I am a Western Medical Herbalist who has been practicing in Victoria for 12 years, and last year I registered as a Hypnotherapist. I am strongly grounded in natural nutrition, supplement therapy, and of course the expert application of Herbal Remedies.

As a Hypnotherapist I help those with mood disorders such as anxiety, panic, depression, and anger.
