How can Kathryn help you?
Kathryn has an individualised and evidence-based approach to her treatment plans. She takes into consideration the client’s unique set of circumstances including health history, dietary history, family, and lifestyle. She looks at how the client’s body is responding to their current dietary intake/lifestyle, assesses any insufficiencies, and investigates the root causes
of any adverse reactions.
Kathryn will work with you at your pace, supporting you with recommendations specific to you and your circumstances. Instead of fad diets and quick fixes, Kathryn aims to identify and treat the underlying causes of your health concerns. This helps to equip and empower you towards long-term changes that you can sustain.
She is experienced in working with presentations of Autism and ADHD and has enjoyed helping her clients to thrive on nutritious meals, have a positive perspective towards food and a positive relationship with food. She enjoys equipping families with the tools and knowledge to build healthy eating habits in their home.
What services does Kathryn provide?
Kathryn provides Nutritional consultations in person, via telehealth or phone call. Your initial appointment will be a comprehensive 60 minute assessment. Review consultations are 30 minutes or 45 minutes in duration.
Every treatment plan is created specifically for you, so the plans will vary from appointment to appointment, and person to person. She can include prescriptive dietary advice, recipes, lifestyle changes (this could relate to types of exercise, sleep hygiene, stress reduction mechanisms, etc), and supplements to support your treatment.
A complimentary Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) scan can also be included in your Initial Consultation with Kathryn. If you are interested in comparing your initial scan results to results at future appointments, BIA Scans can be added on to your follow-up consultations for an additional fee per scan.
Kathryn holds a Bachelor Degree of Health Science: Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine from Endeavour College of Natural Health in Sydney, and an Advanced Diploma of Nutritional Medicine from the Australian Institute of Applied Sciences (AIAS).
She is a practising member of the Australian Natural Therapies Association (ANTA) and can see clients who are Self-funded, are Self-Managed or Plan-Managed through NDIS, or who have Nutrition covered in their Private Health Fund.
When she is not in the clinic, Kathryn loves to spend time with her husband, family, and friends. She is always up for an adventure and loves being out and about in nature. Kathryn loves the ocean, so she is generally out surfing or kitesurfing on the weekends.
