Registered Pharmacist and Homeopath
I treat individuals with an holistic approach examining all their lives and look for solutions which they can understand and which empower them to take greater control of their health. I neither reject conventional medicine nor accept alternative medicine uncritically.
I regard illness as a set of physical symptoms and consider the way a person looks at life, their choices and decisions.
I believe that symptoms rarely occur in isolation but are usually linked to a person’s lifestyle. Illness occurs when there are imbalances in any of the physical emotional or spiritual aspects of life.
This may sound a little airy fairy but I am a very down to earth no nonsense sort of person and offer a lot of common sense.
I have run my own community pharmacy in the centre of Edinburgh for 15 years, I am a former President of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. I have a broad range of experience including appointments to Government bodies e.g. MHRA.
I am a trustee for a pension fund, and sit on the advisory board of the Academy of Pharmaceutical Science.
Recognising that the patient needs to help themselves for long term health gain I aim to empower them and guide them to enable them to achieve a greater state of equilibrium.
