Alex is an Australian Naturopath whose areas of expertise include clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). She is a member of both the Australian Naturopathic Association and Australian Traditional Medicine Society. She offers individualised treatment plans for adults and children, covering a broad range of health issues:

  • Digestive disorders and food sensitivities
  • Allergies and skin disorders
  • Immune deficiencies
  • Weight loss
  • Stress, sleep issues, anxiety, panic attacks, and mood imbalances
  • Women’s health, including hormonal issues, fertility, endometriosis, fibroids and PCOS

Alex is keen to find the root causes of her patients’ health conditions and treats each of them in a gentle and holistic way. “I have always believed that everyone possesses the innate ability to heal themselves, and my job as a Naturopath is to identify and help remove the factors preventing this from happening,” explains Alex. “Essentially, helping to re-ignite your body’s own flame so that you can feel vital and strong again.”

Her strong interest in natural medicine began in London over 15 years ago, when she experienced how transformational a change in diet and lifestyle could be to treat her own health conditions. By removing certain items in her diet and adding targeted nutritional support, she was able to heal a myriad of digestive and immune issues she had been battling for years. This cemented a love for natural medicine and cultivated her yearning to help others by becoming a Naturopath.

“I feel so blessed to be working in this profession. I truly love helping others find and connect to their own vitality and inner healing,” says Alex, who completed her degree in Naturopathy from Nature Care College in Sydney, Australia, and also received clinical training under Dr Benita Perch (ND) and Dr Ardyce Yik (ND) at IMI.

Alex especially enjoys working with families. Having worked for many years in the high pressured environment of the financial sector whilst balancing a family and being a mum, she understands first-hand the impact that stress can have on an individual and the family as a whole. She believes in a balanced approach to life, nurturing a love for food and cooking with her clients. She is passionate in guiding parents on how to create simplicity and balance; provide clever, simple ways to feed their family nutritious and delicious meals and sharing tools to help combat stressors arising in daily life.
