Are you confident in clinical practice in the screening and assessing thyroid function?


The first three rounds of Level 1 Thyroid Practitioner Training were an astounding success! Due to popular demand, I am running another round starting soon.


Much of what we learnt at Uni did not prepare us for the complexity of the thyroid and its complex influence over many body systems and functions. With the increasing incidence of thyroid conditions on the rise, we as practitioners need to fully understand and comprehend thyroid pathophysiology so we can be the leaders in this field of thyroid and endocrine health.

  • Approximately 60,000 new cases of thyroid is diagnosed every year in Australia.

  • Thyroid disorders affect 10 times more women than men?

  • Hypothyroidism becomes more common with increasing age?

  • The incidence of children born with hypothyroidism has increased.

  • Iodine deficiency is very real in Australia which increases the incidence of goitre causing a swelling of the thyroid gland?

  • The incidence of thyroid disorders has increased from 13 million in 1965 to 20 million in 1995.

  • Thyroid cancer is the most common endocrine cancer. Thyroid cancer is a cancerous tumour or growth located within the thyroid gland.

  • Thyroid cancer is one of the few cancers that has increased in incidence rates over recent years. It occurs in all age groups from children through seniors.

  • The American Cancer Society estimates that there will be about 56,870 new cases of thyroid cancer in the U.S. in 2017. Of these new cases, about 42,470 will occur in women and about 14,400 will occur in men. About 2,010 people (1,090 women and 920 men) will die of thyroid cancer in 2017.

  • Learn how to clearly assess thyroid function

  • Recognise the many causes of thyroid dysregulation

  • Gain a comprehensive view of how thyroid affects the other organs and tissues

  • Understand how thyroid responds to other hormonal changes

  • Know how dysregulation of other systems causes compensation in thyroid activity

  • Receive clear protocols to identify contributors of thyroid dysfunction and how to repair these

  • 6 Modules over 6 weeks

  • Weekly Live training in a FB Level 1 practitioner training group

  • Videos, handouts, worksheets, and course notes to share with your thyroid patients.

  • Claimable CPE points - 12

  • Certificate on completion of the full course


  • Bonus lectures including:

    - How to safely and confidently prescribe iodine

    - Letter draft to GP's and specialists for thyroid testing

  • Bonus interview with Integrated GP Sarah Moore – holistic medical care and how to work with the medical system and thyroid health.

  • Bonus interview with Katie Randazzo - Physical examination of the thyroid in clinic

Next round starts 18th October 2021 - click the button below to join the waitlist

I am so looking forward to sharing my 25 years of clinical experience and working with hundreds of thyroid patients with you.

Thyroid Mentoring for Pracs

‘I had an influx of difficult thyroid patients and I felt a bit out my depth. I knew there were many aspects to consider but did not really know where to start. I talked to Tara about a few cases and she was amazing, gave me a great explanation of what I needed to look for in thyroid cases. I now feel a whole lot more confident in looking at thyroid cases in clinic and always know I can call on Tara to help me with any complex cases.'

Amanda Mullemeister / Naturopath, Eczema Specialist

“I was so surprised by the quality of content in Tara’s Thyroid course.  It was so well researched, professionally delivered, and she was really accommodating to all of the students throughout the whole course, including in the Facebook live sessions.  I see a tonne of thyroid clients, so really didn’t expect to learn as much as I did. I would highly recommend this course to all practitioners - from new grads to the most seasoned thyroid praccie.”

Rohan Smith / Nutritionist

"If you have an interest in treating thyroid conditions or want to feel confident identifying, treating and supporting patients with thyroid conditions, then you must do this course. Not only is this course packed with up to date information and research but Tara is incredibly generous with the detail she goes into treating the various presentations of thyroid conditions. Thank you so much Tara!"

"I have just completed Tara's Level 1 Thyroid Practitioner Training course and would have no problem in recommending to other practitioners. Thank you so much for all your hard work and effort in putting this course together, it was just brilliant and covered all the bases. It is such great value for content and extra resources received, easily understood and great to be able to follow up with questions and case studies in the group. I am feeling more confident and am looking forward to treating more clients with regards to thyroid problems"

"I just want to thank you for the course and the amazing amount of content you have supplied. Although I felt I knew quite a lot about the thyroid, I now have a new depth to my knowledge. I see a lot of thyroid clients and I feel so much more confident now that I have the right information needed to assist them."

"I absolutely loved this course as Tara shared her knowledge and expertise and tried and tested ways for us to support our thyroid clients effectively to better health. Thank you Tara. I highly recommend you do it . As someone who has experience with the debilitating hypothyroid issues of Hashimotos it has opened my eyes further to treating much more effectively."
