THE PROCESS

Your Initial consultation is essentially a fact-finding mission, that enables me to connect the dots in your health history, in a way that will help me formulate a personalised treatment plan that is right for you. 

In this comprehensive consultation I will go through with you a detailed review of your:

Current Health Challenges

Past Medical History

Family History 

Sleep, Energy and Stress Levels

Digestive Health

Immune Function

Hormonal Health

Hair, Skin & Nail Diagnosis

Exercise and Activity 

Environmental Exposures

Diet and Nutrition Challenges

Nutritional & Herbal Supplement Review 

Identify your Wellness Goals

During this consultation you will be given your personalised treatment plan and there's likely to be some 'homework' to complete before your follow up appointment. In many cases further pathology or functional medicine testing is required, to reveal some of the missing peices of your health puzzle. These tests can help identify the hidden causes of ill-health that have gone undetected for a long time. 

Your second consultation is usually scheduled 1-2 weeks later and can take up to 45-minutes. This is when your specifics of your treatment protocol begins to take shape. From there we will have a clearer idea of how frequently your consultations will be. This will depend on the type of conditions we're treating and the type of treatment protocol you're embarking on.

Standard consultations will continue weekly, fortnightly or monthly depending on the individual. Each follow up consultation is an opportunity to refine your protocol and track progress.

Most people end up working with me for anywhere between 3-6 months depending on their goals and how well they're able to implement the strategies and action steps required. From there it's about maintaining your results and this may require monthly, or quarterly check ins where necessary. 

This is your wellness journey, and along the way you'll learn the unique tools, tricks and strategies that empower you to optimise your wellbeing, increase your vitality, and reach your health potential. I'm here every step of the way and you'll have access to me throughout the process, not simply during your appointment.

YOU DESERVE TO FEEL BETTER

It's time to stop putting up with mediocre health. I'm here to help guide you back to a state of optimal wellbeing where you can reach your full health potential and truly thrive.

MY 'TOOLKIT'

Treatment options

As a Naturopath and Functional Medicine Practitioner, I take a holistic approach to your wellbeing. Whether you’re coming in with an already diagnosed medical condition or you're struggling to get to the bottom of why you just don't feel quite right, I can help you understand why, what treatments will work best for you and create a personalised roadmap back to optimal health. I draw on a combination of the following to achieve the best outcomes for you.

Nutritional Medicine

Personalised nutrition and dietary advice is incorporated in every consultation. And where appropriate, the highest quality and purity nutritional supplements are prescribed.

Herbal Medicine

Drawing on evidence based, scientific research together with traditional knowledge of herbs, the highest grade of herbal medicines are used for both acute or chronic health concerns. 

Holistic Counselling

Mindset coaching and holistic counselling is an integral part of creating change. In order to achieve physical wellbeing, we must always address emotional and mental wellbeing. 

LIFESTYLE Medicine

The therapeutic application of environmental, lifestyle and behavioural principles are implemented to achieve lasting, long term resolution of your health concerns.

Specialised Testing

Specialised functional medicine testing is utilised to identify underlying causes of your health concerns and work out what's happening behind the scenes in your body. 

There are many "tools" in my toolkit, and the way in which I create your individualised treatment plan will depend on where you're currently at on your health journey as well as your ideal goal or destination. There is no 'one size fits all approach' so you can be sure that you will receive advice and a plan that is specific to YOUR body, not everybody.

I draw on the most innovative and advanced functional medicine testing options to dig deeper into your health concerns. This may involve testing saliva, stool or urine to find out more about what's happening behind the scenes in your body. You can find out more about the types of testing here.

I discuss lifestyle medicine with every single patient as these are the fundamental practices and behaviours you can implement on your own to help you achieve your desired health goals and keep you feeling amazing for the long haul.

It goes without saying that the food you eat plays a pivotal role in achieving and maintaining optimal health. I'm here to help you make sense of the abundance of information out there and help you understand how to eat for your body.
