‘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 was recovering from Breast Cancer surgery and treatment, as well as several other health and lifestyle challenges, when I had the opportunity of consulting with Fiona Jamieson-Folland.
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, focussed and even my sleep is so much better. I really enjoy the valuable wellbeing 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
‘‘Fi’s workshop ‘Experience All-day Energy – Naturally’ was an inspirational talk from a therapist’s point of view as I loved the interactive element. Fi’s very engaging and I can see why she touches so many people’s lives.
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
“I was really struggling with pain in my shoulder, arm and collar bone, having visited various practitioners, including physiotherapists, osteopaths, thai massage therapists and an ozone therapist over a period of 3 -4 months with limited relief. I felt my pain was originally from a strain in my upper back 12 months prior.
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, traveler, Mum and Nana, Whangarei, New Zealand
“I was having back discomfort and tension, which has gone from a level of 7/10 to now just 4/10. I had constant neck tension (it was at 9/10, and now generally only 5/10), plus a tight chest and mid back discomfort (which were at 9/10 – now just 5/10). I had anxiety for weeks at a time, which has gone from the maximum to just 1/10.
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
“I began my 6 month LifeStyle Alignment Program with Fi to be lighter and energetic, have more energy and excitement for life, be smarter and calmer, and reduce my prescribed medication.
After just 3 months I’ve noticed many changes, including the following
– 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
“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
“Before connecting with Fi, I was finding it took me 5 days to recover from a big training or event, plus I was tired at the start of my day and was experiencing some injuries.
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
“I have known Fiona Jamieson-Folland since 2003. With a background as a health professional, Fi has extensive knowledge in the areas of wellness and nutrition and is highly regarded as a ‘go to’ person for support and advice.
It is such a joy to work with Fi, her genuine care for others and her warm heart always shine through. Fi listens to individuals needs and offers solutions. She is passionate about changing lives and Fi continues to help many people to achieve their health goals, including being a sought after health presenter across the globe.”
Pamela Ferry – business manager, Sydney, Australia
“Fi keeps me on track concerning my goal of improving my health, and supports me with general health advice including my micro and macronutrition. Her check-ins are super valuable to me, plus I know Fi is just one message away if I have any questions.
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
“My LifeStyle Consult with Fi was fantastic.
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, Pack + Trainer - Neurographik, Munich, Germany
“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 very attentive and thorough and I felt totally held, heard and understood. Her presence is very caring and warm and combines well with her knowledge and preciseness. I’d had problems in my hip area from over-using it in my job as a yoga teacher. Her approach was so gentle, subtle and yet so effective. She also gave me good advice for take caring of my body in the future, including some home assignments and different stretches. I felt I was totally taken care of in a very professional, yet warm-hearted, delightful way.
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
“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
“Things are going well – my blood sugars are much lower and so the amount of insulin I need, including my night dose, have reduced.
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
‘Fiona Jamieson-Folland is a leader by example. She is an outstanding professional consultant/coach/mentor in the Wellness Industry, with expertise in nutritional science, fitness and exercise physiology, and other disciplines related to integrative medicine and longevity. I have been a colleague for nearly two decades and can recommend her and her services without reservation for anyone seeking peak physical and mental performance. 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, Auckland, NZ
“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
‘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
‘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, NZ

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 Kitto – Mortgage broker and 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.’Gitte Due Pedersen – Osteopath, Chipping Norton, UK
‘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
“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, France
‘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, Melbourne, Australia
‘I have known Fi for a year now, as a mentor, and consultant on personal health issues. 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.

Her depth of knowledge in matters of health has always been incredibly helpful for me both personally and professionally 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 and business has meant I am able to rely on her as a mentor and health advisor to give me honest and well thought out feedback in all situations and I never have to second guess if she is the one I should ask.’Mo Ryan – Parent, Qualified Homeopath, Auckland, NZ

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.

‘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
