14. Specific Disclaimer
This disclaimer relates to my naturopathic consultations.
- My Responsibility
I hold a Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) from the Australasian College of Natural Therapies in connection with Torrens University Australia and an Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy. This is a rigorous, four year science degree which teaches a comprehensive understanding of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathophysiology, pharmacology, herbal and nutritional medicine. I am a full member of Australian Traditional-Medicine Society (ATMS). These memberships require me to complete at least 20 hours of professional development each year to ensure I am updating my skills and remain abreast of the latest scientific research.
As a naturopath, I am dedicated to enhancing your whole health and wellbeing. However, there are times when the services you need for healing are outside of my scope of practice. In these cases I will refer you to a suitable practitioner, such as a GP, counsellor, psychologist, massage therapist, physiotherapist or osteopath.
My naturopathic services are for people who are interested in improving their health and are motivated to make changes to their lifestyle and diet. I work with clients to make small, incremental and sustainable changes to their diet and lifestyle, and we can move as slowly as the client likes. But if you are not ready for change, or have significant emotional challenges which are affecting your ability to enact change, I am happy to help you identify and accept this is where you are at and recommend another practitioner who can help you work through this.
- Your Responsibility
I will always strive to provide you with the best naturopathic care possible. However, if you do not provide me with accurate information about your health, I may not be able to offer you the most appropriate treatment for your condition and therefore you may not see the results you desire. You must provide me with full and accurate information about your diagnosed medical conditions, medications or supplements, known allergies and intolerances, so I can ensure safety of treatment and check for pharmacological interactions with any herbs or nutrients I prescribe.
15. Payment Terms
- Forms of Payment
Payment can be made at the time of booking or at the end of your consultation. If you make a booking through my website you will be prompted to pay in advance. I accept payment via cash or credit card for payments due during the consultation. In some cases, I may accept payment via direct bank deposit.
- Security Policy
- Currency and GST
All amounts quoted and charged are in Australian dollars. I am registered for GST and therefore GST is charged on dispensary items I prescribe.
16. Returns Policy
Payment is required via credit card or cash either at the point of booking, or at the end of each consultation (see Payment Terms above). At your request, I can issue you a Tax Invoice/Receipt via email after the consultation. There is no refund for change of mind, but if you are unhappy with the consultation or it has not met your expectations, then please contact me to discuss.
