You are many things to many people. This can leave you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, exhausted and at increased risk of chronic health problems. You may have some of these already:

  • Metabolic dysfunction – polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), fatty liver, insulin resistance, sugar cravings, type 2 diabetes, thyroid dysfunction
  • Hormonal irregularities – premenstrual pain, scant or missed periods, heightened peri-menopause symptoms
  • Digestive disturbances – constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, pain
  • Immune dysfunction such as allergies, food intolerances, eczema, psoriasis, autoimmune disorders, muscle and joint pain
  • Anxiety, depression, burnout, fatigue, brain fog, insomnia, sleep disruption.

You want health, vitality, energy and enthusiasm.

You want to feel less anxious and stressed. Be able to cope with life’s busy-ness. Have more energy and vitality to get through each day. Perhaps you’d like allergies, anxiety, depression, or persistent aches and pains eased. Or enjoy regular and pain-free menstrual cycles. Most of all, you want to enjoy life.

Your physiological, mental, and emotional health form the basis for being a motivated, inspired, energized, and successful person. 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.  An important part of my treatment plan is providing education so you are empowered to take control of your health using diet and lifestyle.

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. With this understanding, I put together a treatment plan to support your body’s innate ability to heal and restore balance.

To support this holistic view I take a two-staged approach. The initial stage includes questionnaires and consultations to gather information, develop your personalised Wellness Plan and debrief you. During the treatment stage consultations are scheduled according to the complexity of issues being supported.

Consultations are available face-to-face in Sassafras, Victoria, at the Ranges Health Hub (2B/353 Mount Dandenong Tourist Road, Sassafras) or online. Discounts apply for concession or pension card holders, babies, children and multiple family members. Appointments are available on Thursday evenings, Fridays (including evenings) and Saturdays.

Initial Stage  

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. To take advantage of this, please email me.

Initial Consultation – 60-90 minutes – $180  BOOK A TIME

This is dedicated to gather facts and information about you and your health issues, goals, and current lifestyle. I will gather information from the questionnaires and the Food, Mood and Poo diary you receive by email and complete before the initial consultation.

I utilise in-clinic questioning and testing to increase my understanding of the current state of your health. Testing establishes a baseline for us to compare against as your treatment progresses. Blood pressure, zinc taste test and iridology, flower essence, tongue and nail analyses are conducted as needed. There may be additional questionnaires I need you to complete during or after this consultation depending on your health goals.

Any general or functional pathology requirements will be identified and discussed during this consultation. 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.

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.

You will take home a free personalised Australian Bush Flower Essence blend.

Personalised Wellness Plan report of findings – 45 minutes – $110 BOOK A TIME

I take all the information I have gathered about you and spend time analysing and assessing it. This time is dedicated just to you and is included within your initial consultation fee.

By analysing the information I have collected about you I have a wholistic view of your current state of health and your inherent strengths and nurture points. This helps me understand why you are feeling the way you are and what we need to do or change to alter this and move towards optimal health. You will receive a written report that details the recommendations I develop to support you in achieving your health goals. Diet, lifestyle, herb and nutritional supplementation recommendations are included in the Wellness Plan.

Treatment stage – $80/30 minutes BOOK A TIME

Restoring your health and wellness is an exciting process. During the treatment stage I’ll support you to develop a new understanding of your health and well-being. You will enjoy new-found energy and vitality as we work through the recommendations and changes detailed in 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 develop an understanding of your 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 Wellness Check consultations to focus on disease prevention are recommended.


Acute consultations – $60/20 minutes BOOK A TIME

Available for those needing Naturopathic support with acute illness, such as cold and flu symptoms, viruses, hay fever, warts, recovery from gastro, tonsilitis or thrush. This isn’t a full consultation and only focuses on the presenting complaint’s symptoms. You may need an initial consultation at another time if I feel there are more issues that need to be addressed. If more time or investigation is required, then please be aware that (with your agreement) this will be charged accordingly.

Please understand that the following mean an acute consultation isn’t suitable:

  • you’ve had the condition for more than one month;
  • you’re taking more than two medications;
  • you have severe allergies, asthma or eczema.

Not sure if an acute consult is suitable for you? Then please call me on 0418845944 or email info@akesohealthcare.com.au.
