I offer a consultation style to suit individual need, budget and location. Each appointment embraces natural healing techniques utilising naturopathy and herbal medicine. I integrate Western and Eastern philosophy, weaving tradition with modern science and research including experiential and intuitive knowledge to nurture the body’s self-healing wisdom.
During a consultation and depending on the appointment type we may explore your dreams and aspirations, goals and priorities, past medical history and family medical history, symptoms, diet, lifestyle, supplement intake and any other information you wish to share. Health appraisal questionnaires are also used to engage the whole you and your environment, enabling us to discover imbalances and disturbances at a root level. With your permission I may use clinical assessment tools such as blood pressure, tongue observation, medical astrology and dowsing.
My primary role is to guide and support you with practical self-help techniques, designed to your specific needs and co-created so that you feel listened to, cared for and inspired to implement positive change.
To ensure a safe process suggestions and recommendations take into consideration of existing treatment plans for potential interactions and/or contraindications. In some cases I may (with your permission or at your request) make referrals, dialogue with health professionals and suggest gold standard laboratory testing to further investigate.
It is advisable to follow-up one month after the initial consultation and then at three monthly intervals to monitor, evaluate and discuss your progress, repeating and altering wellness programs and prescription care parcels where necessary.
Each person responds differently to their care plan depending on general levels of health and fitness, financial investment and commitment. It can take time, patience and discipline to see long-term body-mind changes, especially in complex or chronic cases and unresolved conditions or situations.
Step by step each appointment adds another layer to the healing process. If your situation is beyond my ability to tend, I will refer you to a practitioner who can better meet your needs.
