Support & Supervision

I am writing to encourage you to take up supervision, and to share my experience of many years of enthusiastic practice, teaching and scholarship. I trained at the College of Homeopathy in London, with post graduate work in Greece with George Vithoulkas and Vassilis Gehgas; and in India, with Subrata K Banerjea and SP Dey. I have been in full time practice since 1984 (in the NHS from 1990 to 2003).

I am a Fellow of the Society of Homeopaths, editor of our journal for the 10 years, and now Hon Secretary for the 2nd time. I have written many articles, a research report and a book. I taught homeopathy at the University of Westminster, and also at Amsterdam, Chichester, Galway, Helsinki, London, Manchester, Prague, San Francisco, Seattle, Stockholm...

Professional supervision

I have been doing supervision and tutorials since I became a social work supervisor in 1969 and a university teacher in 1974. One of my first contributions to The Homeopath was an article on 'Feelings of a new homeopath', where I shared my experience of the tears of homeopathic practice. The day I fail to be moved by the plight of my patients is the day I shall retire. I had to learn to become the unprejudiced observer, and how to harness powerful emotions for constructive use, in the human relationships which accompany the search for the simillimum. This is always a major focus of supervision.

My website www.homeopathyhelpline.com is ready for online consultations. Tell your friends in distant places.

Second opinions

If you are in a quandary with a patient and would like another opinion you may consult by phone or email, or best of all, accompany the patient to see me for a joint consultation. Teamwork can produce a result.

Working in general practice

Discussion of my 13 years’ work in NHS primary care. I can advise you on the human and practical aspects of NHS work. The Society has published a research report, a survey of my work with 500 NHS patients which was followed up by a journal article. Copies are available here Articles & Resources.

Library research collection

I have a unique personal library of some 10,750 volumes (and still growing), on every aspect of homeopathy including books and journals in French and German. I can suggest further reading. My office is a clear demonstration that Sulphur did not work. but these old and new books are a wonderful resource for my visitors. If you are working on a research project here are the books which no one else has available, from 1830 until today, from around the world, from Abrams to van der Zee.

Computer Study

Homeopathy has definitely arrived in the 21st century. You will benefit from online access to around 800 of the latest and classic homeopathic literature. If you have the programs I can help you make the best use of the amazing range of data and features in MacRepertory and ReferenceWorks.

Writing for publication

As former editor of The Homeopath for a total of ten years, and author of many reviews, clinical and historical articles and 2 books, I can help you plan and review your creative homeopathic writing.
