is amazing. Besides ‘fixing’ my sleeping I’ve received great tips for both my nutrition and exercise, which I’ve been actioning.
I really recommend Fi’s consultations to everyone , and you really don’t need to have any major problems with your health to benefit.
I’m inspired and found our session empowering; Fi you’re amazing.
I told our Yoga Retreat group that my LifeStyle Alignment Consult with you was the most meaningful moment in the whole week.
You are a star -Thank you!
– Satu Vesala – Kindergarten Teacher, Mother, Finland
Her enthusiasm + ability to swap from speaking to the whole group to an individual, but not allowing the individual to dominate; were inspiring on many levels.
– Caroline Westoll – Access Consciousness Bars Practitioner, Sussex, UK
Fi is very knowledgeable about solutions to a broad range of health challenges. The truly unique part is she is so positive and practices what she preaches which is amazingly inspiring. She also meets me where I am at the time and is a great listener. There is no pressure or ‘You should’; her approach is perfect!
I have been able to stay consistent with my health steps which has helped me with my gut and joint health, plus my energy levels. She also inspires me to dig in deeper and constantly improve many aspects of my life.
I recommend working with Fi for a minimum of 3 months so that you can see for yourself. One conversation will be enough to understand Fi’s passion and commitment to help you, although actually working with her will show you the real proof.
I am very blessed to have come across Fi! Her dedication, knowledge, empathy, compassion and approach to life is inspiring and life changing to clients fortunate enough to work with her.
– Kim Eagan – Wellness Coach, Cape Cod, USA
I did not know what to expect with Fi; I had limited knowledge of her as a practitioner but hold her in the highest regard as a person, business woman and coach so totally trusted that she could help me.
I was very surprised that Fi spent a great deal of time delving into my history, emotional, physical, energy levels etc and because of her approach, I felt comfortable sharing. Other practitioners I had seen seemed more focused on the symptoms where Fi seemed to be seeking a cause far beyond an actual injury.
To be honest I doubted it would make a difference as her approach was so gentle. Fi explained everything she was doing and why. I simply relaxed and allowed her to listen and guide. She explained that due to issues from many years prior, my body was reacting in a way that was not allowing me to have vibrant health and energy.
After my first session, I felt a little light headed and the pain was most definitely less. Over the next few days my energy levels seemed to improve a little. I returned for my next session shortly afterwards and Fi also gave me guidance above and beyond my expectation around life balance including supplementation, which I have found invaluable.
A few weeks on I had a few twinges of pain in my upper back and my collar bone area was a little sensitive although now I’m blessed to say I’m pain free. My energy levels are great when I stay on track with the steps I know I need to be taking (including allowing time for relaxation and quality sleep etc.) I’ve also noticed that overall, my life balance has improved.
I am so grateful to Fi for her gentle care, guidance and wisdom.
– Carolyn Edwards – Entrepreneur, Traveller, Mum and Nana,
Whangarei, New Zealand
To me, a great coach knows how to ask the right questions – and Fi’s questions were absolutely 100% spot on and helped me self-realize my behaviour and problem-solve things I could do to change.
Fi knows how to listen – she would make sure that everything she says is 100% relevant and in line with my personal wants and needs.
Fi is probably the most experienced LifeStyle Consultant I’ve met – and I’ve met and worked with quite a few of them. She has a profound medical background, knows her stuff and walks the walk.
– Christine Schickinger – Neurographik Practitioner + Trainer, Munich, Germany
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
Fiona’s credentials, background and personal journey of creating health and business success in her own life, make her an ideal health and business coach. In addition to her immense knowledge in the wellness industry and how to create a flourishing business, Fiona’s ability to really listen and truly understand her client’s challenges enables her to really get underneath what is standing in the way of their success.
She blends practical steps and planning with heart-felt coaching and encouragement. You have a business coach that knows what she is talking about, can give the exact steps needed to get you where you want to go, will hold you accountable, can intuitively help you see things you may be believing or doing that are sabotaging your success and the whole time she will cheerlead and encourage you to achieve more than you ever thought possible.
– Carmen Marshall – Lifestyle & Business Expert, Miami, USA
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’s passion for health is evident in the way she deals with people and assists not only on a health level, but a holistic level incorporating body mind and soul.
– Lois Wolkers – Parent – South Africa
What struck me when I first met Fi was her deep knowledge base and passion for this field. Her level of dedication to helping people make a positive impact on their health is second to none. From the very outset Fi caters to you and your needs, creating a caring and non-judgmental environment. She takes into account your current state and your ultimate goal, then gently guides you towards that end goal. And she does it in such a way that is neither condescending nor daunting.
Rather, it’s inspiring. In the very first week of my health plan I noticed an improvement in my energy levels, and from there on in it’s been great. Fi has opened my eyes to looking consciously at both my food and my lifestyle in general. She has helped me make smarter choices for my body.
Now I literally crave healthier foods and my energy levels are rocking! Truly, if you want a better way of life, with a darn site more energy, at the very least I’d recommend you book an initial consultation with Fi.
– Jane Wrigglesworth – publisher, editor, writer, Auckland
Fi has an extensive knowledge of the human body from her profession as an Osteopath and her years of diligent study into wellness. Her general knowledge of healthy living and health products are extensive, as are the collection of success stories she has of people she has helped.
Fi’s background as an Osteopath qualifies her to answer health related questions. She “walks the walk” in health so I listen to her advice but can also watch her in action. She lives in true integrity with what she teaches.
If you want a ‘no-nonsense’, personally-tailored health plan to reach your specific health goals that works – Fi is the woman to speak to. She is upfront and to the point. She has a wealth of knowledge and a proven track record. Her holistic approach to wellness covers all dimensions of life.
Fi is a leader in the wellness industry because she lives what she teaches. Her theories and understandings are backed by personal experience. She is trustworthy, honest and has the best interest of others at heart. She does not let you get away with the easy out when she knows this is not what is best for you. She stands strong in her convictions and leads by example.
– Hilary Johnson – mortgage broker and business owner, Auckland
I have always appreciated Fi’s high level of integrity, knowledge and trust in the area of health. She is one of the few people who I feel completely confident to share any personal information regarding my own or my family’s health and will always get a well thought out, knowledgeable and caring response.
Fi’s ability to help others in the area of health is well grounded in her huge depth of knowledge, not only from her osteopathic background but her ongoing research, personal development and her openness to new information in all realms of life.
Fi’s openness and approachability are some of her best strengths when it comes to helping others and enabling them to benefit from her huge knowledge of physical improvement.
I would never hesitate to recommend her to anyone who was seeking the right person to work with them to help with their health.
– Clare Lindsay – parent, philanthropist , New Zealand
I’ve known Fiona since 1996, and I have a high level of respect for her as a person of high integrity and honesty. Her depth of knowledge in matters of health has always been incredibly helpful for me personally and it has been a great asset to be able to call on her for relevant, up to date and positive health assistance.
Fi’s direct, genuine approach to health has meant I am able to rely on her as a mentor and health advisor to give me honest and well thought out feedback and I never have to second guess if she is the one I should ask.
–Mo Ryan – parent, entrepreneur and business owner, Auckland
Working with Fi has been an absolute pleasure.
As a Health Ambassador for INNATURE, Fi has helped us provide valuable content for customers and followers – including those looking for support and good health advice during the challenging time of the pandemic in 2020. Fi offered ways to combat the stress, lack of good sleep and staying healthy by providing very practical, simple methods that anyone can follow and benefit from.
Her simple and practical advice and expertise is backed by qualified personal experience and many years as a qualified health consultant. She offers an integrated perspective, taking into account many lifestyle and health factors and drawing on the experience of working with many people who she has already helped to deal with these issues.
Fi’s value also comes from the depth of her own experience with health and her ability to positively transform her situation.
This positivity comes through in her palpable wish to benefit and help others enjoy more healthy and positive lives.
Fi offers an open, friendly and genuine approach that anyone will benefit from.
Thanks Fi =)
–Sukhita Derova- Owner Innature, Auckland, New Zealand
We decided to go ahead with the Pantry and Store Alignment sessions with Fi so that we could get clear, identify and most-importantly understand, the best healthy-foods options for us and our family. These include the most appropriate vegetables and fruits, dairy, poultry and meat products, sauces, oils, crackers, cereals, snacks, breads and drinks for our specific needs.
As well as covering the specific options for each of the food categories we’d identified as being the most important for us, we also learned about some basic rules of thumb based on our personal needs, like keeping the number of product-ingredients to a minimum.
Plus ensuring the ingredients are ones we can pronounce (and not numbers!) Also an awareness of the ‘Dirty Dozen’ and being aware of the sugar and additive-content, as well as glycaemic index (or GI) of the foods. We learned about some saturated fats being good, and that ‘low fat’ isn’t necessarily a healthier option.
We feel clearer and more confident to source food options that are better suited for our family’s health needs; including ways to look after our heart and blood sugar health.
We know Fi is the best person for us to work with in these areas, especially given her broad background as a Primary Healthcare Practitioner for the last 27+ years. Plus the way she takes us through the information in a relevant, down to earth way makes all the difference. We love the way the sessions are conversational and fun!
If you’re wanting to make progress with your health goals especially in relation to a clearer understanding of practical nutrition, without the ‘rocket science’, it’s worth working with Fi.
–Raewyn Heays (Teacher) And Darrin Bull (Consultant Strategist), Auckland, New Zealand
If you’ve never received an Alignment Consult with Fi, you are in for a treat. Fi is a very caring and attentive practitioner and I felt safe and supported as I told her my story.
During our sessions, Fi explained every aspect clearly, including letting me know what was going on within my body. This gave me the choice to connect deeper within and to consciously support my deep healing on several levels.
–Amber Dawn – Entrepreneur, Ubud, Bali
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
The main benefits I’ve noticed from Fi’s guidance are learning to value consistency and the impact of micronutrition. It’s easy to start and stop healthy efforts, and to think that doing something like taking any daily vitamin here and there will do the trick, yet Fi has helped me realize how much of a difference keeping up with my Healthy LifeStyle routines makes in how I feel. And I appreciate that we designed my own, daily Healthy LifeStyle habits together – based on my specific needs!
I believe Fi is uniquely qualified to help me reach my goals because of her extensive background and education in many areas of expertise, including osteopathy, research, public speaking, and LifeStyle Aligning.
Yet it’s more than that: I believe that Fi is qualified because I trust Fi. Working with her over the past few years has been a blessing because Fi genuinely cares, and she inspires me with how she views the world and the possibility in it.
The main benefits I’ve had since working with Fi, aside from just feeling encouraged to believe that it’s a good thing to prioritize my own health and self-care, is that I’m fuelling and caring for my body better for my running and strength training. I’m now properly hydrating myself every day, and am actually I’m getting sick less. Other benefits include the way that Fi adapts to issues I experience with my health, always recommends a thoughtful approach I wouldn’t have thought of myself, and I absolutely know she’s committed to helping me achieve my long-term health goals.
If you’re looking for someone who will take the time to develop a holistic and personalized plan for your goals, whether it’s for weight management, energy, overall wellness, better sleep, or even stress reduction, I am confident that Fi will surprise you and that you won’t regret it.
The bottom line is that Fi has helped me noticeably improve how I feel in a way that’s very manageable, and it’s because of her attentive, individualized care, extensive experience and coaching.
–Erin Giberson, Writer, New Jersey, USA
I’ve always been health-aware and taken steps to help myself although I knew I could do more – and when I met Fiona I realised it was time to go further.
I had been taking many supplements including bio-identical hormones, and wasn’t sure what to do next. Fiona took a full Alignment assessment – she guided me thoroughly, taking into account my lifestyle, my stress levels, and various aspects of how I was feeling physically, mentally and spiritually.
We overhauled my micronutritionals, and many aspects of my lifestyle. I am three months into my new regime and feeling so much better. I am so happy that my skin is finally clearing up, my anxiety levels have dropped completely, I sleep the whole night (not even needing to pop to the bathroom), my sinuses are clearing and the inflammation and dark circles around my eyes are continuing to clear, my weight is stable, I am no longer getting hot flushes, or feeling extremely tired and helpless.
Fiona checks in on me regularly and is always there for me when I need it most. I feel the steps I am taking now with her help are really working for my body.
I would recommend Fiona with her unique experience as The LifeStyle Aligner. She’s not only guided me to be able to help myself – she’s also given me the knowledge of what my next steps need to be; so I feel empowered.
Quite frankly I don’t know what I would’ve done without her help. I’m so thankful to Fiona for giving me back my health and vitality.
–Carol Smith, Author, Artist, Dubai
Fi is a brilliant Aligner and knows the human body really well. She’s very gentle and knows exactly what she is doing. She has a way to bring you back to balance physically, also emotionally too, so it’s very holistic.
I would absolutely recommend to anyone to see Fi. I felt I am in good hands and all of my questions and health problems were addressed with such understanding and care. She truly is worth consulting even if nothing is ‘wrong’ in your body; as prevention. Her approach is from a foundation of maintaining optimal health, not just fixing things that have already gone wrong.
She is a delightful and joyous being and full of love and a genuine willingness to help people. She is a gem.
–Anu Karoliina – Yoga Teacher, Bali, Finland
My breathing’s so much better! When I began my health journey with Fi, I was breathless after hovering just 2 steps of the staircase, and now I can do all the way to the top of the stairs. Just 3 months ago I would have needed to stop to catch my breath walking up hills. Now I can walk up a hill near my house and some days I walk it 3 times!
My energy’s also definitely increased. In fact, I recently walked over the cliff tops of two of the Seven Sisters at Birling Gap near Eastbourne with a friend. My knees are even feeling much better, and I managed the inclines, plus going down and back up the many steps to the beach there – twice, with no problem!
My jeans fit me better since adjusting what I’m eating. And my chest is feeling so much lighter when I breathe.
I’m an artist and I can sense my creative-self is coming out again. In fact I crafted my first piece in several years recently – it took me 4 hrs.
I have more confidence, including with the role I took on in the community a few months ago, which includes facilitating a growing women’s group.
Overall, I feel like I’m getting my life back.
–Kate Blanchard – Artist and Busy Mum, Sussex, UK
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
From the moment I first met Fiona Jamieson-Folland, I realized I was in the presence of a remarkable woman. Fi exudes genuine confidence and warmth and has the unique ability to make everyone feel she’s one of their most trusted friends. Over the years I’ve met thousands of leaders in our industry and dozens of health care professionals.
Fi is both…a passionate, caring leader and a qualified, experienced practitioner. I’m certain her highest purpose is to inspire and enable those she works with to reach their own state of healthy wholeness and meet their own lofty goals.
Life is infinitely better when we surround ourselves with individuals who inspire and lift us. Fiona does just that for me and I believe she’ll do the same for you.
–Collette Larsen – Business Owner, California, USA
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
Are you looking for help? Are you seeking guidance? Are you hoping for someone you can confide in and trust? Your answer is Fi Jamieson-Folland. In the world’s eyes, she’s qualified due to Studies at the European School of Osteopathy and years of experience.
Far more importantly, I trust Fi because of who she is! Her work ethic, drive, determination, passion and integrity are unmatched. Her commitment to health and love for her clients makes her unique.
I’ve seen her electrify capacity crowds with public speaking skills. I’ve also seen her teach 1-on-1’s in more intimate settings. No matter what the setting, you always get the same Fi. She brings her best ALL THE TIME.
If you’ve been presented with health challenges, let me urge you to seek out Fi. She’s educated and equipped to help you. She’s compassionate and patient. She will fight your struggles with you to bring about solutions! If you’re looking for a partner to help you fight your health challenges, you want Fi to tag team with you. You’ll have no regrets.
–Jordan Kemper – Business Owner, Florida, USA
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.
–Gitte Due Pedersen – Osteopath, Chipping Norton, UK
After years of consulting in the wellness industry, I am happy to recommend Fi Jamieson-Folland. She is a 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
I have not been sick since meeting Fi, which i think is awesome. I was sick twice in the lead-up to the Ultra 84km charity run in Bali in March this year. And this was coming back from the tropics of Bali to the New Zealand winter, so that’s awesome.
I feel great and I’m energised. I don’t have the usual ups and downs in my body anymore. And my mindset!…because everything’s clear including how my body’s working – I feel like I can just focus on what I really want to focus on. Including some ultra distance runs I have coming up soon. I get to focus on my work, my sport – and doing it in a way that doesn’t overtake my life.
Fi’s special because she personalises what she does so that she can best help me achieve my goals. She’s not attempting to fit me into a box, where I have to look a specific way, or be a particular weight or eat one diet.
Give it go for yourself working with Fi. You may well feel healthier, have more energy, get yourself Aligned – Fi Aligns you to the LifeStyle you want to be living. Just go for it; it’s only good that can happen out of it!
–Kyron Gosse – Investor, Educator, Property Entrepreneur, Auckland, NZ
