True healers know that wellness is the
order of the day, so they do not allow
themselves, even for a moment, to see
anything other than that. So, the power of
the healer is in the power to influence the
one who needs to be healed into a vibration
that allows the healing that they are

Holistic health has always been an interest of mine. Questioning the ordinary medical practice of putting a bandaid on a symptom but not really making it go away, I searched until I found something that worked: homeopathy. It ticks all the boxes for me and I just want to share the magic: there are no side effects; it treats the whole person, mind, body and spirit; it is made from natural substances like flowers and minerals; remedies are cheap and effective; there are measurable results; it supports and maintains health.
My curiosity about natural healing has directed me to some amazing mentors and teachers. I have taken from their teachings those things that resonate with my approach and explored them further. Along side my BA in Child Development from McGill University in Montreal (The Harvard of the North!), I have studied Holistic Counseling, Intuitive Homeopathy and Reiki. I started at the College of Practical Homeopathy and then went on to complete my Homeopathy Post Grad Degree at the Centre for Homeopathic Education in London.
Now based in Kensington, West London, I run a thriving homeopathy practice. People seem keen to try Complementary Medicine and are looking for alternatives to what their GP has to offer. I also do Skype or Facetime appointments and if preferred, I am happy to do home visits. I still travel to New York and Los Angeles quite often, so I keep up with my patients there too. Because I have witnessed the gifts of homeopathy, I am keen to spread the word.
Since I have walked the walk, I feel that I can talk the talk. Raising 4 amazing, creative, disparate and unique children has been an opportunity to grow as a practitioner. Homeopathy has been there for every broken heart, medical procedure or crossroads in life. Remedies support and expediate healing, both mental and physical.
Here is a simple way of explaining how homeopathy works, in my eyes:
During a state of health, you feel like everything is ticking along nicely, as it should. You don't really think about your organs and their functions. This is when your vital force flows harmoniously to create balance between mind and body.
Dr Hahnemann, who created Homeopathy 200 years ago, describes the vital force as "A never resting preservating force," which maintains health. It is also known as chi, qi or life force. What homeopathy does is try to correct or maintain the balance of the vital force. Ordinary medicine, on the other hand, only makes the symptoms go away but does not get to the root cause. And in doing so, simply moves the expression of the "dis-ease" to another part of the body.
So when we are in a state of altered health, like a flu or depression, it is because the vital force has somehow been changed and creates signs and symptoms in our body and mind. Trauma and shock are two very common things that literally knock you sideways. Your internal balance is thrown off and you struggle to recover, causing some kind of reaction in your mind or body. Such as flu or depression.
Homeopathy helps to re-align the vital force to re-establish harmony.
To achieve this, the symptoms are addressed and wellbeing can be restored. Ordinary medicine simply masks or suppresses symptoms, often pushing disease further into the body and causing more problems. For example, the steroids prescribed for asthma tax the liver which then causes the toxins to come out in the skin as eczema. You often see people who have asthma have eczema, and visa versa. This is why.
If you are feeling below par, in any way at all, I would suggest you consider a session. Or perhaps you have never been well since a certain event or time in your life.
Please give me a call, I would be happy to help.
