Cutting-edge Solutions for Life-Changing Outcomes

The Medicine of the Future is Here Now

'All Healing Comes From Within'

When I grew up, the only thing I knew about getting well was to go to a doctor, which would mean either taking a medication or having a surgery in order to 'get rid of symptoms'. This was the ONLY thing my family (and therefore me) knew about healing.

How little did we know!

It was only through not getting the results I needed that I started to look in other directions. 

The first 'alternative therapist' I ever went to was an osteopath, after straining my back so badly I couldn't even get dressed anymore, and being told by my doctor there was nothing they could do to help. This was the beginning of my search and research into natural therapies back in the 1980s.

Since then I have tried and tested over 250 different natural healing modalities, and trained to professional level in over 20 methodologies, many in great depth.

Everything I offer I have tried and tested myself. If I haven't personally done it and got results, I will not offer it to clients. 

I never set out to be a health practitioner - I was merely trying to heal myself. But as I tried and tested hundreds of modalities, and visited hundreds of practitioners, a picture started to form of what healing is really about: I began to see how physical symptoms are almost always the end-result of prior causes, and that unless we discover and resolve these underlying causes, it will be nigh impossible to get properly well. This is what eventually led me to create my signature KHD (Kiwi Health Detective) 'Root Cause Analysis' Protocol, which identifies the absolute root causes of illnesses in record time. 

Since the early 90's I have tried, tested and trained in many different types of natural healing modalities, including energy healing, mind-body healing, psycho-neuro-immunology healing, lifestyle medicine, Qigong and more. After I healed myself from chronic fatigue, depression and other debilitating symptoms, people started to ask me to help them. 

Further down this page you will find a list of my professional trainings.

But first let me try and describe what I do...

What do I do? What do I call myself?

'Call me the 'Agatha Christie of Healing'!

Usually when we choose a therapist, we want to know what they 'do' and what their training is. Fair enough. 

It's quite easy to have an idea of what an acupuncturist or osteopath or naturopath do, because most people are fairly familiar with these modalities.

However, having taken 'the road less travelled' in my 40 years of exploring natural health, when people ask me 'what do you do?' and 'what is your training?' it's tricky to answer in one sentence, and this is why:

With 25 years of solid professional training behind me in multiple modalities, what I do is so revolutionary compared to what we are normally familiar with in terms of the 'conventional' system of healthcare, (which tends to focus on treating symptoms rather than cause), that it can be challenging to grasp these new concepts. 

Since 1997 I have trained in New Zealand, USA and UK in a number of cutting-edge health modalities, all of which focus on identifying the absolute emotional-stress root cause of the problem, and then applying techniques to bring the body back to health as naturally as possible.

If I was to sum up the main roles or titles my work encompassess it could look like this:

Health Coach / Lifestyle Medicine Practitioner / Lifestyle Prescriptions Practitioner / Green Prescriptions Practitioner / Health Educator / Health Trainer / Counsellor / Psychotherapist / Psychologist / Wake-up Call Coach / Self Awareness Coach / Life Coach / Psycho-Neuro-Immunology Practitioner / Energy Psychologist / Energy Healer / De-Stress Expert / Emotional Intelligence Trainer / Chronic Illness Recovery Coach / Chronic Fatigue and Pain Expert / Professional Speaker


Overall though, I have come to call myself THE KIWI HEALTH DETECTIVE because in a nutshell, just like Agatha Christie or  Sherlock Holmes, you the idea: I get to the cause of health problems and (help you) solve them!

Professional Training

We heal people, not illness. We heal a whole person's life, not a health condition

As you can see from the list below, I have explored many different avenues of healing, all of which are focused on getting to the root cause of symptoms, and helping people engage their natural self-healing abilities. This is why one of my mottos is 'selfcare - a revolution in healthcare'.

I love to help clients re-empower themselves to take back control of their health and wellbeing, and trust that their body knows how to self-heal!

When we work together, as a result of many years of clinical practice, combined with an amazing array of cutting-edge methodologies, I intuitively know which technique or modality is best suited to YOUR unique situation. 

This is one of THE most important things to understand about healing: it is not just the technique which matters - it is the therapist's ability to use that technique, and the skill of the therapist to understand the laws of health and healing which matters. Equally important is your willingness to embrace new perspectives, and your readiness to do things differently, which play a significant role in your healing. 

Founder - KHD Root Cause Analysis

KHD root cause analysis is a methodology which focuses on identifying the root stress-trauma-emotional-environmental causes of mental health problems and physical illness. 

TKM lifestyle medicine life transformation is built on the principles of the '9 pillars of health mastery' which encompass 9 specific life areas which must be managed in order to establish and maintain authentic health and wellbeing. 

These life areas include management of: stress, emotions, mind, self-care, people management, lifestyle habits, energy, trauma resolution and spirit.

(Actually, since develping the 9 pillar model, it has now expanded to 10!). 


Moativational Medicine‚ĄĘ

Moativational Medicine Berkhamsted - Tring - Carmel Acupuncture

Energy psychology and psycho-neuro-immunology processes for identifying and clearing the root cause of illness and pain. This method really goes to the heart of the 'emotional intelligence of physical illness'.

‚ÄúAs a practitioner of the Moativational Medicine‚ĄĘ model, Kim continues to demonstrate a commendable commitment to learning, sharing and applying its philosophy, art, science and practice. This, when combined with her other disciplines and training, perhaps explains why she receives the client testimonials that she does.‚Ä̬† Richard D Moat, Creator of Moativational Medicine‚ĄĘ


Lifestyle Prescriptions¬ģ¬†

Lifestyle Prescriptions University | The World's Only Lifestyle ...

Lifestyle Prescriptions¬ģ is a cutting-edge technique for identifying the root cause of symptoms through accurately pinpointing the exact stress-emotional-conflict theme which correlates with a specific symptom or diagnosis.¬†

This means that if you have been diagnosed by a doctor with 'xyz' symptom or diagnosis, rather than having no idea as to why you have this symptom or illness, you can accurately discern the exact emotional root cause stressor which caused the body to create those symptoms. Once you know the cause, the solution becomes apparent. This is Louise Hay on steroids!

Advanced Clearing Energetics


A simple technique which clears the stress and trauma which causes 'dis-ease'. ACE gets to the core of stressful life events effortlessly, allowing you to easily learn from the event, transform it, and remove the ‚Äústuck energy‚ÄĚ from your body. Once gone, your body can automatically return to its natural state of health, which is something it‚Äôs always known how to do, and you no longer need to repeat the 'same old, same old' situations.

The Emotion Code

A technique for identifying and clearing the emotional causation of physical pain, emotional trauma and symptoms of unhappiness. Developed by Dr Bradley Nelson, The Emotion Code uses kinesiology (muscle testing) to identify trapped energy or emotion in the cells which is creating pain or illness, and then clears the energy using a magnet.

AHA Energy Re-alignment

AHA (ancient healing alchemy) is a profoundly sacred ancient energy healing technique for restoring balance on all levels of the human energy field. I completed training in 1998, and only very few practitioners were privileged to have trained in this ancient healing art. Whilst I no longer offer AHA energy sessions in person, everything I learn is always incorporated into the totality of my healing work with clients.

The ultimate goal of Ren Xue is self-realization and wisdom.

I am a fully qualified Ren Xue Yuan Gong teacher and practitioner having completed the 6 year training program with Master Yuan Tze between 2012and 2018, and prior to this the 8 level training program with Master Yuan Tze in Zhineng Qigong.

First Light Flower Essences / Bach Flowers / Perelandra


Between 1997 and 2007 I trained extensively in First Light Flower Essences, along with other flower essence modalities including Perelandra and Bach Flowers. Studying flower and plant essence healing teaches us how to tap into the intelligence of nature to affect positive changes in our energy structure. 


Chi Nei Tsang - Taoist Healing Energetics


Between 2000 and 2008 I trained with Gilles Marin and the Taoist School of Healing Energetics in Berkely, California. The focus was on Chi Nei Tsang, internal organs Chi massage, plus healing meditations to clear the body and organs of built-up emotional and physical toxins.


Universal Healing Tao Qigong and Meditation

The Universal Healing Tao is an ancient system of self-healing techniques passed down for centuries. It compasses a number of meditation techniques and moving postures designed to clear the body of emotional and physical toxins. I spent 2000-2009 focusing in training in the UHT methodologies, travelling frequently to the USA and Thailand. In particular I trained in the Inner Smile meditation, 6 Healing Sounds meditation, Fusion of the Five Elements meditation, Iron Shirt Qigong, Chi Nei Tsang and other techniques.


Massage and Bodywork

Between 2000 and 2012 I did many massage trainings, including a certificate in relaxation massage (Wellpark College, Auckland), Holistic Pulsing, Reflexology, Lomi Lomi and Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage (see above). Between 2006 and 2012 I offered many body work sessions in clinic. Whilst I no longer offer bodywork to clients, my training and clinical experience in these modalities has given me a profound understanding of the inner workings of the body, including how emotional tensions play out in the physical body to cause physical symptoms.  


Zero Balancing

Developed by Fritz Smith, MD in the early 1970s, Zero Balancing is a powerful body-mind therapy that teaches skilled touch to bring balance to body structure and energy. The practitioner uses finger pressure and gentle traction on areas of tension in the bones, joints and soft tissue to create fulcrums, or points of balance, around which the body can relax and reorganize. Whilst I no longer offer bodywork sessions, everything I learned through this modality is brought forward into my practice. 


NES Health

NES Health uses a bioenergetic scan for wellness assessments and bio energetic liquid remedies for supporting a return to better health. Due to the cost of stocking remedies, and preferring for this modality to see clients in person, I no longer offer NES Health sessions, but the training adds to my overall acumen and understanding of the human body.   


Feng Shui

Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of the placement of objects in space for the wellbeing of people living in those spaces. I have offered 'intuitive Feng Shui' sessions in the past, and still do if people request it. 


Mickel Therapy

Between 2006 and 2018 I was a senior Mickel Therapist and Mickel Therapy Practitioner Trainer, working with clients and training new therapists. When I started training in Mickel Therapy, I realized I already knew most of the techniques through my own personal journey of self-healing, because Mickel Therapy is all about making healthier choices and being in integrity with self, all of which I had already discovered through the 20 year journey I had already taken to heal myself from several chronic illnesses. Whilst I no longer offer Mickel Therapy, everything I learned from helping hundreds of clients self-heal from chronic, debilitating symptoms during this time has been brought forward into my current practice.

Therapies experienced as a client

All Healing Comes from Within

Sometimes people find it hard to believe me when I say I tried over 200 therapies on my exploration to wellness. This is why when people come to me and after telling me "I've tried everything" with 5 to 10 techniques, I usually say "no you really haven't"!

I have personally authentically tried, tested and used over 200 therapies, so I really know what is out there, what works, what is right for what situation, and what sometimes doesn't work.

In particular, after your Kiwi Health Detective Root Cause Analysis Session, I know what therapies to recommend to you specifically, and this is most important, because everyone is unique, and you need to find the right techniques for your specific situation.
