Mentoring

I am dedicated in supporting health professionals in education and clinically relevant know-how.

Need guidance at a clinically practical level?

Want to know how to manage a complex case?

Need hand-holding through your case?

My mentoring services is intended to help to guide you through the process of gaining familiarity with the theory and practice of integrative medicine, and also to facilitate partnering with your affiliates within your practice model in a cohesive mutual learning environment. Peer mentoring also serves as a valuable resource of clinical and practical know-how.

I hold your hand as a health practitioner to assist you in working up a find tuned diagnostic assessment regime, treating your patients with an integrative approach employing scientifically validated functional pathology testing and evidence-based natural therapy treatments.

Over the years, feedback from my mentees and delegates has encouraged me to offer individual or group mentor sessions. Health practitioners are seeking to collaborate with other like-minded practitioners, share ideas, troubleshoot the cases, and up skill themselves in a practical clinical setting.

The aim of mentoring is to unravel a complex case, prioritize assessment and diagnostic options, delve into understanding the chemistries based on lab results, and develop a tailored evidence-based natural treatment plan.

Integrative Approach

As health practitioners, we are obliged to maintain continuing education and are often bombarded with theory rich academic transcripts from our esteemed specialist peers. The problem lies in utilising up-to-date research in your clinical practice.
We aim to provide simple, step-by-step practical clinical guidance to transition your patient with the whole health approach to optimal health.

  • Structured follow up on client case presentations – get an understanding of your patients case by identifying underlying causes, what has worked, what should be considered

  • learn how to use your compounding pharmacist – how to tailor a unique formulation for your patient to optimize dosage and reduce intake of numerous supplements
