Hello and thanks for visiting my website!
I established my busy and varied Homeopathy practice in Nottingham in 2004 after I qualifed as a Licentiate Homeopath from the Centre for Homeopathic Education, London. So, this means that I have over 18 years' experience of homeopathic clinical practice here in Nottingham. My patients are of all ages and backgrounds, their ages range from pre-birth to very old age and I'm asked to help with a huge variety of both physical and emotional health concerns.
Many of my patients come to me through recommendation from others. People frequently seek homeopathic help to deal with those conditions that don't respond well to ordinary medicine and many wish to ease or de-tox side effects of various harsh medications. Some just wish to boost their general resistance to reoccurring ailments and to raise their immunity levels safely and gently with homeopathy. Many wish to discuss their diet and lifestyle so that they are able to feel guided in their choices to achieve their best for their own health and wellbeing.
Everyone's health issues are completely individual and vary greatly. Homeopathy addresses all types of conditions from short-term or acute problems through to longer-standing, deep-seated or chronic health issues.
I'm fully insured and registered with the Alliance of Registered Homeopaths, and work according to their Code of Ethics and Professional Practice so that I can provide a quality service in a caring and professional environment. Do feel free to check my details on the Alliance of Registered Homeopaths website under the 'Find A Homeopath' tab, and on the National Directory of Registered Homeopaths. For some simple self-help and homeopathic hints that may help you and your family's health and well-being do have a look at my Seasonal Health Tips page.
My main area of homeopathic expertise is WOMEN'S HEALTH & WELLBEING. More specifically, I am often consulted for issues relating to Menstrual Health, the Menopause, Pregnancy & Birth, but of course, my treatment is not exclusive to women! My first degree in Psychology and post-graduate Certificate in Counselling & Personal Development inform my helping men and women with emotional conditions relating to ANXIETY, STRESS & DEPRESSION. Additionally, I hold a Grade A SNHS Diploma in COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT) and offer CBT as well as Homeopathy in order to help deal with personal issues such as Anxiety and Panic Attacks, Stress, OCD, Anger management, Low Self-Esteem, Addictions and other psychologically troubling states. Both therapies are available separately, but to see how CBT & Homeopathy can work together, here is a link to my CBT page:
I'm also often consulted by those with allergic conditions such as HAYFEVER, ECZEMA, ASTHMA, CANDIDA, IBS etc, as well as food cravings and suspected sensitivities. Homeopathy can act specifically on the immune system, and in order to identify specific allergens and suspected sensitivities, I can use simple kinesiological muscle testing as part of your homeopathic consultation, providing it is appropriate for you. I have a Grade A SNHS Diploma in ALLERGY TESTING and sometimes testing can be helpful to supplement homeopathic treatment. But Homeopathy specifically addresses the underlying causes of allergic conditions, as well as your individual symptoms. To find out more about how Allergy Testing & Homeopathy work together, here's the link to my Allergy Testing page.

Online & Phone Appointments, Home Visits
I am seeing patients face-to-face again in the usual way, but some of my patients also communicate with me online or by mobile and landline too. If you do prefer a distance appointment, I post out remedies to you via 1st class post following your initial appointment or, you can pick them up from me direct. Payment is via internet banking, PayPal, cash or cheque.
I also offer home visits in the Nottingham area within a radius of 10 miles especially for those who are not able to get around easily, but for those further away, hopefully the phone or online options would suit instead.
Why So Many People Choose Homeopathy
Simply because homeopathic medicine is SAFE for everyone, of all ages! No harsh chemicals or treatments are involved and it works with the body as opposed to going against or suppressing it. Homeopathy seeks to treat causes of discomfort and not just the symptoms. Treatment provides an individualised regime that treats the whole person in an empathetic and balanced manner, . Hence, homeopathy suits all ages: and it is ideal for pregnant and nursing mothers because of its gentleness. Homeopathy is frequently chosen by those sensitive to prescription medications and their many side effects. Babies and young children enjoy the pleasant taste of homeopathic remedies, whilst the very frail benefit from its gentleness. Here is a simply written explanation of why Homeopathy works!
Homeopathy encourages your own body to heal itself from the inside outwards. Homeopathic remedies can be safely and effectively used either alongside or instead of ordinary medicine, should you wish. Whilst it's often helpful to work with a clinical diagnosis, prescriptions and tests relating to your condition, it is not always necessary. It is YOUR symptoms and how YOU experience them that count the most in homeopathic treatment. Importantly, homeopathy addresses the causes as well as the symptoms of your particular discomfort.
Homeopathy also enhances and supports other complementary and alternative therapies and treatments, especially CBT & other counselling approaches, as well as therapies like Allergy Testing, Reflexology and Herbal medicine. Homeopathy also enhances physical interventions like Physiotherapy, Osteopathy, Massage and Chiropractic treatment because homeopathic remedies can support & encourage tissue repair.

I am an examiner and a supervisor of student homeopaths for two colleges of homeopathy and I've written many journal articles about Homeopathy, and Homeopathic Treatment. A recent article can be accessed here. and there are more of my homeopathy articles to be found here. I have presented several talks over the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire areas on Homeopathy and on CBT. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you are interested.
