I am a naturopath, nutritionist, herbalist and homeopath. Different titles but all essentially pathways heading in the same direction – to a healthier you. As a wellness practitioner my role is to facilitate your best environment both internally and externally to bring about your best health. This might mean dietary changes, nutritional supplements, herbal or homeopathic remedies, exercise plans or counselling. Every person is different and therefore every treatment approach is unique. The part of my job that I love the most is meeting a new client, getting to know them and how they tick then finding the most successful ways in which we can make changes in their life that will positively influence their health.
A bit more about me and what I have done:
I have worked in the health industry for 8 years. After a health crisis in my early twenties I was referred to a holistic Dietitian who completely turned my world around. I had no idea that my diet was having such a negative impact on my body and it was the sense of health and empowerment I gained from that event which inspired me to study nutrition. I went on to study herbal medicine and homeopathy as part of my training due to meeting some inspirational lecturers and mentors. They taught and demonstrated the benefits of incorporating the use of these modalities in order to balance and restore the body. I also went on to complete my Bachelor of Health Science as I believe in the importance of using research and science in my treatment approach.
Throughout my time studying I worked at a female gym. I had the privilege of getting to know many ladies and what they wanted for their health. For many weight loss was on the priority list and I worked with them week by week to help them achieve these goals. It gave me respect for the emotional journey that weight loss can be and I believe I am a successful weight loss practitioner due the hundreds of women who taught me what works.
I have spent time working in many different clinical settings meeting people from all walks of life with a range of health conditions. I was head clinical Naturopath at The Golden Door health retreat in the beautiful Hunter Valley NSW where I both consulted and ran seminars. It was here that I met many stressed out corporate clients with a myriad of health complaints (high blood pressure, skin reactions, hormonal imbalances, weight gain, anxiety, digestive issues) really stemming from one main issue – they were super stressed! I saw some amazing results by assisting these people with their stress response and restoring their bodies so that their symptoms resolved and they were resilient once again.
Last year I made the big move from Sydney to Melbourne and have set up a clinic and practice at various locations around Melbourne. I also travel back to Sydney regularly to consult and catch up with loved ones.
