Leah is an experienced and respected clinician who specialises in fertility support and mental health. Her primary passion is her clinical practice where she is inspired and humbled by her patients. She loves supporting people to reach their individual health goals and improve their quality of life.

She has completed extensive advanced training and is currently completing her PhD. She is a university lecturer, keynote speaker, author and educator to her peers, and the President of NHAA. She is also a media spokesperson for her profession.

Leah leads by example, remembering to live life to the fullest and believes that ill-health is merely a stepping stone to help you reclaim your true state of being. She subscribes passionately to the importance of 'practitioner heal thyself' so that she can be the best inspiration for change in others. 

She strives to find the answers to health questions and translate the information into knowledge and understanding for each person. Her passion is then to connect this understanding to the best treatment available. As such, she integrates her treatments with a number of other colleagues as required. She is often the practitioner people see when no one else can find the answers and regularly receives referrals from other clinicians.

Due to her additional training through her Masters, she specialises in supporting reproductive health for men and women, endocrinological disorders, general fertility, infertility, IVF/ART support, miscarriage support, preconception care and pregnancy/labour support. She has a wealth of expertise in these areas and is regular sought after to educate her peers due to her combined training and experience.
