People that know me will attest to the fact that I spend enormous amounts of time researching and planning everything that I do. So, it will come as a surprise to know that my decision to become a Naturopath was both impulsive and intuitive. I started studying Naturopathy because it just felt like the right thing to do and nearly 40 years later I feel even more aligned with, and sure about, my life choice.

I guess, as someone who is always asking WHY, it’s understandable that I would seek a profession that is focused on seeking answers. Given that the cause of your health status is dependent upon YOU and YOUR LIFESTYLE CHOICES, and these are the key foci of Naturopathy, it is an obvious fit. I have spent the majority of my life refining ways to ensure that my clients understand their weak spots, know how to improve them and ultimately live to their true potential.

What helped me through my first consultation is no different than what I have relied on in my 250,000 consultations since.  I am clear that the formula to delivering successful outcomes is to be persistent, stick to my values, never compromise my integrity and, above all, practice what I preach.  I have found this paramount to helping people who are not getting benefits from orthodox strategies.

Although I welcome all patients through my doors, I have particularly focused on treating complex cases. It is, therefore, no surprise that I have specialised in treating ‘the emperor of all maladies’- Cancer. 

I have been a resident of Geelong for nearly 6 decades. I love keeping fit, travelling, hanging with my family and friends and educating myself as much as possible about health, fitness, philosophy and personal development.

I have four amazing daughters, two lively grandchildren, a beautiful wife and a majestic boxer dog called Ali.

I have been blessed to have met many amazing individuals who have taught me much more than any book could possibly hope to do. I look forward to sharing some of this wisdom with you.

Most of us would agree that the advancement of technology has brought about numerous benefits and efficiencies. However, it’s important for us to disconnect from it when we can. Here’s a few reasons why:Continue Reading


Welcome to 2024. I hope you were all able to get time to recharge during the break and have had a positive start to the year. One of the things that I use to recharge is reading. But this does not involve the scientific journals, naturopathic texts or personal development books which I’m obliged to read all year round. It’s through fiction. Novels born from a place of imagination and observation. Works that stretch your mind and your senses. With all of this said, here are my best reads for 2023.Continue Reading
