Welcome! Homeopathy is more than you might expect.

I offer an exceptionally high standard of homoeopathic treatment and patient care to help acute and chronic complaints in adults and children
and support a healthy lifestyle for people from all walks of life.

When working with my patients, I try to create a professional, yet caring, relaxing and supportive environment.

Homoeopathic treatment is, particularly in cases of long-standing problems, not a quick fix or a one-way system, but very much a collaborative effort between the patient and myself.  That way, I am proud to say, we can very often achieve wonderful results!

 

Homeopathy The highest ideal of cure is the rapid and permanent restoration of health .... in the shortest, most reliable and most harmless way. Samuel Hahnemann, founder of Homoeopathy

Homeopathy is an effective, scientifically well-founded form of treatment. It is based in the ancient Greek and Arabic medical systems and was established more than 200 years ago by a German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann.
By using homeopathic remedies, the person is stimulated to regain their balance and therefore wellbeing. Homeopathic medicine treats the whole person rather than the disease in isolation.
Together with Acupuncture, Chiropractic and Osteopathy, it is one of the four most widely sought-after forms of alternative treatment in the UK, and is even supported by the Royal Family!

Homeopathy is based on the Law of Similars. This states that any substance which can cause symptoms in a healthy human being, whether emotional or physical, can restore to health an individual showing similar symptoms, when they appear as symptoms of disease.

Frequently asked questions:

  • Does Homeopathy actuall work? YES! There is a growing body of evidence. Please visit the site of the BHA and the Society of Homeopaths.
  • Is Homeopathy safe? YES! Therefore it is highly recommended for pregnant women and babies.
  • Do I have to stop my other medication? NO! Homeopathy integrates with conventional medicine and does not interfere with any medication you might be taking.
  • What are the remedies made from? They are all natural, made from plant, animal and mineral sources.
  • Could I get addicted to those remedies? NO! Homeopathy is not addictive.

The Homeopathic Consultation The consultation is an important part of homeopathic treatment and can contribute to the healing process.

A comprehensive first consultation with an adult usually lasts one-and-a-half hours; about an hour with children. During that time we will talk about your illness(es) and symptoms and also investigate many other aspects of your life, some of which might seem completely unrelated. This will include your medical and family history, food preferences, sleeping patterns, how you cope with stress and the effects of the environment.

Your case is then carefully analyzed, which takes about as long as the time spent with you, and you will be prescribed a remedy which matches your symptoms.

Follow-up appointments can be made at three to six week intervals with the aim of improving your general level of health and well-being.

You may then only need occasional visits to help you overcome any problems that might surface on the way.

I went to Brigitte for help in bolstering my immune system to keep me healthy through the winter months. The consultation was very calm and relaxed, with Brigitte listening carefully to my symptoms and clarifying their exact nature.  The remedy Brigitte prescribed for me was excellent for my problem.  I avoided most of the colds and coughs. I caught a mild cold just at the end of my busy season at a time when I was working all hours, including evenings and weekends, and that was the only cold since taking the remedy. I would highly recommend a consultation with Brigitte to others in similar situations. Miranda P.

I have contacted Brigitte six years ago when my son suffered from reoccurring tonsillitis.
Ever since I am keeping close contact with Brigitte with now my second son and my husband being her patients as well.
Brigitte's ability to analyze an acute illness or a patient's constitution is an incredible experience, taking into account every aspect of the patients life.
Brigitte's homoeopathic treatments have had a very positive impact on the overall wellbeing of my family and there has not been a situation when her prescribed remedies did not have the effect we were hoping for. Ursula R
