Julia is a qualified naturopath, nutritionist and personal trainer. After completing a BSc in Commerce at the University of London, Julia went on to complete a Certificate III & IV in Personal Training which has seen her working as a Personal Trainer since 2009. To further her capacity to optimise the health of her patients, Julia has since completed a BHSc in Naturopathy from Laureate University and is a registered naturopathic practitioner with the Australian Naturopathic Practitioners Association.
Underpinning Julia’s practice is the basic understanding that all illness must have a cause and for health to be restored and optimised the cause or causes of the illness must be identified and removed. This requires an appreciation of the intricate interplay of physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, social, familial and occupational factors that can contribute to disease. Julia views the body as an interconnected whole and appreciates that its connections are essential in treating and preventing disease.
Julia firmly upholds the importance of empowering her patients to take responsibility for their own health. She seeks to educate her patients and actively involve them in their own health decisions, ultimately paving the way for sustainable health improvements. Through guiding, supporting, listening to and working with her patients, Julia develops effective treatment plans that address the underlying cause of health problems. This allows for complete resolution of health conditions and maximises long-term health outcomes.
Julia is committed to the successful integration of natural and conventional medicines to maximise patient outcomes. She works in collaboration with a network of doctors, Chinese Medicine Practitioners, psychologists, osteopaths, myotherapists, physiotherapists, kinesiologists and midwives to ensure optimal patient care.
