About Me and My Practice

I was born in India of New Zealand parents. At the age of 13 our family returned to Auckland, though I have since visited India as an adult. In New Zealand, I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Religion from Massey University, studied nursing, became a Registered Nurse, and worked as a staff nurse in Palmerston North Hospital. Later, I lived in Germany and studied classical homoeopathy. I obtained the Diploma of Homoeopathy from the School of Homoeopathy in Devon, UK. Now, I live in Dunedin, have three daughters, and have been practicing as a homoeopath since 2000. I am a classical homoeopath and treat a wide range of ailments in my practice, for both adults and children. During the first consultation, I talk with the client and get a thorough history, before prescribing a remedy that will match the client's individual symptoms and disease pattern. Clients may find that not only their physical symptoms improve but also their general sense of wellbeing.
