Meet THE doctor

Dr Amanda Steele is a Cannabis Clinician and Psychiatry Registrar working in Northern Rivers. 


Dr Steele holds a Bachelor of Science with a specialisation in Neuroscience and a Doctor of Medicine and Surgery from the Australian National University (ANU). She has postgraduate medical experience in various areas – predominantly in psychiatry but also in emergency medicine, palliative care, obstetrics and gynaecology. With a background in research, Dr Steele has previously worked with the Sensory Science Team at CSIRO in biogenetics and chemistry and has also assisted in the development of a health questionnaire to survey the health of young people in custody.  


Being of Aboriginal Australian descent herself, Dr Steele has a special interest in Aboriginal health. She enjoys getting involved with her own community and has worked in various Aboriginal communities throughout her career, including placement as a medical student in the Northern Territory. She hopes to incorporate culturally appropriate traditional medicine into her practice in the future.  


Dr Steele is committed to patient-centred holistic healthcare using evidence-based interventions, including lifestyle modifications and therapies. She is interested in a wide range of health areas including psychiatry, functional medicine, and plant-based medicine.


When not working, Dr Steele enjoys exploring waterfalls and beaches with her dog, spending time with her family and friends, painting, and permaculture.
