online gut & skin
health consultations

  Have the feeling you or your wee one may be reacting to something? A recent allergy diagnosis left you fearful and overwhelmed - or itchy or weeping skin that's not responding to the creams? For many, it may just be navigating gut healing is feeling overly challenging, and you're not sure what you're missing or what to try next.
 
Poor gut health doesn't just show up in our digestive systems as bloating, constipation, colic or reflux. It's also connected to our skin, immunity, respiratory systems and even weight, sleep and moods. Symptoms that are dismissed as being normal, but feel anything but. We know we don't feel great so we google them, join Facebook groups, restrict our diets, slather everyone in coconut oil, grab any probiotic off the shelf and buy the most natural detergent at the supermarket, all in the name of "gut health" and yet, the symptoms haven't resolved and we don't quite understand why.

The good news is that it is 100% possible to be symptom-free, as well as thrive. You just need the right support and a tailored holistic approach that addresses the root cause which is where I come in. As an Integrative Nutrition Coach who specialises in eczema, allergies and gut health, I have been independently researching and writing about real food, gut health and family wellness for ten years, incorporating this knowledge and experience into my clinic to help you head in a whole new direction.

Our bodies are smart with their attempts to get our attention but sometimes we don't know how to translate the signals. During our sessions, we'll review what you've tried, build your knowledge and give you a safe space to ask the questions you need. You will get both emotional and practical support because if gut healing is a jigsaw puzzle, I'm here to help you figure out where the pieces fit and get as much from the game as possible. Whether you're starting from scratch or just stuck, working with me really can be the game changer! As a bonus all initial sessions and action plans will receive a copy of my recipe ebook with my compliments so you can get started with great food.

 

Sound good? Let's do this.

the process

I don't sell any products directly (and am staunchly anti-multi level marketing, extreme cleanses etc) so my focus is on empowering and educating you to get to the root cause of symptoms and take control. During our initial appointment, I dedicate one hour so we can discuss your situation and for me to gather as much relevant information as possible to be able to offer high quality customised strategies and recommendations to consider. If you require testing or care outside my scope, I refer onto a range of practitioners and modalities. While some of my questions may appear irrelevant at first, I will explain how the dots may be connected. While my goal is to offer more rather than less and I have a history of achieving remarkable results 'quickly', it is important to note gut healing can take time, especially for chronic situations. Healing is rarely linear and resolution is almost never overnight. It is important to give the body time and space to heal at it's own safe pace, remaining consistent and observant. While I am happy to answer general questions about my daughter's recovery if we have time as I know there is often curiosity, each person is different and the suggestions I make for you are tailored to your situation.

Once you have booked and paid for your session, open the health history template and follow the instructions on the form.
