My passion for complementary medicine began nine years ago when a herbalist successfully treated my adult-onset asthma in just two months. From that moment I knew that I wanted to dedicate myself to helping others enjoy health and wellbeing. Since then I have both experienced myself, and witnessed in others, many remarkable, effects of both homeopathy and herbs. I have developed a particular interest in treating women and children. I am a fully-qualified homeopath and herbalist with a first-class honours degree in Homeopathy and diplomas in both Herbal Medicine and Naturopathy.
I am a registered with the Society of Homeopaths and a member of the Association of Master Herbalists.
My training from the Centre for Homeopathic Education, Britain's largest homeopathic college (degree validated by Middlesex University), is in both classical and practical homeopathy, an approach which encourages flexibility in prescribing. This, combined with herbal and naturopathic training from the College of Naturopathic Medicine, has provided me with the gentle, yet powerful, tools needed to treat a wide range of physical and emotional problems. This combined training also provided 700 hours of clinical experience and a thorough grounding in Anatomy and Physiology.
I have lived, and brought up my family, in the Shepherd's Bush, Ealing, Acton and Brentford area of west London for 28 years.
I strongly believe that the future of healthcare lies in a more integrated approach to health and wellbeing. No one system of healing has all the answers to our 21st century health problems.
My approach is very flexible; I can treat just with herbs or just with homeopathy according to my patient's wishes and needs, although I often find that using both achieves the quickest and most effective results. I combine this with offering practical self-help solutions and dietary advice where appropriate. I also incorporate Bach and Bush flower remedies when these would be of help. Where necessary I will direct to a medical practitioner for tests and to discuss other options. This enables me to provide individualised treatment, adapted to the unique nature of each patient.
