I first got in to homeopathy via my children. My eldest son when he was very young used to get ear infections every time we flew on a plane. That meant he would not be able to swim and our holidays would begin stressfully with him being in pain. Getting fed up with giving him anti- biotics and the problem reoccurring I took him to see a homeopath. He was given a remedy and after the remedy has never had another earache He is now 23 and both he and his brother have grown up with homoeopathy.
My understanding of homeopathy deepened when in 2001 when I started my training at the Centre for Homeopathic Education. I completed the 4-year course graduating in 2005. Since graduating I have run clinics in both Hampstead and in Neal’s yard in Covent Garden.
I have continued to further my study with numerous CPD days and have done postgraduate courses with the Guild of Homeopaths taught by Colin Griffith, Janice Macalef and Martin Miles, and the Dynamis course with Jeremy Sherr. I am a registered and insured member of the Society of Homeopaths.
As well as running my clinics I worked for 8 years in Helios homeopathic pharmacy, 2005-2013, where I have dispensed remedies and given advice to thousands of customers. I have also taught first aid courses in homeopathy at The College of Naturopathic Medicine.
In 2011 and again for a month in 2013 I was fortunate to be able to go out to Botswana as a volunteer homeopath with the Maun Homeopathic project. This is a project whose aims are to provide a homeopathic service to local people and to train local people to become homeopaths to make this service sustainable. We went out in to villages where access to healthcare is limited and do monthly clinics. We also work in an orphanage and go out to Safari camps to treat the staff. I found it to be a life changing and enriching experience. It was a privilege to help teach and work in the clinics alongside the local trainees homeopaths. Those trainees have since graduated and are now running their own clinics.
