My route to homeopathy began when I chose an evening class in natural health in the 1980’s. At that time, I’d been suffering for a long while from debilitating lack of energy and depression and had no idea I could do anything about it. Finding homeopathy – and a good homeopath – was transformative and empowering for me: not only did I become more energetic and happy, I learned how to take responsibility for my health and to understand why I had become ill.
I changed the way I thought about health and illness, used homeopathy at home and trained to become a homeopath.
I trained at the School of Homeopathy with Misha Norland, graduating in 2005. The course was wonderfully inspiring as well as a thorough, demanding training. I continue to learn through my practice, attending seminars and being part of a practitioner group. I also mentor student homeopaths. I am passionate about homeopathy and using my skills to help others achieve best health.
I live with my husband in beautiful Topsham near Exeter and have grown-up children. I love to be by the estuary or walking on Dartmoor, in nature, where my thoughts turn to how humans used to live and the unspoiled landscape. I care deeply about all life on this planet and how humans treat each other and other animals. I decided to become vegetarian in 1981 and vegan in 1989 and believe that being so also contributes to my good health. I am always happy to share my knowledge of plant-based nutrition and bringing up children as vegans. In my practice I use remedies that do not contain lactose.
