Hi, my name is Anneke, I am a qualified Naturopath (BHSc in Naturopathy) and I have several other qualifications in animal health and wellbeing. I am a perpetual student, always finding new ways to help my clients improve their health and wellbeing. You can rest assured that the wellbeing of those who seek my help are always my number one focus, if I don’t have the answers, I will find them, or refer onto someone better suited, for that particular problem.
How did I get here? I hold a Masters degree in Geography and Environmental Management, so I have always been a bit of a greenie (not radical, just aware that we need to love and protect our planet and those upon it) and focused on sustainability. I was introduced to natural medicine in 2001, with aromatherapy oils and naturopathy, which I used when my children needed help. My passion was ignited in 2009, when I met an amazing holistic vet, who healed my horse with the use of Acupuncture and herbs. From that day on, I slowly started my journey to where I am now. I feel truly blessed be able to provide answers / help, where others have shut doors. The more I delve into the world of natural medicine and the way were are meant to co-exist with the natural world, along with those around us, the more I become passionate about my journey and calling on this earth.
I base my practice on my scientific background, but I accept that there are many, many things that science do not have the answer for yet. Traditional knowledge of herbs and energy healing is as much part of my toolkit, as is my scientific knowledge of the body and how herbs and supplements interact with it. Nature is a wonderful teacher and the field of quantum healing is increasing every day.
Always here to help, always here to support.
My peace and love be with you all, on your life journey, keep well!

I strive to help you and your pet find a solution to health issues, but I do not and will never advocate that my services should be used without veterinary advice. I cannot diagnose your pet, but I can certainly help with complimentary care, where appropriate and be assured, that I will always act in the best interest of your pet, even if that means I need to refer elsewhere, for a specific issue.
