Why Mary-Lou? 

As a Trauma-informed Practitioner and Integrative Health & Wellness Practitioner, I specialise in several areas to promote "Whole Body Healing". I focus on all aspects of your health, in order to achieve your best desired outcomes, including:

Physical health symptoms and illness

Stuck trauma patterns in the body, and/or dysregulated emotional responses

Relationship struggles (couples counselling and family planning - including fertility and miscarriage difficulties)

Functional Nutritional Counseling and Lifestyle

Your professional life (career: progression or change, goals and desires, or choosing to look at the possibility of Self-employment).


Mary-Lou creates highly therapeutic and simply delicious recipes for clients, because she is passionate about the statement below by Hippocrates (in 400bc) which says,  "Let thy food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food"


I also firmly subscribe to the following quote by Rachel Carson, author of 'Silent Spring': "We only destroy what we don’t value, and we can only value what we know and understand."

Indeed, a good understanding of your body systems and how they function enables you to value your health and that of your family and to take the necessary steps to keep it optimal.

What better way to do that, than by eating delicious therapeutic meals that target and benefit specific body organs and functions. That's precisely what my ‘YUMMY THERAPY’ series is all about!

In keeping with the Functional Medicine approach, which I practice, I firmly ascribe to the philosophy that we are not 'little individual compartments of Being' to be treated 'bit by bit'. Our bodies are incredible organisms with the innate ability to self-heal, given the appropriate tools.

Looking at it another way... we do not put diesel into our petrol cars and expect them to go very far, but incredibly, we expect our bodies to perform with inappropriate fuel sources (nutrition and energy), and keep going!

By providing a balanced approach (that is gentle, and goes at "your pace") and ascertaining what the key underlying imbalances may be, it is encouraging to experience how well we can help your body to sustainably recover, repair and regain optimal function.

Whether it is a Stress or Overwhelm 'Freeze' trauma response, hidden emotional blocks, physical imbalance in your body's biochemistry (nutritional approach), or simply a need for emotional clearing, it is my focus to help you identify what this underlying imbalance may be, and to support you with ways to assist you to create both emotional and 'body balance' to promote Whole Body Healing.

This includes ongoing support from me, for as long as we may deem necessary or appropriate as I am a study geek, and I always strive to stay on top of the latest research and scientific information. 


As a result of the level of my caring for my clients' well-being, a high percentage (90-95%) of my business is from repeat customers and referrals. (Read about my clients in the Client Testimonials). 

As with all your consultations and Support Sessions, if you choose the Emotional Clearing, it takes place online, on Skype,  WhatsApp video or Facebook Messenger video. This ensures you are in the privacy of your own home (or your 'safe space').. and you do not have to commute, or drive home through the traffic afterwards, which may undo all the work we would have just done! Furthermore,  no matter where in the world you are, Mary-Lou consults globally, so you can be supported by her, in the comfort and safety of your own home!
