Matching your symptoms to a natural remedy
“ Homoeopathy attracted me because it is so subtle, so discreet and so effective in approach to the whole human being, and I have certainly met some remarkable people who practice it. For me, it is a personal preference, as I find that the world deals these days so much in terms of size and mass and volume and is always striving for bigger mass and bigger volume. This mentality that seems to dominate is meeting one mass with a greater one in order to overcome the lesser. This is, of course, nonsense, as any thinking human being knows, for it does not apply to human life. Many people close to me have benefited from homoeopathy. ”
Sir Yehudi Menuhin
Homoeopathy is a sustainable, holistic system of medicine - developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in the 1790's - using natural remedies, prescribed on an individualized basis. It has been around for over 230 years, and has amassed huge amounts of clinical data.
Its first main principle is that of using a natural substance, whose expression as experienced by human volunteer 'provers' is similar to your own symptoms: 'Like treats Like'. 'Homoeo' means 'same'. We use this principle instead of using opposites (eg. 'anti-biotics', 'anti-fungal'). The second principle is that of using only the minimum dose, just the smallest amount needed to stimulate the body's own healing response.
Homoeopathy takes the whole individual into account, rather than just specific symptoms or named diseases. That mind and body are intrinsically linked is integral to the homoeopathic view of health. It is useful for helping people through many diverse physical, mental, and/or emotional health situations.
Each persons story is uniquely different. Therefore, a homoeopathic consultation can take up to 2 hours, giving you the space to discuss what's troubling you.
Homoeopathy is tailored to match each persons history and current levels of vitality.
I have been interested in homoeopathy since the age of 14 - at 17 it had a miraculous effect on my life- and I've been a dedicated practitioner since 2007, when I graduated from the Welsh School of Homoeopathy.
I love helping patients to go through their health histories in order to find meaning in, and solutions to, their dis-ease. It is incredibly rewarding work, especially when people are amazed by the gentle power of the homeopathic similimum.
My children have been brought up with homoeopathy, and I have tended to veer towards working with children and women, but I am happy to consult with all ages and genders while providing a safe and nurturing atmosphere in which to heal. My husband is a big fan of homoeopathy -he has a very physical job, and he has seen what the correctly chosen remedy can do for all manner of minor and some major! accidents and injuries.
I encourage the exploration of the Inner Self through behavioural analysis, through expressions of art and poetry, play, discussions of dreams, sensations and unique memories and linguistic phrases!

“ I found homoeopathy after my second child was born and I felt she needed help as she was so quiet and sleepy and as if she wasn't quite all present. The midwives couldn't help and I was looking for alternatives, and found Jo. Jo was very approachable, friendly and very accepting of what I felt was a very strange description of how I knew things just weren't quite right with my daughter. She patiently took everything on board and prescribed a remedy for her and all I can say is it was like magic, literally as soon as I popped it in her mouth she just sprang to life! I was amazed and haven't looked back since. What I love about homoeopathy is it treats you as a whole; physically, energetically and mentally. Jo creates a safe space for you to talk about what's going on, she is a great listener, and is able to bring what might seem like random issues together into a remedy that works for you. Jo has been treating my whole family for 5 years and is a wonderful support and has helped with all manor of illnesses and conditions, both mental and physical. I'm so glad we found homoeopathy and Jo, and I can't recommend her highly enough! ”
“ I have used homoeopathy to different degrees throughout my whole life, witnessing great success with anything for clearing skin problems to saving my sister from a life-threatening acute illness. Since bringing my 3 children to Jo, my faith and love for homoeopathy has really grown. I now get excited by seeing how much it can offer. I didn't know I could love it more! Observing Jo ask questions to make a picture and match a remedy is so amazing. My children really get on with Jo and the results from the remedies she has prescribed for them have been incredible. ”
“ Jo is a great homoeopath, she has a very holistic and intuitive approach, and will go the extra mile to find the best suitable remedy for you. She is very committed and is always available for follow ups whenever I need her or for a bit of advice. I am glad we have had her recommended to us. I can very much recommend her. ”
“ Thank you so much! My (presenting symptoms) are nowhere near as painful as they were before, when I was keeling over with the pain. Thank you, you've done what the doctors couldn't. I don't know what you located as the source of the problem, or how the remedies worked, but they have! ”
“ I had a rash for over 3 years...After a remedy from Jo, it changed and moved from my head all the way down my legs, eventually disappearing altogether. Jo patiently explained that this was all part of the 'law of cure'. It's been gone for 6 months now... I'm very glad I tried homoeopathy ”
