Here's the most common conditions and treatments I recommend.
These are the major treatment areas I work in; however not everyone’s problem fits into a neat named box! if your particular problem isn’t on this page please contact me anyway and let’s talk.
Anything that ails your digestive system from the end that you put your food in right to the other end, where the end product come out, is what I’d like to help you with. Your liver, pancreas and gall bladder ailments too.
In a nutshell, we’ll sit down together to talk over what has brought you to the clinic. I’ll ask you some pretty pointed questions about your digestive function, about your diet, and I’d like to know about the strategies you’ve tried already. My holistic approach means we’ll check what’s happening in all your other body systems too, and review how much your emotions, or stress, could be contributing to your gut problem.
Once we have an understanding of what has caused your gut problems I’ll reach into my toolbox for what is going to help you get better. Sometimes we will need to do functional stool testing, sometimes that’s not necessary. Diet changes, herbs, homoeopathic remedies or supplements and lifestyle changes will be used.
Although what’s happening in your gut isn’t all in your mind, there is a strong neurotransmitter connection between the gut and your grey matter – your emotions matter.
Some of the named gut conditions I treat include:
The word ‘complex’ is an understatement when it comes to assessing what’s happening in your endocrine system, so a holistic approach to assessment and treatment is what I offer. When one part of your endocrine system falls over (like your menstrual cycle) then often other parts are affected too (like your thyroid). Also, major life events in a woman’s life (like childbirth) can bring on huge shifts in your endocrine system.
We will work together to ascertain when your hormone or thyroid problems started, and then use herbs, homoeopathic remedies and nutritional supplements, as well as diet and lifestyle of course.
Some of the named conditions and life stages I treat include:
As your symptoms ease and your health improves, we will adjust your treatment. That’s why returning for follow up consultations is so important.
What does ‘counselling’ mean to you? We all have preconceived ideas of what this term entails. Some of it learnt from the movies, some from direct experiences, some from what our friends or family have related.
All counsellors practice in their own unique way. The rapport we have in talking together is actually one of the most important elements that will help you achieve what you want from counselling. In terms of treatment types, I practice in person-centered therapies. Your treatment process is tailored just for you.
I especially like to work with burnout.
