Buffy's most recommended program to achieve the best possible results on your health journey is her 6 or 12 Week Ultimate Transformation. This intensive course of holistic healthcare combines naturopathy, nutrition, herbal medicine, therapeutic essential oils and more in order to achieve those health goals which might have felt out of your reach in the past.
However, Buffy is also able to offer a small number of one-on-one naturopathic and nutrition consultations. These are available either in person at our Auckland premises, or for those outside of Auckland and New Zealand, via Skype, FaceTime, Whatsapp, or phone.
Buffy Ellen holds a Bachelor's degree in Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine, as well as a Diploma in Nutrition. She also previously obtained a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Commerce, and has completed a three year post graduate qualification in financial and research analysis.
Initial Consultation: Buffy will review your current health concerns, health history, and personal goals for the session and your health. She will then offer individualised recommendations with specific achievable action points to help you achieve those goals. You will leave your consultation with an immediate action plan, containing specific nutritional recommendations, and practical lifestyle changes to improve your health.
Follow Up Consultations: Normally conducted fortnightly after your initial consultation for 3 months, and monthly thereafter if your progress is consistent and goals being achieved. Buffy will review your progress, offer guidance and changes needed, and answer any questions you may have. Buffy will then work with you to update and adjust your near term goals for the coming weeks, so you may continue to achieve and maintain optimal health.
Please note that follow ups booked within 2-4 weeks of each other will be able to be conducted in 45 minutes. If you have not seen Buffy for over 4 weeks, you will need to book a 1 hour consultation, in order to catch up after the extended time period.
Essential Oil Wellness Consultation: As part of her arsenal of natural remedies, Buffy often prescribes essential oils, which are a concentrated form of ancient plant-based medicine. They can provide incredible benefits for your mental and physical wellbeing, through topical, aromatic, and internal application, as well as being able to be used in a variety of ways around the home.

If you'd like a consultation with Buffy specifically focussed on essential oils, please select this option from the drop-down menu when purchasing your consultation above. Even better, the price of your consultation is redeemable against any Essential Oil Kits you may choose to purchase following the consultation.
Please note: Buffy Ellen is a qualified and registered naturopath, medical herbalist, and nutritionist, but strongly recommends you continue to see your General Practitioner or other medical specialist in conjunction with your visits with her. Buffy is more than happy to work together with your GP or specialist, and strongly believes an integrative approach to healthcare - involving both naturopathic treatment and conventional allopathic medicine - is the best way to achieve optimal health.
Some health insurance policies may cover seeing a naturopath and/or nutritionist. If you wish to make a claim for your consultation with your insurance provider, please let us know at the time of booking so we can have the necessary paperwork ready for you.
