Dr Kathleen

Functional / Natural Medicine Practitioner
Owner and Director of Dr Kathleen & Team Global Consulting

Welcome, I’m Dr Kathleen; I’m so glad you’re here.

In my consultations:

  • I won’t make recommendations without explaining why
  • You will feel heard, not rushed
  • You won’t be lectured to or talked down to

My passion is helping you discover your true well-being by providing the most cutting-edge, researched wellness strategies to help yourself. There is no guessing or trialling mentality here…I believe in industry-leading functional pathology testing to provide reasoning for recommendations.

Hi, I’m Chantel, and I look forward to supporting you along your wellness journey. 

I am a qualified naturopath and integrative health coach with a special interest in women’s health and healthy ageing. Like Dr Kathleen, I enjoy using functional pathology testing to investigate underlying biochemical factors that could potentially be contributing to health concerns. I have a passion for the endless quest for learning, currently in the naturopathic and functional health fields while keeping current with my previous qualification in law.
