Nutritional Therapist

 

Alissa is a registered Nutritional Therapist [BA (hons), Dip CNM (hons)] who takes a Functional Medicine approach with her clients.

Alissa has experience working with complex undiagnosed conditions. She has a particular interest in autoimmune, skin, and gut health conditions, where she has her own direct, personal experience, as well as in brain health and anxiety conditions. She enjoys keeping up with current research, digging deeply into science journals, and exploring opportunities to better help her clients. Since qualifying as an NT, she has become a certified Buteyko breathwork instructor and a Qigong instructor. She is currently studying to become a Tai Chi instructor.

Alissa is very passionate about healthy eating and healthy living in general. She will happily provide dietary advice and recipe inspiration. She’s a firm believer in establishing good daily habits and routines, as long-term well-being comes from consistency and changing patterns that no longer serve you. She strongly believes the client must be an active participant in their healing journey to achieve long-term goals.
