I was born and educated in Germany, studied French in the South of France and have spent many years travelling the World before settling in the UK to study Herbal Medicine.
I gained my Diploma in Phytotherapy (Plant Medicine) in 2000 at the prestigious College of Phytotherapy in East Sussex, UK and initially practised Herbal Medicine in a busy Inner-City Clinic in Edinburgh/Scotland where I also helped set up a Free Clinic for low income earners, pensioners and students.
I moved to Australia in 2003 where I have done further studies in Progressive Kinesiology, graduating with a Diploma in 2012, and Aromatic Medicine, graduating with an Advanced Diploma in 2013. I am a registered and insured member of the National Herbalist Association of Australia (NHAA).
You can see me in Clinic each Friday at Kansha Therapies 6 Mary Street, Noosaville. Unfortunately the Clinic is not suitable for young children under the age of 5. Kansha Therapies prides itself in offering a peaceful Spa environment and noise could interfere with other therapists working at the Clinic. For small children I recommend video consultations, which are as effective as seeing me in Clinic.
In addition to my Clinic work, I offer Video Consultations which allows me to see patients Interstate and Overseas. Video Consultations are very easy to set up. You will receive a link with your booking confirmation. Simply click the link at time of your appointment to connect with me.
I am a great supporter of Integrative Medicine, and strongly encourage a cooperative working relationship between Medical Doctors and Natural Health Practitioners.
As a busy Mum of three girls, I understand the pressure that comes with running a hectic household and paying bills, which is why I use a realistic treatment approach that suits your family budget.
And … last but not least … I LOVE Food, having time with my beautiful family, catching up with friends, yoga, ocean swims, horse riding and having fun in the sun with our dog Lizzie.
Connie is extremely thorough in obtaining her client’s background information to diagnose and follow up. I admire the fact that she keeps her plans simple, relevant and realistic and does not over prescribe.
I recently took my 84 year old mother for a consultation with Connie. Mum has not had much to do with complimentary therapies, but was very impressed with Connie’s approach, professionalism and plan which still incorporated mum’s prescription medicine.
Connie’s support and follow up is exceptional and I would thoroughly recommend her services.
