About psychotherapy & integrative Naturopathy

A holistic approach to health and wellness

Psychotherapy does not do away with stressful events, but it gives you the power to cope in a healthy way. It can also help you understand yourself.  Integrative naturopathy is a holistic approach to health and wellness based on the principle that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself given the right circumstances and using gentle therapeutic techniques encompassing herbal remedies, dietary adjustments, lifestyle changes and counselling. This dual approach ensures the mind and body are supported during the healing process.

There is a strong focus on evidence based medicine and science underpinning this practice. This means that some aspects of naturopathy, such as homeopathy or flower essences, are not used or recommended. Instead, there is a higher priority placed on herbal medicine, lifestyle adjustments, dietary changes and psychological health.


Where would you like to start?


Where the mind is strong and healthy, the body is better able to follow.  Preparing for life changes, assistance coping with previous events or even managing day to day stress can all improve your mental and physical health.

Learning to handle stress in healthy ways is very important. Fortunately, it is easy to learn simple techniques that help. These include recognising and changing the behaviours that contribute to stress, as well as techniques for reducing stress once it has occurred.


Integrative medicine is a healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person (body, mind & spirit), including all aspects of lifestyle.

It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and complementary.  There is a strong focus on open communication between all members of a care team.


A doula is a person trained and experienced in childbirth who provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to a woman during labor, birth and the immediate postpartum period.

A doula traditionally performs no clinical tasks, but focuses on supporting you in every way required to ensure a birth is as smooth as possible.
