How do I involve clients in decision making?

Clients are integral to the process, providing valued insights into their thoughts, health, environment, community, past experiences, priorities, and values. This client-centric starting point provides the essential foundation to establishing holistic individualised management plans, and achieving health goals. Clients are empowered to enhance their skills in self-care and self-management.

What are my qualifications?

I am a fully qualified and registered medical practitioner, with an interest in improving health through lifestyle interventions.

I completed my Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery with Honors at the University of Tasmania, and published a paper related to cardiovascular disease management. I then worked at the Royal Hobart Hospital and in General Practices in the greater Hobart region, before focusing in on the area of burnout and workplace wellbeing.

Who will benefit from my services?

If you would like to have someone on your healthcare team with a particular interest in burnout and workplace wellbeing, and prefer the convenience of video-conferencing and after-hours appointments, then my services may be a great fit for you.

Examples of the types of clients I work with:

  • Burnt-out professionals who want to be proactive in seeking help, but are time poor, particularly during standard work hours.
  • Burnt-out health professionals who would like to have someone on their healthcare team who understands the challenges of working in hospital and community health services.
  • People who live in rural areas with challenges accessing these services in person.
  • Burnt-out parents and carers: It can be difficult to get to doctor’s appointments and actually put your health first!

Telehealth consults can often be scheduled before work, in the evening, and on weekends. 

What issues can I assist with?

I will work with you to create a tailored individual approach, set realistic and achievable goals, and agree on a clear plan to make progress towards overcoming burnout or optimising your wellbeing. Issues I can assist with include:

  • Burnout
  • Stress
  • Preventative self-care strategies

I do not prescribe any medications, and you will need to see your GP or specialist to address this aspect of your care.
If I feel that you require medication or more detailed specific expertise in any of these areas, I will refer you to the appropriate healthcare provider with your consent. This may include your GP, a psychologist, occupational therapist, dietitian, physiotherapist, or exercise physiologist.
