About Me

Thanks for taking the time to find out more about me. My name is Susan and I’m the owner of Kinesiology Affect. I’m a professional kinesiologist and qualified herbalist, passionate about helping people improve their health and change their lives for the better.



I spent the first 20 years of my working life employed in different roles in the corporate world and it wasn’t always an enjoyable experience. I worked in soul destroying jobs, some with people I just did not resonate with. Needless to say because I was often unhappy and stressed, it meant my health suffered too.


One day, after living for weeks with an annoying cough and chest congestion, I went to see a herbalist who put together a specific formula for my symptoms. After only one day of taking the mix, my cough was gone!  She inspired me to study Western Herbal Medicine.


Shortly after I qualified with my Advanced Diploma in Western Herbal Medicine I gave birth to my first child.  It was a very difficult and traumatic labour.  I went to see a kinesiologist who helped clear that trauma and I had one of those ‘wow’ moments where I understood the power of the mind when it comes to health and wellbeing.  This was the turning point for me. I became a massive fan and believer in the healing potential of kinesiology and went on to study the Diploma in Professional Kinesiology Practice (PKP).


The combination of kinesiology and herbal medicine allows me to help clients on many levels; physical, mental, emotional and for some clients, spiritual.


I really hope that one day our health system leans towards a more integrated model whereby general practice medicine works alongside natural therapies as both are valuable and play an important role in supporting and helping people achieve optimal health.

Susan’s knack at tapping into the emotional baggage is amazing. She finds a way to get to the core, and leaves you feeling much lighter than when you walked in.   Without a doubt, the techniques used by Susan have helped me come out the other side of my marriage break-up with a new energy and positive outlook for the future. Whether laughing or crying, there are no judgements made. Susan calmly leads you back to your best self, where balance is returned. I hope that more people take advantage of the amazing talent Susan has to offer.
