About Me

Hi, my name is Kerri and I have been a practicing naturopath and medical herbalist for over 23 years. I’m also a devoted mum of two very busy and vibrant teenage boys, a wife, a cook, gardener, medicine maker and devourer

of many books.

I was inspired to become a naturopath, and especially a herbalist, after seeing a very talented and compassionate naturopath myself. I was highly stressed and had terrible irritable bowel syndrome, food allergies, headaches and anxiety. After a number of months of treatment which included herbal medicine, a complete change to what I was eating, meditation, tonnes and tonnes of slippery elm powder and time... I got better. It was through my own journey that I realised that I wanted to do the same for others, and why I also have a particular interest and love of treating digestive and hormonal disorders of all kinds.

As a naturopath and herbalist, I believe that I have the best of both worlds as I'm able to draw on the richness of centuries of herbal medicine knowledge as well as on rigorous modern scientific research based clinical trials, allowing me to make the most informed and best clinical decisions I can for my clients. I'm passionate about herbal medicine and find it endlessly interesting and exciting, especially as scientific trials always seem to further validate what traditional knowledge has always taught about herbal medicines. I also love reading and learning about the newest findings so you will often find me either researching something for a client, heading off to a seminar or creating a workshop to share with the community. 

My gorgeous little clinic is situated in the beautiful bushland suburb of Hornsby Heights on Sydney's North Shore, where it offers a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Here you will find tranquility and a place you may come to be nurtured, supported and empowered on your journey.
