  • Stress and fatigue
  • Anxiety and mood disorders
  • Poor immune function and recurrent infections
  • Menstrual irregularities and hormonal complaints
  • Pregnancy and postpartum care
  • Gastrointestinal health and digestive upsets
  • Musculoskeletal conditions such as neck and shoulder pain, tension headaches, lower back pain and arthritis


Kathleen also works as an educator and teaches in the naturopathy, nutrition and herbal medicine programs at the Australasian College of Natural Therapies and Endeavour College of Natural Health. She has run professional workshops for midwives, nurses and lactation consultants on naturopathic pregnancy and postpartum care. And she used to appear regularly on the health program at Woodford Folk Festival.

Originally from Queensland, Kathleen relocated to Sydney with her husband several years ago, and they welcomed their daughter in 2014. Outside of clinic, she most enjoys being with her family, connecting with friends, good food, reading, writing, travelling, practicing yoga and spending time outdoors (preferably barefoot).
