Client reviews for Christchurch’s leading naturopath

“Stephen presented as professional and knowledgeable in the field of naturopathy and also fitness. He has a high level of skill and presents this is in a personable and professional manner. He is a person of high integrity and is passionate and committed to his areas of practice and expertise and helped me to achieve excellent outcomes. I have no hesitation in recommending him to any person in any of his areas of expertise. He has a strong work ethic and works hard to achieve the best outcomes and is positive and encouraging to all he interacts with”.

“Hi Stephen, just a quick note to say thanks very much for the effort you put into finding the right herbal mixture to suit me specifically. I must say I came along with some reservations but those were very quickly blown out the water. Thank you for being tentative and for always sending me away with plenty of information to consider. I am still reaping the benefits of the herbal mixture you suggested for me”.

“I was devastated when Stephen announced that he was leaving New Zealand. He was one of the best health professionals ever! I always enjoyed our discussions and he helped me in so many ways that others could not”.

“I have been seeking many years to find help with my condition but have been disappointed to find someone who was either willing to really help me, or actually had the knowledge to help rather than simply dismissing me by saying “you just have to live with it”. Then I met Stephen. Stephen proved to be strongly professional and helped me in more ways than I was expecting. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with me and others and giving people hope that there are other options!”

“Stephen is a great coach with lots of enthusiasm, positive energy and pushes/challenges his clients in the right way. After a long break from training, he gave me a lot of inspiration to start training again and encouraged me to try new forms of training outside my comfort zone. As a coach he has a high level of professional skill and always well prepared. You can see that he enjoys working with his clients and he does it with passion! As a former Olympic athlete I have met a lot of trainers and coaches. The joy Stephen sends out is the most important thing for me”

“I first met Stephen Roigard at an incredible Zumba fitness class, where I got to know that Stephen is a multi-discipline health and wellness coach with several focused areas, including a degree in naturopathy and nutrition. I subsequently met Stephen for a naturopathic session with the purpose of reversing a viral gastroenteritis which was giving me recurrent pain over the last two years.
At our first appointment, Stephen had prepared a detailed plan in order to accomplish a full healing process for my case. His engagement and support provided me the tools to follow my tasks easily. Currently, after a month of naturopathic consultations with Stephen, I have no pain left, and my tolerance towards different types of food is building up fast.
I find Stephen highly professional and dedicated to each individual case. He has an integrated and strong knowledge in different health disciplines which makes a unique combination. Stephen’s positive energy and his natural ability to motivate people, translates in success. This is reflected on his solid role as a personal trainer and his overbooked fitness classes.
I highly recommend Stephen to anyone who wants to accomplish specific or general fitness and wellness goals”.

“I have known Stephen Roigard since he began his studies at Wellpark College of Natural Therapies, where I was head of faculty for naturopathy and nutrition. Stephen was a very effective student practitioner, was highly committed and performed well. He was strong academically, and was always inquisitive in his approach to learning. He engaged well with his peers, and was thought of highly by those who taught him. The standard of his work was excellent.
As a graduate and practitioner he has been very effective in his field and continues to learn and move forward in his career as a naturopath. He has great expertise in the area of exercise and nutrition and can make a big difference in the health of his clients through his comprehensive approach.
He is extremely personable and always focused in what he does. I would have no hesitation in recommending him as a practitioner”.
