About me

I have been a homeopath since I graduated from the School of Homeopathy in Devon, UK in 1998. I live and work near Tavistock, on the edge of beautiful Dartmoor.

I run a homeopathy practice offering online and face to face consultation, and I am a regular lecturer on the undergraduate programme at the School of Homeopathy, as well as overseeing the School’s clinical training as Clinical Supervisor. I continue to read widely and study to extend my knowledge and skills.

I live with my teenage daughter and two cats in the beautiful Walkham Valley. I am a keen photographer, gardener and naturalist, and love exploring the diversity of nature around us here in Devon.

I have used homeopathy as my primary source of healthcare for my whole adult life, and also for my daughter, and it has made a profound change in our level of health.

I believe in the innate intelligence, resilience and power of the human mind and body.

I am approachable and easy to talk to, and understand that everyone has a unique experience of illness – you are the expert on your own health problem.

I offer a safe space for you to feel heard, seen and supported in your journey back to health.
