I grew up in the UK, and became interested in mind-body-health in my 20’s when I took a 2 year course in energetic healing. This was a major turning point in my life, where I learned how to find and resolve blockages through colour, mineral and intuitive treatments.
About Naturopathy, Bodywork, Nutrition
I moved to Australia in 2004 to complete Bachelor Degrees in Naturopathy and Nutrition. I gained work experience at a boutique health retreat at the Sunshine Coast in the final year of my studies, and quickly felt drawn to women’s health, encompassing hormone balance, fertility support, pregnancy and post partum care for the new mum and the babies.
I explored my passion for birthing through working as a doula, providing birth support to a women over a couple of years, which was exciting and fulfilling. I later studied BodyTalk, which works to balance via tapping, and never fail to be amazed by the changes that can occur in women’s health when working in this way.
My journey continued
I attended a Herbal Apprenticeship programme on the Isle of Arran, Scotland in 2017, alongside just 2 other chosen students. This deepened my learnings around herbs and their healing properties as we lived, breathed and meditated with plants. We learned to identify, wildcraft and make medicines, and to understand each herb on an emotional and energetic level.
I have travelled to the USA to study with well learned practitioners, who also work with herbs in a more traditional way than we tend to learn in Australian college. This helps me to choose the ‘best possible fit’ for individuals, based on constitutions and body signs. I love combining my scientific and pharmacology knowledge alongside this training, which is the foundation of my herbal work now. I now incorporate traditional body treatments within my clinic appointments.
I use BioFeedback technology, to provide a visual 3D scan to find the potential root cause of health issues, and have ongoing training via the training institute in Denver Colorado to keep me up to date.
About my philosophy
I have a strong philosophy of ‘less is more‘ when it comes to supplementation, and am aware that my industry has gained a reputation for heavy selling and bags full of products. By utilising the various tools of my practice, my focus is on finding the root cause to give advice that is practical and achievable. I prefer a strong focus on food, lifestyle and energetic balancing as much as possible.
My learning will never stop! But that’s the fun part of the journey, and every patient teaches me something new. I am privileged to be able to be a part of people’s life journey, and hope to do so for a long time in the future.
