Hello and welcome to my page!
I’m Tanya, a qualified Naturopath with over 11 years experience, a wife to my supportive husband and mother to my two boys; Luke and Oliver, ages 9 and 4!.
As a Naturopath, I believe in practicing what I teach and I always strive to live a balanced life, day to day. From my knowledge and experience, I help to support women, children & families attain wellness and move closer towards their picture of good health.
Over the years as a practicing Naturopath I have gained invaluable experience from working in varied roles. This includes roles in pharmacy, corporate health, health foods and private consulting. I am fortunate to be able to work in such a diverse way in the last 11 years, fuelling my passion in the health and wellness industry.
In addition to being a qualified Naturopath, I have also attained additional qualifications in massage and advanced massage techniques such as deep tissue, sports massage and reflexology. I am also a certified infant massage instructor, which has given me the pleasure to teach new parents on how to massage their babies. In 2016 I completed the introduction to Kinesiology at the O’Neill Kinesiology College. Most recently, in 2017 I received my certificate in Reiki I and will be offering my clients energy healing in the near future. I am continually learning new methods and techniques to support my clients towards health and wellness.

Being a time poor mum and small business owner myself, I know how difficult it can be to look after your health. What I love most about my job is that I can help you to make small achievable changes, in yours and your family’s day-to-day life. I can offer you support in implementing change, make suggestions and provide resources to make your journey as easy as possible. This will help you to make sustainable long term changes, in turn giving you health benefits that you will experience over a life time (No fad or extreme changes are necessary!).
In my spare time I enjoy reconnecting with what it is that inspires me and helps me to feel grounded and balanced. I love immersing myself in a good book, listening to health pod casts, reading wellness blogs, yoga, meditation, getting a massage or facial, pottering around the house and garden, visiting a new healthy café, getting out in nature…or id settle for a nap one of these days too! I find that living in this busy modern life, with a very long to-do-list, there is the greater need and importance to make the time to take care of yourself!
