Meet our Practitioners

SANDRA HARRIS - Psychotherapist and Homeopath

Gestalt Therapist, CMHN, ND. 

Hello my name is Sandra and I am a registered nurse, a credentialed mental health nurse, a qualified Naturopath and a Gestalt Therapist. I have worked as a mental health nurse for 30 years and i am able to provide counselling and psychotherapy sessions for conditions such as anxiety and depression. 

I also trained as a Naturopath in 2002 and have been treating animals with Homeopathy for conditions ranging from the physical to the psychological. I began this work after having success with treating my own pet Jack Russell, Waggs, for hind-leg paralysis which was unable to be addressed through the usual Veterinary means. Waggs' miraculous recovery through a systematic and targeted Homeopathic approach convinced me of the benefits of using this treatment modality with sick animals. I have had many successes since.
