Hello and thanks for visiting my website!
I established my busy and varied Homeopathy practice in Nottingham in 2004 after qualifying as a Licentiate Homeopath from the Centre for Homeopathic Education, London. My patients are of all ages and backgrounds and 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. So, I now have over 18 years experience of homeopathic clinical practice here in Nottingham.
Many of my patients come to me through recommendation from others, whilst some just wish to boost their general resistance to reoccurring ailments and to raise their immunity levels, safely and gently with homeopathy.
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. Health issues vary between short-term, acute problems to longer-standing, chronic conditions.
I'm fully insured and registered with the Alliance of Registered Homeopaths, and work according to their Code of Ethics and Professional Practice in order to 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. Of course, 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 ALLERGIES, 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, if appropriate. I have a Grade A SNHS Diploma in ALLERGY TESTING and sometimes find testing 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
Many of my patients communicate with me online, as well as by mobile and landline, but of course I am also seeing patients face-to-face again in the usual way. If you do prefer an online appointment, I post out remedies to you via 1st class post following your initial appointment or, if you live locally, you can pick them up from me. Payment is via internet banking, PayPal, cheque or cash.
At the moment I'm unable to offer home visits for those who are not able to get around easily, but hopefully the phone or online options will suit until I can offer these again. Shortly, I will also be holding city-centre based appointments again for homeopathy and CBT, and more details will follow soon.
Why So Many People Choose Homeopathy
Simply because homeopathic medicine is SAFE for everyone, of all ages! No harsh chemicals or treatments are involved. Homeopathy provides an individualised regime that treats the whole person in an empathetic manner, seeking to treat causes as well as symptoms. Hence, homeopathy suits all ages: and it is, of course, ideal for pregnant and nursing mothers. Homeopathic treatment 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. 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 matter the most in homeopathic treatment, looking at causes as well as the symptoms of your 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 by clicking 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.
