About Us


At Brisbane West Naturopathy and Nutrition, Katrina has a passion for natural health and finding out why ‘I just don’t feel right?’ When was the last time you felt right?

Katrina graduated from Endeavour College of Natural Medicine (Brisbane) in 2013 with a Bachelor of Health Science in Naturopathy and is currently studying a Masters of Health Administration through Flinders University (Adelaide).

Katrina is a member of Australian Natural Therapists Association (ANTA) and is a SIBO Masterclass Practitioner. Katrina holds a current Blue Card and First Aid Certificate.

Naturopathy and nutrition are constantly changing due to more scientific research within the natural health world. Katrina incorporates both traditional and scientific practices into designing a personalised treatment plan for you. This includes functional testing, herbal medicine, nutrition and dietary plans and lifestyle changes that will have you feeling vibrant, full of energy, sleeping better and healthy once again.

Naturopathy is still based on these beliefs:

  1. Mind/Body Medicine;
  2. Herbal Medicine;
  3. Clinical Nutrition;
  4. Identify and treat the cause of illness;
  5. Treat the body as a whole; and
  6. The clinician being your mentor.

At Brisbane West Naturopathy and Nutrition, Katrina is incorporating Reiki treatments into her consultations. Reiki is a spiritual practice and healing art in the form of energy medicine (Mikao Usui). Reiki supports your natural healing ability and your wellbeing.

Holistic Perimenopausal Support Package

6 Week Base Package is $ 595 (testing included)

12 Week Ultimate Package $995 (testing included)

Perimenopause generally starts in a woman’s 40s but can start earlier in some women. Perimenopause can last between 4 to 6 years (sometimes its shorter other times it can be longer depending on the individual) and is the lead up to menopause (in your 50s). Perimenopause is the beginning of a lot of hormonal changes and fluctuations within your body.

Most women find that they cannot lose weight as easily as they once did and find that even though they have kept eating the same diet and exercising (which used to work) they are now gaining weight. This is partly due to your metabolism slowing down, hormonal fluctuations, problems falling asleep or staying asleep, night sweats, exhaustion, mood changes, migraines or hot flushes – these contributing factors can cause poor dietary choices as you can feel rundown, exhausted or overwhelmed by these changes.

To help you ease through perimenopause and transition into menopause Katrina has created a beautiful, holistic package tailor made just for you!
