I’m constantly expanding my knowledge. And hey, the learning never stops – there’s always something new to discover!

Dr Ala Farah

General Practitioner, Lifestyle & Holistic Medicine Doctor

I am a dedicated General Practitioner, Lifestyle & Holistic Medicine Doctor with over 15 years of clinical experience. I am deeply committed to providing compassionate healthcare and consider it a privilege to play a role in the lives of individuals seeking healthcare.

As a mother, a wife, and someone who juggles the demands of a full-time career, I understand what it’s like to often have your health needs take a back seat. Having been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, a hormonal condition, and vestibular migraines, I quickly became frustrated with the traditional medication-only approach. I embarked on my own health and weight loss journey to find the solutions to optimise my health and wellbeing.

I have immersed myself in learning about lifestyle medicine and am currently working
towards a fellowship in the field. And I am a staunch advocate for incorporating a holistic and lifestyle-based approach to managing chronic health conditions. Recognizing that health is more than the absence of disease, I strive to merge conventional medicine with holistic approaches for comprehensive patient well-being.

My expertise extends to Bariatric Care, where I focus on supporting patients in their weight management journey. I am driven by the belief that a tailored, multidisciplinary approach is essential for long-term success.

My commitment to continuous learning aligns with my dedication to empowering patients. Together, let’s navigate the challenges of chronic health conditions and build a healthier, more resilient community.


Carmen Van Straalen

Reiki Master and Life Coach

Carmen is a Reiki Master|Teacher, certified Holistic Life Coach, and currently pursuing certification as an aromatherapist. Witnessing the detrimental effects of stress, she made it her mission to guide others towards equilibrium through Reiki. “My clients often arrive fatigued and overwhelmed, but after an hour of Reiki, they depart rejuvenated. I cultivate a secure, nurturing space where they can rediscover serenity and harmony.”

Reiki, a Japanese relaxation technique dating back to the early 20th century, combines “rei,” meaning universal, with “ki,” denoting the energy inherent in all living beings. Practitioners harness this energy, transmitting it through their hands to gently touch the recipient’s body. This tactile method aims to dissolve energy blockages, trigger the body’s innate healing mechanisms, and induce profound relaxation and inner tranquility. Often utilized alongside conventional medical practices, Reiki offers a holistic approach to fostering balance and alignment across the mind, body, and spirit.

The Benefits of Reiki span various realms:

  • Mental: Reiki fosters inner peace, equilibrium, and emotional wellness, enhancing focus, decision-making, and self-awareness.
  • Physical: Reiki aids in improving sleep patterns, alleviating fatigue and pain, boosting the immune system, reducing blood pressure, and facilitating natural self-healing processes.
  • Emotional: Reiki supports emotional well-being, alleviating depression, anxiety, stress, and tension, while enhancing self-esteem, self-love, and confidence.
  • Spiritual: Reiki dissolves energy barriers, balances chakras, promotes spiritual growth, and enhances psychic, intuitive, and creative capacities.

Carmen eagerly welcomes individuals on their wellness journey, extending her guidance to both new and returning clients.
