We aim to improve your health as you work alongside a team helping you along the way. This has been proven world wide as the best way to gain results in health care and outcomes.
Often healthcare services are so fast and busy they fall short on providing the support patients need to follow their treatment plan after leaving the clinic. This unfortunately impacts the likelihood of success and is why so many people will see little improvement in their health.
In a typical setting, you’ll see a practitioner, then be left to your own devices to take action on your treatment plan. As soon as you leave the clinic, you’ll likely feel overwhelmed with the changes you need to make and may have already forgotten some!
Even with the best of attempts, you’ll likely encounter obstacles that, without any support or guidance, will cause you to give up not long after you begin.

Mindset & Breaking
We often are unaware of what is holding us back in our health and recovery from illness. Psychotherapy helps you to explore and understand your inner world in a deeper way. This is beneficial where long-standing problems originating in your past, persistently disrupt your life, for example through recurring depression or anxiety, feelings of worthlessness, difficulties in sustaining positive relationships or addictive behaviours with eating or substance abuse.
There is clear evidence that chronic illness sits within the body due to past trauma and emotional pain.
Psychotherapy & hypnotherapy supports healing and change at a fundamental level allowing you to lead a satisfying and fulfilling life.
Your body is unique. So are your experiences, environments, genetics, eating and lifestyle habits. It makes sense then, that understanding and treating your health concerns requires individualised investigation that considers the whole picture, comprehensive testing that is most often not offered in a normal medical setting.
We look deeper and test to find the root of your health challenges
Continued Support &
Working with a coach is a great way to help get your health back on track. Most people know what they should be doing to lead a healthy life, they just don't know how to break the bad habits that prevent them from getting there". It's all about transforming their mindset - a person's assumptions, habits, beliefs, training while learning to understand their unconscious payoffs/rewards for not changing.
someone may have been told to make changes in their lifestyle for health reasons but drop back to their usual way of being, or have habits of self sabotage. Our Coach is Clinically trained in hypnosis and NLP so can help you get to the bottom of those unconscious barriers holding you back! Committing to working with a coach can bring all this into conscious awareness, and supports that person to open an awareness to widen their comfort zone, step by step, until a new mindset becomes the 'new normal'.
Our Health Coach can coach and mentor you to a whole new level of mindset & guide you every step of the way with your health and healing journey.

Without support & coaching
With support & coaching
Initial enthusiasm decreases with a tendency to ‘give up’ after 2-3 weeks;
Short-lived attempts because of a change in symptoms, obstacles, or not knowing how to implement changes;
Coming back to see your practitioner with limited progress as you forgot to do tests or didn’t know how to do them, or stopped taking supplements because you ran out, had a reaction or the dose wasn’t working;
Reaching out to your practitioner with questions but not hearing back from them (they’re too busy!);
Feeling uninspired and reliant on others to help you;
Overwhelm, confusion, and frustration - stress;
Limited health outcomes and money wasted.
Barriers identified and strategies created to stay on track;
All questions answered - how to manage symptom changes, supplement adjustments, food options for diet changes;
Reporting back to your practitioner with progress so sessions are spent on going forward vs going over what wasn’t done;
A sense of having people on your team who care and ‘have your back’;
Communicating with your practitioner through your health coach so you’re always making informed decisions;
Feeling empowered by having your health back in your hands;
Motivation, clarity, and ease;
Why do we take this approach?
Chronic disease is the leading cause of death, illness and disability in Australia. In 2014/15, 50% of Australians had at least one prominent chronic disease, illness, fatigue or unexplained weight gain.
Our current and historical approaches to healthcare are not stemming this tide. The key feature of most chronic disease is lifestyle, not a pathogen. Simply knowing what constitutes a healthy diet or adequate exercise, is not sufficient. The prevention, treatment and reversal of chronic disease therefore requires evidence based supported behavioural change and this has not been the mainstay of health and medical care.
To combat escalating illness and disease in our community, we realise that we need health and medical practitioners equipped with skills to engage patients in making sustained health behaviour change. The evidence-based practice of ongoing support, coaching and accountability, when combined with the principles of Lifestyle Medicine, is a magic formula in helping this challenge.
‘Functional medicine is a map, it’s a GPS system, a way of navigating through the landscape of an illness. It’s the medicine that connects the dots between all the things that are going wrong in our biology.’
A small taste of what is included
Become the Best Version Of Yourself
Your practitioner will explore the cause and triggers of your health issues. We’ll go beyond the standard tests and generic treatments to get to the bottom of your health problems and provide you with long-term solutions. With access to functional testing, your practitioner can investigate:
Digestive function and nutrient absorption
Inflammation, IBD, SIBO or leaky gut
We will test pathogens, nutritional status, food reactivity, hormones, cardiovascular markers, heavy metals, environmental toxins, DNA wellbeing test, and more.
We’ll work out the best way to solve your health concerns for you, and only you. We do this by combining scientific research with your health insights to deliver a personalised healthcare protocol.
Every session we will talk through a list of actionable steps that are unique to you and your recovery as well as downloadable, meditations, hypnotherapy and action sheets unique to you
We will work through a customised, micro-step program of daily self-care, nourishment, lifestyle and stress reduction practices to support your mind and body into whole balanced body alignment. This may include a complete nutrition overhaul, recommended supplements and or additional testing as well as breaking down any barriers you may have that are preventing you form your healing.
Together we will address and release what no longer aligns with your needs and wants, and create healthy mindsets, behaviours and habits to support your best self, now and in your future.
We are with you every step of the way!
Healing takes time. And we’ll be there with you and guiding you while you do it.
Other aspects of your health that we may focus on:
Poor diet or nutrition
Chronic stress and anxiety
Poor or inadequate sleep
Lack of connection to family, friends, community
Loss of culture and identity
And many more influences of society and environment
You get fortnightly sessions with your functional medicine practitioner AND ongoing results-focused health coaching, behaviour change and support bi-weekly for the duration of the program
When you, your Integrative medicine practitioner, and dedicated health coach all work together towards the one objective - getting you better - you’re more likely to succeed.
While your practitioner prescribes and monitors your treatment, your health coach will ensure you remain focused, accountable, and on track to meet your health goals. It’s a winning formula. And it’s what makes this formula so different to other healthcare systems in the area.
All of this and so much more all jam packed into and intensive HEALTH JOURNEY that is UNIQUE TO YOU, we will support you, guide you and help you step into a future of health and wellness that you never thought possible.
