From my teenage years I have been fascinated to understand what makes us tick inside - in particular on the emotional plane. Because of this I studied psychology when I left school. The course ultimately left me dissatisfied. At that time, in the early 1970's, psychology seemed to lack the subtlty of perception to interest me. Still I was awarded a B Sc (Hons) and worked for many years with children and community groups, mainly using drama as a tool for self-expression and self-discovery. I even taught for a time in the Drama Department at the University of Newcastle, and contemplated studying for an MA there.
I was drawn to study homeopathy after having success treating my family and myself. with homeopathy for a variety of complaints. Homeopathy appealed to me in particular, because, in classical homeopathy, the emotional and mental state of the patient is often pivotal in making a prescription. I practise in Sydney, after graduating from the Sydney College of Homeopathic Medicine with an Adv Dip Hom in 2002. I am a member of the Australian Homeopathic Association (AHA) and registered with the Australian Register of Homeopaths (AROH).
I love educating the community about homeopathy. I teach a ‘Natural Healing at Home’ course which is an introduction to homeopathy, and a guide for using homeopathy to treat minor ailments. I have developed and teach ‘Homeopathy for Childbirth’ for doulas, and I have lectured to degree students at Endeavour College of Natural Health.
I also have a strong love of and commitment to meditation and mindfulness practice, and have been a meditation teacher for many years. I now teach a very enriching course: Mindful Self Compassion (see home page for more details).
