Practical Naturopathy, Herbal Medicine and Energy healing
Natural Health Specialist
Hi, I'm excited to help you find your way to true wellness.
I am a qualified Naturopath, Medical Herbalist and Kinesiologist. I also have qualfications in reiki and access consciousness bars. Along with my previous experience as a nurse and midwife, I hope you can get a feel for how I try to create a "whole"istic approach to healing.
I am passionate and dedicated to the philosophy of natural healing. We all have the innate ability to heal ourselves, through nature and our connectedness to it, we just need to create the right environment for this to happen within us.
I have always known I was born to help people. I knew this from a very young age. So the obvious thing to me when I left school was to become a nurse. That seemed the most effective way to start to live my vocation. There has been a natural progression, over many decades, of unwavering and growing interest in health and wellness which has led me to my current approach of healing and helping people. My own personal journey of a challenging health condition, and subsequent dismay with how conventional medicine was not able to help me, influenced greatly the search for my own healing. I experienced such profound benefits through using natural medicine to restore my health and wellbeing, I was inspired to study naturopathy and expand my knowledge and skills so that I could continue to help others in the same way.
I am in awe every single day of the wonder of nature, of the human body, of the universe, of everything! And our connection to it all. This drives me on my never-ending quest for knowledge and understanding of the healing process, and applying what I learn to help you achieve true wellness. My work remains current and relevant, with my passion and dedication to the latest research and information pertaining to Natural Medicine.
The re-branding of my business name to "Soul Botanica" was born from the philosophy that we are part of, yet apart of nature. The innate ability of the body to heal itself, provided there is harmony between body mind and soul, as well as harmony between man nature and the environment, form the roots by which this philosophy is grounded. My vision is to create a space for information, knowledge, healing, inspiration and a deep spiritual understanding of wellness.
