Registered Homeopath, Lifestyle Coach & Well-being Facilitator

Helping you to achieve your optimum health

Medical science is slowly coming round to the fact that there is more to health and well-being than what is going on physically in our bodies. To become more resilient to life’s knocks and challenges and achieve our optimum health we need to work on our mental, emotional and spiritual health as well as to our physical health as they are all very closely connected. Homeopathy and other traditional practices of medicine have recognised this for centuries and this ‘whole person’ or holistic approach to health and well-being is the very essence of these types of medicine.

My role as a Homeopath, Lifestyle Coach and Well-being Facilitator is to guide and empower you to help you to make the necessary changes to improve your health and well-being. My approach is flexible, designed to be personalised to meet your individual needs and to work alongside conventional treatments. My motivation to work in this area started over 25 years ago when I first experienced poor health myself and managed to significantly improve my own health and well-being by using these type of approaches.

 What is Homeopathy?

As I mentioned above, Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine, it is used by over 200 million people worldwide to treat both acute and chronic conditions. Homeopathy is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’ – in other words, a substance taken in small amounts will cure the same symptoms it causes if it was taken in large amounts.

Homeopathy alongside conventional medicine

Homeopathy doesn’t interfere with conventional medicine and should be seen as a complementary treatment, not as an alternative. In fact, homeopathic and conventional treatments can work very well alongside each other. This approach also gives patients more treatment choices.

The evidence base

Up to the end of 2013, there have been 188 peer-reviewed papers reporting randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in homeopathy. This represents research in 100 different medical conditions. Of those 188 RCT papers, 82 (44%) were positive, 10 (5%) negative and 89 (47%) non-conclusive: Source: Faculty of Homeopathy – research

What are Homeopathic Remedies Made of?

Homeopathic medicines are made mainly from plants and minerals which are diluted then added to tablets, pills or dispensed in liquid.

"I was diagnosed with colon cancer; following surgery I began a course of chemotherapy. The side effects had several effects on me such as tiredness, depression and neuropathy in hands and feet. Over many months I was prescribed several treatments for each side effect (which were taken alongside conventional medicines), the homeopathic treatments have really helped and improved my condition and general health and well-being. Carolyn either saw me or kept in contact via telephone over this period. She has always been concerned about me and made me feel well supported. I can fully recommend homeopathy - I was skeptical at the beginning, but no longer, from now on I would always try homeopathy."
