Wellbeing seems to be a huge focus in the world at the moment. But for our Founder, this has been the focus of her entire life. Having spent years going from Gastro-Enterologist, to ENT specialist, to Gynaecologist, to Urologist, to Nutritional Therapist, finally, a Functional Medicine Practitioner made sense of what was happening to her body…
We work collaboratively to restore health through personalised lifestyle and nutrition. We go further than merely looking at the ‘what’ in the diagnosis of illness, and instead, focus upon the much more important ‘why’ illness develops.
WE EXAMINE YOUR GENETICS, DIGESTION, HORMONES, AND LIFESTYLE, TO CUSTOMISE A UNIQUE SOLUTION FOR YOU BUILT ON THE FOUR PATHWAYS TO OPTIMAL LIVING – REST, Mindset, Nutrition and Movement
“In a relatively short time, Rae has made a big difference in my life. I was somewhat sceptical that I needed a health coach because I felt I “already knew” what I needed to do to optimise my health goals. Having said that, I decided to just be open to the process and go with the flow and now I am so happy and grateful that I did. Rae brings tremendous value as a health coach. She is very knowledgeable, non-judgemental, warm and generous in spirit. At the same time, she holds me accountable to my goals and provides the motivation, inspiration and hope that I need to be ultimately successful in meeting them. She has helped me to develop strategies that are designed to help me break lifelong bad habits and hone new healthy ones. I actually look forward to our weekly meetings because I always feel better after talking with her.”
“Raewyn was so easy to talk to! I looked forward to each and every session with her and cannot wait until our next chance to problem solve together! I am a therapist, so I am always on the other side of this…..helping people work through their problems! It was wonderful having Raewyn to help me consider my options, writing notes about our sessions and then holding me accountable for what I said I would do over the next week, and simply being there to offer another perspective! She really helped me to prioritize, set goals, and to work toward improved health and well-being! I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her and I am still reaping the rewards!! She doesn’t know this yet……..but she even has me considering starting to do online therapy!! Thanks, Raewyn!!!!”
“I was very skeptical about the whole (hypnotherapy) treatment and process, as I find it very hard to zone out. But Raewyn’s voice is so calm and soothing, I totally relaxed and was able to focus. She really helped me so much to achieve my goal of breaking my bad habit – so much so, I went back to her for some help with my fear of flying! She helped me get on a 12 seater propeller plane to make two flights of 1 hour each, in extremely turbulent conditions to achieve my dream of visiting the Grand Canyon. I’ve since flown 3 other times on a propeller and multiple long haul flights by myself, which I never though I would be able to do. She also made me two personal recordings which I still have and listen to on my iPod regularly! Raewyn and her therapies are the best, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her!”
“I came to Well Works after a period of stomach issues that was impacting my triathlon training and everyday life. With the biggest race of my season – Ironman 70.3 World Championships in South Africa – around the corner, the need to understand, address and resolve the problem was no small task given my time restraints! Dr Nathan Curran and the team were brilliant. Nathan understood the needs of me as an athlete and applied it accordingly. Having identified the causes of the problem he created a short term recovery plan to ensure I arrived in the best possible shape for my race.
The plan worked a dream and helped contribute towards securing 8th place in my age group at the 2018 World Champs. I have been amazed by the huge improvements I experienced in such a short period of time and is therefore a no brainer to continue with Well Works in to 2019 to get the most out of my training, racing and life!”
“Raewyn was instrumental for me at a stage of my life where I needed help for both my physical (skin issues) and mental health (depression and anxiety following major changes in work and relationships).
My first few sessions concentrated on the correct nutrition and sleeping patterns given my unique and long travel patterns for work.
After my physical health improved (dramatically might I add!) we then focused on mental health through CBT and hypnotherapy, which were both gentle and soothing. It helps when you have the gentle and calm voice of Raewyn in your head.
I now feel stronger and happier with my own self, and while I do have some rare flare-ups both physical and mental, I now have the tools to quickly settle down and self-manage my own stress and well-being. Thank you, Raewyn, for all your help!”.
“I had been in a bad place for a while, had tried different things but nothing seemed to work. Until someone recommended Raewyn and Well Works to me. She has helped me regain control over my thoughts and moods, understand the direction I want my life to take and find the drive to follow it, giving me invaluable advice to improve my eating and sleeping habits, and essentially made me feel like an optimised version of my old, happy self.
Raewyn is always really responsive and accommodating, and the user-friendly app makes the whole process so smooth. Extremely grateful to have come across such a talented, knowledgable and helpful therapist!”
“When I first met Rae, it is safe to say that I had reached ‘rock bottom’. I was experiencing extremely distressing thoughts, unable to sleep, and was suffering from weekly, sometimes daily, panic attacks that I felt paralyzed my day to day life. Rae was able to teach me techniques and small lifestyle changes, alongside wonderful meditation, that allowed me to take back control of my thoughts and each day in a way I didn’t think was possible. There were no drastic changes but Rae taught me how to manage my panic attacks in small stages – which now, a year later, means I haven’t had one in over 6 months. I felt (and continue to feel) like a different person, who found their ‘joy’ and love for life again in just 6 weeks of working with Rae and continue to use everything she taught me every day. I cannot thank her enough and am eternally grateful 🙏🏽”
“I had been going back and forth to the doctor’s for approximately 18 months, with a lot of different symptoms, all of which they couldn’t supply an answer as to why I was feeling the way I was.
I was feeling more and more unwell with no hope of any diagnosis so I decided to take a chance and sign up with Well Works. I don’t have a lot of spare income so was skeptical about spending the money I had, but decided I needed to do something. I’m so glad I did. Within a few weeks, I started to feel so much better.
I can’t say enough how grateful I am to Despina and Raewyn, as without them, I really worry about what would have happened to me.”
