Frequently Asked Questions

 

If you’ve never experienced the magic that is naturopathy before, I bet you have questions!

Check out my FAQ’s below – and get in touch if you’re still unsure about anything

What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy is a complementary medicine practice. This means we often work together with your primary physician, and incorporate herbal and nutritional advice and prescriptions, lifestyle reviews and suggestions, diet advice and more.

It is my belief that the best naturopathic consults make you feel heard, comfortable and empowered to tackle your health concerns – this is an art and a science – and as so, every consult is different and individual.

The core principle of naturopathy is the belief that our bodies have an inbuilt ability to heal itself, given the right conditions. My aim is to help get you and your body into that state, to ensure optimal wellbeing and health.

Naturopathic consults have the luxury of time. This means we can dive deep into your health history and discover the full picture of your health in a way no other practitioner would have time for.

Perhaps you’ve got an issue which Western Medicine hasn’t been able to give any answers to, maybe you feel like you aren’t being heard by your doctor and want more personalised advice – I can help you.

My areas of genius (and passion!) as a practitioner include (but aren’t limited to)

  • Reviving lowered libidos
  • Supporting optimal sexual health
  • Balancing out hormonal issues
  • Investigating gynaecological conditions
  • Restoring energy levels

But of course I can assist you with many other concerns regarding your health.

My practice is backed by the most up to date research and recommendations informed by evidence. Any herbal or nutritional supplement I recommend has been thoroughly researched, and any potential interactions or side effects have been taken into account.

How and When Can I Book?

I’ve made it as simple as possible to book in with me! Clicking on any of the “Work with Me”, “Book Now” or “Make an Appointment” buttons and you’ll be sent right to the booking page!

You can also message me on Facebook or Instagram and I’ll send you the booking link.

 

Consulting Hours

Wed: 2PM- 7PM

Thurs: Closed

Fri: 9AM – 1PM

Other consultations via appointment only

 

What Should I Expect?
Prior to the consult, you’ll receive a comprehensive wellbeing questionnaire, as well as a specific sexual health questionnaire that needs to be filled in and sent back before the appointment date (Ideally, at least 12 hours or more before the consultation time). This allows me to further target your consult and focus on the things that are concerning you the most!!

An initial consult takes 75-minutes, a follow up consult will take 40-minutes. For minor ailments, Acute consultations are available (25mins) for existing clients only (at practitioner’s discretion).

This will depend on your presenting complaints, commitment to the treatment protocols and your level of vitality (aka natural healing ability). A common rule of thumb amongst naturopaths is one month of treatment per year of condition – however this does vary.

After your initial consult, you’ll be booked in for a return consultation after 2-3 weeks to monitor your progress, address any new symptoms and reassess your health goals. Further consult requirements will be discussed in this meeting.

 

You’ll walk away from our consultations feeling empowered about making health changes, with actionable steps to take and individualised prescriptions tailored to your health – every step of the way, I’m there to support and cheer you on!

How Much Will It Cost?
Initial Consults start at $127 for 75 mins, 45 min follow ups start at $87. Acute consultations for minor ailments start at $47 (for current clients only at practitioner’s discretion).

Payment is required to secure your appointment at time of booking – cancellations with less than 24 hours notice (or missed appointments) will result in forfeit of payment (except in exceptional circumstances at practitioner’s discretion).

3 cost-effective packages are available: The Starter, The Standard & The Ultimate Glow Package – Stay tuned for updates. Monthly payment plans for packages will be available.

All prescriptions, extra testing and specific reports are extra – This amount will be invoiced to client to be paid within 14 days. 

Concession and Senior discounts do not apply. 

Can I Get Private Health Fund Rebates?
Online consultations are not covered by health fund rebates.
How Do I Pay?
Payment is due at time of booking. Once your booking has been chosen, the booking page will direct you to payment options. 

Invoices for prescription items, further testing or reports will be invoiced after the consultation and are to be paid with 14 days.

Missed consults, or cancelled (with less than 24 hours notice) will result in the full consult fee being charged.

How Quickly Will I Notice Results?
This will depend on your presenting complaints, commitment to the treatment protocols and your level of vitality (aka natural healing ability). A common rule of thumb amongst naturopaths is one month of treatment per year of condition – however this does vary, and it’d be unethical of me to promise you that you’ll get results just as quickly as when compared to another client. Naturopathy addresses the root cause and often, unlearning a lifetime of habits takes persistence and dedication to the treatment plan prescribed. 

I can promise you however that it’s worth it in the end! No more band-aid fixes, let’s address your wellbeing from the beginning and do it right!

After your initial consult, you’ll be booked in for a return consultation after 2-3 weeks to monitor your progress, address any new symptoms and reassess your health goals. Further consult requirements will be discussed in this meeting.

Are My Details Kept Private?
I take your confidentiality seriously.

Anything you tell me in a consultation setting is private. I will not divulge any of your information without your consent, within current health record policies. Your records are for my eyes only.

Do You Offer Testing?
Pathology testing can be ordered via independent laboratories at additional cost if testing is required.

Wellness Packages may include specific testing – any additional tests will require further payment.

I can also write letters, with your permission, outlining your presenting concerns and potential test requirements to your general practitioner, who may order you the tests you require at a Medicare cost (however this will depend on the flexibility of your doctor and their medicare guidelines!).

What If I'm On Other Medications?
I look into your medications and only prescribe herbal supplements that will not interact.

It’s always good practice to advise any practitioner you are seeing of any supplements, herbs and medicines you are taking.
