She has been attuned to level 2 Usui Reiki, and is a qualified Feng Shui practitioner, having completed a Certificate IV in Feng Shui and Geobiology at the Australian College of Environmental studies, which is at the forefront of environmental medicine in Australia, offering the most comprehensive Feng Shui course in Australia.

She has also undertaken residency training in MORA, one of the first forms of Bioresonance Therapy, and is a qualified RBTI analyst, using the Reams system of Biochemical Analysis in her clinical practice.

On top of this Ally has trained for many years under the guidance of Denny Johnson, the founder of Rayid iridology where she has gained extensive knowledge and understanding of the Rayid Iris and Birth Order systems.

Ally believes in a balance between the intuitive and the rationalist scientific, and understands the need for integrating both within the healing process. Her consultations aim to empower her clients, allowing them to take their health back into their own hands. Re-education is one of the key aspects of her approach. Ally also worked at Camberwell Health and Healing for many years (now closed).

Ally has been assisting people with their health and offering sound, practical and effective advice to her clients for many years in a results oriented manner. She regularly participates in ongoing professional development seminars to ensure access to the latest in scientific approaches to naturopathic therapies, and keeping abreast of new and exciting complementary medicines as they become available.

About

Jennie Teskey

 

 

Midwife, Counsellor and Mother of 2 Children

I was born at home in Richmond, SW London with a community midwife in attendance. My father still lives in this house and my midwife still lives in the area. My mother was a childbirth educator and founder member of the National Childbirth Trust, alongside Sheila Kitzinger. During my childhood, scores of pregnant women came in and out of the house for their classes which included psychoprophylaxis (breathing and relaxation), hence loads of cushions for me to jump on (when the classes weren’t being run!) This was certainly an early influence on my career choice.

During my nurse training at Kings College Hospital in London from 1979 to 1982 I spent 2 months in obstetrics and had my first experience of catching a baby. I absolutely loved it and applied for my midwifery training at The Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital in the West Country. It was an 18 month course which I started in 1985 (after a couple of years of travel and work around the world.)

In December 1987 I immigrated to Melbourne with my husband and 4 month old son Josh and after a few months of settling in I started work at Mitcham Private Hospital. I soon worked out that it was not possible to practice autonomously as a midwife through the hospital system. I was lucky enough to find out about an established GP homebirth practice and even luckier to get a job there.

Since 1988 I have attended nearly a thousand births, (600 at home) and I have also provided support for women choosing to birth their babies in hospital. The satisfaction I get from providing continuity of care is enormous. There are some families for whom I have attended 4 births and there are some women whose births I attended many years ago and they are now having their own babies. Perhaps my attendance at these births makes me a grand midwife!

I birthed at home in Warrandyte for my second son. My sons are now grown up and have left home. They are talented musicians and are in a band called The Teskey Brothers. My husband Rob has been tirelessly patient and supportive of my passion for midwifery and my on call lifestyle, for which I am eternally grateful.

I have completed a Master of Counselling at La Trobe University and I am now offering counselling for women who need to debrief their birth experience and for women who are experiencing transition to parenting issues or antenatal/ postnatal depression or anxiety. I am also available to counsel student midwives and midwives who are struggling working in an extremely stretched maternity care system.

In 2011 I became an Eligible Midwife, which means I have a medicare provider number so my clients can receive a rebate on their antenatal and postnatal care. I am also a shared care provider at The Women’s, Sunshine and The Mercy Hospitals, so for any women wishing to book into those hospitals, I can provide most of the antenatal care as an alternative to seeing a GP. I am able to order blood tests and ultrasound scans and have completed an online prescribing course at Flinders University, South Australia as a part of the requirement for Midwife Eligibility.

I am not taking any primary bookings for births and instead concentrating on antenatal care and education, postnatal care and counselling. I will however help out with births in the practice when the other midwives are busy.

I am a member of:

  • Midwives in Private Practice
  • Maternity Coalition
  • Australian College of Midwives
  • Australian Privately Practising Midwives Association

About Naturopathy

 

 

Naturopathy is a system of natural therapies which recognise the existence of a vital curative force within the body.

The origins of naturopathy can be traced to ancient Greece. Hippocrates, the “Father of modern medicine” once said “Nature is the healer of all disease” In his holistic view he recognised the body, mind and spirit linked to four elements (air, water, fire, earth) of the natural world. This organism that is body, mind and spirit is an amazing self repairing machine, given the appropriate conditions. The role of the naturopathic healer is to facilitate this process through teaching the natural way of life which advocates fresh air, pure water, wholesome foods and exercise to promote and maintain optimum wellbeing. Nature Cure is based upon these principles. Although the trials and tribulations of modern living have given rise to a contemporary naturopathy enabling us to adapt to the less than desirable conditions of the stressful modern world. The contemporary Naturopath draws on both an understanding of Western health science and traditional healing methods to treat a wide range of health conditions.

 

Naturopathic Code of Ethics

 

 

The Naturopath’s primary purpose is to restore, maintain and optimise health in human beings by following these six principles of Naturopathic Medicine.

  • A Naturopath shall endeavour to first, do no harm; to provide the most effective health care available with the least risk to his/her patients at all times. (Primum Non Nocere)
  • A Naturopath shall recognise, value and promote the vital self-healing power of nature inherent in each individual. (Vis Medicatrix Naturae)
  • A Naturopath shall strive to identify and remove the causes of illness, rather than to merely eliminate or suppress symptoms. (Tolle Causum)
  • A Naturopath shall endeavour to educate his or her patients, inspire rational hope and encourage self-responsibility for health. (Doctor as Teacher)
  • A Naturopath shall treat each person by considering all individual health factors; the mind, body and spirit of the individual. (Treat the Whole Person)
  • A Naturopath shall support the condition of health to promote well-being and to prevent disease for the individual, each community and our world. (Health Promotion, Prevention is Best)
