Naturopathy, counselling, body therapies
Two main qualities that Henrietta brings consistently to her clients and sessions are an unwavering absoluteness as well as divine dedication to the body and its communications through its particles. She holds a deep care and warmth as she explores what is called for to bring healing and balance back to the body in a down to earth and practical way. Never is it about fighting what the body communicates, rather it is about listening to the body and heeding its call, supporting it to heal. The body naturally brings itself back to balance or homeostasis - our 'job' is simply to tune into how we can support this process by removing any potential barriers and accelerating the return to our natural harmonious state of being.
In addition, Henrietta considers herself a science geek of sorts with her love for nature, the human body and how it functions on a macro and micro scale. Her love for biochemistry and its applications in health is key in her connection with people and supporting in their re-turn to true well-being.
Henrietta also has a very cheeky sense of humour... She enjoys spending time at home with her husband, son and dog, whom she uses as test subjects for her experimental food and herbal tincture and tea recipes.
She is also involved in various community groups and donates her time and expertise to women’s health groups offering support in aged and palliative care, and cooking/nutrition forums. Henrietta also enjoys having a chat with visitors to her clinic in one of 5 languages!
