I am a qualified and experienced natural health practitioner having worked initially as an homeopath since 2004. I studied homeopathy at the College of Homeopathy in London.
I am also a registered nurse and have experience in working across a number of different areas of medicine over the period of 10 years, from gastro-intestinal health through to gynaecology and elderly health. My nursing experience has given me an understanding of a wide range of health problems and the ability to integrate a natural health approach and helping with health issues, with a thorough understanding of conventional approaches.
I am also a qualified Nutritional Therapist, having studied at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London. My nutritional training has provided not only an understanding of the importance of diet to fundamental health, but also of how to use nutrition/herbals/homeopathics when helping people with chronic health issues get back to health.
I use a functional medicine approach to helping my patients achieve wellness - spending time with patients, listening to their stories, and exploring the interactions between genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that are involved in any health problem. I use a range of functional laboratory tests to identify problems with hormones, gut and immune health.
