"I have realised that I have found someone who gets me!"
After our appointment I was finishing off some of today’s mahi, and reflecting on a recent social post that we made recently called: How do I find the ‘right’ mental wellness professional for me.
When I first started working on this post a couple months ago, I remember thinking to myself: This is so ironic, ‘cause I have tried a many times to find a wellness professional that’s the right fit, and not had much luck. Here I am writing a post about how to do something I haven’t yet done!
And now that I reflect on this post, I have realised that I have found someone who gets me!
You’re great at what you do Lisa, I’m very grateful.
"It was honestly such a treat meeting you yesterday!"
Thank you so very much for taking the time to send these notes to me, it is greatly appreciated. It was honestly such a treat meeting you yesterday! I cannot wait for our next appointment in late October (here’s hoping it is in person).
Thank you once again for everything, Lisa! You really have helped me a lot already.
I am looking forward to embarking on this journey to full health.”
"I feel I'm coming back into myself again."
Ever since seeing you, and taking the supplements, I’m feeling good – my mood is the best it’s been in a while and I feel I’m coming back into myself again.
Thank you so much”.
"I feel that you know me inside out and I am so lucky to meet somebody like you to go through my life journey right now."
Thank you so much for your valuable advice yesterday.
I was so surprised when I met you I feel that I have found my long lost sister. I feel that you know me inside out and I am so lucky to meet somebody like you to go through my life journey right now.
Yesterday you have helped me realise my biggest problem was an emotional one.
I feel that your straightforward and excellent counselling style is what I need right now to clear my head. I believe that I need more counselling sessions with you to understand more about what I can do to change the way I think.
Can I have another appointment with you before the treatment plan please?
I look forward to hearing from you”.
"I really enjoyed our catch-up, and feel ready to tackle this with renewed enthusiasm."
The email summary of our appointment you sent through is great, thank you so much!
I really enjoyed our catch up and feel ready to tackle this with renewed enthusiasm.
I have also started implementing things already.
Have a great week.”
"I seriously benefit from our conversations"
“Good Morning Lisa!
Aww – as always, it was so lovely to see you and chat.
I seriously benefit from our conversations and being able to have that third-party reassurance/advice/knowledge etc. etc… ya know, ALL THE THINGS!
Thanks so much for your email.
I will take it all on board and continue to work on those lifestyle things as we discussed.
PS: I don’t want to jinx it… but I am definitely feeling in a much better place than I was when I first met you, back in Feb/Jan…? So go us.”
"I am definitely keen for more regular appointments"
The treatment plan you sent through is great, thank you so much!
It was great to see you, I love our chats.
I am definitely keen for more regular appointments, so I’ll book another one for a couple of months time.”
"I'm incredibly grateful as I feel better already!"
It was wonderful to meet you on Tuesday!
I’m incredibly grateful as I feel better already!
Thank you for this very detailed summary.
It’s very helpful to look back on and I don’t think you have missed anything from our discussion.
I have done two days of the magnesium powder too and so far, so good! I have definitely noticed that I don’t have the same lack of energy in the late afternoon.
Have a wonderful rest of the day and weekend ahead!”
"I told him [my specialist] all about you and he truly seemed very impressed!"
My eating habits have now changed quite a bit (for the BETTER, thanks to you). So far NONE OF THE TERRIBLE CRAMPS at the bottom of my abdomen and NO DIARRHOEA.
No Loparamide No Buscopan!
What a win!
Something wonderful to tell you, I saw my specialist, who is truly an open minded and amazing Dr. and Surgeon, he was EXTREMELY pleased that my pain, DIARRHOEA and not feeling well had stopped!
I told him all about you and he truly seemed very impressed!
As for his Nurse, she is going to GOOGLE you and said (before I told her about you) that I really seemed and looked so much better than the last time I was there! (June 21st.) She was SO IMPRESSED.”
"I am already feeling a lot better and more positive!"
It was nice to see you again!
Thank you very much for all the explanations in the consultation.
Yes, you are right about my client. Thank you for your advice. I will just offer what I can do.
I am already feeling a lot better and more positive!
I am glad that I contacted you. Because I could realise about my work schedule, that it was too much, and I have been doing this way for so long.
Also you have given me a good orientation about my habits and the vitamins, as there a lot of in the market and sometimes I am unsure what is best.
Have a lovely weekend!
"You sum up very well and capture everything!"
“Hello lovely lady!
Thanks soo much for my great catchup with you!
Love your summary of our visit!
You sum up very well and capture everything!”
"You are so incredible, you get me 'in a nutshell' and beyond."
“OMG, THANK YOU!
You are so incredible, you get me ‘in a nutshell’ and beyond. Thank you for listening to me and my brain farts (haha)!
I agree with you 100% and I will start to make more of an effort to be more present. I needed your reigning in and ‘drugging me’ with Kava today.
I walked away feeling very supported and loved so, thank you. Love you, and your work, sister”
"Thank you Lisa. I think I really needed to hear all of this."
“Thank you Lisa x
I think I really needed to hear all of this. A lot to digest.
It is like I have not realised what I have been through as it has been one thing after the other. Like I have got used to it. Hmmm sad.
The medicinal herb that you recommended was actually helpful.
The eating and the walking part is so much easier now it is in front of me with times etc to stop all the confusion after a weight gain.
I’m also now just in the process of figuring out how to action the first part of ‘our’ lifestyle plan!”
Can’t wait to see you at my next appointment x
"I loved meeting you"
“Thank you Lisa,
I loved meeting you and really appreciate your approach to supporting me to cure the root cause of my health issues.
I already feel more hopeful and calmer!
Thanks again, will be great to see you again in a month.”
"Thanks for keeping me so healthy prior to and during pregnancy!"
Hope you’re well!
Baby Zarah says hello!
She was born on May 20th.
Thanks for keeping me so healthy prior to and during pregnancy!
"My daughter is very lucky to have you!"
Thank you so much for your detailed account of the session last week.
You are so generous, wise, and funny and thank you for the links too – I will read them.
My daughter is very lucky to have you!
"I found it very helpful and enjoyed our conversation immensely. "
Thank you so much for yesterday, I found it (the appointment) very helpful and enjoyed our conversation immensely.
Looking forward to seeing the progress, and you, in a month.”
"So grateful for your help!"
“A massive massive thank you for everything you have done for me & my mental health to help me become myself again.
You’ve been a huge contribution to me getting my spark and passion for life back and being truly happy all by myself, off the medication etc, and as if it wasn’t enough to just be loving my life again, my partner clearly has seen it all too as HE PROPOSED!
He’s decided THIS is the girl he wants to spend the rest of his life with – the girl I’ve always been but had just lost site of!
Many happy tears & so grateful for your help!”
Your support, nutritionally, herbally, emotionally and your sense of humour, invaluable.
The supplements, especially the Neurolift, have made a huge difference in stabilising my moods.
Also, the new magnesium is the bomb, I feel a much better affect than on the previous Diasporal.”
"I almost feel like I’m seeing you as a therapist"
“I loved your email.
Had lots of lols reading it.
I almost feel like I’m seeing you as a therapist you’re so good haha.”
"I walked away feeling confident you know your s**t"
Loved meeting with you on Thursday.
I walked away feeling confident you know your s**t and definitely want to go ahead with the iodine program.
Thank you for all the information and thorough recount of the consultation.
Looking forward to getting started!!”
"I love coming to see you as you are more than a Naturopath to me."
“Hi there Lisa,
Thank you for the summary of our discussion on Thursday.
It is very helpful and I love coming to see you as you are more than a Naturopath to me.
You’ve come into my life when I’ve needed someone like you, to clarify things for me. Counsellors have their place, but you make me laugh (not just that though!!)”
"You're more onto it than any doctor!"
I saw the specialist on Wednesday, it was such a waste of time!
She was googling thyroiditis and other things on her computer the whole time but wouldn’t give me any answers. And just said I have to give it time to see if it will get better.
She gave me a script for propranalol but that only helps anxiety symptoms. She was all confused because my antibodies were fine. Lucky I only had to pay $80 of the $300! And I just have to recheck my bloods in a month.
You’re more onto it than any doctor!”
Thanks for your email.
It took a good three weeks or more but I’m very happy to say I’m now symptom free!
Thanks so much for your help with this.
I’m so glad I came to see you and went the natural route!
"I’ve been feeling great all day."
Thanks for your time this morning. I’ve been feeling great all day. I’m not sure if it was the cleansing honest chat or the kava!
Either or – I’m feeling great.”
"I very much enjoyed our meeting and got soooo much out of it"
I very much enjoyed our meeting and got soooo much out of it – of course!
What was interesting was that most of the discussion was more emotional and spiritual yet still connected and linked to health and wellbeing.
Thank you for the re-cap notes below, I’ll keep as a reminder of where I have come FROM.
Have ordered Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert, had the shake earlier and about to have a coffee, have lunch set up at home and the cherry bar by my side!
Feeling very positive about the changes happening NOW.
Thanks again Lisa!
And, I have passed on your website link to 2 people – one from Melbourne, and one from Auckland.”
"I have a really amazing feeling about our journey together."
Thanks so much for a great session.
And it was so lovely meeting you.
I am glad I finally met you as I have a really amazing feeling about our journey together.
Many thanks and look forward to our next appointment.”
"Honestly, I feel very lucky to have come across you! "
Thank you SO much for sending all of this through and for meeting with me. I’m really looking forward to our appointment next week and have been enjoying eating “normal” food and not working out like a mad woman!
I’ve also done my list of 7…
Really appreciate how many areas of life you went over with me!
I got so much out of our initial meeting.
Honestly, I feel very lucky to have come across you!”
"I love going to see you!!!"
“I love going to see you!!!
Gives boost to my life!!!
You have a such amazing energy!
Thanks for being so helpful!”
"You're a wizard"
I hope your week is going well!
I just wanted to say – I’ve seen _____ twice this week for training and she has so much life back! She seems a lot more energised, positive, interested in things and stronger in herself.
I’ve known for a long time that she would benefit from some changes, but your help has really facilitated this.
"I always feel a boost in confidence after speaking with you!"
Thank you so much Lisa, as always, your words of advice are truly appreciated!
I will write down your suggestions on what to say to myself and put them up on my fridge so I can be reminded of them every time I eat!
You have this knack of always making things sound so much more simpler than how I see things in my head! Thank you x
I always feel a boost in confidence after speaking with you!
Have a lovely week and stay well.
"I think you are great"
Thank you for today, I enjoy talking to you.
I understand your advice
I think you are great.
"YOU’RE THE BOMB!"
“I just hit the 67s on the scales (67.7) and I could cry I’m so happy. I screamed and my boyfriend thought we had won the lotto!
I’ll send you an ‘iodine so far’ review some time this weekend or is there somewhere I should post it directly?
YOU’RE THE BOMB!
I can’t thank you enough.”
"I just want to let you know how much I appreciate you."
“I just want to let you know how much I appreciate you accommodating a payment plan for me. I love being able to ‘use’ you as my main health professional. I love the way you work and the way you have helped me with everything so much.
But it would be extremely hard without being able to pay certain things off over a time period, so thank you (thank you) for being amazing and letting me do that.”
"I’ve missed your wisdom! It helped me ten fold."
Re: My recent appointment
I wasn’t sure exactly what I needed/what I was looking for but the last chat we had sent me on a whirlwind journey and I’d hit a point where I felt stuck again so I needed this appointment – a really good chat with you to be honest – to help me find a new flow with life.
(And, to be honest, I wanted to share with you all the wonderful achievements I’ve made since the last appointments. Leaps and bounds, still some lingering challenges… )
I got everything I needed out of this appointment today and I’m feeling f**k**g great, such an improvement for me!
Thank you so much for doing what you do, you are really good at it and you are great at tailoring your appointment style to suit the individual person.
So grateful for your validation and support.”
"I just wanted to say how much I appreciate you; your knowledge, wisdom and wackiness."
I just wanted to say how much I appreciate you; your knowledge, wisdom and wackiness. You have again helped to lift me up out of a darkish place. I feel optimistic and energised and looking forward to healing my system from the impact of constant mind medication.
You have a magical and mystical soul. I trust you.
PS: The urge to drink my head quiet has gone?? What magic is this you have wrought pray tell.”
"I turned 40 over the weekend...But, I'm probably feeling the healthiest I have done in a long time."
So – six months after I started on the elimination diet, I’m through the reintroductions. I can eat normally again – hurrah! Saying that – a lot of the habits and recipes will definitely stick – I’ve really enjoyed this culinary adventure.
To be honest with you, in hindsight, I probably could have told you that those would be the foods that I would have ‘issues’ with, so no great surprises. I’m still roughly tracking how I feel and what I’m eating. Making sure that I’m not going overboard with things that I was sensitive to… BUT – it’s SOOOO nice to be able to go to potlucks and eat all the yummy things!!!
It’s been such an interesting process.
Thank you for helping me navigate it.
I turned 40 over the weekend – erk! But – I’m probably feeling the healthiest I have done in a long time, so I’m excited for the start of this new decade.
Thanks so much!”
"I felt really well looked after – so thank you"
Thank you so much for our session yesterday!
You are so wonderful – caring, funny, relatable and a straight shooter, which I appreciate. I felt really well looked after so thank you.
Thanks for setting out everything in an email for me. I feel really positive and confident about the next steps forward! I went and got cashews, brazil nuts and filtered bottled water yesterday (until we sort the filter) and am excited to eat a diverse range of food.
Look forward to speaking with you in a month’s time.
"I think you are a magician."
I just wanted to let you know I could cry with happiness right now haha. I know it’s still early days but I really do feel a difference since starting these supplements. I have so much energy and I’m so positive. I am a week away from my period and I have assignments due in a week and last week at work was very chaotic but I have been so calm! For once during the monster phase, all is well…
Amazing what a difference one thing can make to your everyday life.
I think you are a magician.
Thankyou a million times!
(and Jesse, my partner, also thanks you a million times)”
"Are you a witch?"
“Regarding the chronic constipation I came to see you with…
I thought I’d let you know that the day after seeing you I pooped. And every day since! Are you a witch?
Giving myself a diverse diet and actually thinking about it as nourishment has been life changing. Also the slow chewing, I never realised what a cookie monster I was when I ate.
I can now poop!
I am a super pooper.
Witchy poo! I bow before you.
Also, despite thinking I didn’t have stress, you saying it looked like that was what I was experiencing got me thinking about if that was so. I started noticing my breath holding, tight throat and clenched jaw. I started realising how jittery and frantic I was at work (calm on top). I thought about how I want my life to be, and what the gap was between that and how I experienced my work day. I’ve been taking steps to address this. Slightly ambushed by the pandemic, but still more aware than I would have otherwise been.
Thank you 100x”
"That was such an awesome session."
“Thanks for yesterday, that was such an awesome session.
Wow, I took those relaxing pills yesterday after dinner and was asleep in about ½ an hour, my whole core and lower back just relaxed. It was pretty amazing.
So far – definitely a fan.
I’ll let you know how I get on, but this (my treatment plan) all looks great.”
"I’m so grateful for you and your energy!"
“Thank you so much for your session with me!!
You have no idea how much that affected me positively, I’m so grateful for you and your energy!
Just thought I’d let you know what an impact the diet, Rhodiola and rescue spray has already had. I no longer have my 3pm slump which has been very strange and I can slowly feel myself moving forward.
I’m so excited to see you in a couple weeks time!”
"I love working with you."
“Thank you for that in-depth detail of what we discussed 🙂
Thanks for all you do and continue to do.
I love working with you.”
"You got it in a nutshell!"
“You got it in a nutshell! Thanks for being so good at what you do and not being dismissive.
I’m encouraged I will see the results with the plan we’ve discussed.”
"It was the most fun I’ve ever had at an appointment."
“It was great to see you – it was the most fun I’ve ever had at an appointment. It feels like a catch up with a friend who has this awesome knowledge and advice to share!
Thanks for your time and looking after the entire family.”
"Thank you...Thank you."
“Thank you so much for our last visit, you spent a lot of time with us and you understood so much and summarised our discussion so well.
Thank you again for going above and beyond.”
"I couldn’t be more satisfied with the outcome of the appointment today."
“I chose to come to you because I read a lot of your blogs and I very much enjoy the way you write you are so engaging, direct and funny.
I couldn’t be more satisfied with the outcome of the appointment today.
You are bang on!! I need to calm down, that is my biggest difficulty to get in my body and stay there. I appreciate you telling me firmly and repeatedly and again in the email, it’s sinking in.
Simple yet profoundly powerful.
You made me feel very understood despite me being in a total state and even more importantly you were really kind.
I look forward to addressing my health with your guidance as I’m excited about what you can teach me.
Cool thank you so much magic lady.”
"It’s good to know there’s a decent Naturopath around who knows her stuff!"
Francis’s digestion is so much better now, am thinking we will just continue with the two supplements you prescribed till they are finished, and keep going with the Iberogast if it looks like he needs it? Sound like a plan? The change in his digestion was literally an overnight cure once he took the Iberogast at the right time and used the supplements you gave.
Then I was thinking that I’ll bring him along in December for you to review and maybe do some general health maintenance for him if need be.
Thank you SO MUCH for helping him – it’s good to know there’s a decent naturopath around who knows her stuff!!”
"Thank you for your intelligent, funny and direct approach to health care and advice"
I wanted to drop you a line to say you are a ‘Gem’ of a human being.
Thank you for your intelligent, funny and direct approach to health care and advice. For years I had been slowly drowning in silent stress and the crazy treadmill of life and thinking it was normal (and not to mention that hideous chronic rash). It had been a long time since anyone had seen through my smile and challenged me and my lifestyle choices.
It has only been ten weeks but with the aid of supplements and a complete lifestyle change I am beginning to feel the most balanced I have in a very long time and I have now been rash free for the past few weeks…not to mention the random new bursts of energy and the odd little run!
I am so grateful for your kindness and professionalism. Life in the calmer lane is definitely more enjoyable.”
