Kerikeri, Takapuna or Online Throughout New Zealand

Natural Therapies Ease Life For You And Your Child

Good health, contentment, and well-being allow you or your child to engage more fully with the world.

At Starfish Naturopathy, I use natural health therapies to help children, adults, and families experiencing the symptoms of ADHD, anxiety and other neurodivergent challenges to exist in the world with more ease.

Making A Difference, One Family At A Time


Get to the root of the challenges, feel heard, and understood with a practitioner on your side.


With a clear plan and support to implement it, you’ll not have to go it alone when it comes to your family’s health.


Rediscover life beyond symptoms and reconnect with your child, supported by a practitioner who can assist you on this journey.

Shift Your Focus From Overcoming Symptoms To Prioritising Life

When you or your child is experiencing ADHD, anxiety or other neurodivergent symptoms, finding help can be a never-ending battle of trial and error. 

All your spare time is spent finding out what to do and who can help. Instead of enjoying your family and friends and experiencing the world.  

I know because that was my family's journey for many years. 

My journey led me to retrain in naturopathy and focus on anxiety, ADHD, autism and other neurological challenges that affect our children. 

As a gentle, natural healing system that treats the root cause of symptoms rather than just addressing the symptoms, naturopathy is the perfect way to support neurological symptoms such as anxiety, lack of focus, stimming, sensory disorders and emotional frustrations. 

Allowing you or your child to experience life more easily, feel hopeful and thrive.

What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy (also known as naturopathic medicine) is a holistic approach to your health, always aiming to treat the root causes using dietary and lifestyle changes, herbal medicine, and supplements if required.


Naturopathic practitioners believe in the healing power of nature and the body's ability to heal itself when given the right conditions and support.


Instead of focusing solely on symptom relief, naturopaths aim to identify the underlying causes of illness and address them to promote long-term health.


First, do no harm. Naturopaths use gentle, non-invasive therapies with minimal side effects to reduce the risk of harm.


Naturopaths treat the whole person. We consider a person's physical, mental, emotional, and social health to provide comprehensive care.


By promoting and supporting a healthy lifestyle and addressing risk factors, naturopaths seek to prevent illness before it occurs.


Naturopathic practitioners aim to educate and empower their clients with the information they need to take responsibility for their own health.

Your Appointment At Starfish Naturopathy

I provide a judgment-free zone and meet you where you’re at.

At your first appointment, we’ll get to know each other. We’ll talk about what you’ve been experiencing and the changes you’re looking for. I’ll take a detailed history that includes

  • Full medical history.

  • Developmental history.

  • Physical and emotional health and well-being.

  • Prescribed medication.

  • Supplement use.

  • Dietary intake.

This information will give me an idea of what’s going on and whether we need to do any further testing to get to the root of what you or your child is experiencing. And create your tailored treatment plan.

I know making changes can often be challenging. Especially when dealing with food taste and texture preferences, inflexibility and habits. 

That’s why we work closely together over a series of appointments to tailor and adjust your plan.

As part of your treatment plan, I may recommend we use any or all of the following cornerstones of naturopathic care;

Medical herbalism

With a history of use going back thousands of years, modern medical herbalists combine traditional knowledge and evidence-based practice to assist with acute and chronic health conditions.


After a detailed conversation about your experiences, I may recommend targeted, high-quality nutritional supplements to augment the diet and assist the body in functioning better.


When indicated, functional testing such as hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA), organic acid testing (OAT) or microbiome mapping (GI-Map) may help to identify imbalances and better inform the treatment that I recommend.


After analysing your current dietary intake, I provide personalised nutrition advice, including meal plans and implementation of specialised diets, if required.

Focus On Life Again

By getting to the root of the problem, you’ll be able to look forward to focusing on life, not symptoms.

How Many Appointments Will I Need, And Other Questions You Might Have

How many appointments will I need?

At your first appointment, I focus on clearly understanding where you are at with your health and what might be underlying your symptoms. You will usually receive a health plan at this appointment, or if your case is particularly complex – including if multiple prescribed medications are involved - we will book a second, complimentary appointment for you to receive your health plan.

Will my child need to be present at appointments?

It’s wonderful and best of all, if I am able to meet your child in person, but if this is not possible due to distance or if a clinic visit will cause your child distress, we can do the consultation via Zoom or without your child present at all.

Can I use insurance?

Some policies do include cover for consultations with registered naturopaths, and I am registered as a professional member of NMHNZ. Please check with your insurer whether your own policy covers naturopathic consultations.

Do you have online or in-person appointments?

I offer online Zoom appointments and in-person consultations in my Kerikeri clinic, plus a weekly in-person clinic in Takapuna, Auckland.

How does naturopathy work?

Naturopathy provides a holistic model of health care, taking into account the person as a whole, their mind, spirit and emotions, and the body as its whole rather than just as its component parts. In practice, this will mean taking a very detailed medical and personal history, so I can best understand how to help you improve your health using appropriate dietary and lifestyle changes, herbal remedies, and supplementation if required.

Registered naturopaths in New Zealand need to have met educational criteria – currently a three-year degree – and undertake continuing professional development. We work alongside allied and other medical practitioners, including GPs. Naturopathy is a complementary, rather than alternative, medicine.

How soon can I expect to see results?

This will depend on your presenting health, whether your condition is acute, chronic, or complex, as well as on your own preference and capacity to implement the dietary and lifestyle changes required for better health.

Whilst we can often make positive changes quite quickly, sometimes the healing process requires deeper work in the background before a real change is felt.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you need to change or cancel your appointment time, let me know 24 hours in advance, or a 50% cancellation fee will apply.
