Gerti Magee Homeopath
My name is Gerti, and when I had four young children I came across a little booklet about homeopathy. I didn’t know much about it, I actually thought it meant all things natural, including herbal teas! Anyway, I bought the booklet, read it and was fascinated. The next thing was to try out the remedies with my family, the first success being chillblains that vanished in two days and never returned. After that, there wasn’t an antibiotic used in our house for many years, and I never looked back!
Later on I decided to train as a homeopath because I just needed to understand this whole thing properly. I spent four happy and very interesting years at the Burren School of Homeopathy in Ireland.
Now I am running a busy family practice, looking after adults and children with lots of different health issues, both acute and chronic. In this modern world, issues like anxiety and stress also feature prominently in my consulting room. I experience a colourful mix of ailments and personalities every week and I enjoy the fact that each person is so different!
During my consultations I want all of my clients to feel relaxed and comfortable. While we are exploring areas of your life and health together, some new awareness is often created which is helpful for your healing process.
I live in the West of Ireland, not far from the sea, and I love the landscape that surrounds me. When I’m not doing homeopathy I can be found in the garden, tending to the flowers, the veggies and the apple trees, or walking with my husband in the hills or along the shore. Our children are all grown up and we are lucky to have several grandchildren.
My special areas of interest are women’s and children’s health, particularly pregnancy and the post-partum period. I also like to help shy or anxious children to become happy and confident. Women’s reproductive cycles can get out of balance quite easily through physical or emotional influences. Homeopathy can help regulate your hormones, giving you more energy and emotional balance in your day-to-day life, as well as dealing with the physical manifestations of hormonal disturbance.
Close to my heart are also new mums, babies and young children. Pregnancy, childbirth, the newborn period and the early years of a child’s life are very special times. The gentle homeopathic remedies are ideal to deal with the common problems of pregnancy as well as those of a newborn baby. They can help wonderfully to alleviate anxiety and worries and to restore calm.
One group of children I love to treat are those that are a little shy, a little anxious, a bit reluctant to engage with the world. When they are given the remedies they need, they are free to develop healthily and to blossom.
I was delighted with our experience with Gerti. I brought my little boy with an ongoing cough. Gerti was so patient, kind and thorough during her time with us. She chose the perfect remedy and my little boy’s cough cleared up completely. Also, he stopped having bad dreams too after taking the remedy. I would highly recommend Gerti.
I have been to visit Gerti’s clinic on a number of occasions and have always left with a great sense of clarity and reassurance. She is knowledgeable and an excellent listener which I felt was very important to me as she helped me cope with mental blocks and issues concerning sleep, anxiety and emotional stability. Gerti is very generous and my family and I have had a great experience with her support; it is clear that she is experienced and can listen to and understand people of any age.
