Registered with National Herbalists Australia Association
I am a highly motivated and grounded practitioner with a passion for preventative health care and helping people restore balance and vitality into their lives.
I believe in treating my patients as individuals and tailoring treatment to suit the client’s own unique circumstances.
Having completed a Bachelor of Health Science - Naturopath, individual treatment places an emphasis in preventative care that encourages healthy lifestyle changes to restore balance to the body promoting long lasting wellness and vitality.
In support of promoting a healthy lifestyle as the core theme, treatment may include dietary recommendations, herbal remedies, and nutritional supplementation where required to restore balance to any presenting nutritional deficiencies.

Resources: A traditional and evidence-based journey
Naturopathy applies traditional, empirical, biomedical and scientific knowledge to optimise health and to prevent and treat disease. The principles of naturopathy are: supporting the body's innate healing power; identifying and treating the causes of illness; treating the whole person; promoting optimum health and preventing disease; and educating and actively engaging patients in the management of their health. Naturopathy is underpinned by holistic considerations of human health - physical, mental, spiritual and environmental. The practice of naturopathy utilises a range of modalities that are congruent with these principles. These commonly include dietary and lifestyle advice, nutritional medicine, herbal medicine, tactile therapies and iris analysis (Southern Cross University, School of Human Health Science, 2009).
