After 10 years of working in Emergency Medicine and General Practice, Camilla has decided to take her medical experience into more of a holistic health and lifestyle coaching space, using a functional medicine approach.

Camilla is currently undertaking further study in applying functional medicine in clinical practice through the Institute of Functional Medicine. She is also studying Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and believes the six keys to a happy and healthy life include; what you eat, the quality of your sleep, how you move, protection from environmental toxins, how you relax or unwind and how you connect (inspired by Dr Frank Lipman).

Functional Medicine looks to find the root cause or mechanism involved with any loss of function, which reveals why a set of symptoms is there in the first place or why someone has a particular disease. Functional Medicine views us all as being different, genetically and biochemically unique.

This personalised health care, treats the individual, not the disease. Functional Medicine is deeply science based. The latest research shows us what happens within us is connected in a complicated network or web of relationships. Your body is intelligent and has the capacity for self-regulation, which expresses itself through a dynamic balance of all your body systems. Your body has the ability to heal and prevent nearly all chronic diseases of ageing.

As a busy working mother with two small children and a newborn, Camilla understands first hand the pressures placed on modern mothers. The transition to motherhood can be a tricky one to navigate and self care can easily slip to the bottom of our to-do list leading to exhaustion, overwhelm, isolation, anxiety, depletion and even depression.

As women and mothers, we often put the needs of others before our own, but we need to prioritise our own self care, our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing so that we can care for our loved ones and step into our role as mothers feeling calm, confident, empowered and balanced.

Camilla has a particular interest in providing medical, nutritional and emotional support to women and mothers from preconception, pregnancy and the post natal period through the early parenting years.
