I am a Naturopath, Nutritionist and Herbalist
Naturopathic medicine assists the body’s natural self-healing ability using natural products and therapies. The beauty of these are that are non-toxic and have little to no side-effects.
As a Naturopath I don’t believe in quick fixes but rather finding long term health solutions that promote sustained wellbeing that fits each individual and their lifestyle.
I work together with clients to provide a personalised treatment program tailored to their individual needs.
My field of expertise is hormonal imbalance, menopause and digestive complaints but I also have a thorough knowledge of and may assist with many other conditions.
These include weight loss programs, respiratory problems, depression, anxiety, low immunity, stress, weight loss, food intolerances, migraines and headaches, fertility and menstrual problems, fatigue, anxiety, insomnia and skin issues to name but a few.
These problems may not always be resolved overnight as they have usually taken a long time to get to their present state.
Depending on the presenting condition we will take small steps to slowly peel away any illness and work towards total and lasting wellness. Look forward to working with you.
Naturopathy has six founding principles:
- The healing power of nature
- First do no harm
- Find and treat the cause, not just the symptom
- Always treat the whole person, not just their disease
Our initial consultation it will usually take between 60 and 90 minutes.
A full case history will be taken where many questions regarding your individual situation including previous illnesses, family medical history, diet, stressors and lifestyle will be asked.
Your practitioner may perform a nail and tongue analysis, iridology, zinc status testing and refer for functional pathology if required. These tests help the practitioner gain information to assertain if there may be any other underlying issues apart from the current presenting complaint, all of which will enable the client to be treated effectively.
A personalised treatment plan will then be made which may include one or a combination of nutritional supplements, dietary and lifestyle adjustments, diet plans, herbal remedy, homeopathics and flower essences. All in consultation with the client to ensure any changes will work in with their lifestyle and goals.
My goal is to see all my clients happy and healthy and being the best version of themselves possible.
To achieve this I provide advice, support and encouragement to my clients to make any necessary changes or adjustments that will help lead them onto the path to wellness.
I work by combining research-based medicine, traditional knowledge and my own clinical and life experiences to give my clients the best possible care.
Together we will form a partnership, ensuring any changes we make are compatible with the clients’ lifestyle and to educate and inspire you along the way to take control of your own health.
Typically between 60-90mins
During our initial consultation I will conduct a full case history, go over any presenting symptoms and conduct routine testing as necessary.

A personalised treatment plan will then be implemented which may include dietary, herbal, flower essence, nutritional and lifestyle components.

Our follow-up consultation may be conducted anywhere between 1-4 weeks after initial consult depending on clients needs and presenting symptoms. This is where we review and monitor any changes or new symptoms and discuss any test results. We will then tweak the treatment or dietary plan (depending on type of followup consult) and make adjustments as necessary.
