Val is known as one of Perth’s best recognised and most respected natural therapists having been in full time practice since 1979 and has been closely involved in taking naturopathy in Western Australia from its infancy to today’s effective, efficient and professional level of natural healthcare.
Since 1984, Val has practiced from the present clinic and patients have watched the practice grow, especially since 1996 when the premises were extended and her integrated team of carefully selected natural and orthodox health professionals was brought together.
Recognised as the ‘grandmother’ of the industry in Western Australia, Val has represented natural therapists at the National Council level of the Australian Natural Therapists Association of which she is a Fellow and Life Member. Val is often sought as a media spokesperson and is a regular presenter on topical issues connected with natural therapies. She has always been closely involved in important legislative natural healthcare issues at state and federal political levels.
For many years Val was a senior lecturer at the Perth Academy of Natural Therapies and has been delighted to see naturopathy accepted under ancillary benefits by all health funds in recognition of its value to patients. Having such a large patient following and with her special focus on complex cases and cancer patient care, Val has surrounded herself with excellent colleagues who are able to successfully treat the ever-increasing number of new patients which her well-respected clinic attracts.
Val’s has recently published her practical healthcare guide and recipe book Very Wellness which has proved to be a runaway success throughout Australia.
