Welcome! I’ve been on a long journey and can’t wait to share what I have learned with you. I started studying homeopathy when I was 26 years old and living in London. I already had a career in international banking behind me, which was something I literally fell into when I graduated from University College London with a degree in Scandinavian languages, literature and history in 1984. I didn’t know what I wanted to do and thought that the degree, much as I loved it, had not trained me to make a living. Yet I got a well-paid job with a Japanese bank, using my knowledge of the Scandinavian languages.
This seemed like a minor miracle at the time – and it was. I have a firm belief, based on my own lived experience, that we are in the right place and the right time to experience the lesson we need. I needed the experience of working in a stressful, unhealthy environment, with people smoking all around me in the dealing room – yes – you could sit and smoke at your desk in those days – to realize that health and happiness are things money cannot buy. While suffering from low energy and zero motivation in my highly paid banking job, I heard that a friend was studying homeopathy. I found that seeing a homeopath brought me relief from a longstanding and intractable UTI condition.
In fact, this was my second encounter with homeopathy. My first had been as a child when my mother took me to see a homeopath for eczema. Thanks to my mother, who was ahead of her time, I was aware that body and mind are an integrated whole. My mother also taught me by her example that nature and animals were to play a huge role in my health and happiness. The third gift she gave me, that I now pass on to the clients I work with, is sovereignty over my own body and thus over my own life. This gift took a little longer for me to unpack, integrate, and fully appreciate.
It is only recently that I have truly been able to say I fully understand and embody this gift of sovereignty in my own life and in my practice. Sovereignty may seem like a strange word to use but it is, I believe, along with the word integrity, at the heart of health and happiness. Think about it. If I have complete sovereignty over my body and life, where is the problem? If there is integrity between what I say and what I do, how can there be a problem? There is no blame and no-one to hold responsible for me, other than myself. If we want to be healthy and happy we must not give our power over to another, whether that be an individual, a professional, a culture, or an organization. This is where I come in, should you choose to work with me.
As a experienced, professional homeopath who is insured and registered with the UK Society of Homeopaths, I have knowledge of homeopathic materia medica (remedies) and methodologies (how to use them) that can be applied to the condition you are currently experiencing. My studies and work with dream tending, active imagination, nature-guided journaling and other somatic depth psychological tools are also at your disposal. I also often use Bach Flower Remedies, according to the ABC method, to quickly get to the root of emotional confusion.
I qualified as a licentiate of The College of Homeopathy in London in 1992. Then I did a post-graduate diploma in homeopathy with Jeremy Sherr’s Dynamis School in London. Later, while living in California, I did a master’s and then a doctorate in somatic depth psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara. I have continued to learn more through regular Continuing Professional Education in Conferences, Seminars and Webinars in the UK and the USA, most recently by attending the Joint American Homeopathic Conference in April 2021 and the Ainsworth’s ABC method of working with Bach Flower Remedies in May 2021.
