About Me

corinne website photoI became interested in homeopathy when my daughter was ill. I was impressed by the sophisticated approach the homeopath took towards her health.  Her medical history was explored in depth, including what illnesses were in the family background and what was particular about her. Then her progress was monitored closely.

I wanted to find out more so I trained at the London School of Classical Homeopathy, then at Westminster University.

Since then I have worked in two London clinics and from home.

I am interested especially in conditions that are difficult to treat conventionally, such as asthma, psoriasis and eczema.

As a mother of three I know the importance of being sensitive, understanding and empathetic when meeting worried parents with their children. As a mother of a child with a chronic illness, I understand that some 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.
