Henrietta Chang was born in Helsinki, Finland and attended the University of Geneva in Switzerland for her undergraduate degree in Biology with a focus on Biochemistry, Immunology and Botany. She moved to Australia in 1998 to complete a Masters of Applied Science in Townsville and later obtained a Bachelors Degree of Naturopathy at Southern Cross University in Lismore where she was awarded top of the class for excellence in the area of Nutrition.Henrietta has many years’ experience as a complementary health practitioner (since 2001), and has a special interest in the care of medically complex patients using the combined modalities of Naturopathy and Nutritional Biochemistry. To complement this, Henrietta is also a qualified practitioner of Remedial Massage and body work modalities. More recently Henrietta has completed her Diploma of Counselling through Evolve College – after many years in clinical practice and finding how important and relevant counselling skills are in supporting in all areas of life, she knew that this was the next inevitable step to achieve the qualification and officially offer counselling sessions. In addition to her clinical practice, Henrietta serves as a trainer, assessor and program writer for Evolve College where she teaches the Diploma course in Remedial Massage.  She has also worked with Southern Cross University as a course writer and lecture assistant. Most importantly, Henrietta combines her considerable knowledge and experience with unwavering dedication and deep care to her clients and the wider community.  She brings authority and attentiveness that leaves “no stone unturned” when working with clients and often works closely with doctors, medical specialists, psychologists, other counsellors and physiotherapists to ensure the highest level of care for her patients. Henrietta enjoys spending time at home with her husband, son and dog, whom she respectuflly uses as test subjects for her experimental food and herbal tincture/tea recipes.  She is also involved in various community groups and donates her time and expertise to women’s health groups offering support in aged and palliative care, and cooking/nutrition forums.  Henrietta also enjoys having a chat with visitors to her clinic in one of 5 languages!
