Kimba Lawrence

Bachelor of Social Work, PSYCH-K Practitioner

Kimba has a background in social sciences and business, and is deeply committed to helping people improve their lives. She has worked in natural health for over 10 years, jointly owning a very effective weight-loss clinic.

Kimba is a certified PSYCH-K (mind-set change) practitioner, helping people to change their limiting subconscious beliefs without re-trauma, and often quickly and easily. She studies the work of Dr Bruce Lipton and others leading the field of energy psychology and brain neuroscience. She has applied this modality to the area of weight loss, food issues and helping people have the energy for change and sustaining change long term which is what really matters. Beliefs drive or hinder the change process.

Kimba has helped 100’s of people to restore their health and lose weight over the last 10 years. She has witnessed many clients reverse their diabetes after following traditional advice and really trying to get healthier. 

Kimba has a passion to help people live fuller, happy lives and to have the good health they deserve.


Dr Matt Shelton

MB ChB, Dip Obs, Dip Anaes, FRNZCGP, FACNEM

Matt brings over three decades of medical practice, originally in the United Kingdom and then 25 years in his adopted home,  New Zealand. Early years in anaesthetics and critical care medicine created a life-long love of biochemistry and an appreciation for the cast-in-stone design of the human body, however carelessly we may wish to drive it! Later studies in anthropology and a fellowship in clinical nutrition confirmed for him that our ability to thrive requires awareness of a few obligatory and non-negotiable behaviours, in order to be physically and emotionally healthy. He has been heavily involved in training other doctors in the area of nutrition and environmental medicine for over a decade.

Matt has years of valuable experience as a full-time general practitioner, working increasingly with diabetes, obesity and other metabolic diseases. He is fully convinced by the weight of evidence underlying our programme, and its results.

He is available at The Diabetes Clinic via the medical consultation service for advice and support to more complex clients, for second opinions or to take an integrative look at health issues with a view to identifying underlying causes and resolving them – with drug-free solutions wherever possible. The Diabetes Clinic does not offer general practice/family medicine services as we are an online service for clients from around the world, and from widely differing medical jurisdictions. Always seek local medical advice.
