Kim Lonergan 1

Kim Lonergan

Dietetics

What does one do with a menu of qualifications that reads Dietician, Nutritionist, Teacher and Lecturer, Media Production, a love of good cheese and a Paul Kelly song? She turns it into an inspiring recipe for caring for the health of others. Welcome to the world of Kim Lonergan. Passionate about helping people rediscover their love for food, Kim believes that uncomplicating information about food, replacing it with rich evidence-based education and specifics is the key to health. Mapping the path to optimized health restoration and balance is the critical driver for the Nutritionist, along with an individual-centric approach to health. The mother of 2 believes giving back to her community along with enjoying homegrown goodies is the way to growing smiles and healthy lives.

Sarah-Jayne Duryea

Sarah Hall

Psychology

Psychology is an incredible science and is a dynamic space. Sarah Hall has flourished. But the function of psychology in our daily lives and Sarah's ideology to normalise the process and make it readily accessible is what really makes this beloved confidante tick. Self-reflection in a collaborative setting can help empower people and lead them to experience breakthroughs, with thoughts and emotions no longer ruling our behaviours.

``We all have our unique blend of normal, and we can get in touch with our values and make meaningful changes in our lives`` is Sarah's motto. Educated at the University of Melbourne with her Psychology degree with an additional Honours Degree at Deakin and an extensive portfolio of further qualifications has been the solid foundation for her psychology practice, which is solidly forged in 17 + years of experience. WBHW welcomes Sarah to our practice!
