Let’s take a medical approach to weight loss

Why is it difficult to lose weight and keep it off?

It’s more complex than eating less and moving more. Let’s take a medical approach to weight loss.

After weight loss, your body will try to gain back the weight you lost by making you feel hungrier, and by burning fewer calories. While you are working hard to lose the weight with diet and exercise, your body is working against you. This is where prescription medicines may help.

How does it work?

For people living with obesity, losing weight causes changes in the levels of hormones that affect appetite.

With health coaching and support, complimented with practitioner-prescribed medication you can reduce hunger and increase satisfaction. The prescribed medication is 97% similar to a natural hormone that is released in the body after eating, making you feel full and satisfied. The result? You eat less.

What to expect

Initial 1 hour consultation

Physical Assessment

In your initial assessment we’ll record your blood pressure, weight, height and BMI and discuss what you can expect from the program. We may also map your body composition, including body fat, muscle mass, protein mass and metabolic rate.


We’ll also review your medical and weight history and identify any events that may have impacted weight loss, such as trauma, stress or habits. At this point we’ll determine your suitability for the prescribed medication.

Your tailored program



The prescribed medication acts like the natural hormone, triggering areas in your brain that control appetite, making you feel more satisfied and less hungry.

Goal Setting


Learn how to set goals and make a start. Weight loss of about 5-10% of your starting body weight may be achieved when following the weight management program.

Meal Planning


Medication is just one part of your weight loss journey. To have a successful start and maximise the impact of your treatment, you should follow a healthy eating plan.



The program includes regular appointments to check-in and ensure consistency. It’s about losing the weight and then keeping it off in the long term.

I understand talking about weight is confrontational and emotionally challenging. I’m here to support you through the journey.

I’ve been a Registered Nurse for over 20 years, with my experience including educational roles within Emergency Departments and tertiary institutions. Together we will build you a clinically supervised weight loss program supported by prescribed medication and counselling. As a Nurse Practitioner I can also provide prescriptions, pathology requests and referrals to other health professionals as required. It’s important to recognise that hormones and genetics play a considerable role in weight management, it’s not all behavioural. I look forward to welcoming you into the clinic soon.
