Kids Appointments

Chose me as your naturopath because I have experience and expertise in treating children using natural medicine.  Working with kids is a specialised field.  It is unlike adult care as kids are not just small adults. I understand that they have unique health requirements and need medicine's that cater to their unique needs, taste preferences and health problems.

Consultation length

First consults are for 60 minutes

Return consults are for 45 minutes

Long consults are for 45 minutes and are booked when it has been 6 months or longer since your child's last appointment or if their health history is particularly detailed.

Please allow at least 15 minutes at the end of the consultation for medicines to be dispensed.

Pathology testing

Sometimes it is appropriate to obtain further information before a treatment plan can be recommended.  If I think further testing might be required for your child, I will discuss what your options are and provide you with the appropriate information for you to make an informed choice.

Dispensary of medicines

Naturopaths use a wide range of medicines and within my clinic room I have a medicine dispensary from which I may recommend medicines for your child. I may also recommend you purchase medicines from a Pharmacy.

The herbal, nutritional or homeopathic medicines I prescribe have all been chosen based on being of the highest quality, having a great safety profile, economical and easy to use for parents and kids.

All medicines prescribed are at an additional cost and not included within the consultation price.

Cancellation policy

My goal is to provide quality health care in a timely manner. As such, I have an appointment cancellation policy. This policy enables me to better utilise available appointments for my patients in need of my services. Please be courteous and notify me by phone or email if you are unable to attend an appointment at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment.  I will then be able to allocate this time to someone else. Please note that if you miss an appointment or reschedule inside the 24 hours the full consultation fee will be charged.

Payment for consultation and medicines

Naturopathic appointments are often claimable on your private health insurance.

EFTPOS and credit card are accepted payments in clinic via a Westpac card reader.
