I have been in practice as a homeopath for 25 years. I like to make a relationship with my clients, working with them to understand the root cause of why they are ill and refining this understanding over time. I now sometimes treat the children of people who first came to see me as children. I really enjoy seeing how homeopathy increases people's wellbeing and creativity and supports them to follow their individual path in life.
I am passionate student of homeopathy, taking every opportunity to learn about new remedies and exchange knowledge and support with colleagues. I also work with the students in supervision at the School of Homeopathy in Stroud.
Homeopathy treats people holistically, using the principle of "similars" and minute doses. It is therefore safe, but can be very powerful, triggering the organisms own healing response on many levels. Many conditions can be helped by homeopathic treatment, as well as emotional states and behavioural problems in children: first, it is important to understand the meaning of the symptoms in relation to the person, their constitution and their life. The remedies prescribed will effective in proportion to the accuracy of this understanding. People have consulted me who suffer from all kinds of complaints, from menstrual problems, hayfever and eczema to high blood pressure, thyroid disorders and depression. If you have a longstanding chronic complaint, homeopathy can work alongside your prescribed medication.
What is involved?
My initial consultation is an hour and a half, during which we work together to thoroughly understand and make sense of the symptoms that have brought you. Then I send you a remedy within a few days. I usually like to arrange two further follow up consultations at six weekly intervals. I find that it often takes this amount of time to understand you, your constitution and your complaint really well and to make sure that the prescribed remedy is as accurate as possible. After the initial three, consultations are arranged as needed. Children's consultations are a little shorter. I like to talk to the children themselves, as well as their main carer and to have time to observe them play and draw.
I am happy to talk to prospective patients on my mobile number or in person at the clinic, to discuss possible length of treatment and prognosis.
I also enjoy supervising other homeopaths and health professionals.
