Work with Me
You are many things to many people. This can leave you feeling stressed, overwhelmed and exhausted and at increased risk of chronic health problems. You may have some of these already:
- Metabolic dysfunction
- Hormonal irregularities
- Digestive disturbances
- Immune dysfunction such as allergies and food intolerances
- Mental health
Despite all the demands on you and your time, you want health and vitality for you and your family. Perhaps your child has some chronic health problems or needs support to increase their capacity to regulate their emotions, stay calm, focus on tasks and enjoy a calmer, less stressful home life.
You want to feel calmer, less anxious and stressed, able to cope with life’s busy-ness, and generally have more energy and vitality to get through each day. Perhaps ease allergies, anxiety, depression, persistent aches and pains, repair the damage that chronic stress or illness has had on your body, or enjoy regular and pain-free menstrual cycles. Maybe you want to give your kids the gift of good health, vitality, energy and the ability to regulate their emotions, concentrate and learn. Most of all, you want to enjoy family life.
Your physiological, mental, and emotional health form the basis for being a motivated, inspired, energized, and successful person in your life. With health on your side, you can feel and be your best in your many roles. I can help you reach your health goals and experience health, vitality, and energy using my Naturopathic tool kit of western herbs, nutrition, and flower essences. Providing education so you may be empowered to take control of your health using diet and lifestyle is an important part of my treatment plan.
Description of services
Using a holistic, Naturopathic approach means I conduct a thorough history and physical assessment of you to build a picture of your body’s triggers, inherent strengths and nurture points. By understanding these, I can put together a treatment plan to support your body’s innate ability to heal and restore balance within itself.
To support this approach, the initial stage includes a series of three appointments to gather information, develop your personalised wellness plan, and discuss this with you. During the treatment stage consultations are scheduled according to your response to treatment and the complexity of issues being supported.
Initial Stage - $310
This stage and the fee includes time to gather, analyse and assess information and results and develop the personalised Wellness Plan. A payment plan is available for the initial stage. A deposit of $110 is taken at the time of booking, followed by $100 payment for two weeks following. Select the payment plan option when booking online.
Initial Consultation – 60 minutes
This appointment is dedicated to gather facts and information about you and your health issues, goals, and current lifestyle.
Testing Consultation - 30 minutes
In-clinic questioning and testing increases my understanding of the current state of your health and establishes a baseline for us to compare as your treatment progresses. Blood pressure, zinc taste test, and iris, flower essence, tongue and nail analysis are conducted. You will take home a personalised Australian Bush Flower Essence blend. There may be additional questionnaires I need you to complete during this appointment depending on your health goals.
Any general or functional pathology requirements will be identified and discussed in this appointment. Additional tests may be required to clarify genetic traits, sensitivities, allergies, or how you are reacting to your current lifestyle. If a referral letter to a doctor or specialist is required, it will be written for you at this time. Please bring any current test results with you to your initial consultation. Most Doctors and allied health professionals are happy to give you a copy of your test results.
This consultation may immediately follow the initial consultation.
Personalised Wellness Plan report of findings - 30 minutes
Once these two appointments have been conducted I take all the information I have gathered about you and spend time analysing and researching your current state of health, why you are feeling the way you do, your inherent strengths and nurture points, and what we will do to support you to achieve your health goals. This research time is dedicated to you and is included within your initial stage fee.
Treatment stage - $80/30 minutes
Restoring your health and wellness is an exciting process. I am here to support and guide
you. During the treatment stage you’ll develop a new understanding of your health and wellbeing, along with new-found energy and wellness as we work to your personalised Wellness Plan. In the early part of the treatment stage, we’ll see each other more regularly. My aim is that as you achieve your health goals and develop an understanding of your inherent strengths and nurture points; maintaining your health and wellness will simply become part of the way you live your life. At this time we will not need to see each other regularly, though bi-annual appointments to focus on disease prevention are recommended.
What happens Next?
Once you have booked your consultation time you will receive a welcome email which contains information about this process, what you need to do, and link to some questionnaires to complete. Please allow some time (20 minutes is sufficient) before your consultation to fill these in. You will also notice a 2-Day ‘Food, Mood, and Poo’ Diary attached to your welcome email. Bring your completed diary to the initial consultation.
To confirm your booking, a deposit or full payment is required (depending on the type of appointment you have chosen). If for some reason you need to reschedule your appointment, please give at least two business days’ notice, or you will be charged in full for the missed appointment. (Please note that the appointment can be conducted by phone or video conference at the allocated time if necessary.) Giving notice allows me to offer this time slot to someone else who may be waiting for an earlier appointment.
Recommended herbal formulas, nutritional supplements, other naturopathic products, and laboratory diagnostic testing are not included in visit fees. You will be notified of all associated costs upon recommendation of specific health products and/or laboratory tests where known.
Please note that you are always free to choose where to purchase recommended products.

Acute consultations - $60/20 minutes
