Volunteering.. it’s free, it’s fun and it’s fulfilling!
One of the proudest moments I’ve had this year was when I was a volunteer doctor for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. It allowed me to meet new people and engage with different cultures as well as provide a beneficial service.
We’re so lucky, in Queensland there are some great initiatives out there that are desperately in need of volunteers. From being a Bunnings BBQ volunteer, to Christmas gift wrapper for the Leukaemia Foundation, to volunteering for the Cerebral Palsy League’s upcoming show, there’s plenty out there!
Whether it’s an hour of your time, or a weekend, by volunteering you get the opportunity to socialise with new people as well as lending a helping hand. All of which feel very satisfactory and leave a positive impact on mental health.

A lot can be achieved with dermal filler, a cannula and an artistic eye!
This lovely patient wanted to start her cosmetic journey by addressing her lower face lines. In the treatment I used a cannula (blunt plastic thin tube) to strategically place the filler along her lower face.
Cannulas reduce the number of injection entry points and so causes less bruising and is more comfortable.
This patient only had 1ml of filler but you can already see a big difference.
Needless to say, she’ll be back for more!
If you have any questions or would like to book yourself in for a treatment pop by and see me in clinic.

Did you know that condoms aren’t as effective as the pill or coil?
Recent research has shown that women aged 16-24 years are more likely to only use barrier contraception, which can lead to unplanned and unwanted pregnancies, and can cause emotional turmoil.
Keeping up to date with new evidence and research is a vital part of my job as a General Practitioner. There are plenty of safe and reliable forms of birth control, if you would like more information please do come by and see me in clinic. Remember, although condoms may not be the best in birth control they are the best are reducing the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases.
I just love the outcome of anti-wrinkle treatment, so satisfying! 👌
This patient previously had a bad experience elsewhere with anti-wrinkle treatment to her forehead. She had developed forehead heaviness which can happen if too much product is used or if it’s placed too low.
After seeing me for her treatment she had no such symptoms and was feeling as great as she looked!
It’s always important to go to an experienced certified practitioner when considering any cosmetic treatment.
Anti-wrinkle therapy is a quick and easy way to minimise the signs of ageing. With optimal results at 2 weeks and treatment lasting 3-5 months, you can carry on being expressive without the lines!
