Sophia is not your typical nutritionist. Sophia’s philosophy revolves around treating people as individuals rather than labelling them by their disease or condition; this drives Sophia to find the root cause of her client’s health problems rather than treating with a mere ‘band-aid’ approach.
Sophia’s passion is use her skills & knowledge to help people improve their health physically, mentally & emotionally and to teach her clients how to keep their health in balance. Sophia has studied evidence-based Naturopathic medicine along with Nutritional & Herbal Medicine. Sophia is also a qualified Pilates instructor & Yoga practitioner who enjoys teaching & sharing her skills in both a class & individual setting.

- Zinc testing
- blood pressure & blood sugar monitoring
- body composition analysis

- Food intolerance testing – available onsite or with referral
Drawing on her experience from her clinical practice both overseas & in Australia, Sophia works with her clients to create tailored treatment plans which are personally structured with a strong focus on educating clients on how to maintain wellness with diet & lifestyle.
