The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.
Who are we
We are a team of health professionals who are passionate about what we do and about the health of our clients.
What sets us apart is that we have all experienced ill health prior to our chosen careers, and we use these personal experiences to both fuel our passion to help other people, and also as a way to understand and empathise with our clients as they are going through their own journey to health.
Each of us have our own strengths and skill set, but we all share the same holistic view of health. We believe that health isn’t achieved by just doing one specific thing, but through a change in diet and lifestyle, and honouring the connection between mind and body.

After struggling for years with crippling anxiety, GIT issues and way too many rounds of antibiotics, finding Colonic Hydrotherapy was a massive breakthrough towards Joh’s personal health and wellbeing. She had such incredible results and was so keen to share her wisdom, she decided to study and become certified as a Colonic Hydrotherapist.
Joh is extremely passionate about helping people get healthy and well and brings to the clinic an abundance of determination, attention to detail and most importantly empathy as she’s been on a similar journey.
Sam has always suffered from food sensitivities and IBS symptoms but she had just learnt to deal with them or more specifically- ignore them.
At some point she fell extremely sick with Glandular Fever and it was then she realised she needed to take matters into her own hands.
She delved deep into the practice of yoga and has since completed a couple of teacher trainings. In studying the practice of yoga she developed an understanding of energy and how it affects us in ways we can only attempt to comprehend.
She then began studying a bachelor in health science specifically designed towards Naturopathy and added Colonic Hydrotherapy to her learnings which enabled her to support her clients on many levels at pH Clinic.
Liz is a long time client and friend of pH Clinic, now Colonic Hydrotherapist.
Liz brings a wealth of knowledge about holistic health and in particular Chronic Illness. Her relatability, understanding and patience is what sets her apart and we just know you’ll love her!
Liz studied Graphic Design at University however she always knew it just wasn’t her true passion…
I was first introduced to Colon Hydrotherapy when searching for answers to health issues I’d been experiencing for many years. Chronic constipation, food intolerances, parasites, adult acne, gas, bloating and low mood set me on a mission to heal my body.
The first lesson for me was ‘food is medicine’ – I adopted nutrition and exercise principles into my life that made a big difference.
I then completed a Diploma of Nutritional Medicine (ACNT Sydney) and through my studies learned what an essential player the gut is to physical & mental health and overall wellbeing. But even when eating well and exercising, I still battled with chronic constipation. It was finding Colonic Hydrotherapy that was the missing piece of the health puzzle for me.
Clearing away old toxicity from my body has taken my health to a whole new level. It’s made such a huge difference to my life that I knew I wanted to support others on their gut health journey. I’ve been having colonics myself for over 6 years, and completed my Colon Hydrotherapy training in 2019.
Hayley is a Naturopath and also a mum of 2 young boys – so understands the juggle of busy family life and how this can impact your health. Hayley has completed a Bachelor of Applied Science (Naturopathic studies) and a Post Graduate diploma of Naturopathy in 2007 and has worked in clinical practice ever since. She now many years experience in supporting her patients through all aspects of a healthy family life and treats women, men, babies, kids and adolescents. While she treats all health issues, she has a special interest in gut health (including IBS, constipation, inflammatory bowel diseases, bloating and reflux) as well as women’s health, pregnancy, fertility and hormones. Her current obsession is helping mums! There are so many mums out there with young kids who are struggling to juggle their family, social and working life. And as a result are depleted, exhausted, run down, gaining weight, sleeping poorly, anxious, suffering from brain fog, headaches and have poor immunity. Helping mums to feel like their old selves again by focusing on their own health and wellness regimes is such a privilege.
Aimee is a qualified Naturopath with a Bachelor of Health science in Naturopathy. She has a passion for women’s, and children’s health, especially digestive disorders, endocrine disorders, and mental health. But this is not all she sees in the clinic.
Aimee started her naturopathic journey after experiencing first hand just how essential herbal medicine and nutrition are when it comes to optimum health. She was diagnosed with an Autoimmune condition called Graves disease at the age of 18, which resulted in a full thyroidectomy. This raised many questions as to why this happened and how it could have been prevented, and her love for preventative medicine blossomed from there. Aimee is a mum of three wonderful girls, who have been the perfect teachers (and students) when it comes to children’s health and the obstacles that families face in those early years.
Aimee’s aim is to help you find ‘the why?’ using a holistic approach to health with the aim of finding the root cause of illness, supporting your body in its ability to heal itself, and then optimising your well being. This includes herbal medicine, homeopathy, nutrition, lifestyle changes, education and functional testing when customising your wellness plan.
Ali left a high-pressure job in finance to study complementary medicine after seeing a Naturopath for her own health issues. She was inspired by how she was able to regain control of her stress levels, hormones and immune system, and became increasingly curious about how many more options there were available to people with chronic illnesses than were being offered.
Her focus is embracing the latest scientific research about the body’s biochemical pathways and combining this with thousands of years of traditional knowledge about complementary and alternative medicine. This may include diet and lifestyle modifications, herbal medicines and nutritional supplements, each individualised to every patient to ensure changes are achievable and sustainable, thereby empowering you to take control of your health and wellness.

Doctor of Physiotherapy, Sports & Exercise Scientist
Deb studied Physiotherapy at the University of Sydney and has been in private practice on the Northern Beaches for over 12 years. Deb’s love for movement and the body started in her teens as a full-time dance student in Sydney and then in Melbourne with the Australian Ballet School.
Deb has completed many post-grad courses, but the ConnectTherapy™ approach by Dr LJ Lee re-shaped the way she sees the body. In this approach, finding the driver of the non-optimal movement and pain is most important. Treatment is shaped on restoring this function and re-training. Deb is also a Pilates Practitioner and teaches on Polestar Rehab Education courses in Australia.
Currently, her work is split across three domains: private and confidential sessions with clients at pH Clinic; facilitating groups at one of Sydney’s leading private hospitals; and, as the founder of Future Culture, she supports corporate businesses and other organisations with Wellness and Employee Assistance Programs (EAP).
Abbey is the Clinic Manager here at pH. She is currently studying to become a Naturopath and has been obsessed with all things surrounding natural health since she was 12 when she saw her health radically change through the guidance of an integrative doctor.

pH Team Testimonials
"I had my first experience with colonic hydrotherapy with the lovely Johanna. I had 3 sessions as suggested for my first time to get the best outcome. I can honestly say this has changed my life. Johanna was supportive, communicative and gentle the entire time. This has helped my bloating, stomach pains, naughty food cravings, no signs of premenstrual dysphoric disorder and little to no cramps. My anxiety is nowhere to be seen and I have even increased my productivity at work with no afternoon slump. Would highly recommend!!"
My first experience with pH Clinic was amazing! I booked for a hydrotherapy and infrared sauna package. I would have been a mess of nerves but Samantha talked me through it the whole time and made me feel 100% comfortable. Now I know that gut health is complex, super important and I’m ready to keep doing the work to reverse all those years of damage. I didn’t think twice before booking my next appointment! Will gladly drive 45 mins to this cosy little store because these girls are the BEST.
"I didn’t realise how rundown I was feeling on a daily basis until I started to feel better. I didn’t realise how toxic I was! The education I received from Nicola was fascinating and logical. I must say I was nervous at first but the process was easy and clean. Not embarrassing at all. The benefits outweigh any embarrassment factor! Colonics are must for everyone! Thank you for giving me back my spark!"
