Meridian Naturopathic & Counselling Services

Therapies Available:

    • Herbal Medicine: Our formulas are individually tailored to your needs. 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 appointment.

      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, adolescents, parenting, individual and family sessions. As a qualified Mental Health Practitioner, I have a special interest in the Mind-Body connection and how this can impact on the quality of your life. You can learn to develop the skills to adapt to your daily challenges. Methods include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness.
    • Homeopathy & Flower Essences: We use a variety of individualised and pre-blended homeopathic remedies to balance the body and emotions.
    • Iridology: Iris Photos are taken during the iridology session. 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. 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.
