After completing my medical training in Cape Town, I came to the UK in 1986 to do my GP training. I discovered homoeopathy during my GP Registrar year, and have never looked back! After deciding not to practise as a GP but to pursue homoeopathy full-time, I worked as an SHO at the Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital for 2 years before getting my MFHom. I set up a private homoeopathic practice in Scotland, before moving to Bristol in 2002. I work one day a week at Bristol Homeopathic Hospital (now PCIM) and have a busy private practice in the city. In August 2015 I was elected medical dean of the Faculty of Homeopathy.
I am very involved in teaching homoeopathy to healthcare professionals both in the UK and abroad. I continue to pursue my own learning of homoeopathy, which is a never ending process! My main teachers are Rajan Sankaran in Mumbai, Dr Massimo Mangialavori in Italy and Dr Jan Scholten in Holland. I have attended two seminars with Peter Tumminello, the Australian homeopath and gemologist who introduced most of the Gemstone remedies to the Materia Medica, and I have found them invaluable in my practice over the last 18 months.
