I'M BEING TREATED BY ANOTHER PRACTITIONER, WILL YOU BE IN TOUCH WITH THEM?

Oftentimes, yes. I really enjoy working with other practitioners to build a solid support team around you as necessary. There will be times when I believe you can benefit from skills outside my areas of expertise and (after seeking consent with you,) I may refer you to these practitioners eg. for manual therapies like massage or acupuncture, endocrinology, counselling etc.

I will often write referrals for testing that need to be sent to your GP, with the aim of collaborating together on your treatment. I will never encourage you to stop taking a medication prescribed by your health care provider without first consulting them and aim to meet you where you're at and work from there.

 

I WANT TO SEE A NATUROPATH BUT IT ISN'T IN MY BUDGET

Please get in touch to discuss sliding scale offerings. I believe holistic health care and herbal medicine should be accessible to all. 

 

DOES THE CONSULT FEE INCLUDE MY PRESCRIPTION?

No it does not.

The consult fee encompasses my time researching and preparing for our initial consultation (based on your answers from your intake form) our 1.5 hours together in the initial consultation taking into account your full health history including diet and lifestyle factors, referrals, dietary and lifestyle analysis and plans which may extend to custom meal plans and nutrition tracking, iridology and physical examinations as required eg. skin analysis, blood pressure etc.

All prescriptions are customised to your needs, individually. I utilise the highest quality practitioner only supplements and herbal preparations to achieve optimum results.
