I`m a registered and clinically trained Nutritional Therapist, Associate Naturopath and teacher of the Fertility Awareness Method. I am also an Aromatherapist, Reflexologist, Reiki practitioner and Family Herbalist.
My area of speciality is women`s health. In particular, I work with couples who want to nourish their fertility and achieve a healthy pregnancy. I work with menopausal women who are challenged by uncomfortable symptoms and younger women with menstrual discomfort. I`m here to help your hormones feel happier!
Although my specialism is Women`s health, I am available to discuss any unrelated health condition that may be concerning you. I also offer children`s appointments.
I`ve had my own experience with ill-health, so I fully understand what you are going through. You can read more about my story here.
The Root Cause
Ever feel like your symptoms are a sign that something deeper is going on? You are most probably right. I`ll help you to understand the root cause of what may be triggering your troublesome symptoms.
Simply treating symptoms is not the answer to long-lasting health. Naturopaths believe that It is vital to find the reason why these symptoms are appearing in the first place and address the underlying issues that may be causing your ill-health.
Making changes can seem a scary idea, but i`m here to help and guide you every step of the way.
What does it involve?
If you reach out to me for support, I will ask you to tell me about the health challenges that you face.
I will send you a pre-consultation questionnaire to complete and return to me prior to our consultation.
I may suggest some private testing or refer you to your G.P for tests.
After that we will arrange to meet either in -person, or online for your consultation, which generally lasts somewhere around 90 minutes.
I will go through your dietary and lifestyle plan and may suggest targeted nutritional supplements to address your problem.
You will receive at least 1 follow-up appointment over a minimum of 2 months where your diet, lifestyle and supplement plan will be tweaked to evolve.
"A quick fix is never a good fix"
Regaining the body`s balance takes time, effort and patience. It is a process that has to be followed strategically and in a sequence which the body knows how to respond to. As a rule, the longer you have been dealing with your health challenges, the longer it will take to re-balance.
The body is an amazing and remarkable thing. It is constantly trying to protect us and maintain homeostasis, even though at times it feels as if it is the opposite. It is resilient and capable of regenerating better than we can imagine, if the conditions are right for it to do so.
