I practice in Pyrmont from Monday to Thursday and Sydney CBD on Fridays, with appointments available between 7.30am and 6pm. I also do home visits throughout Sydney, by appointment, with MamaCare Health Services.
On Tuesday mornings, I run a free drop-in baby clinic in Pyrmont from 9am – 10.30am. More detailed information on that here, but all local parents are welcome to come in and have babies/children weighed and checked. I can also answer quick questions on natural health… and we always have herbal tea on offer while you wait.
If you have any questions about seeing me in clinic or how I may be able to help you, please call to schedule and appointment or send me a message via the website contact form and I will get back in touch with you directly.

What happens during a consultation?
If you haven’t seen a naturopath before, prepare for lots of questions and an opportunity to talk! During the consultation, I’ll spend time taking a thorough health history and reviewing any recent pathology or medical testing. I’ll work out a plan that suits you and aims to improve your specific health needs. This will always involve diet and lifestyle advice, and may also include herbal and/or nutritional supplementation.
In an acupuncture treatment, I will insert very fine needles into precise points on the body to benefit your health. Some people are afraid of needles, but contrary to their fears, needle insertion shouldn’t be painful or uncomfortable; though it’s not uncommon to feel a heaviness or distending sensation in the body, during a treatment. Usually, treatments are very relaxing… and lots of people find themselves having a nap while they’re on the table! Depending on your needs, I may also incorporate cupping, guasha or massage into your treatment, in order to provide the maximum benefit.
I may recommend we schedule regular clinic appointments, particularly at the beginning of treatment, or you may be someone that doesn’t require follow up for some months. Everyone is different.
Between clinic appointments I am always happy to provide support via phone and email. However, for more involved enquiries or significant health developments, I recommend coming into the clinic.
Skype and phone consultations are available for existing patients only.
Consultation Cost and Health Fund Rebates
Please note, I have a 24 hour cancellation policy.
The full consultation fee will be charged if an appointment is missed or cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice.
You may be able to claim a portion of the cost of your consultation through private health – please check with your fund and level of cover to determine eligibility. Unfortunately, HCF does not provide a rebate for acupuncture treatment, but all other health funds do. From 1st April 2019, no health funds will provide a rebate for naturopathy (we are lobbying to have this changed!)
Consultation fees range from $80 to $170 for clinical appointments and $200 for home visits. Please get in touch via the website contact form or call the clinic directly for a full schedule of fees.
Pensioner, child and concession card holder discounts are available.
Appointments are usually 30 – 60 minutes duration, including acupuncture treatment.
