I studied naturopathy at the Southern School of Natural Therapies back in the early 2000’s. Naturopathy had taken me by surprise in the 90’s when I was working in a fast pace investment banking firm and suffering from chronic bad health. A colleague suggested I see her naturopath, Gill Stannard, who was a well known and highly skilled traditional naturopath using herbs, diet and lifestyle changes to support her CBD based clientele. From my very first session with Gill it was a total mindset reboot and metamorphous. Once I had recovered my health I went to live in the UK for a number of years. In London herbs and nutrients are widely available to the general public and I started treating myself and discovered a love for the process of understanding the causes of ill health and the path to wellness.
Upon returning to Melbourne I started my studies and over the next 20 years I deepened both my commitment to health and my understanding of what keeps us unwell. Having gone through my own health transformation, at times struggling every step of the way, has given me a deep well of compassion. And a tool box full of ways to overcome self-reluctance, forgetfulness, yucky tastes, busy lives, overwhelm and general collapse. You are always only one step away from your path to health. I don’t just say this, I know it because I live it.
