Welcome

Welcome to Essence online clinic. I am here to help inspire, educate, encourage and assist you and your goals through natural medicine. Utilising herbal, homeopathic, nutritional, bio-puncture and counselling modalities to help support, nourish and rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit.

I bring my skills and knowledge to clinic as a:

  •  Medical herbalist with a background in medicinal herb cultivation, botanical science and post-graduate qualifications in Health Science and herbal medicine.
  •  Bio-puncture practitioner specialising in pain, injuries (acute and chronic), as well scarring and trauma.
  • Counsellor, assisting with lifestyle, goals, blockages and trauma. For this i have the assistance of reflective counselling, homeopathy, flower remedies and meditation/relaxation/mindfulness techniques.

My clinic is situated in the beautiful coastal town of Caloundra, Sunshine coast, Queensland, Australia. From a young age I recognised the importance of self-healing, wellbeing and a higher consciousness, enabling insights and acknowledgement of self-development. My journey includes a background of psychiatric welfare, counselling and crisis work. I have also lived on a rural community, raising 2 children, building and farming with permaculture principles, whilst being aware of naturopathic and self-healing attributes. As a single mum, I trained and worked as massage therapist, studied Theosophical teachings and specialised in counselling, healing and spiritual principles. After completing my Bachelor of Naturopathy at Southern Cross University, I undertook Post graduate studies in Herbal Medicine, working in pharmacy and in clinical practice. Presently, I am enjoying my role in a busy clinic in Caloundra and helping out with my family when possible.
