I first approached Homeopathy when I was in my early twenties as I had been suffering with Acne for many years. I was working as a makeup artist and beauty therapist and my skin's appearance had had a huge dent on my self esteem and confidence.
As a last resort I visited a Homeopath at the London Homeopathic Hospital and was prescribed remedies over a period of 3-6 months.
At the time, I had no idea what Homeopathy was or how it worked, I was just desperate for something to work as I had been down every route available to try and treat my skin.
Within this time frame, my skin cleared up (although it got worse before it got better), I also left my job and began working for myself as a Holistic therapist.
In the years to follow I began to build on my skills and experience in the Holistic therapy field and trained in many different aspects such as reflexology, Australian bush flower essences, holistic and pregnancy massage and mindfulness and meditation.
My passion and interest around the connection between our mind, body, emotions and spirit was growing and I was able to integrate my skills to run very busy practices in both London and Kent.
I revisited Homeopathy when I was due to give birth to my son, for no other reason other than following an intuitive hunch to order a Homeopathic birth kit. I used Homeopathic remedies throughout my labour for slow contractions, for pain and also Arnica to help with my post partum recovery. It sparked more of an interest into using Homeopathy for my son's ailments such as fevers, diarrhea, teething, colds, coughs and bruises.
I was always amazed at how his symptoms and moods would change after giving him a remedy, in some instances very quickly.
I became increasingly interested in using Homeopathy for myself and my family and I also felt passionate about sharing this natural system of healing the body with other parents so I decided to train and become a Homeopath, and the rest is history!
Being a Homeopath, for me, is more of a vocation than a career. I am dedicated and passionate about supporting the physical and emotional health of women, mums, children and teenagers with this natural and holistic approach to health and healing. I teach online courses in the basics of using homeopathy for acute common childhood ailments and I'm also a big advocate on using flower essences for emotional balance and wellbeing.
For me personally, I believe that Homeopathy is not an alternative to conventional medicine or treatment, but can work effectively alongside. I have always experienced a place in the world (and my practice ) for both.
A little more about me...
I live in a small village in Kent with my son and cat (Jupiter) and work part time in a Homeopathic pharmacy in Kent. I see patients online via zoom and Skype.
I am passionate about sharing tips and advice on supporting the family with Homeopathy, usually via instagram. I'm just as passionate about baking and eating homemade cakes.. although I try to balance this with some super healthy juices and yoga!!
I am registered with the Alliance of Registered Homeopaths and dedicated to continuous professional development.
