My professional qualifications include clinical naturopath, nutritionist, medical herbalist, and trained Skin Therapist.
The specific areas of naturopathic treatment I am successful in includes clear skin health (acne, rosacea, psoriasis, dermatitis and anti-ageing); digestive disorders including IBS; and stress and anxiety related issues. My passion comes from my satisfied clients who get the results they came in for.
My qualifications include an Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy and an Advanced Diploma of Western Herbal Medicine from Endeavour College of Natural Medicine. I am an accredited member of the National Herbalists Association of Australia (NHAA) the oldest association in Australia with the highest standards of its members. I am currently undertaking a Diploma of Counselling with the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors, to compliment the holistic treatment of my clients.
As a reformed acne sufferer, having eczema as a child, AND a family history of psoriasis, I know the emotional distress and frustration involved having skin problems. Throughout my 20s I experienced acne caused by stress, diet, digestive system issues, lifestyle and of course hormonal fluctuations. I desperately tried all the "pharmaceutical skin treatments" including synthetic hormones OCPs, Accutane and antibiotic pills and creams. We all know how that goes right? Stop the treatment, symptoms reappear. Why...because those treatments only target the symptoms, not address the true causes of skin problems...and there can be several. The frustration, anxiety and hopelessness of my skin issues finally lead me on my own path of healing.
It gives me great satisfaction to see skin improvements in my clients without the use of powerful pharmaceutical drugs and the nasty side effects that go with them. Let's do this right!
