Naturopathy is a type of holistic healthcare that seeks to treat the root cause of an illness rather than just the symptoms. It’s practised widely throughout New Zealand and the world.

How I can help
With a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine, I’m a fully qualified naturopath specialising in reproductive health. I mainly treat women with hormone-related conditions, including:
- Pre-conception Health
- Pregnancy and Labour Preparation
- Irregular/painful menses
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Naturopathic care focuses on the whole person. It transcends physical health and also takes into account your lifestyle, emotions, thoughts, and beliefs.
What to expect
Once an appointment is confirmed through the booking system a form will be emailed to you to complete and return prior to the initial consultation.
It is also recommended to obtain any medical or laboratory records from the past year 1-2 years. Physical exams and further lab tests may or may not be necessary.
The more prepared I am for the visit the more time we can spend delving deep to devise a holistic treatment strategy and get you on your way to wellness.
In Naturopathy the focus is to treat the underlying cause, as well as addressing the symptoms. Treatment plans are multi-leveled and may combine diet, lifestyle, herbs, supplements and counseling.
Recommendations are based on clinical evidence and scientific research
Rationales, expected outcomes and time frames are clearly discussed during visits.
Naturopathy is not a quick fix! Treatments address the underlying causes and look to restore dis-ease. And it takes time.
When it comes to supplements, I limit the number at first in order to be able to assess what is working and what needs adjusting.
Treatment plans are individualised meaning you are involved in creating them. I listen to what you are willing to do and not do.
Compassion and connection
My approach to naturopathy is one of compassion and connection. I provide a non-judgemental, safe, supportive space to explore your frustrations and fears.
I understand how vulnerable it can feel asking for help. It’s an immense privilege to work with women and be trusted with their health concerns.
I can help you embrace every season. Even the stormy ones. Let’s make womanhood wonderful again.
