I discovered the power of alternative medicine when my eldest daughter, who at the age of eight almost lost her hearing, was healed with homeopathy (read full story here). I originally worked as a producer for the BBC World Service and as newspaper journalist after achieving a BA from Birkbeck College in politics, philosophy and history. I then went on to found and co-found a number of companies in the UK and Spain, including a language translation business. Although I loved the challenge of running companies, I was inspired by my daughter's 'miraculous cure', and eventually decided to take a more holistic approach to life and several years ago, made a life changing career decision, which I have never regretted, to train formally and take up practicing alternative medicine as a profession.
Initially I trained as a classical homeopath with the renowned International Academy of Homeopathy in Greece, before completing a postgraduate diploma at the College of Practical Homeopathy in London. While already practising homeopathy, I also trained in auricular and facial acupuncture, dry needling (Western Acupuncture) as well as energy healing. In my practice, I often combine various therapies, as this speeds up the healing process.
I took over Nova Clinic in 2017, setting out to provide various natural health therapies all under one roof. Like most therapists I offer one-to-one consultations and treatments. But I believe that everyone should be able to access alternative therapies, regardless of their income. And so, in our clinic we promote natural therapies in other ways too. Once a month we hold Wellness Day, when the therapies are provided at a fraction of the usual cost. I also run very relaxing regular Candlelit Acupuncture sessions both in our practice and in other community settings. I am committed to making alternative and complementary medicine more accessible to enable more people to discover the power of natural healing.
