People often ask me, “what led you to become a homeopath and why are you so passionate about it?”
The answer to that is:
Looking back on my life, I realized that from a very young age, I have been interested in my own health and helping others achieve health and wellbeing. I was particularly attracted to natural methods of healing that were gentle and non-invasive.
At the point in my life when I just had one small child, I was fortunate to have met someone who introduced me to homeopathy. I was immediately attracted to this form of medicine because it was natural and gentle as well as recognizing that one size does not fit all. It provided the tools to treat the individual mind and body by aiding your body’s own natural healing ability.
Like many of you, I did not have much money and I loved the fact that the remedies were inexpensive and you only need one at a time. All symptoms are taken into consideration and the person is treated holistically with one remedy. There is no need for many different drugs, one for the heart, one for depression, one for your flu etc. each with their side effects and interactions.
For simple, everyday ailments such as bruises, colds, flus, earaches, teething, urinary tract infections etc. I was able to teach myself how to treat my family. I successfully raised three daughters without needing to use antibiotics or conventional pain and fever relief medicines. For other ailments, I consulted a professionally trained homeopath.
When my children were older and had left home, I decided to change careers and become a homeopath. I had no idea, when I made this decision, that homeopathy had so much to offer and that it could often bring about profound changes to people’s lives, mentally, emotionally and physically.

What is Occupational Therapy?
"Occupational Therapy is a profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of every day life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by enabling people to do things that will enhance their ability to participate or by modifying the environment to better support participation."

Who would benefit from seeing an occupational Therapist?
Occupational therapists work with people of all ages and from all works of life who, because of illness, accident or circumstance are unable to participate in their chosen occupations. This includes self care, leisure and productivity such as volunteer work or paid employment.
Do you feel like your life is falling apart due to anxiety, stress, depression, trauma, grief and loss, psychotic illness, mood disorder, eating disorder, personality disorder, dementia, family problems or learning and adjustment difficulties?
As an occupational therapist with training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy I provide individualised and collaborative care to help you to effectively reduce stress, manage emotions and increase vitality.
For the last five years I have been part of a specialist team which offers support, strategies and solutions in the field of aged care and dementia.
For those that are open to a combination of therapies I combine the two modalities of occupational therapy and homeopathy to help speed recovery.
