Naturopath and Complementary Skin Consultant
I have been working in the health industry for 25 years and after completing my Bachelor of Science at UWA went on to complete an Advanced Diploma in Naturopathy. I am accredited with the Australian Natural Therapies Association and hold a Certificate 3&4 in Fitness from AIPT.
I am a mum of two busy teenage boys, enjoy running and the gym and I am passionate about cooking healthy meals for friends and family. I love to educate people about a healthy lifestyle and give them practical advice that is easy to implement in their everyday lives.
Working as a Naturopath for the last 15 years and working with patients with skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne extensively for the last five years I work to help people to find the triggers to their health conditions not just mask the symptoms. I approach health and nutrition simply; to keep things achievable, practical and sustainable so that people can live a healthy and happy life.
How can Naturopathy help you?
If you really want to take charge of your health, it is important to understand the root cause of why you have become unwell. A naturopath spends time investigating all areas of your health including digestion, immune function, nutritional status, medical history, diet, lifestyle and stress response in order to provide you with a suitable treatment plan.
Consultations are done in clinic and this involves discussing all the symptoms you are experiencing in detail. You will then be asked questions in relation to your digestion and elimination, stress, sleep and mood, reproductive health and so on. Your health history, current medication and health status, nutritional deficiencies as well as diet and lifestyle will be discussed.
Further investigation such as blood tests, hair mineral analysis, hormonal saliva testing and questionnaires may be needed to get a better evaluation of health and underlying factors leading to symptoms.
An individual treatment plan will be discussed and follow up consultations are usually within two weeks. Plans may consist of diet and lifestyle changes, herbal medicine, vitamin and mineral supplements and homeopathic medicine.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I was getting to desperation point with all the flaking, itching and redness on my scalp. Kirsty prescribed me a cream, shampoo, vitamins and tweaked my diet. The care from Kirsty is outstanding. After two weeks the flakes have all but disappeared, the itching has reduced and so has the redness. I can not believe the difference. I feel so great and bursting with happiness.
