My herbal and naturopathic clinic is located in Dunedin New Zealand where I specialises in positive transitions to specific diets and lifestyles. Whether you have been advised to give up certain foods and do not know where to start or are interested in adapting a more plant focused diet, I can offer support and positivity at what can be a potentially confronting and difficult time. I can also offer support for any other health and wellness concerns. My philopsophy as a naturopath and herbalist is to bring kindness to any current situation. I encourage clients to find ways to practice kindness in many areas of their life including self care, achievable diet, positive thoughts and enjoyable body movement. Contact me for chat to see if this is right for you.
What to expect in a consultation
If you have never had a consultation with a naturopath or herbalist before i can understand how it can be a daunting thought when you do not know what to expect. Rest assured that a consultation is intended to be a safe, kind and supportive environment to share your story and talk about your intentions for your health and wellbeing journey. Upon booking a consultation you will have opportunities to speak with me regarding your concerns for initial consultations and any fears you may have around this.
Initial consultations are scheduled for between 60-90 minutes and this is an opportunity to go through your health history and get true understanding of your needs and how I can help you. Your first consultation may include discussions around the following;
overview of body systems (including cardiovascular system, nervous system, reproductive system, gastrointestinal system, moods and emotional history,
medications and supplements
hopes and aspirations
Sometimes you may wonder why I am asking certain questions, however, your whole story is very important to understand the best ways to move forward. You may at any time choose not to answer certain questions or ask me what significance they have.
Towards the end of the consultation we will discuss your personalised wellness plan and talk through immediate strategies/herbs/supplements if they present themselves. We then schedule another appointment for around 1 week later (at no extra charge) so i can present and go over your full wellness plan which can include recipes, wellness strategies, herbs, supplements and lifestyle practices that are completely personalised to you. This time is important to make sure i am offering you the best plan possible. Everyone is special and unique thus I adopt a 'no one plan fits all' attitude and yours will be deeply individual and appropriate to you.
Once your wellness plan is presented we book a follow up appointment to see how you are tracking and any changes that need to be made.
Booking a consultation

Once consultation is booked I will send you a general health questionnaire to fill in and send back to me prior to our meeting to maximise time available in consultation.
