What our clients have to say!
There’s nothing we love more than hearing the successes of the humans that work with us. Here’s a few of our faves.
” I had long term issues with depression, mood, energy, motivation and gut/bowel. I knew nothing about naturopathy but was referred by a friend. I have experienced really positive changes and results from treatments – has helped me to change my nutrition (and understand nutrition) and have seen some positive changes to my mood/energy. Really has been a blessing to part of the clinic.
“I came to Shift with a total lack of energy/crashing and mood swings; physically and emotionally. Fertility prep. Hormone balancing. Gas/wind/poor digestion. Breast lumps. I think that’s everything… Gosh these effect my whole life especially the first one listed above! From relationships with others and myself, my work, setting and pursuing goals, exercise you name it! Just made me feel like a total failure, stuck, depressed.
I can still remember the effects within the first day and then two weeks! I remember thinking… shit… WHAT’S IN THESE HERBS!?!? They’re great! Honestly also the feeling at the end of my first appointment of relief, hope, help, care/compassion and I guess community too really helped too. Falling sick and being able to use 100% natural remedies this was the first time EVER in my life I recovered within 24-48 hours naturally! So so good! Again, invaluable! Seriously excited to see the positive waves of change to come!
Working with the Shift team was GREAT! Invaluable. Care/compassion yet truthful, blunt, honest. I particularly enjoy really understanding why my body is where it is, what we are going to do and why/how it is going to help. What we are aiming to achieve with each step we need to take to get there. Because I understand building requires a foundation and many blocks stacked together over time to get that strong beautiful structure I want! Sorry… I would like** 😇 also a last add… I LOVE how everyone in the team knows what you are going through and are all eager to help in anyway that they can.”
“I was following Katherine on Instagram for about a year. During this time I was on 4 permanent medications before coming down with a chronic sinus infection. Nothing seemed to be working over a period of 6 months so the doctor gave me a medicated nasal spray and suggested I would need to use this for life. As I’m not normally prone to sinus problems I asked for some allergy testing to determine the root cause of the issue and the doctor didn’t feel this was necessary. This was the turning point for me – why wouldn’t our medical profession, those I rely on for guidance and health advice not want me to find out what was causing this issue? When I first visited Shift, I had chronic digestive issues, my body wasn’t absorbing nutrients, I was on the contraceptive pill every day of the year to manage migraines, had a thyroid problem I’ve been managing for 20 years with medication and had chronic stress and sleep problems.
My journey at Shift has been a long journey over a period of two years. Katherine was completely honest with me right from the start that due to the number of issues I had that these couldn’t be resolved in a short period of time – my body needed time to heal. I turned up for my first appointment with an expectation that I would be asked to give up gluten (for which I was fully prepared for). Little did I know that I would be asked to give up dairy (I mean who would voluntarily give up triple cream brie and sour cream), alcohol and coffee for one month. Coffee had become my crutch to get me through the day. I decided if I was serious about my health, I could do one month. I was pleasantly surprised how quickly the month went and how easy it was giving them things up for a short time. My second appointment, it was suggested I try for another month. By the end of month 2, my stomach was starting to feel better, my sinuses were starting to clear, I was sleeping better and I started to have energy. I soon realized that a lot of my health issues were as a result of my lifestyle and medications. The membership included access to workshops on health and well-being and to a range of natural therapies (acupuncture, myofunctional therapy, counseling). The workshops were essential in educating me on the changes I need to make and why. The other natural therapies offered also opened my eyes to alternate ways my body can be supported through the healing process. The journey took two years for me but I can now proudly say I am no longer on any medications including my thyroid medication and I no longer suffer from any of the ailments I previously had. I’ve now become more in tune with what my body needs at any given time.
From the minute you walk in to the minute you walk out, you are supported by a team of amazing people who understand and guide you through your journey. I feel so at home whenever I drop by and have come to see the team as a second family.
Thank you for your patience, love and support along the way; I’ve matured as a person spiritually throughout this journey.”
“I started coming to Shift to try hypnotherapy for my anxiety and general inability to cope with stress which I believed directly impacted my ability to lose weight (in turn achieving my goals).
” I came to Shift for help with acne, poor gut health, poor sleep, chronic fatigue, anxiety & depression. I was barely even functioning as a human being and had no interest or happiness in life
I found the team to be simply amazing!!!!! I have experienced many modalities with Shift and I have ALWAYS felt supported, cared for, encouraged & prioritised. I am so grateful for everything you all do, from phone reminders, emails, reception welcomes, every modality being so dedicated to their field & above all – for giving me happiness and motivation for life again!”
