Some years ago homeopathy permanently cleared my long-standing, chronic eczema. I wanted a natural alternative medicine to prescribed harsh, suppressive steroid creams as well as a safe, holistic approach to my overall health. Homeopathic medicine not only cleared up my skin permanently, but homeopathic treatment also pinpointed and helped me deal effectively with the original emotional trigger for the eczema. This was my inspiration to study and qualify as a homeopath myself and set up my practice in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
My first BA(Hons) degree is in Psychology. Before I became a Homeopath I was a lecturer & researcher in Psychology and Women's Studies. Additionally, I hold a Post-Graduate Certificate in Counselling & Personal Development from City University, London, a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and a Diploma in Allergy Testing using Kinesiology.
This background helps me enormously in relating to all my patients' health & lifestyle issues and the psychological effects these can have throughout our lifespan. However, I'm equally inspired by my patients and what their experiences teach me as a homeopath. Indeed, it was my patients who inspired me to study for the Diplomas in CBT and in Allergy Testing with the School of Natural Health Sciences: I found that over the years so many people of all ages were presenting with emotional problems like anxiety, stress and depression and allergic conditions such as eczema, asthma, candida, IBS and so on. Hence, I can offer a truly holistic approach to solving these types of problems primarily using Homeopathy and sometimes combining techniques used in CBT and Allergy Testing by Kinesiology.
Here are links to a couple of articles I wrote that were also inspired by patients published in an international e-journal: End of Life and Homeopathy and Homeopathy for Glands & Hormones.
I accept payments via PayPal, BACS, cash and cheques. General advice is, of course, FREE. Just ask me with no obligation whether Homeopathy, CBT or Allergy Testing can help you!
HOMEOPATHY: To visit me in Netherfield, its £68 for the first Homeopathy appointment and £48 for follow-ups. (I prefer at least one follow-up 3-4 weeks later to monitor your initial progress with the remedies).
These charges include homeopathic remedies as well as telephone or email support and advice between appointments.
COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT) sessions are £35 for the initial assessment and £30 each session thereafter. (A minimum of 5 sessions with a maximum of 15 is usual).
ALLERGY TESTING is included in Homeopathy appointments, where appropriate.
Whilst emergencies do inevitably crop up that might prevent you from keeping your appointment with me, a cancellation fee of 50% applies for non-attendances and cancellations at very short notice in order to cover my preparation time, any room or petrol costs. Fortunately, this is seldom necessary
NB: If you have private health insurance you might like to check with your insurers whether you are covered for homeopathic consultations. An increasing number of personal and corporate health insurance companies (such as HSA, Healthsure, Westfield and AXA) are recognising the benefits of Homeopathy, CBT, and other complementary or alternative treatments like CBT.
