Licensed Classical Homeopath
I was introduced to homeopathy in my early 20s by a friend who said that I don’t know how it works but it just does! We were having breakfast at our usual café on the seafront and she was explaining homeopathy is natural and a holistic approach to health. She suddenly realised she wasn’t wearing sunglasses – 2 weeks into taking her remedy she no longer had the debilitating streaming eyes she experienced every day of her life whenever she stepped outdoors. This was good enough for me.
I was struggling with life and searching for my place in the world and based on her recommendation I started seeing a homeopath. Experiencing the serenity of her consulting room, with the wall of books bearing titles of gravitas, like Materia Medica, and the cabinet with hundreds of little brown bottles inside, all neatly labelled, containing tiny white balls that I came to know as remedies, somehow felt like a glimpse into my future world, and it was thrilling!
Although it was many years later that I started my homeopathic training, my healing and transformation and a passion for homeopathy had begun, and it was receiving homeopathic treatment again that inspired me to study. I had worked in Health and Social Care from aged 19 onwards as a practitioner, manager and trainer of services. After relocating to Manchester, I suffered persistent bouts of labyrinthitis. I found a local homeopath and the treatment quickly restored my balance in every way. The time was right and I began my training a few weeks later.
I studied Classical Homeopathy for 4 years at The North-West college of Homeopathy and am a Homeopathy International member. I regularly attend CPD events and forums and read, study, and keep updated. Each patent teaches me something new. Homeopathy is lifelong learning!
I love everything about being a homeopath. My best friend says it’s because I like detective novels! I love creating that hallowed space for someone to share their world and what it is to be them, noticing and analysing the clues the mind and body reveal about what has created dis-ease and what needs to be cured, and exploring all our wonderful remedies to find the best fit. Mostly, I like to help people. Homeopathy and the person receiving it do the rest.
I live a simple life and enjoy spending time with friends, reading, gardening, cooking, dancing, and singing to the radio; most weekends are spent at the allotment enjoying our beautiful kitchen garden.
I look forward to meeting you!
My Special Interest
My special interest is in working with people with insomnia.
Many factors affect our sleep; for example, pain, anxiety, depression, lifestyle and menopause. Chronic insomnia can cause fatigue, mood disorder, poor brain performance, weight gain, low libido, low immunity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and a lowered life expectancy.
As a homeopath, I focus on the person, their individual symptoms and the causes and effects of insomnia on their mental, emotional and physical health. I work with homeopathy to gently stimulate their natural ability to heal and enjoy improved levels of health and wellbeing.
“I’m not feeling negative… I don’t feel any pressure from it at all. It’s not there…my thoughts are quite good at the moment …it only really crops up if I’m in a situation where I’ve not been able to do whatever I planned to do but it’s not… it’s not there all the time or there’s no pressure from it at all and I don’t really notice it. I am getting to sleep earlier now and sleeping well still especially now I don’t have any nights with acid reflux, so I’ve not really noticed it. I don’t feel negatively at the moment…I’m feeling very positive and just doing what I can do…. It’s now knowing that fundamentally I’m ok and I’m now grateful for a lot of things and yeah, I just feel ok …I feel really good.”

‘The anxiety just didn’t come back, this has been incredible for me, it was like you were calling out to me when you came into my mind that day, with knowing you and what you are doing, I thought yes! Biba can help me and you have helped me so much. I feel I can cope and if I can’t I’ll be straight back to you. You have to be open to these things; I tell everyone that homeopathy works! You have to be open; I say to people that I had terrible anxiety and was really worried about being depressed and you cured it. I’ve told 2 girls at work to come! If anytime I need anything treating, I will be back in touch. Thank you so much.”
“You have helped me so much, you have been excellent with me and I think the world of you and I have to tell you I was a bit…well, I wasn’t sure when my daughter suggested it but you have made such a difference to my health…I feel 5 years younger… you have been very caring, very good to me, and thank you.”
