Crystel Poggioli - Occupational Therapist, GAPS Practitioner

  • Bachelor of Occupational Therapy, First Class Honours, University Medal
  • Certified Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) Practitioner
Crystel has been a Paediatric Occupational Therapist for over 20 years. With a wealth of experience, including Royal Children’s Hospital, Brisbane; the inclusive education system in Vancouver, Canada; and working within schools and health services from Cardwell to Cooktown, Crystel has a strong foundation that she brings into her private practice.  Crystel established The Whole Child - Therapy Services in 2011 and has been providing holistic services to children and families ever since. 

Natural health solutions have long been a passion for Crystel. She raises her own 6 children using simple, natural health solutions and is a strong support for families seeking natural alternatives for their child’s difficulties. This keen interest led Crystel to train with Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride to become a Certified GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) Practitioner. Crystel utilises GAPS related strategies in her practice where relevant, and finds these strategies pair well to magnify the benefits of traditional occupational therapy techniques.

Crystel has strong networks within medical, allied health, natural health and education communities and is highly respected among her colleagues
