I am a woman on a mission: to bring the power of optimised plant-based diets to the masses.
I’m convinced naturopathy was always in my destiny. I vividly remember as a child picking all manner of plants in my back garden in Cambridge and mashing them up into something to give to my little sister. For whatever reason, I believed if she took this concoction she’d be able to see unicorns. Luckily, my mother intervened in time before I unwittingly poisoned my little sister, and my herbal dispensing has progressed substantially since those days. Fundamentally though, I still believe that by consuming plants (both on our plates, and in herbal extracts), magic can happen.
Despite this early dabbling in herbal medicine
it wasn’t until I experienced my own health challenges and found my own answers through natural medicines and dietary change, that my immense respect for the power of plants developed. With a strong family history of mental health disorders, I battled with bouts of fairly severe anxiety and depression throughout my childhood, teenage and early-adult years. I also experienced acne that left my confidence in shreds, which I was unaware could have been improved with dietary change or herbal medicines.
Having experienced significant pain since the age of 19, I was diagnosed at 22 years old with arthritis which also turned out to be hereditary.
I recall times as a 24 year old where the pain was so bad, I was unable to hold a pen or (more importantly) a mascara brush. Whilst the GP offered me medication, it had side effects I didn’t want, and the antidepressants I tried left me so drowsy I would fall asleep nearly any time I sat down. The antidepressants led to significant weight gain, which left me feeling very low in myself. My immune system was also very sad; for years I would get sick and bedbound for around a month every Winter.
Fast-forward through a transition to an entirely plant-based diet and a four-year health science degree in Naturopathy, at 32 years old my health is the best it’s ever been.
Optimising my diet and using natural medicines I enjoy happiness and energy I never experienced before, and my body is predominantly pain-free. My familial predispositions have so-far been overcome, and I am full of gratitude for the quality of life I now enjoy. Thanks to my plant-based diet and healthy lifestyle, I also enjoy far lower risk of heart disease or cancer (other chronic health conditions which run rampant in my family).
Helping others reach their highest quality of life through natural medicine is truly my life’s calling.
As a vegan who’s studied in depth for years the science of thriving on an optimum plant-based diet, so different from the microwave chips, singular boiled vegetable and battered chicken I was raised on, I LOVE to help others make this transition - I know how amazing they can feel living this way. It took me a while to get this way of eating right, and for many years I definitely wasn’t getting the nutrients I needed.
I am also extremely passionate about helping people with mental health disorders, hormonal issues, digestive concerns, autoimmune conditions and cardiometabolic disorders. Even if there’s nothing “diagnosably wrong” and it’s just a matter of improving energy, mental acuity or mood, or losing weight, using plants as medicine has so much to offer, and the benefits rarely end at improving the main problem. I’ve helped patients with conditions ranging from OCD, to missing periods, to SIBO and seen some truly amazing results. I would love to help you.
I like to keep my treatments evidence-informed and provide a safe, compassionate and non-judgmental space to support people.
Please see testimonials to see some of the results people have had working with me.

For a happier, healthier you, and a happier, healthier planet.
I've had a pretty horrid time with gut and fatigue problems for over two years and in this time, I have seen countless... doctors, naturopaths, gastroenterologists, Chinese medicine practitioners and so on...Some of which told me to stop my vegan diet, so this was when I searched for a vegan Naturopath and found Camilla.Camilla has been nothing but outstanding since our first contact. She is the first person in my health journey who I feel is genuinely invested in my health and has worked tirelessly to help and provide answers. She is always quick to reply to my lengthy emails and although currently at the early stages of my treatment, every piece of advice and treatment given has been based off facts and logical reasoning.I really recommend Camilla. I have felt very comfortable with her from day one and you will get someone who is knowledgeable, passionate but most importantly, will do her utmost to help you through any problem.read more
I would without a doubt recommend Camilla to anyone looking for a naturopath. She is so warm, caring, knowledgable and... helpful. I sought Camilla’s help to work on my severe PMS, heavy and painful periods and PTSD and mental health. From the moment I saw her she went above and beyond and is always there to help whenever I have any questions or concerns. I have just started my treatment plan and feel confident that I will see an improvement with my concerns.Thank you so much Camila xread more
I have been working with Camilla for a couple of months now with the aim of treating and managing hair loss, stress,... and anxiety. Camilla's process is incredibly thorough and informative and it has been amazing to not only feel better, but learn SO much in the process. My treatment plan has been very manageable, and Camilla has always made sure I understand why we are doing things rather than just telling me. This has really helped me to feel more in control and kept me committed to the lifestyle changes. Prior to working with Camilla, I felt a pretty overwhelmed with information, none of which I could be certain was true or even relevant to my symptoms whereas Camilla's process is so personal, and completely tailored to the individual.Camilla has been so kind, and understanding and has made the whole experience as comfortable and easy as possible. I have been shocked by how quickly I began to feel positive changes, and cant wait to see them continue!read more

The consults were thorough and in-depth and camilla made me feel super comfortable the whole way through.I had bloods done which confirmed i was low on iron as she had predicted. She wrote me an amazing in depth treatment plan, which included when and how to take my supplements with loads of tips & tricks on how to get the most out of them and include more into my diet. She also gave me loads of great recipes to cook to help with my iron intake.It has been over a month into treatment and i feel super energetic and full of life again. It was exactly what i needed to help get back to myself.I couldn’t recommend her enough. If you’re struggling with anything her in-depth knowledge in her field will help you.Thankyou camilla.read more
