INTEGRATIVE & HOLISTIC GENERAL PRACTITIONERS

 

Dr. Fiona Enkelmann

MBBS FRACGP MPH IYS Therapy

Completing a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery (MBBS) at the University of Melbourne in 2004, then undertaking her residency years in Geelong Hospital, Fiona focused on generalist training in preparation for volunteer work in Africa in 2007. In 2008, she commenced training in Emergency Medicine at the Royal Darwin Hospital and after successfully passing exams decided a career change was necessary. In 2010, she switched to General Practice training and then graduated with a Fellowship of General Practice in 2012. Fiona completed a Masters of Public Health in 2014 and actively engages in continual professional development. To compliment her conventional practice, she is also undertaking further training in nutrition and environmental medicine, including study with the Australian College of Nutrition and Environmental Medicine. She has completed training in Biobalance and MAPS training with MINND Foundation.

Fiona's experience extends to patients of diverse backgrounds in remote and community health centres in Australia, Nepal and Africa. In doing this work, she realised that wellness and good health is connected to our psychological and spiritual wellbeing. Her consultation style enables patients to be actively involved in the decision making process, as she is passionate about supporting and inspiring patients to reach their chosen wellbeing goals. This is achieved through an offering of longer consultations that integrate conventional medicine and counselling, incorporating cognitive behavioural therapy, goal setting, mind body techniques, and emotional based therapies.

Fiona also teaches meditation, utilising her training in energy medicine and spiritual therapies. She has been an accredited Ignite Your Spirit (an Energy Medicine based counselling technique) therapist for the past 5 years, running meditation sessions for health professionals at the Royal Children’s Hospital,CoHealth (Collingwood) and OVAHS Aboriginal Medical Service. Additionally, she teaches comprehensive self-care and well-being courses, incorporating practical stress management techniques.
