Child & Family Wellness
Taking care of your children's wellbeing now, is the most fundamental step you can take in creating securing them a happy and healthy future.
If we promote, educate toward and empower good health and habits (mental health, emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing) in our children, we provide the stepping stones to having all the tools supporting wellness into adulthood.
It is our purpose here at Raising Healthful Kids to do just that; empower and educate our little people to grow up knowing that they can THRIVE.
Meet The Team
Katie is the founder here at Raising Healthful Kids and has had a passion for working with little ones and their Mamas since the very beginnings of her Naturopathic and Nutrition studies.
To further her understanding of the real issues faced by many of the children she was seeing in clinic, Katie has gone on to complete many focused practitioner courses, including SOS (Sequential Oral Sensory) feeding (for severe fussy/picky eating) and GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) training programs.
Additional to her Naturopathic and Nutritional care for your little one, Katie has a special interest in assisting families with emotional regulation and developmental conditions through EFT (emotional freedom techniques), reiki and both NLP & CBT (neuro-linguistic programming and cognitive behavioural therapies).
As Raising Healthful Kids and the other areas of Katie's business grew, it became time to introduce another practitioner to support the many families waiting to work with us;
Kahlia is the freshest face here at Raising Healthful Kids! Katie and Kahlia actually met studying, completing their MANY practical clinic hours and seeing their very first Naturopathic clients together.
Qualified as a Naturopath, Clinical Nutritionist and Herbalist, means a multi-faceted and experienced approach to looking over your child's wellbeing. Kahlia has been excited to come on board and support the families and children here to thrive and be well.
Since completing studies, Kahlia spent the first years of her qualified career working from a health food store, and therefore building invaluable and extensive experience in the many diverse areas of health that clients and customers would present with on the daily.
Such a gentle and kind approach to supporting our clients is what Kahlia is so loved for; alongside Katie, Kahlia has had a keen desire to continue to develop her knowledge with a specific focus on the concerns affecting children.
Children's Wellness Consultations
Here at Raising Healthful Kids we have put together an affordable wellness consultation package for you to receive the care and support you need for your little one.
We work online via secure telehealth link, so we can work with you and your child from anywhere in Australia, this also means that you don't have to bundle the kids in the car, or organise babysitting to be able to benefit from a consultation.
The consultation package begins with an initial consultation of up to 1.5 hours where we can spend time going through your child's whole history, hearing their personal story and supporting you with education. We'll gather up any results from you, organise any additional testing and then put together a starting plan which may include some prescription for supplements, nutritional advice or lifestyle support. Any supplements we recommend or prescribe will be able to be purchased easily through a link we provide and be shipped straight to your home address.
The second part of your child's wellness program will include a follow up consultation of up to 50 mins; the practitioner will help with organising when the best time frame for booking this second consultation in will be, depending on what we are working on for your little one. In the follow up consultation we focus on receiving an update from you about progress and how implementing the initial treatment plan has felt, as well as providing a framework for what your child's plan will look like moving forward i.e. do we need to see them again, will you need repeats of supplementation, do we recommend follow up testing or any dietary adjustments for a longer term approach.
Please click the link below to book your child in for a Wellness Program and get started. Katie and Kahlia both work with the children in our clinic and you'll be in safe and supported hands with either practitioner.
Please note: At this stage, Kahlia has increased availability due to being a new practitioner here at Raising Healthful Kids. Katie's books are temporarily full for new clients.
