Who Am I?
My name is Zoe and for as long as I can remember I have been a teacher. From 'teaching' (read: bossing) my little sister and cousin around in our tree top school, to actually becoming an early childhood teacher in primary school . I have also been interested in natural products and helping the environment since my late teenage years. My mum likes to remind me of the hassle I was in the Supermarket telling her, "NO! you can't buy that it has palm oil in it, you will kill the orangutans!" as a teenager. Yet my passion has always been food. As I have delved deeper into natural living, I have migrated more and more to a traditional, wholefoods way of eating. Eating with the seasons, no processing, just real natural whole food.
After having my son in 2014, I couldn't see myself going back to teaching primary school. So, with the support of my wonderful husband, I decided to join together my passions of teaching, natural living and nutritious food by studying naturopathy.
My aim to is to empower my clients with individualised knowledge and understanding of their unique health status. I want my clients to leave me feeling like they are in control of their own health journey; I am a guide, not a dictator. I believe in working on multiple levels of health - mind, body and spirit, with my healing focus being on food and thought first (before using supplements and herbs).
I also love using Naturopathic Emotional Release (NER) to help my clients release the emotional blocks that are sabotaging their health journey. I first came across this tool in it's original form of Neuro Emotional Technique (NET). My amazing NET practitioner helped me overcome the emotional blocks I had after the birth of my first son and it is a technique I have wanted to put in to my naturopathic practice ever since. Another wonderful Naturopath had the same positive experience with NET and she transformed it in to a naturopathic tool called NER, which I have now trained in and am so excited to be able to use to help my clients.
I look forward to sharing my knowledge and guiding you on your healing journey,
