Meridian Naturopathic & Counselling Services

Therapies Available:

  • Herbal Medicine: Our formulas are individually tailored to your needs thereby yielding the best possible outcome from the treatment. The raw materials of the herbs have been stringently tested for purity and plant identification and are all practitioner only products.

  • Dietary Management and Nutritional support: Specific nutrient imbalances or deficiencies are addressed and supplemented accordingly.
    Appropriate nutritional protocols are suggested following your naturopathic and iridology assessments.

    Do you experience digestive pain, bloating, constipation? Biocompatibility and Food Sensitivity testing can provide insights as to the cause of these symptoms.

  • Mindfulness: You can only change that which you are first aware of. Mindfulness is a powerful, evidenced based practise that can significantly alter how you experience the daily stresses of life. Freeing yourself from emotional ruts and opening up to new ways of thinking, feeling and being.

  • Counselling: Working with all ages I've had broad experience in a number of different clinical settings as a Counsellor. I have a special interest in Mind-Body connections and Mental Health, and how this can impact on the quality of your life.

    Do you suffer from.....
    Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Phobias, Trauma, Depression, Stress or Insomnia? You can learn to develop the durability to adapt to your daily challenges.

  • Homeopathy & Flower Essences: We use a variety of individualised and pre-blended homeopathic remedies, which are gentle safe and effective at balancing the body and emotions.

  • Iridology: Iris Photos are taken and used to form part of the assessment. Iridology helps us to identify body systems that may require support. We call these your nurture points. The Iris can be likened to a blue print of the body including emotional influences.

  • Pranic and Energy Healing: These techniques are used to clear, rebalance and energise the energy field and chakra centers of the body. Our energy centers (chakras) control our physical, emotional, and mental functions. Some of the symptoms that may benefit include: Anxiety and Stress, Headaches, Addictions, Phobias. Therapy is often experienced as warming, relaxing, energising and enlightening. Pranic Healing and energy work is well complemented by the appropriate prescribing of homeopathic or individualised flower essence remedies.
