About Me and My Practice
Welcome to Flourish...your healthy medical choice.
I set up Flourish Naturopathy in 2006 here in Dunedin after practising in Sydney for a number of years. I now run two clinics and work as a natural medicine GP, working with all manner of health concerns across all age groups.
I believe that the single most important thing in achieving good health is addressing the cause of illness wherever possible. It is often the detail that sheds light on this, so I will always take a thorough case history, and am always interested in your story.
An appointment with me may help you with: Allergies, Cholesterol, Children's health, Diabetes, Digestive problems, Energy/fatigue, Fertility/pregnancy, High blood pressure, Injury recovery, Immune support, Joint/muscle problems, Memory/Concentration, Menstrual health issues, Respiratory conditions, Skin health, Sleep issues, Stress management, Weight loss and any other health issue.
I work with herbal medicines, nutritional supplements, and diet and lifestyle.
As a patient of my clinic you will also have access to: Food allergy testing, Iridology, Saliva hormone testing, Hair mineral analysis, Adrenal function tests, Thyroid testing, Nutritional assessments, Zinc testing, pH assessments, Gastro-intestinal testing and much more. There is also a full time GP at the Green Island clinic for pathology testing, if necessary.
I am committed to maintaining a high professional standard in my practice, and dedicate regular time to research and education. I also provide monthly emails to my patients on the latest developments in the natural health industry.

I have worked extensively in the integrated medicine industry, working with pharmacists, GPs, and natural health professionals, both in New Zealand and Australia. Facilitating better knowledge sharing and integration is one of my passions. I am particularly interested in building good working relationships with other health professionals interested in the natural health model, with the aim of better health outcomes for our patients.
I am also committed to education, and as such have developed a series of seminars and health programmes that are available to local businesses and other interested groups. I also run regular seminars for my patients, and dedicate one day per week to research.
I had over twelve years experience in the business and finance sector prior to my naturopathic training (NZ, Australia, England). I have worked for companies in Australia delivering health programmes to business, running integrated medicine centres, and developing nutritional supplements. Natural medicine is my passion!
