I was born and brought up in London, but spent my holidays in Bristol, the city that my mother came from. After university I spent many years travelling and doing different types of work in many different places, till in 1989 I moved with my husband and two small sons to Helsinki, Finland, where I lived for almost the next 30 years. I learnt Finnish, and eventually worked as an interpreter. ..
In Finland I discovered homeopathy, and never looked back. I graduated in classical homeopathy from the Kairon Institute of Natural Medicine in Helsinki in 2004, and set up a homeopathic practice there the following year. For three years I was on the board of the Finnish Homeopathic Society, Suomen Homeopaatit Ry.
As well as practising in Finland, I have been three times (2014, 2015, and 2018) to work in Tanzania on the HOMEOPATHY FOR HEALTH IN AFRICA (HHA) project based in Moshi, near Kilimanjaro. This project runs a number of free outreach and hospital clinics in the region, and does a lot of work with AIDS patients. For more information on this project, visit
Continued professional development
Since graduating I have continued to regularly attend a great many seminars and courses on different aspects of homeopathy, and hold the postgraduate Diploma of the Dynamis School of Advanced Homeopathy.
I am registered with The Alliance of Registered Homeopaths.
