Herbal medicine is the most widespread of all forms of medicine used across the world for thousands of years. In recent years there has been growing scientific evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of herbal medicines. Jacqueline practises with a range of herbs and can customise herbal formulae based on individual health concerns and needs. While some herbs have the potential to result in adverse reactions with over-the-counter and prescription medications, Jacqueline carefully reviews the client’s current health before recommending a specific herbal remedy or combination.
Our relationship with food is essential to our health and that of the body. Nutrition is a basic component of preventative medicine that can be effective for many common health problems. After a thorough dietary and health assessment, Jacqueline can determine nutrient deficiencies or food sensitivities. Vitamins and minerals are also used to help treat health conditions; incorporated with nutrient-rich foods and nutritional supplements to support healthy living.
Flower Essence Therapy
Flower Essence Therapy is a form of vibrational medicine with a very long history spanning many centuries. For thousands of years indigenous Australians used flowers to heal emotional imbalances and physical injuries. Vibrational medicines contain high-frequency subtle energies that are able to act on the subtle bodies. Flower essences promote emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical states of wellbeing. Jacqueline uses the Australian Bush Flower Essences. They are safe and without side effects, and work quickly and deeply. They can help people to liberate themselves from self-destructive behaviour patterns by releasing their negative beliefs and allowing positive qualities to come flowing back from within.
Counselling is one way of helping people to facilitate change, to feel better and discover new ways of thinking and behaving. Counselling provides an opportunity to explore how you may experience different behaviour and emotional states within a supportive and non-judgemental relationship. It can assist in building emotional strength with the stress of normal life events, and allows for new opportunities and ways of handling these to the best of your capabilities to contribute to personal growth and wellbeing.
Trauma and Healing
Trauma and Healing responds to both indigenous and non-indigenous communities; locally, regionally and internationally. Understanding the origins and effects of trauma, Jacqueline is able to provide support to healing as well as insight to deal with social and emotional trauma in various interpersonal and professional contexts. Jacqueline works collaboratively with other experienced practitioners to assist individuals in their traumatic experience so it no longer causes distress in everyday life.
