Homeopathy has been my passion for 37 years. I have 15 years of Practice experience and 37 years of experience, using first aid and birth remedies studying and then qualifying and becoming a Fully qualified and Registered Homeopath having joined the Society of Homeopaths and then growing into Full-time Practice. Although homeopathy is currently not yet available on the NHS, . It took me 7 years of study, to become a Homeopath and I continue to update my knowledge and awareness through Continuing Professional Development Workshops. I have extended and specialised my study by learning from the Indian Homeopaths, in particular the Sensation Method as taught by Rajan Sankaran. I travelled to Goa, India in 2009 to attend a Seminar to learn in depth The Sensation Method as taught by Rajan Sankaran, Jayesh Shah, Dinesh Chuhan, Divya Choudhra, The Joshi's and others, learning how to find the closest simillimum or similar pattern matching picture as expressed by the individual suffering through the symptoms they are experiencing. The Sensation Method "looks" at and "listens" to the language of the individual patient as expressed through their symptoms and their own unique experience of the world. We all experience a different and unique story from the moment we are born (and some believe before birth also) and this experience "colours" our view of the world. Thus, we all experience the world in a very different way and "play out" this experience in our lives in a healthy way and a less healthy way. When we are "suffering" this is expressed by way of "symptoms" and it is our own unique way of understanding that things are no longer in a state of harmony and balance and this is reflected "without" and can be seen reflected like a mirror lens in our lives. The different Kingdoms all have a place in the Natural World of which we are a part (Animal, Mineral, Plant) and all have their own language to express their experience of their world. For example Animal behaviour is about survival and competition, sexuality and threat from predators. They often form 'families" or groups in order to survive. Minerals have different issues some regarding structure and power and fear of or loss of this in their lives. Plants are extremely sensitive and are very much subjected to the environment around them which either sustains them or not as the case maybe. In addition to this, Homeopaths are now working with many different remedies including Radioactive Remedies because we are all now exposed to varying degrees of this kind of fragmentation breakdown and toxicity in the world, especially after Nuclear accidents, or experimental bomb detonation and more recently the Fukashima accident.
Homeopathy in my experience is a gentle and deeply profound way of healing. It is not necessarily a "quick fix" unless you take a First Aid remedy such as Arnica for a bruise or shock. It is in my experience more a process of healing through transformation and change. I think a good analogy is digging your garden over. You have to get out all the old debris, lumps bumps and and oxygenate, refresh and purify the soil before planting your seeds, if you want to grow beautifully healthy and vibrant plants. Homeopathy is a process whereby you are achieving this beautiful fresh new soil for a healthy and vibrant garden, that will nurture and nourish your health well being, inner peace and creative potential.
Homeopathy fits in with Quantum Physics and is not part of the conventional drug culture we know at present. It is a very different system of healing and works not with suppression as in conventional medicine or drugs, often with side effects that need further medication to counteract the side effects and in some cases cause drug dependency. Homeopathy works by supporting and energising your own healing ability and energetic system (your immune system) rebalancing you to a healthier state, where your well being and general health are energised, improved, more in harmony, and more vital. If you talk to a Quantum Physicist, they understand the words "energy fields" and "patterns" because they study and see this all around us in nature. Homeopathy works in the same way. We look at the "energy field of the individual patient and the "pattern" of their disease or illness as expressed in the symptom picture they are experiencing.
There are many different remedies to help you on a First Aid basis, on a seasonal basis (flu's, coughs, colds, bronchitis, pleurisy, hangovers etc) sports injuries, bereavement, separation, divorce, during any difficult and stressful time, and in my experience homeopathy at these times takes the "rough edge" off the situation and relieves the stress in a non suppressive and healthy way, supporting you, helping you to cope and stay in balance whilst you are going through what may be a traumatic time. We cannot control life, but we can take responsibility for our own health and a healthy response to the knocks and challenges we all experience as we go through life.
I am a mother and a grandmother, and I value relationships. I love to cook and make jams, jellies and home preserves and also to make things with my hands. I love beauty in all its forms and enjoy creating tranquil and lovely surroundings. "A thing of beauty is a joy forever, its loveliness will not fade and it will never pass into nothingness". I love my home.
I have been to Life Drawing workshops and enjoy pastel work and some painting too, and discovered to my surprise that it gave a great outlet in terms of expression of emotion and passion.
I write poetry, and enjoy reading. I sing in a small Chorale both sacred and secular music. I love music, in all its variety of forms both ancient and modern, popular music and jazz. I sing folk music and play basic guitar. I love to dance. …….
I enjoy cycling, and walking in nature I love the beauty of the natural world. I enjoy pottering around my garden and pots, I enjoy swimming (preferably in a warm sea!) and I love the sun and admit to basking when I can in it! I like to laugh a lot, and love making dinners for friends and family. It is important to me to grow and develop my spirituality. I try to live in as whole a way as I can without causing suffering unduly to others though I am human and fallible and not perfect……….
