The team at The Family Apothecary aim to nurture your mind, body and spirit through classical and intuitive homeopathy. Homeopathy is a unique modality that can address your symptoms whether you are struggling with a physical ailment, or you have an emotional or spiritual concern. We always meet you where you are at and our goal is to support and balance your vital force (also known as Chi or Prana or life force). At The Family Apothecary, clients are not classified according to their “diagnosis”. Instead, an individual approach is tailored for all children and women that come to the clinic.
Sarah Valentini, the director of The Family Apothecary, has a keen interest in helping families using isopathy, tautopathy, nutritional advice and homeopathy for Autism, PANDAS, ADHD as well as the anxiety and depression that can affect children in these conditions, and has helped hundreds of families over her years in practice.
Sarah and Liz have a special interest in working in an integrated model with autism, PANDAS/PANS, ADHD and sensory processing disorder. Tantrums, rage and behavioural concerns also fall under this banner; these may be able to be supported with homeopathic remedies for aggression and homeopathy for autism.We understand the stresses that these conditions place on a family and address these in consultations. The whole family needs to feel supported.
As our modern world contributes heavily to deteriorating states of health, we also specialise in detoxification of heavy metals, drugs and toxins that may be having a negative effect on your overall health. Gut health treatment is also very important and addressing all aspects of the gut and food sensitivities supports clients in moving forward on their healing journey.
Women’s health is also an area of interest for Sarah, especially perimenopause and menopause, PCOS and endometriosis. She has gone on to host webinars and train other practitioners in the homeopathic approach to perimenopause and menopause. Sarah prescribes homeopathic remedies and gives nutritional advice for perimenopause and menopause , hormonal imbalance homeopathy, and other treatments to help women, and especially mothers of children with complex health conditions, who often become worn out looking after their families.
Healing from disease does not just involve resolution of the physical aspect of a particular disease state, but it can be a deep spiritual journey for many. We aim to support the evolution of the spirit which often also needs to be aligned with the higher self. Homeopathy can touch these deeper aspects of healing, which is what makes it such a profound system of medicine. When we work intuitively, we can access the deeper sensations, trauma, fears or wounding and find a remedy to alleviate these symptoms. We invite all of our clients to participate and step into this safe container with us, which can involve using breath work and meditation to get to the root cause of ill health.
If you have a child with Autism, PANDAS/PANS, ADHD you can listen to the podcasts that Sarah creates alongside other homeopaths Angelica Lemke and Bridget Biscotti Bradley.

Highly recommended. Sarah is a life saver. With her knowledge and caring nature we feel like we have finally found a health care provider that we can trust, who has our whole family interest at heart, who’s willing to work with our personality, temperament and disposition. Thank you Sarah, we are so blessed to have found you.Ervina - Australia
I began taking my son for consultations with Sarah about six months ago. He was suffering with severe anxiety, hyperactivity and chronic digestive problems. Having already seen several different therapists, without any improvement, I was feeling almost that this was my last resort. I'm so happy to see the tremendous improvement in his health that Sarah has been able to facilitate. She's incredibly knowledgeable and thorough in her approach and her obvious experience as a practitioner enabled me to have complete trust in her competency. She is also very perceptive of the complexity of a situation, seeing into the subtle, underlying patterns of a clients condition. I have also been seeing her, during this time, for my own physical and mental health concerns, which have improved dramatically. Sarah is so incredibly generous with the time and energy that she invests in her clients and I have such a deep appreciation for her. She is an outstanding practitioner. Seeking her expertise is one of the best choices I have made for the health of my family.Gurudaya - Australia
I took my 3.5 year old son to Sarah a couple of months ago. He had severe stomach issues, recurrent colds and fevers, and ear issues for months. Traditional medicine didn't offer any solutions at all other than a 'wait-and-see' approach and, unfortunately, one homeopath that we saw prior to Sarah was also of little help. During all that time my child kept suffering. From the very first consultation with Sarah it was clear that she knew what she was doing and I was so relieved to feel that my son will be finally helped. Sarah is very professional and at the same time you can see how much she genuinely cares, which is quite a rare quality to find in medical field nowadays. The great amount of questions she asked and her very thorough approach meant that she was able to find the exact cures for his issues within a very short period of time, for which me and my son and our whole family are extremely grateful. She really goes out of her way to ensure that the patient gets the best possible care. And she is always an absolute pleasure to deal with.M.G - Rosanna
I’ve been to Sarah a few times over the years, more recently to get some help over changes in my body and mental health during my peri-menopause period. A holistic practitioner that is curious, listens and follows through is the best way to describe Sarah - my hormones are levelled I’m no longer “suffering” but also have a deeper understanding with what is happening to my body. I highly recommend Sarah who is truly a patient, caring and thoughtful practitioner.Maria - Melbourne
I initially sought out homeopathic treatment after a recommendation from a lovely stranger in a park. Both my daughters and I have now been seeing Sarah for a couple of years. Our visits with Sarah have provided me with a greater appreciation for homeopathic treatment and it’s whole of person approach. Sarah is thorough and passionate about helping both myself and my daughters. We have been treated for a range of different things and she has left no stone unturned, with quite remarkable results. We moved interstate a few months ago and we still meet with Sarah via video link because she is now a regular fixture in our lives!Lisa - Canberra
Sarah is an exceptional homeopath. She has treated three generations within our family. She is genuinely interested in understanding your complaint and prescribes remedies with great care and expertise. My 3 year old daughter and I have experienced great results and I can't imagine not having had Sarah to support us with our physical and emotional health over the last year.Sascha - Australia
Sarah has extensive knowledge and skills in homeopathy. She is genuinely, warm, caring and diligent in treating the individual holistically. Sarah is exceptionally perceptive and has treated my constitutional needs with great success. She has made a huge difference to my confidence, health and wellbeing. I will continue to see Sarah as my primary practitioner.Mary - Australia
Sarah has been a great help to our whole family (including my two young children). She has helped improve our general health, and helped with preventing and treating seasonal illnesses and allergic reactions. Sarah us always ready to listen and affirm; she is an excellent listener, empathetic, helpful in a gentle way, and encouraging. She is quick to respond to messages, but I never feel like she is in a rush. We have been very fortunate to find such a kind and helpful practitioner.Heidi - Australia
My family and I have been seeing Sarah for the last three years. She is amazing! She genuinely cares for her clients, and there’s always follow up which is so important. She is extremely generous, intuitive, a wonderful practitioner and a lovely person. We have had such positive results from her treatment and care.Anne-Maree - Australia
First of all, I want to tell you how much you are helping my kids. I am sooooo grateful!! It feels so amazing to be so supported. I had years of worry and now I finally feel like I am getting somewhere. Thank you, thank you! I feel so lucky to get to work with Sarah and see all the benefits of homeopathy!! She got my children back to their confident and happy state of being!! It’s support I have needed for years. Sarah (and homeopathy) really looks at the idiosyncrasies of each person so it can truly heal in a unique way.Jenny - US
Sarah Valentini has always been very thorough, professional and compassionate. I have sincerely felt safe and cared for during our appointments and outside of them. I have seen exemplary results from her treatment and care.Mathilde - Australia
Sarah is an insightful practitioner who took the time to listen and create the perfect remedy for my 4 year old daughter. We were so relieved to see an immediate resolve to her symptoms, having been dismissed by conventional medical practitioners previously. She is wise, kind and generous, and I have no hesitation in recommending her services.Rebecca - Australia
I first contacted Sarah on the back of a recommendation by a friend. She was very approachable and helpful, even before we had our first appointment. When we met, she asked a lot of questions and I really felt like she was taking the time to learn as much as possible about my daughter. I didn’t feel rushed at all which was very comforting. The remedies we started for my daughter, who was battling anger issues since the birth of her baby brother, made a huge difference within a couple of weeks. Sarah has helped my child and even more so our family. Our child is back to her happy and quirky self and we are not facing the constant risk of screaming and anger anymore. It seems she has found her calm and is able to communicate and work through her feelings better. Thank you Sarah.Kathy - Australia
Seeing Sarah has made a huge positive difference in my life. I have overcome many difficult health issues and been treated with dignity, respect and kindness. I have gained flexibility and freedom in my lifestyle from the improved health I have gained. I have been delighted by the results of using Homeopathy and believe it to be vital to my ongoing wellbeing.Ros - Australia
Sarah has successfully treated my 2 children for behavioural, skin and also sleep issues. She has a kind and caring nature, but is also very thorough and professional.Jasmine - Australia
My family and I are so grateful to have Sarah in our lives. The first appointment with Sarah is like a therapy session where Sarah provides you with the opportunity to really open up to all of your life traumas, which seem to create the blueprint for our personal health issues. I found this part of the therapy, very effective at releasing some of the pains which were causing my issues. From there Sarah will provide you with one or two remedies which further deepen the healing process at home. Sarah is always there, via email or mobile to help out if and when things get rocky. We have found Sarahs' availability to be extremely valuable, when you need professional guidance 'on the go', especially with young children who seem to change so quickly. To say the treatment has helped me is a massive understatement, as it has been life changing. I only wish I had met Sarah earlier!Jake - Australia
Sarah is an incredibly insightful and intuitive healer who has led me through an amazingly transformative healing process. Compassionate, wise and caring, I recommend her to anyone and everyone who is looking for a classical Homeopath.Bronwyn - Australia
I was in contact with my many specialists, to no avail. It wasn’t until I met with Sarah, I began to see the changes in my overall wellbeing. I see the value in homeopathy beyond the advice, remedies, and supplements. This is because Sarah genuinely took the time she needed to understand me as a person, in order to help me with my health concerns. It is the value in the questions that she asked, seeking out the root cause of my health issues. Majority of these questions I had never taken the time to ask myself, which I now know is vital to the healing process. I had no problem sharing my answers with Sarah as she created a safe space, by caring and listening, allowing my concerns to be heard. This all contributes to a bigger picture of my whole self, which clearly coincides with my mental and physical wellbeing. I would not have been able to get to the root cause of my health issues without Sarah’s attributes and knowledge.Katherine - Australia
Sarah has treated my family for various health issues with great success over the years and I have found her to be a thorough, thoughtful and holistic practitioner, who does not isolate an ailment, but rather treats the body, and its physical interconnectedness, as a whole. We have found homeopathy to be a wonderful complement to other traditional forms of medicine, and will continue to see The Family Apothecary for years to come.Samantha - Melbourne
I am grateful to have met Sarah who has helped me immensely with my general well being and tonsillitis in particular. I would have been still on antibiotics if I would not have met Sarah. Thank you for all your help and wish you all the best.V.K - Australia
Sarah is amazing. She spent our time very efficiently and really got to know me and my concerns to get to the core of the problem and find solutions. I have had amazing results! Would not hesitate to recommend her services.A.C - Melbourne
