I was born in the south of Brazil and grew up in a farming family. We were raised to work alongside nature, to be as down to earth as possible and to shy away from the frivolous commodities modern society offers us. With this upbringing, we also learned to self-sufficient and to be independent.
I am married and a mother to a daughter and a son. My own two children have been brought up solely on homoeopathy since before birth, and I have witnessed first-hand how incredible homeopathy has been at supporting them to move easily through development stages and also overcome through acute illnesses without the need for antibiotics or other medicines.
I often think to myself that I don’t know what I would do without homeopathy for my kids, and feel very passionate about helping other families and youngsters and adults.
I live in Shefford, Bedfordshire, UK. I am a Doctor in Dentistry with and specialisation in Stomatology (oral medicine) and Pharmacology.
My introduction to Homeopathy occurred when I was nineteen years old and in university studying for a Dentistry degree. Since a young age, I suffered from recurrent sore throat and chronic tonsillitis.
My parents tried everything, even importing medication from Germany. Eventually a friend of my mother suggested I saw a homeopath. The small white pills helped me enormously and made me so curious!
I enrolled at the London College of Classical Homeopathy in 1994. This college later went on to pioneer the way for students of homeopathy could gain a BSc in Homeopathy through the University of Westminster.
I started practicing homeopathy in 1999. My teachers, amongst others, were Tony Hurley, Mike Andrews, Bill Rumble, Jerome Whitney, Annie Santo and Sheilagh Creasy whose experience in homeopathy spanned over 50 years.
I carried on with my professional development with the late Sheilagh Creasy until 2018. My further CPD studies have been with Erik Van Woensel, Hillary Dorrian, Dr Robin Murphy and Dr Andre Saine among others.
We have always been an “outdoorsy” family and when the kids were younger, we used to go on rural holidays in Scotland where we would visit nature reserves, go on low-level hikes etc.
I love going for walks in nature and until very recently I used to go with my husband to the higher hills in northern England and even the mountains of Scotland.
When I am not working or cooking you can find me with our two dogs walking somewhere where there is peace, birds, trees, and a river.
I love playing the piano which I started learning a while ago. For me playing the piano is very relaxing almost like meditation.
I also practice Kundalini yoga for physical activity and well-being.
My approach is related to taking back responsibility for your health and finding the help or supports your body has been asking for as an individuality. For this reason, I endeavour to get to know my patients during the consultation and working with them to improve their vitality and health. Ultimately the patients heal themselves by having commitment to the treatment and appointments sessions.
I will also suggest tips, advice needed so the patient can start to figure out what your symptoms are trying to tell you and what you can do to assist it. That way you will start to experience and understand the true power of your body’s in-built autonomic healing capabilities and how homeopathy works. As consultations and the treatment progress we together, will be making the changes needed to deal with the malware and reset the inbuilt self-healing mechanism you were born with.
Homeopathic doses are perhaps the strongest.
