Beverley has an Advanced Diploma of Applied Science (Naturopathy) from the Perth Academy of Natural Therapies. Upon graduation she received awards for excellence in Herbal Medicine and in Nutritional Prescribing. She is a member of the National Herbalists Association of Australia and the Australian Natural Therapists Association, and is a registered provider for private health fund rebates.
As a consulting Naturopath Beverley uses her experience and expertise to assist families and individuals find effective ways of meeting health challenges and optimising their wellbeing by using foods and medicines that support the self-healing capacity of the body, thereby minimizing the use of potentially harmful pharmacological medicines.
Beverley enjoys treating infants, children and adults of all ages. Conditions treated range from acute (colds, coughs, throat infections, hayfever and skin complaints) to more chronic conditions including hormonal imbalances such as period problems, thyroid imbalance, menopause; allergies; ear infections; sinusitis; asthma; digestive pain and discomfort including constipation and diarrhoea; liver and gallbladder disorders; urinary tract infection; arthritis; cardiovascular disorders including problems with blood pressure and cholesterol; skin conditions; anxiety, headache and fatigue.
Beverley is committed to helping her patients optimise their ongoing health and wellbeing through education, motivation and empowerment, and this is a strong focus of her practice.
All Naturopathic health assessments include fingernail, tongue and iris (iridology) diagnosis, plus advice on realistic and achievable dietary and lifestyle changes. These changes form the basis of a strong emphasis on preventative health care. Naturopathic treatment may include prescription of herbal and homeopathic medicines and nutritional supplements as appropriate for each individual patient.
Flower and shell essences are often used to complement a prescription as these enhance emotional health and wellbeing, enabling patients to optimise their self-healing ability and achieve the most out of life. Physical health is influenced by our way of thinking, our feelings and our emotions. Flower and shell essences are used to help overcome worries and fears and negative feelings that may lead to physical illness and disease or an inability to achieve our full potential.
Reflexology treatments release stress and tension held in the body, enabling a return to balance.
Beverley consults at the Clinic by appointment on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and welcomes the opportunity to help you get more out of life by improving your overall health and wellbeing.
