Initial assessment

To begin your functional medicine approach you will meet with Julia or Keeley who will use their experience as certified functional medicine practitioners to understand your condition and background in order to form an initial plan and set the framework for your personalised ongoing support. They look beyond your symptoms to find the root cause of your concerns by asking a wide variety of questions about your current health, health history, family medical history, and about the different systems of your body. We try to navigate our way towards the ‘root cause’ of a symptom or condition, of where there are many and each person's is different. You may be advised to complete relevant functional tests before assigning you to one of our experienced practitioners who specialise in particular techniques or conditions.


Ongoing support

Following your initial consultation and subsequent follow up to discuss your individualised programme, your ongoing support plan will be implemented by a member of the team who you will be assigned to depending on the suitability of the practitioner's specialities and your own condition. You may remain with Keeley, for ongoing functional medicine support, Alissa OR Florence for specialised nutritional therapy or Alice for physical treatment. Julia supports each practitioner within the team to oversee your individual case.

The team meets regularly to discuss cases and ensure the best care can be provided, at various points your practitioner may recommend you see other members of the team for specialised support.
