Welcome to Healing with Nature

Running through all that I do is a philosophy based on balance, wholeness and combining modern understanding with older wisdom. It is borne out of my homeopathic training, science background, and clinical experience over the past decade.

The Whole Person

We intuitively know that our health, energy and wellbeing is the result of wellness in all aspects of our being. Equally, we know that when we are feeling stressed, anxious or low, we are more likely to experience physical symptoms, poor immunity or a lack of energy.

The Body’s Wisdom

The idea of emotion being carried in the body is not a new one – traditional Chinese medicine links specific organs to different emotions. Many holistic healers and medical intuitives have explored this further and found that the body often ‘speaks’ in symbol or metaphor.

The Life Force

Many holistic therapies acknowledge the invisible force that animates all life. Viewed through this lens, illness is said to result from an imbalance of the life force and health can be enhanced through practices and treatments that encourage this life force to flow freely.

Balance and Adaptability

Nature is constantly seeking balance. Health is the ability to adapt: to go with the ebb and flow of life, the change in seasons – to be able to respond to our changing circumstances and environment.

Integrated Care

A holistic approach does not dismiss current medical knowledge but rather brings together the best of both modern understanding and traditional wisdom. My approaches can be safely used alone or alongside conventional medical treatment or surgery.

Safe and Supportive

You can come and discuss all issues affecting your wellbeing in a supportive, confidential and judgement-free space. We work collaboratively to both explore the issues and to achieve your goals for health and wellbeing in the context of your circumstances.

Holistic Women’s Health

I work with women to help improve their health using a range of therapeutic strategies and tools for sustainable wellness. I work a lot with women with menstrual and menopausal issues, digestive problems, mood and anxiety issues.

Coming for Treatment

Holistic Women’s Health appointments offer a multifaceted, naturopathic way of addressing women’s health issues. Because homeopathic and mind–body approaches are at the heart of these sessions, we spend time working together, exploring the issues that are affecting your life and your health and it is this understanding that helps me select the right remedies, treatments and approaches.

Holistic Women’s Health Explained

Holistic Women’s Health appointments offer an integrated way of addressing women’s health issues, allowing us greater opportunity to explore and address the impact that stress, environment and lifestyle factors are having on you. They allow me the option of using not just homeopathy and herbs, but an array of therapeutic tools and practices that build psychological and physical resilience.


I offer homeopathic treatment for the whole family. This powerful form of healing is suitable for all ages and stages of life and can be use alone or alongside conventional medication. I am a classical homeopath, but I use a range of methodologies and see a wide range of problems in my clinic.

Coming for Treatment

Coming for homeopathic treatment is a little different to consulting your GP. Working together, we explore the issues that are affecting your life and your health and it is this understanding that helps me select the right homeopathic remedies. Because of the detailed basis on which remedies are selected, the homeopathic consultation takes time. It involves finding out about your illness, your medical history, what sort of person you are, and periods of stress or major life events that may have affected you.

Homeopathy Explained

Homeopathy is an established form of medicine that has been in use for over 200 years. It is gentle, yet effective, and can produce powerful and lasting results. Homeopathy is the use of highly dilute remedies to help to heal the body and mind. These remedies are made from a huge range of natural substances – plants, minerals and animal products – prepared in a precise way. When correctly chosen, remedies can help stimulate the system to heal itself.


As part of my work with women, I offer aromatherapy massage as well workshops on the use of essential oils for health and skin care.

Coming for Treatment

Whether you come for a full-body massage or an upper-body massage the priority is your wellbeing, comfort and enjoyment. A warm room, soft lighting and meditation music will help you make the most of your ‘me-time’.

Aromatherapy Explained

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to enhance physical and emotional wellbeing. All essential oils have distinct properties that can promote health. An aromatherapy massage is a healing treatment for mind, body and spirit using essential oils and the power of therapeutic touch.
