are relaxed and unhurried, with the time and space to allow you to tell
me all that you wish to be improved and for me to help you focus in on
the areas that appear most relevant. My job is to find the remedies that
will best stimulate your own natural and individual healing process. Within
all of this I also hope to help you feel more able to understand your
problem/s and to see them in a way in which you feel personally empowered.
what I treat
of people come to see me for all kinds of problems. A typical week involves
treating babies with eczema, children with ear infections, teenagers with
low energy, women with PMS, men with lack of confidence and older people
with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I hope that list wasn't too offensively
stereotypical! Basically, homeopathy can help with practically any physical,
mental and emotional problem. Do contact me if you feel you'd like to
discuss your particular situation before committing yourself to an appointment.
with Suzanne and Well Mother, I do see a large percentage of children
and mothers. Some people, often pregnant women, have seen me for homeopathy
as well as having shiatsu from Suzanne. We are increasingly finding the
combination of these two therapies to be a very powerful and dynamic route
to moving on stubborn problems.
see many children, men and women who have suffered, or feel they may have
suffered, from sexual abuse as children or adults. My personal route to
health has, and still does, involve dealing with these issues. It is an
area I find particularly rewarding to be involved with in helping others.
in Social Psychology at the University of Kent at Canterbury in 1984,
I began training with Misha Norland at The School of Homeopathy in Devon,
qualifying in 1987. This training focussed me in the discipline of "classical"
homeopathy and taking time to hear the whole story of my patients.
I continue to
develop my skills and have regular supervision with a group of homeopaths
in Bristol. One more recent aspect of this is developing the use of new
remedies, some details of which will appear on this site.
my childhood interest in yoga, by completing the two and a half year teacher
training with the British Wheel of Yoga. In 1987 I began teaching yoga
classes and working as a homeopath. The yoga has developed into the work
which I now do with Suzanne
and Well Mother as well as
having a significant effect on the way I work with homeopathy.
For an adult (and
for most children aged 14 and above) the initial consultation lasts
for up to two hours. During this time I will endeavour to find out as
much information as possible to choose the remedy to begin your treatment.
This will include details of your presenting problem, any other problems
you may have, a detailed overview of your body and its characteristics.
How you are as a person is also important, as is what kind of things you
are sensitive to or react to, what you like and are attracted to. Events
in your life may be relevant to your present condition.
and then what?
You receive a
remedy either during the consultation or after I have done some further
study on your case.
Depending on your
particular needs, we discuss how best to follow up your treatment. Usually,
the first follow up session is a month after the first. Follow up consultations
usually last for up to one hour.
You may want to
leave all the decisions up to me or you may prefer to begin to take on
for yourself such things as when to make further follow up appointments
or even when to repeat taking a remedy. With guidance, most people are
able to judge the best frequency of repetitions of their remedies and
have often reported feeling more positively engaged in their healing through
weekends and holidays
There are times when you may need help when I'm not working. I am part
of Bristol Homeopathic Practice, a group of homeopaths in Bristol who
share weekend availability for acute treatment and advice, and cover one
another when we are away. In this way there is local help available, if
you should need it, each day of the year.
occasionally be additional charges to cover costs if you need to have
substantial amounts of herbal remedies alongside the homeopathic ones)
If you are looking
for a homeopath you might consider the obvious in making your choice like
their experience, whether they are male or female, how much they charge
and recommendations you have of them. It can also be useful to think of
your specific needs, like finding out how available they are both during
the day and out of hours for dealing with problems that may arise quickly,
especially if you are thinking of taking your child, or someone who is
severely ill to consult them.
