Initial Consultations - 75 minutes $215
At the initial consultation, we talk about your health concerns in detail:
~ your individual health concerns and symptoms,
~ the affect on your lifestyle caused by your ill health
~ your eating habits,
~ your everyday routines,
~ your health history and
~ your hopes for your health
I almost always prescribe herbal medicine at the first appointment, along with suggestions for diet changes. You will be emailed a comprehensive health plan following your consultation (more details below).
The herbal medicine is a short term prescription, which kicks off the healing process and helps you to feel well quite quickly. The cost of herbal medicine is additional to the consultation fee.
When you come to your initial consultation, please bring copies of any recent medical reports or pathology tests.
Acute Consultations - $60
Once I have seen you regularly as a client, acute complaints such as cold and flu, urinary tract infections, sinus infections, hay fever etc. can be treated quickly.
This consultation takes only 20 minutes.
Follow-up Consultations - 45 minutes $135
The follow-up is a shorter consultation, to review your progress and plan for the next stage of your health journey.
We will discuss and revise your health plan at the beginning of this appointment, to ensure that it is achievable and sustainable for you.
I am dedicated to a 'food is medicine' approach to healing, so dietary changes will always be my primary focus, with supplementation of nutrients only when absolutely necessary.
I may also recommend exercise, sunshine, flower essences, homeopathy and/or relaxation techniques. Whatever is best for your condition!
Seeing a naturopath for the first time
When you come to see me as a client, it usually isn't just a one off visit. Most people present with health problems that require several consultations to get their health back on track.
Our aim is to discover the underlying cause(s) for your health problem and to implement dietary and lifestyle changes that will support your body in self healing and repair.
How long it takes for you to feel 100% will depend on how long it has been since you were well. People with long term, chronic conditions should expect their healing journey to take more than 6 months.
I am able to tailor packages for people who require a mix of naturopathic consultations and health coaching.
Programs are a great value way to focus on your health over a specific time period.
Your Health Plan
Your health plan is a comprehensive document that will summarise your health concerns and goals, and set out a time frame for achieving the goals.
The health plan will detail all the important points that we have covered in the consultation, including how and when to take herbal medicine or supplements.
The health plan contains individualised diet recommendations to begin your health journey that are specific to your health condition(s).
The health plan may also recommend exercise and other life style changes that will assist your healing.
Cancellations and rescheduling policy
I understand that it is sometimes necessary to change your appointment.
You may cancel or reschedule your appointment at any time up to 24 hours before your consultation.
However, please note that a cancellation and rescheduling fee of 100% applies to all changes within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment.
Health Fund Rebate
Unfortunately all health funds ceased to give rebates for naturopathic consultations on 1st April 2019.
