5 reasons why seeing a Nutritionist just got easier

Seeing a Nutritionist is an investment. It's an investment of time, it becomes an investment in understanding your capabilities, your body, your health, and it's a financial investment. Because seeing a Nutritionist isn't a one off kind of relationship. And it's absolutely not a transactional relationship.


As a Nutritionist, university trained, Allied Health Professional, complementary health practitioner and kind and caring human, I myself invest so much of my own time, consideration, empathy and resources into you, my clients. I 100 per cent want to see my clients articulate their health goals, and get to a point where they not only reach those goals, but make those goals form part of their sustainable everyday - consistently shaping, supporting and elevating their health. It basically becomes a symbiotic investment. And let me just add, I acknowledge it's not always straight forward. There are inevitably bumps in the road, and having a complementary health practitioner by your side is your personal cheerleader to help you navigate those.


So how did investing in a Nutritionist just get easier?


• Firstly, as a Certified Practicing Nutritionist, I boast the ability to provide private health care rebates, so you can claim back funds on our time together.

• As an Allied Health Professional, I can provide NDIS services in building capacity in nutritional planning for self-managed and plan managed billing options.

• My qualifications mean I am qualified to provide prescriptions for practitioner only nutritional supplements in therapeutic doses for therapeutic reasons ie chronic disease, illness, symptoms.

• My qualifications also mean I also offer very convenient telehealth appointments during normal and after hours, and I discount them by 20%. Making it easier to juggle work, kids, activities and travel.

• And finally, because I have a family myself, I offer before and after hours face to face consultations at a holistic location with ample parking and convenience.


Did you know...?

Nutritionists are able to order, decipher and provide treatment (based on results) of pathology; blood, urine and fecal. We can do this in collaboration with your GP and specialist health professional.


And just because I love you my clients and my community, I thought I would share a winter warmer recipe packed full of goodness, fibre, whole food, flavour and warmth. Throw this one on the stove and let me know how much you enjoyed it.
