Treating the whole of you, holistically; mind and body.
How homeopathy heals
The holistic nature of homeopathy means I am helping you as a unique individual. Your body, mind, spirit and emotions are all taken into consideration.
Based on the principle of ‘like cures like,’ I then choose your homeopathic remedies. All remedies are from the natural world and could be plant, mineral or animal in origin. Taken in the form of a small sucrose or lactose pill, herbal tonics or tinctures, the remedies stimulate their own healing ability enabling your body to heal itself.
“Mia treated me for hormonal and stress related migraines. The hour long consultation was very thorough, yet not intrusive, and very sensitively led. I was prescribed a remedy in the form of a small sucrose pill to be taken everyday for 5 days which resulted in my troublesome and often debilitating migraines reducing until they became non-existent. All round a great success!”

What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a holistic form of medicine that treats the whole of you; your mind and body. As a homeopath, I see your body and mind as one. Homeopathic medicine was developed over 200 years ago by a respected German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann. Hahnemann believed ‘like cured like’. Homeopathic doctors treat their patients using this philiosophy of treating the dis-ease with the very same element that would cause the symptom in larger doses, and other methods.
Who can join?
Homeopathy is for everyone. Men, women, children, babies, even animals benefit from homeopathic treatment. Pregnant or breastfeeding women can take homeopathic remedies as there are no side effects. Stress, hormone problems, chronic illness, hayfever, allergies and asthma through to mental or emotional struggles and anxiety can all be treated successfully by a homeopath. Women’s health issues such as heavy periods, irregular cycles, infertility, or menopause benefit from this holistic approach. Childhood illness or slow development in children can all benefit from homeopathy.
How does it help me?
The benefits of homeopathy are numerous. Apart from its ability to resolve many illnesses, both minor and serious, homeopathy can re-balance your underlying state of health. This means many patients describe a feeling of greater emotional and mental clarity after treatment. Due to homeopathy’s very nature there are no side effects. Homeopathic treatments also include the ability to antidote some of the side effects of conventional medicine; they can be taken together.
What is a session like?
Homeopathy is based on ‘like cures like.’ Homeopathic remedies trigger your body’s ability to heal itself. Homeopaths give a remedy which is a highly diluted version of a product (or ‘toxin’) that in healthy people would cause a set of symptoms which are the same as the symptoms being treated in the patient. When your body reacts against the remedy it reacts against the symptoms too, and starts to heal itself. Homeopathy treats the cause of the ailment, unlike traditional medicine which often treats the symptoms only.
Why I want to help you the homeopathic way
We live in a fast paced, stressful modern world where often we are looking for a ‘quick fix’ to our problems. This ‘quick fix’ often comes in the form of modern medicines which only treat the presenting symptom and not the cause of the problem. Sometimes, modern medicine can mask, or cover up the true problem by relieving just the presenting symptoms. This can result in further physical, mental or emotional issues further down the line as the true cause of the problem has not been correctly diagnosed. As your homeopath, I treat the whole ‘you,’ and get to the very root of the problem.
Book your homeopathy session with me
Homeopathy treats the whole self and looks to unearth the cause of your ailment, as opposed to just treating the symptom. Homeopathy treats emotional and not just physical issues, your consultation will include:
- A thorough look into your lifestyle.
- Your eating habits and preferences.
- Temperament and personality.
- Your sleep patterns.
- Your medical history.
All these questions will help me form a complete picture of you. This picture will then be matched to the symptoms of your illness in order to prescribe a particular type and strength of homeopathic medicine.
As a guide, your first appointment could take up to an hour and a half with follow-up appointments typically lasting 30-45 minutes.
Please contact me to discuss any questions you may have and to book your homeopathy consultation.
How homeopathy came into my life
Homeopathy has been a natural progression in my own personal search for a more natural and holistic approach to my mental, physical and emotional health. I started to look at alternative and natural health much more deeply after the birth of my son. I suffered repeated bouts of tonsilitis for which I was prescribed various antibiotics. I felt there must be an underlying cause to my illness, for which the antibiotics were having little long-term effect, and possibly negative effects to the rest of my health. Finding a holistic approach to my health issues through homeopathy has improved all aspects of my wellbeing. This spurred me on to train as a homeopath and help others through this natural and alternative medicine.
