Jacquie first discovered homeopathic medicine in the 1990’s on the recommendation of a friend when her daughter was suffering from recurrent infections. She was feeling at the end of her tether so started to explore options in addition to repeated antibiotic prescriptions. She was so impressed by the improvement in her daughter’s health after she had visited a homeopath that she made an appointment for herself and was astonished by the improvement in her health following treatment for mobility issues, digestive problems and hay fever.
When the opportunity arose to study homeopathic medicine she was absolutely delighted, having always been attracted to wildlife, nature and interested in a natural, environmentally friendly approach to healing avoiding the side effects of conventional medicine. She received a high standard of tuition in classical homeopathy with clinical experience during 4 years of training at the award winning British School of Homeopathy.
Her passion and enthusiasm for homeopathy continues to grow and in November 2013 she resigned from her position within the NHS where she had been employed for many years to allow time to focus fully on building her homeopathy practice. Coming from an NHS background she is fully aware of the importance and benefits of working in collaboration with general practitioners, health practitioners and other therapists to complement the care that offered and is keen to encourage integrative working where appropriate.
Jacquie first observed the benefits of using flower essences alongside homeopathy following recommendation from a friend when her daughter was competing at a high level on her horse and stress levels were up. Flower Essences can safely be used to compliment the homeopathic prescription. To further her knowledge in the use of flower essences she undertook ‘Bach Flower for Homeopaths’ training and often recommends essences to compliment the homeopathic prescription.
Jacquie is a proud member of the The Society of Homeopaths. The Society of Homeopaths is the largest professional governing body for homeopaths within the UK with a strict criteria of membership. Members are all trained to a high standard and are bound to adhere to a strict code of ethics and practice. She is on a voluntary register that has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
What can I expect when I see a Homeopath?
Using a holistic approach the homeopathic consultation and treatment differs from conventional medicine in that rather than focusing on a specific named disease/diagnosis all factors which have the potential to impact on health are taken into account; lifestyle, environmental influences, stress factors, diet, medical history, sleep patterns, etc.
During a consultation you will receive a thorough assessment. You will be supported, listened to, treated with respect, empathy and without judgement. As a professional practitioner Jacquie is bound to adhere to a strict code of conduct and confidentiality.
Working on the homeopathic principle of “like cures like” homeopathic prescriptions are individually tailored to match as closely as possible all the symptoms you are suffering from, (e.g. if you are suffering from both asthma and eczema, and your symptoms are worse at a specific time of day or month of the year a homeopath will endeavour to try to find the closest prescription which incorporates all these factors).
You will not be asked to remove your clothing or have an invasive physical examination. If you require a diagnosis for your condition you must contact your general practitioner or other health care professional.
