Who I Am and What I Do
I’ve been a professional Homeopath since 1983. I’m am passionate about helping my patients move through a wide range of physical, emotional and spiritual transitions in the most efficient and transformative way possible.
I am experienced in supporting women through their childbearing year and have a special interest in treating babies, and children with special needs.
Every day I am grateful for Homeopathy. I thank it for the health and happiness it has brought for myself and my family, for the wonderful colleagues and clients from whom I have learnt so much and have shared such an innovative world view. I am pleased to be able to say that I brought up my neuro-diverse son without antibiotics or other mainstream medication and he is now a healthy, independent adult and father.
My first degree was in psychology and although the human psyche has always fascinated me I found that this was not a path I wanted to pursue. I started my homeopathic journey in Australia in 1980 when I was studying acupuncture but soon fell in love with Homeopathy and started a 2 year diploma course. I also joined a group called the Homeopathic Education and Research Association who studied with a homeopathic doctor from India, Dr Dilip Dixit. I was privileged to join in with him on several intensive seminars he ran in Australia and also went twice to India to receive mentorship in his busy clinic.
I worked a lot with pregnant women and young children over the years, incorporating Childbirth Education into my practice. Because I loved working with pregnant women and babies I decided to study Midwifery, graduating in 1999. Since then I have enjoyed integrating homeopathy with my midwifery practice which has been focused on facilitating home and natural births mostly in London and more recently back in my home country New Zealand. I am also a certified lactation consultant and have found homeopathy invaluable for treating many breast-feeding challenges.
I have enjoyed working as a mentor and teacher with the Ghana Homeopathic Project both on visits to Ghana and on-line.
My husband and I live on a beautiful lifestyle block in Hawkes Bay with our 3 cats and 2 goats. In my free time I enjoy organic gardening, yoga and crafting.
My homeopathic specialities include pregnancy, birth and young babies, and I also have a special interest in detoxing and treating children with developmental delays, ASD and PANDAS. I studied with Kim Kalina to become a certified Cease Practitioner and to use Inspiring homeopathy. I have also attended lectures with Colin Griffiths and Pierre Fontaine.
My treatments are specifically tailored to the needs of each patient to make sure they receive the approach that works best for them. Time and again I have seen the incredible healing power of my treatments. Please contact me to find out more.
