Naturopathy

As a degree qualified naturopath and medical herbalist I have a burning passion to elevate and empower your health through education and guidance on how to heal your body and mind naturally.

Naturopathy is a system of healthcare that weaves together traditional medicine with the most recent scientific evidence. Naturopathy is a completely individualised science; there’s never a one-size-fits-all solution - enter the catchphrase 'natural tailored care'.

Every client I take on is different – different goals, different starting points, unique requirements, and individual needs. Treatment plans are tailored to your needs and meet you with where you are on your wellness journey.

Wellbeing Encompasses Everything

As a holistic practitioner it is important for me to understand your story, and in our initial consultation we talk in-depth about all areas of your life, including past experiences and family health history. Your treatment plan is research-based to your needs and we utilise nutritional medicine, herbal medicine and lifestyle modification to achieve sustainable long-term positive change in your life.

Naturopathic medicine philosophy uses the therapeutic order - a hierarchy of therapeutic interventions:

  1. Vis medicatrix naturae - the healing power of nature

  2. Tolle causam - identify and treat the cause

  3. Primum no nocere - first do no harm

  4. In perturbato animo sicut in corpore sanitas esse non potest - treat the whole person

  5. Docere - the physician as teacher

  6. Principiis obsta: sero medicina curatur - prevention

The therapeutic order considers all aspects of an individual - physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, social and environmental - as important in the quest for optimal health and wellbeing.

Naturopathy is considered to be complementary medicine and I enjoy working alongside allopathic practitioners as I understand there is an important place for both styles of medicine in our healthcare system. Sessions and packages are designed to give you the tools, education and support you need in all areas of your life. Whatever your goals are, I am here to work with you on a personal level to help you achieve them.


Naturopathic Care

Naturopathy is the art and science of supporting the body’s natural ability to find balance, always. Homeostasis, or harmony, is the overall aim of our bodily process. Our bodies are highly individualised and therefore there is no one-size fits all. I use evidence based lifestyle, nutritional and herbal interventions which are best suited to your individualised needs and requirements. I believe the way we nourish our body and mind can truly change our lives. Some areas I may be able to help you with include:

  • Compromised immune system

  • Food sensitivities

  • Restorative sleep maintenance

  • Thyroid issues

  • Chronic pain and chronic conditions

  • Nutrition and support for preconception, pregnancy and breastfeeding

  • Grief or loss support

  • Hormonal imbalances

  • Mood disorders - stress, anxiety, depression

  • Weight loss

  • Fatigue and adrenal fatigue

  • Skin health

  • Gut health

  • Sleep maintenance

  • Preventative medicine

There may not be a ‘term’ or a specific reason for the way you are feeling, and that is ok… If you are having trouble sleeping, experience low energy, suffer from fatigue or anxiety, are feeling stressed or overwhelmed, have skin breakouts, suffer from painful periods, would like nutritional and lifestyle advice or just want an extra helping hand with your wellbeing - do not hesitate to reach out - you have landed in the right place.


I’m a big believer in treating each and every client individually. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; there’s no one answer, no one-size fits all solution. My packages are a great way to get tailored support on an ongoing basis, and they’re the best value for money option, however sometimes you just need a one-off session to set you in the right direction.

This package includes one 60-minute consult discussing health history and goals. We work together to devise an achievable plan of action. If necessary I can make suggestions for helpful nutritional and herbal medicine solutions.

You will receive a supply of appropriate and helpful take-home information to help you achieve your goals under your own steam. eg. meal guides, recipes, gluten or dairy free guidance, pantry lists and lifestyle change information. If appropriate, I may make recommendations for investigative or diagnostic testing.

One-off Consultations


Wellbeing Packages

A great way to get naturopathic support or advice for acute conditions or have a holistic general check-up. Over two sessions, we will break down your habits, lifestyle, symptoms and holistically access your wellbeing.

Reaching Out

If you have got this far, well done. Reaching out is the hardest step in this journey.

Preventative medicine is an investment for your future. I only take a limited number of consultations monthly and spaces move very quickly, so I encourage you book in advance. Consultations in person are preferred but I am super happy to support you with your journey via Zoom if you are remote or out of Auckland.

Testimonials

Seeing Nikola helped me get a handle on a lot of areas in my life. She takes a holistic approach and looks at everything you do, and how it can be improved in a really subtle but effective way. We started by making small changes and goals as each week went by. I didn’t feel like I was making drastic changes to my everyday life, but the results were drastic and fantastic! I felt so much better by the end of it, and the results have continued as Nik gave me the tools to carry on using in my everyday life. And when things get hectic, I can revert back to the tools I learned from our sessions together. Thanks again Nik!
— Georgia
It’s been quite a journey. I know my body and mind are healing, and I’m really excited to know I have the right tools now to support them with a holistic approach. You have truly helped me more than I could’ve hoped for, and for that, I am forever grateful. So thank you!
— Kristyn
So much has changed in my headspace over these six weeks, it makes me emotional just thinking about it. My energy levels, moods, skin brightness and inflammation are getting better every day, and I’m trying hard to focus on that each time I meditate. What a journey!
— Kristyn
When I first came to see Nik I felt as though I was at the end of my rope. My days were filled with anxiety about anything, I couldn’t sleep, I was addicted to bad food, I was constantly fatigued, I was piling on the kilos. I felt out of control of my life and was always putting myself last. Nik held my hand through dealing with feelings, some lifestyle changes, a detox, putting routines in place so I could show myself some self-love. The weekly goals we would write together were key in helping me stay on track and ensuring these new routines became a habit. She explained everything every step of the way and always made sure I felt safe and that I understood what was happening to my body.
— Emma
