|I have worked with
people and health since 1973, when I began my nurse training. I qualified
as a psychiatric nurse in 1977, moving from hospital to community-based
work and then running an independence unit for adolescents.
I qualified as a homeopath in 1987 and have had a practice in London
since then. My aim is to create a safe and supportive environment
wherein patients are able to discuss health and gain perspective.
I view symptoms as signs of imbalance rather than the cause.
Compassion and understanding are vital aspects of my work. As a
homeopath I consider mind, body and spirit and feel it is important
that all these areas can be discussed openly, professionally and
I feel passionate about all aspects of my work but in particular
I enjoy working with emotional issues. I have been greatly influenced
by the work of C.G. Jung, Marion Woodman and William Irwin Thompson.
I have spent time with shamans and healers in Peru, Bali, and India
as well as working with doctors and midwives here in London, which
has given me a healthy respect for both esoteric and orthodox medicine.
I am a registered member of the society of homeopaths and have
full professional insurance with them.
