Process of Working with me

Cathryn Costa is a well trusted and highly regarded Acupuncturist, Naturopath & Midwife who has successfully supported hundreds of women and couples through general health and wellbeing, IVF, natural fertility, birth and beyond

An Appointment with Cathryn can be via telehealth, zoom or in person at the clinic. We dive deep to gain an understanding of your health and wellbeing.

Some people book for Acupuncture, some Naturopathy and some both. More information can be found via the book an appointment link.

We have separate Fertility consults as a lot of information and research is gathered and given during the initial consult specific to your individual needs as a couple.

Cathryn’s consultations are time dependant with initial consultations lasting 1 hour for individuals and 2 hours for couples. Follow up appointments vary depending on what is required to best treat your condition and will be discussed at your initial consult.

What can I expect after the consult/ treatment?

Everyone’s response to treatment is different.  Most of my clients after acupuncture leave feeling relaxed, informed and either sleep better or have more energy. However, the greatest benefits are noted after each consecutive treatment over a period of time.

Some conditions may be acute and respond extremely well with a single treatment, however if the issue is chronic, it may take a little longer to feel benefits. 

Generally, the longer you have had the issue the longer it may take to treat.

Each Individual responds differently to treatment, thus depending upon the condition/s, will depend upon the time it will take to heal and be all you can be.

Fee Structure

Cathryn’s fee structure reflects her expertise, education, professional standards and qualifications. With respect to the time taken to complete tasks outside of appointments, any telephone advice or paperwork required will incur a fee and will be charged as per the hourly rate. This includes, email consultations, treatment plan modifications, letters, reports etc. You will be contacted to ensure your approval is given and fee paid prior to beginning the work.
