Cath Lilburn

Naturopathic Herbalist

Empowering patients for 25 years 

Reach out if you would like to work with me to create a holistic health care plan that is grounded in in a combination of traditional & evidence based practice.

Meet Cath Lilburn

Naturopathic Herbalist

Cath has been in practice for 25 years helping people’s physical and emotional wellbeing and is passionate about empowering people with their health care. She is a Herbalist who is grounded in a complementary, best of both worlds approach to healing, which means she does what is best for each person she sees and works in conjunction with orthodox medicine.


Cath originally completed a Bachelor Economics/Bachelor Arts (honours) at the ANU in Canberra before jumping headlong into the natural healthcare field. She finished an apprenticeship at a Canberra clinic while studying a Diploma of Herbal medicine with Dorothy Hall. In 1998 she moved with her husband to Newcastle and worked at a multidisciplinary practice while he completed his Medical degree. 


In 2003 Cath moved to Wollongong & set up a home-based practice which offers patients a calm and tranquil clinic environment. Cath also offers Telehealth (Zoom and phone) consultations for clients who do not live locally or require a flexible style of consultation.


Cath is committed to ongoing education and regularly attends conferences and seminars. In 2018 Cath completed a course on Integrative support for people with cancer taught by American Naturopathic Oncologist Lise Alschuler. Over the years she has supported people with a cancer diagnosis as an adjunct to conventional oncology treatment.

Cath graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine Management (with professional honours in Complementary Medicine) through the Dept of Pharmacy at University of Tasmania in 2021. 


Cath has a particular interest in breast cancer support and had a paper published on this topic in the NHAA journal in 2022. Her article 'Medicinal mushrooms (specifically Reishi mushroom) as an adjuvant treatment in breast cancer' was a finalist in the NHAA journal article of the year.

Cath also enjoys empowering women on the perimenopausal journey & beyond.


In her downtime Cath loves swimming, walking on the beach, yoga, pilates and meditation. She also loves exploring this incredible planet when given the opportunity!

Catherine is a very caring and compassionate practitioner. She listens carefully to what I have to say and provides me with the necessary tonics and supplements to help me. She is very professional and interprets blood test results to tweak what she prescribes me.
