What is Homoeopathy?

Homoeopathy is a rational system of medicine based upon principles that are easy to understand and follow the laws of Nature.

Firstly: Symptom Similarity.

A medicine is carefully selected for you that, in tests upon healthy people, causes very similar symptoms to your own: ‘like cures like’. This healing principle has been observed for thousands of years.

Secondly: Minimum Dose.

The medicine is prescribed in the least amount necessary to stimulate a curative response within you. This is simple, obvious and good science.

Thirdly: Single Medicine.

Medicines are prescribed one at a time. This is also simple, obvious and good science.


Homoeopathy is effective: good evidence exists to support this (see Homoeopathy-A Rational Choice in Medicine).

Homoeopathy is safe: generally, your homoeopathic medicine will help you or else do nothing.

Homoeopathy is ethical: big money is not being made and big advertising campaigns are not being mounted to persuade or frighten you into visiting us.

Homoeopathy is ecological: the medicines do no harm to either your internal ecology, or to the biosphere of the planet.

Homoeopathy is inexpensive: relative to your hairdresser, your plumber or your mechanic and especially to private mainstream medical treatment.

What can Homoeopathy help you with?

Almost any complaint that you would take to a GP could benefit from a homoeopathic approach. Health relates to mental and emotional, as well as physical, aspects of us all and for years now we have been helping people to deal with a whole range of health problems.

We have helped people of all ages, backgrounds, beliefs and professions. We have helped men, women and children return themselves to health. We have supported them through all the phases of life from childbirth through childhood, adolescence and middle life into old age and increasing maturity. We have been able to offer help through the stresses and strains, the trials and tribulations, the ups and downs, the joys and sorrows that come with human life. And we have felt enormously privileged.

You do not have to believe in homoeopathy but you may want to give it a chance. Find out for yourself. Make your own experience.

What is involved in treatment?

The initial consultation involves a detailed exploration of your health problems, your symptoms and how they affect the quality of your life. Your personal and family medical histories are carefully examined and your nature and way of being are explored gently yet thoroughly. The homoeopathic consultation offers a unique experience and most people find this initial consultation very helpful in its own right, even before a medicine is prescribed.


We then offer you feedback on what we have perceived in you, your disease and your life situation. We make some suggestions as to how you might help your self to get better and then we prescribe a medicine on the basis of everything that we have discovered about you. The purpose of the medicine is to stimulate your own natural healing abilities so that you can, in time, restore yourself to health.


Follow-up appointments are made to follow and support your healing process. The number and frequency depends entirely on you and your situation. We may prescribe other medicines for you or suggest other therapies to help you further. We are clear that, whilst homoeopathy is a wonderful system of medicine, it cannot help everyone all the time. No system of medicine can reasonably claim to so and we are more than happy to own our limitations and, where necessary, refer you back to your GP or on to another practitioner.


Ill health is increasing and we are committed to the establishment of an integrated system of healthcare in this country. This means all of us working together for our common good.

Central to your healing process is YOU. Humans are wonderful at repairing and healing themselves. Our task is to provide just enough of the best stimulus to that process and then allow you to restore yourself.

The homoeopathic process is empowering of you and your way of being in the world.
