Programs and Pricing

Change is not easy. But you have the ability to turn your health around.

My aim is to empower you so you can find the answers you’re looking for (with my help and support of course).

I encourage you to schedule a complimentary no obligation 15 min chat. During this call we can talk about your personal needs and how I might be able to help. I can’t offer solutions in this brief time. But I can suggest possible areas for investigation. I can also tell you which program might be a good fit in your situation.

If you already know you’re ready to get started, then this is how I work …

STEP ONE – INITIAL CONSULT

Working with me starts with an Initial Consult for all clients.

INITIAL CONSULT

$190

75 mins

In this session we will review your full health history. We will talk about your current wellness and health challenges. I’ll provide you with initial suggestions for nutrition, movement, sleep, stress reduction, supplementation and lifestyle. I’ll also answer any questions you have about functional lab testing. And then we can discuss which Wellness Program is best for you.

After our call, I’ll send you notes and a plan so you can start making changes straight away!

If you want to continue the process, it’s as easy as opting-in to one of my wellness programs which we can discuss in your Initial Consult and I can recommend which program might be right for you. We can also order any functional lab testing you want.

I look forward to meeting you !

We all have our individual health challenges. Let’s tackle them together so you can feel a whole lot better.

FUNCTIONAL LAB TESTING OPTIONS*

*We will discuss these options in our Initial Consult and the number of tests you decide on will also help determine the program you choose in Step 2. So don’t worry if you’re not sure what some of these mean. I’ll be able to guide your choices after I have spoken to you.

If you feel you’ve been doing all the ‘right’ things with a good diet and lifestyle but still not getting results, functional lab testing could provide the missing piece of the puzzle in regaining your health.

The best (and most cost effective) way to identify healing opportunities is to opt-in to one of my Wellness Programs as they include the analysis of functional lab tests. The testing will show how your body systems are functioning which will then lead how I put together your unique protocol. Which package you choose will depend on how many labs you wish to have done.

There are many lab investigations we can do. Your choices will depend on your individual needs. Other than blood chemistry panels, all other functional lab test kits can be shipped direct to you and tests can be completed in the comfort of your own home (most involve collecting poop or wee!). 

Some examples of functional lab options are below:

  • Hormone testing – The Dried Urine Test for Comprehensive Hormones (DUTCH). This test is the GOLD standard test for hormones now. It not only gives you the levels of sex hormones but the pathways they go down too. So you can see if they are going down the preferred pathway, or the cancerous or toxic pathway. As well as testing the sex hormones (estrogens, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA), it tests the stress hormone Cortisol and your circadian rhythm. It also has a marker for melatonin and 6 organic acid markers: HVA (dopamine), VMA (epinephrine), kynurenate (B6), MMA (B12),  pyroglutamate (glutathione) and 8-OHdG (oxidative damage). It is an easy to collect urine test, done over a 24-hour period.
  • Digestion – The Complete Microbiome Mapping (GI Map). This provides a comprehensive overview of the gut microbiome. All that’s required is a single stool sample. It tests for parasites, bacterial imbalances (pathogenic as well as opportunistic), levels of beneficial flora and the presence of candida/yeast overgrowth. It also tests several other important intestinal health markers including inflammation and Zonulin (a marker for leaky gut).
  • SIBO – Small Intestinal Bacterial OvergrowthIf you still have gut issues like bloating and IBS type symptoms, after already ruling out parasites and other issues, then you may have SIBO. SIBO is a common gastrointestinal disorder that often underlies chronic gastrointestinal symptoms of maldigestion and malabsorption, including bloating, gas, diarrhoea, irregularity and abdominal pain.  This test is a simple, non–invasive breath test.
  • Food Sensitivities (IgG)- Food sensitivities can cause a wide range of symptoms including inflammation to the gut. The foods that cause these delayed reactions are often hard to diagnose because of the time between eating the food and the physical reaction. The IgG food sensitivity test offers a useful tool for detecting the foods that may be causing you problems so you can eliminate them to support your healing.
  • Blood Chemistry testing options for nutrient deficiencies, thyroid and more… (this is needs dependent).
  • Other testing available depending on a client’s needs, such as genetic markers and HTMA (Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis) – coming soon

Please know that ALL our body systems are interconnected and impact each other. Your gut affects your hormones and vice versa. So often we need to look at more than one system at some point in your healing journey.

If you want to find out what functional lab testing might be right for you, book in for a free 15 min chat.

STEP TWO – choose A PROGRAM

We all have our individual health challenges. That’s why your health re-building program should be personalised too!

My qualifications in both Functional Diagnostic Nutrition and as an Autoimmune Protocol Coach means I can support my clients in a couple of ways – Autoimmune Protocol and/or General Wellness.  All my programs offer full support over 3 months as healing and restoring balance does take time, especially if you have been unwell for a long period.

To find out more about the program that will suit you, click on one of the options below:

NAVIGATING AUTOIMMUNE PROTOCOL (AIP) PACKAGE (6 WEEKS)

Cost $500 if paid upfront or payment plan of $270 x 2 months

If you suffer from one of the hundreds of identified autoimmune diseases, the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) is a scientifically supported, nutritionally dense elimination and reintroduction diet.  It has been designed to help you reduce and control autoimmune symptoms and flare-ups. It does this by removing foods known to cause inflammation in autoimmune disease sufferers and nourishing your body with nutrient dense food

Autoimmune disease occurs from a combination of genetics, environmental factors and diet and lifestyle.  You can’t control your genetics or past environmental exposures BUT you can make the right food and lifestyle choices moving forward.  You can better manage your symptoms.  It’s empowering to take back a bit of control. I can show you how to combine your current medical care with dietary and lifestyle modifications, so you can live vibrantly in the face of autoimmune disease.

The AIP diet:

  1. Helps to restore gut integrity
  2. Boosts your microbiome (gut flora)
  3. Helps you learn more about what foods work (and those that don’t) for your body
  4. Identifies foods that trigger symptoms or flare ups
  5. Is full of nutrient-dense, healthy foods (it’s sometimes about what foods you need to add, not just remove)
  6. Can help lower inflammation

I absolutely love teaching others how to live well with autoimmunity (yes, it is possible!).  I am currently accepting new one-on-one clients if you want help with adopting the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP).  Adopting AIP can be a huge learning curve which can feel overwhelming.  As your Autoimmune Protocol Coach my role is to support you to implement changes so that you can achieve long-lasting improvement to your health and quality of life. 

I will teach you the science behind the protocol, the process to follow to implement (adapted to work for your life circumstances), shopping guides, foods to include/remove, practical implementation, when and how of food reintroductions …basically coaching and supporting you along the way with lots of helpful tools to make life easier. 

My approach to autoimmune coaching involves assessing your functional health factors like medical history, current and past lifestyle factors.  This program includes fortnightly meetings tailored to meet your individual health goals and where you are at in your AIP journey. I work with clients one on one (virtually) no matter where you are located. 

Program includes:

  • 1 x 60 min session where we work out your individual challenges to implementing AIP and what support you need and put some fundamentals in place
  • A 3-day food journal (which you will complete in advance so I can understand your dietary starting point)
  • 4 x fortnightly follow-up sessions (30 mins). In each session we will introduce a new element of the Protocol to ease you into a more sustainable and healthy way of life.  I will be able to help you with implementation, motivation, transitioning through the different stages, troubleshooting, maintaining and reintroductions
  • Notes, resources and templates
  • Email support between sessions

(Note – This package can also be enhanced with functional lab testing if at any point we feel that you are not seeing improvement in some areas where we would expect, for example food sensitivity testing or checking your gut microbiome.)

Happy to work in with the rest of your health care team as having a supportive and collaborative team around you can make all the difference.

Note. Functional lab testing costs are paid by client direct to the relevant lab and are not included in the above package prices. The labs vary pricing from time to time so current pricing can be quoted during your sessions.  For further information about what labs are available, please see Frequently Asked Questions.

Once you are in one of my Programs, all sessions are by phone or video chat through my secure portal, Practice Better. If you choose video chat (it’s great to chat face to face…virtually anyway!) please make sure you’re in a location that has good internet connectivity.

I want anyone who is committed to regaining their health to be able to access my programs, regardless of budget. So, a payment plan is available if you prefer.

Following completion of any of my programs, you’ll have the option to do additional one-off sessions to continue with support for your healing, or to re-run lab tests to check on progress

What clients say about me

After being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2012, I found the most challenging thing was to work out a diet that would alleviate the symptoms and side effects of Crohn’s disease. In early 2021 a friend put me in touch with Simone and from our first conversation I felt Simone really understood my situation and made me feel very comfortable discussing my issues and the way different foods affected me and my lifestyle.
Working with Simone was truly a delight, our face-to-face online sessions were never rushed or cut short because the session time was up and the message support in between these sessions often made it feel as though I was her only client.
Prior to Crohn’s I was very active outdoors and in the last 9 years these activities have really taken a back seat due to my anxiety and unwillingness to get out of my comfort zone. Six months on from starting with Simone I can honestly say my life has changed. The symptoms and side effects of Crohn’s disease that I had been living with for the past 9 years have drastically reduced and I now have the confidence to get out and be active again.
It’s incredible how the right diet, supplements and guidance by a professional with such a wealth of knowledge can have such a positive impact on your life and wellbeing, and not only you but those around you too. Simone has changed my life and I couldn’t be more grateful.

I have been working with Simone for the past 6 months and it has been truly life changing! Coming to an age of 50 I felt there was definitely more going on with my body as I was always so tired! We then began the process to find out what exactly was happening. Uncovering there were a few underlying problems with my gut and an autoimmune disorder…we then began to eliminate and then rebuild my overall gut health. I found Simone to be so easy to work with…her support was above and beyond my expectations!

Tara

Clontarf, NSW
I was diagnosed with Hashimotos early 2021.  The information was overwhelming.  What were the correct blood tests to have? Which supplements should I be on? What was the AIP diet?  I did not know where to start.  My fatigue was overwhelming, I could not absorb anything.   I needed someone to guide me through this.
I found Simone on Facebook and took the leap.  Thank goodness I did. Simone took the time to explain all my why’s? My  blood test, my symptoms, the AIP diet, toxic triggers. Simone was an endless source of advice.  And most importantly I did not feel stupid asking questions.  I felt like I had a friend who totally understood what I was going through.
Even though I have an integrative Doctor and a Naturopath one would think well why another person?
I can tell you quite definitely Simone made a huge impact on my health as her explanations and guidance were so concise and meaningfully for me.  I will definitely be continuing with Simone for my personal health.
I would suggest even if you don’t have Hashimotos but perhaps another ailment I would say take the leap your health and life will be better for it.

I found Sim through a work colleague and will be forever grateful to him. I was feeling extremely lethargic and knew that ‘stuff’ just wasn’t right in my gut/system. I like the way Sim explores through functional lab tests, therefore having a definitive approach to what’s going on. It’s not a guessing game. Sim helped me resolve what was going on through supplements, nutritional advice and she reminded me how important self care is (which is easily put last on the list when you’re a working Mum.

After working with Sim, I now sleep through the night, I don’t get the bloating I used to experience, I have more energy and I make better food choices (it’s become second nature and I don’t feel as if I’m missing out on anything) My initial test results were quite confronting and it put me into a bit of a spin, but Sim made me feel calm and at ease. She ‘held my hand’ through the whole process. I’ve since recommended her to my husband (who has had amazing results) and also to clients of mine. What can I say, Sim is one of a kind and I’m over the moon that I met her!

When I contacted Simone, I needed a guide, a hand-holder, an advocate and someone to keep me focused on the end goal through this confusing and overwhelming journey of autoimmune disease.

From our first chat on the phone, to being two months into working together, Simone has truly been my guardian angel. She has held space for me, listening and empowering me towards regaining my wellbeing and due to us being in different countries we have done our work successfully online. Her knowledge and commitment to her clients health is integral in all she does, and I cannot recommend her more highly.

I sought out Simone’s help to navigate the symptoms of menopause as well as my constant exhaustion and problems with insomnia.  We ran the DUTCH hormone test and it showed hormone imbalances, blood sugar issues and some nutrient deficiencies.  

Simone developed my own personalised protocol to work on these issues and support my body.  I now know I wasn’t crazy feeling the way I did and there were reasons for my symptoms and am grateful that I can now work on bringing my body back into functioning better.  You really don’t have to accept these symptoms as something you just have to put up with, like I believed for the last couple of years!  I’m continuing to work on my health but feel I now have a plan to work towards and feel supported that Simone will help me along the way – thank you Simone.

Ryde, NSW

The results we’ve so far achieved for my son Ryan have been fantastic!  He is now 22 years old now and has had issues with constipation since he was a child. We ran some functional labs (GI Map, DUTCH hormone testing and food sensitivities) then Ryan started working with Simone on a dietary and lifestyle program together with supplements for three months to help with a leaky gut, gut bacteria issues, poor liver function, many food sensitivities and some hormone imbalances.  His bowel movements have become more regular and his dietary habits have significantly improved, bloating and inflammation have disappeared and he has lost some weight which was a bonus and he isn’t craving sweets anymore!  

We are extremely happy with the results. Thank you Simone for taking the time to listen and get to the root of the problems so we weren’t left guessing, as well for all your support and dedication in helping Ryan.
