Marta is a psychotherapist and integrative naturopath, drawing upon both conventional and natural health sciences to assess, manage and prevent conditions by working together with GP’s, specialists, physiotherapists, psychologists, dieticians and other professionals to ensure the best possible health care outcomes. Her practice focus is on herbal medicine, nutrition, lifestyle management and counselling for the promotion of optimal health.
Marta originally trained in microbiology and parasitology at UQ with a focus on tropical health, then followed this with psychology at UQ and QUT. She worked in private practice and hospital medical clinics for almost a decade and completed practice management at UNE before pursuing natural medicine through AIAS.
She has a special interest in the gut and mental health, and has worked in drug and alcohol addiction treatment since 2015. Marta predominately uses CBT techniques, but has undertaken additional training in other counselling styles including hypnotherapy.
Marta is also a certified doula able to provide support during pregnancy, labour and the immediate post-partum period to assist birthing mothers and new parents through this major transition.
