About Me

corinne website photoI studied art and sociology when I left school and planned to become a social worker. I got involved with anti poverty campaigns in the voluntary sector. I had various part-time admin jobs but stopped work for a period when one of my 3 kids required extra support due to a metabolic illness which meant she over-produced insulin.
I became interested in homeopathy when she had impetigo, an infectious, blistering skin condition. After 2 courses of antibiotics had failed to clear it up I finally took the advice of a mum-friend at school and contacted my local homeopath. I was impressed by the sophisticated approach she took towards my daughter’s health. ¬†She explored her medical history in depth, including what illnesses were in the family background. The impetigo cleared up in days. Then she supported her general state of health

I have never looked back. Since then I have used homeopathy for all the family and some of my friends too.

I trained at the London School of Classical Homeopathy and Westminster University.

I am interested especially in conditions that are difficult to treat conventionally.

As a mother of three I am sensitive and empathetic when meeting worried parents with their children. I understand that sometimes people need to take medication and may feel isolated and unsupported. Thankfully, homeopathy can be used alongside conventional medicine.

My prescriptions are based on a detailed case history, and are directly related to the signals the body sends out, as physical symptoms or emotional responses, including how the patient expresses themselves.

I am interested in what was going on in a person’s life when they became ill, thereby, getting to the source of the problem.

If blushing is an example of how a common benign emotion can cause physiological changes in our bodies imagine what happens when we experience stronger, negative emotions for a prolonged period.

It seems to me that the human body is highly dynamic and strives towards self-healing. Whilst no-one knows the exact mechanism by which homeopathy works it is believed to be an energy medicine that helps the body heal itself.

Consultations are friendly, empathetic and patient-centred. Patients often find the consultation itself makes them feel better, although, I believe the remedies we prescribe are effective active agents.

For those who have little, or no knowledge of homeopathy, I offer a free initial phone call. For those who would like to learn more about how they can use remedies at home, for themselves, I organise classes along with colleagues for small local groups.
