My main goal as a Naturopath is to empower people and equip you the tools and knowledge you need to manage your health.
In each consultation we explore the connection between the mind and body and the many factors which influencing your health. Helping you gain insight and understanding of your health. Naturopathic medicine seeks to correct the root cause of disease and ill health. Nothing is too complex, each health issue brings an opportunity to restore function in the body and support the body's natural healing mechanisms.
From each collaborative consultation comes the planning of realistic and achievable health goals and treatment plans. I believe that simply telling people what to do does not work, respectful discussions, understanding and compassion is crucial to positive health outcomes.
What we eat is the core of good health. Naturopathic nutrition incorporates the latest scientific nutritional research within the traditional natural medicine approach. It brings an individualised approach, working together to make realistic changes to what you eat, to improve specific health conditions and improve overall vitality.
Herbal Medicine has been used for over 2000 years. Drawing on this traditional knowledge along with modern scientific research of herbs, Herbal Medicine is used to help move the body and mind back to a state of balance. Herbal Medicine can be used for acute ailments, such as coughs or colds, as well as for chronic states such as autoimmune conditions.
Stress has become such a big part of our lives with so many demands on our time and challenges to overcome. The mind and the body are so intricately linked, when we are stressed the body responds as well. Over time stress begins to wear us down emotionally and physically. But there are practical ways we can help respond to stress in different ways and not let it overwhelm us.

My passion for natural medicine and health brought me to Melbourne in 2010, from my beach side town of Newcastle. The first thing I noticed was that being healthy in a city was hard! The lifestyle is completely different. I could no longer head to the beach any time I wanted, it was much colder and I was inside sitting down more than I had ever before. It took a good couple of years to make a new healthy lifestyle for myself here, and its still an ongoing process. But it taught me that health means a lot more than just being physically fit.
After completing my degree at the Southern School of Natural Therapies I have gone on to work at Five Elements in North Fitzroy. I was awarded the 2016 Laureate Universities Alumni Entrepreneur Grant for my work in setting up a a free Naturopathic clinic in partnership with the Aboriginal community in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. As part of this I received a scholarship for a Graduate Certificate in Collective Entrepreneurship, so my studies continue.
I really enjoy the wide scope of health issues I can help with, and have a special interest in working with people who are experiencing depression and anxiety, chronic stress and burnout. It is so rewarding working with people from getting them through the initial acute stage and then working with them to rebuild their vitality and be able to manage their own health. It is such a privilege to be part of people's journey.
