ABOUT ME

Serious Office.jpg

As a teenager I was fascinated to understand what makes us tick, particularly in the emotional realm. I studied psychology at university, and while, at that time, psychology seemed to lack the subtlety of perception to satisfy my interest, still I was awarded a B Sc (Hons) in 1974. I then worked with children and community groups, using drama as a tool for self-discovery, and taught for a time in the Drama Department at the University of Newcastle. 

 

In 1981, I was introduced to meditation. The experiences I had engendered a sense of wholeness in my being, and the philosophy underlying the practice also landed deeply for me. Since then, the study and practice of meditation have been pivotal for my life.  

After becoming a mother, I learned about homeopathy. It appealed to me because, in classical homeopathy, the emotional and mental state of the patient is often pivotal in making a prescription. I studied homeopathy and graduated 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). 

 

Besides practising as a homeopath, I teach an introductory ‘Homeopathy at Home’ and I have lectured to degree students at Endeavour College of Natural Health.

 

In 2018 I learned about the Mindful Self-Compassion course – it made my heart sing - and completed my teacher training that year. I have adapted the 8-week 3-hour course into two shorter, more accessible formats which I now teach both live and online.
