I also run a clinic from my home in Clungunford, Shropshire.

What is CEASE therapy?
CEASE Therapy (Complete Elimination of Autism Spectrum Expression). This uses orthomolecular treatment (to help the body detox) and isotherapy (to detox potential causative factors) alongside classical homeopathy
What cases would benefit from CEASE:
– patients that fail to respond to a well indicated homeopathic remedy
– cases where symptoms frequently relapse
– where there are identifiable causative factors that are clearly related to
current state of the patient either through timeline or symptom picture
– cases dominated by toxicity
– where there is an obstacle to cure
– not fully resolved through classical homeopathic treatment
– they have symptoms similar to autistic expression
In addition to offering this approach to my clients with Autism Spectrum Disorder, I have used it for patients with Asperger’s, ADHD, Polymyalgia and symptoms resulting from IVF treatment.
Contact me if you know anyone who you think might benefit from this approach.
How is Homeopathy different to conventional treatment?
Homoeopathy is Greek for ‘SIMILAR SUFFERING’ and was the original name given to this system of medicine by its founder.[Homeopathy is an Americanisation of the word and has been adopted on the Internet, so is now replacing the former.] Consideration is given to factors such as: your emotional state and thought patterns; reaction to foods, weather and temperature; the particular nature of your physical complaint (consideration must be given to the exact nature of your complaint. There is no one remedy for any condition, there are up to 3000 remedies to chose from and the one must be chosen which most exactly matches your symptom picture
People have often asked me what are you treating first. The answer is ALL of you. Conventional medicine treats people as a series of unconnected parts, so you will be given different medicines for different symptoms. Homoeopaths see all symptoms as being connected, it is YOU who has the rheumatic pain, the stomach pain and the depression. It is my aim to see which thread weaves these symptoms together and then to select a remedy which will re-establish balance in your system.
The aim of homoeopathic treatment is to stimulate your own self-healing powers. The single dose of the remedy could be compared in effect to that of dropping a pebble into a pond, the ripples continue long after the initial action. This is obviously different to conventional medication where repeated doses are given to suppress symptoms, rather than the homoeopathic approach which seeks to treat the causative factors. Antibiotics kill bacteria, homoeopathy treats the ‘soil’ on which the bacteria grow so that they can no longer live there.
Do you still offer homeopathic supervision?
Yes, I supervise homeopathic students and graduates via Skype and in SY7.
What about seeing a GP?
We recommend that you should maintain your relationship with your GP. Your GP will be able to arrange any tests or X-rays you may need. Homeopathy has an alternative philosophy but by working in this way with your GP the two systems of health care can provide complementary services.
I frequently refer patients to discuss their symptoms with their GP.
Homeopathy is safe to use alongside conventional treatments and is ideal for pateints looking for a holistic approach to enhance their wellbeing.
