I've been working as a homeopath in Colchester since I qualified in 2012.
I grew up in Ruislip, north-west London and moved to Colchester with my husband in 2000.
I live with my family and our two Border Terriers, Bear and Edie.
One of my favourite things is to walk the dogs in the Country Park close to our home - I'm a great believer in the benefits of getting out in nature for your physical and mental health.
I'm a big fan of yoga and have practiced on-and-off for over 20 years. I'm now doing yoga at home almost every day, as soon as I'm up in the morning. I love the sense of calm and energy it gives me - it's the perfect start to the day.
I also love reading, going to the cinema, drinking coffee and eating home-made cake and chocolate. But I try not to do the last two things too often. ;)
My homeopathy education & experience
My professional training was with the Allen College of Homeopathy. I was awarded a Dip. Hom. ACH in June 2012.
I'm a registered member of The Alliance of Homeopaths. I'm insured with Balens.
I completed my training as a Homeobotanical Therapist in 2017.
I have attended seminars on topics such as
I have run a workshop on using homeopathy at home at The Manor Health & Wellness Centre in Colchester.
My other education & experience
Bsc in Sociology awarded by The University of Surrey.
MSc in Social Research Methods awarded by The University of Surrey.
I worked as a Research Executive at Market & Opinion Research International (MORI) for 2 years after completing my MSc.
I worked as a Research Manager for Essex Training & Enterprise Council (Essex TEC) and then Learning & Skills Council, Essex (LSC, Essex).
I volunteered at the Bayswater Families Centre in central London when I was 19 years old for 3 years. The Centre was used by temporarily homeless families with children under 5 years of age. Many of the users were seeking political asylum in the UK. As a result of this voluntary work I went on to gain paid employment as a deputy play-scheme leader for Westminster Women's Aid, based in a Women's Refuge. The experiences I gained over these years taught me a huge amount about life and the importance of taking the time to find out an individual's life story.
I was a full-time mum to my two children from 2003. During this time I was on the committee of the National Childrbirth Trust (NCT) for many years. I also helped to run a local Parent & Toddler group for several years.
I volunteered in a care home for people with dementia for three months during lockdown. I stopped volunteering every week at the the end July 2020. I continue to visit the home as a volunteer every month. I either take one of my dogs to visit the residents or give a manicure and a relaxing hand and arm massage.
You actively listen. During a consultation I always have the sense that your focus is totally on me. You can listen to a plethora of things and narrow the focus to a 'let's start here point'. Fundamentally you're kind and caring.
It's important that you feel I'm the right person to work with - that's why I offer a free 30-minute Discovery Call.
You can tell me what's going on for you and ask any questions that you like. I'll be open and honest about whether I think I can help.
If you're ready to take a new approach to your health, let's talk. :)
