About me

I’m a clinical naturopath and occasional writer, based in Sydney, where I practice out of a large integrative medicine clinic.

Apart from practice, I’m involved in industry education: teaching natural medicine students and presenting courses for midwives, nurses and lactation consultants on naturopathic pregnancy and postpartum care. I also work with community and corporate healthcare programs, and can be seen most years speaking at the Woodford Folk Festival.

I occasionally write for media publications on the topics of health and wellbeing, but now most of my published work is in academic health journals and clinical texts. I also blog here, obviously.

In clinic I focus on optimising day-to-day living through diet, lifestyle and herbal therapy. I hold a particular interest in working with the health of new parents, infants and children; as I am passionate about creating healthy foundations for our next generation. However, I love working with people from all walks of life, helping them institute changes that can become life-long health habits.

Outside of clinic, the things I enjoy most are: spending time with my husband & friends, reading, writing, travelling, daydreaming, bad puns, practicing yoga and handstands. I also really love being outside, whether that’s sitting in the sunshine reading the paper, bushwalking or swimming… I dig it all.

  1. Thanks for following my blog, Kathleen! Nice to meet you!

  2. Thanks for reblogging my post! I too have an interest in children and their families. I try to present healthy eating messages through stories that with luck will hold the interest of young people long enough to maybe get them interested in the food they put into their bodies.

  3. That’s funny 🙂 And here I was feeling chuffed that you might have thought the material was a match for your own practice. I did notice, though, that you encourage no grains at all – a place I’m not entirely ready to go yet… so many choices these days!
