My name is Monique. I am a clinical psychologist and mum to 3 beautiful young children. I also have a post graduate diploma in nutritional medicine for mental health and am currently enrolled in a Doctor of Health. Our house is gluten, dairy, additive and refined sugar free (and mostly grain free too) and I have personally been gluten and dairy free (except goats milk products) for over 14 years to manage Crohn’s disease. We also use all natural cleaning products (for us and the house!). Before starting this new way of eating I rarely set foot in the kitchen and didn’t know how to bake anything that didn’t come out of a packet. Now I make most things from scratch and love it!
My other interests include reading, yoga, handstands and aerial silks. I love a good vampire story and can’t get by without dark chocolate. In my clinical work my main area of interest is the treatment of trauma and trying to bring trauma-informed care to the public mental heath system.
Welcome to my page about joining the worlds of psychology and nutrition to create a happier, healthier life for yourself. Please read my post: Hello World! for more detailed information about me and how I got to be The Nourished Psychologist!
