Happy healthy and resilient teens
Alison is a highly skilled Naturopath, Nutritionist and Bowen Therapist with over 20 years clinical experience. She is an expert in adolescent health and has a passion for supporting her teenage patients as they embark on the challenging years of adolescence and beyond. This period of rapid growth and change brings with it a myriad of mental and physical health challenges, not only for the individual but often also for their families.
Common teenage health presentations that Alison works with include:
- Stress and anxiety
- Insomnia and disturbed sleep patterns
- Healthy weight gain/loss
- Nutrition for energy and concentration during stressful times such as exams
- Nutrition for sport and exercise
- Sports injuries
- Nutritional deficiencies commonly seen in adolescents
- Skin conditions such as acne & eczema
- Lowered immunity
- Chronic fatigue
- Glandular fever
- Digestive issues
- Recurring respiratory conditions including asthma
Alison’s holistic approach has achieved great success in helping teenagers lead healthy happy and resilient lives, and her guidance has helped her patients towards positive choices in multiple facets of their lives. As well as addressing symptoms associated with a condition, she works to identify any underlying causes such as stress due to excess workload, training regimes, issues around body image and self esteem or other areas of imbalance in a patient’s life.
Alison’s wisdom and experience combined with her gentle yet firm, non judgemental demeanour provides a safe and secure environment for patients. Having raised three children of her own Alison has first hand experience in the challenges of parenting adolescents. The most rewarding aspect of working with teens is their willingness to openly listen and take control of their own health with the lessons they learn being with them for life.
While her focus is on teen health, Alison welcomes all family members into her clinic – particularly the mothers of her young patients (who often leave their own health until last!).
