Clare is the founder of Discover Chinese Medicine and has established the clinic as a centre with a focus on working with women’s health, and with both men and women in the area of fertility. Her practical problem solving approach to exploring your health concerns is designed to also bringing harmony to your mind and soul.
Clare decided to embark on a career in natural medicine when conventional medicine failed her. There were no answers as to why she couldn’t get well, doctors had no solutions for her, so she sought out an alternative approach. Clare’s health has been on the improve ever since, and she is now healthier in her late 30s than she has ever been.
Clare knows what is worth spending time, effort and money on, and what’s not. When you see Clare you see someone who has in depth education, extensive clinical experience, and someone who is unafraid to give her opinion on what she thinks is a waste of time and what she assesses to be the best way for you to heal yourself. She knows how hard it is to have symptoms that doctors don’t believe are real, and to have your illness dismissed as being all in your head.
Patients find their way to Clare seeking guidance for complex and ongoing problems that have been unsuccessfully treated by other health providers. She takes the time to understand her patients, looking thoroughly across everything that has been done before to ensure she helps you to find the most effective path forward.

Patients working with Clare embark on a highly customised health restoration program, with access to consultations with Clare via online, phone or face-to-face consults in the clinic in Richmond, Australia.
