I am of German and Spanish origins born and raised in Paris. After
graduating from one of the top French business schools I worked for
over 10 years in Investment Banking in Paris, Tokyo, Frankfurt and
London where I have been living since 2001.
I decided to leave the world of Finance in 2008 and chose to
dedicate my energy to my biggest passion, Homeopathy, which
entered my life when I was 2 months of age. I graduated from the
Centre of Homeopathic Education in London where I gained my
Licentiate and BSc (Hons) degree in Homeopathy.
While running a busy practice where I see patients of all ages and
backgrounds who seek safe, natural, holistic, non-addictive and
non-toxic solutions to their physical, physiological, mental or
emotional health concerns, I am also a director of the board of the
Society of Homeopaths and am completing my qualification to
become an accredited counsellor.
My other major interests are History, Analytical psychology and the
latest scientific developments on the properties of water,
nanoparticles and electromagnetism.
People seek homeopathic treatment for a variety of acute and
chronic health problems such as allergies, arthritis, asthma, chronic
pain conditions, digestive issues, ear infections, hay fever, high
blood pressure, insomnia, mental health conditions, such as
depression, stress and anxiety, and skin conditions such as acne
and eczema. It can also be used for minor issues like bruises,
scrapes, toothaches, nausea, coughs, and colds.
During your appointment, I will listen to you carefully in order to get
to know you as well as possible. I will also ask you a number of
questions about your mental, emotional, and physical health.
The 200-year old homeopathic Materia Medica allows to make use
of many symptoms that conventional medicine ignores and thus to
apply them into my prescription. So, after analyzing your case I will
prescribe you the remedy that best matches all of your relevant
symptoms in order to tailor the treatment to you.
I also offer consultations in French, German and Spanish and can

Homeopathy is a safe system of medicine, which aims to assist the natural tendency of the body to heal itself. It recognises that all symptoms of ill health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person and that it is the patient who needs treatment and not just the disease. It therefore may be helpful in all cases of ill health no matter what the diagnosis.
Homeopathy as we know it today has been used for the past 200 years and was developed by a German Physician called Samuel Hahnemann, but the principle behind Homeopathy is 2,500 years old. The word Homeopathy comes from the Greek and means ‘similar suffering’. This refers to the central philosophy that a substance that can produce symptoms in a healthy person, can alleviate those symptoms in a person who is ill.
How does it work?
For instance, we know that when cutting a strong onion, we often experience a runny nose, sore throat and stinging, runny eyes. For a patient who is suffering from the common cold, or even hay fever, with these particular symptoms, a homeopath may prescribe Alium Cepa (the homeopathic remedy made from the red onion). The way of similars, the homeopathic way, is to give the patient a minute dose of a substance, which, if taken in its crude form, would produce those symptoms in a healthy person. Because of the minute dosage, no side effects or addiction will result. Hence it is also safe in infancy or pregnancy, where your Physician has decided that conventional drugs might be dangerous or inadvisable.
A Homeopath’s job is to match a remedy to your symptoms as you experience them. He/she will be interested in finding out not only about your physical health but also about your emotional well being. Symptoms are the body’s way of warning that all is not well and attempting to restore balance.
Treatment will be given usually in the form of tablets, but may come in powder or liquid form. It should be allowed to dissolve in your mouth and nothing else should be taken orally for 15 minutes before and after taking the remedy.
How do Homeopathic Remedies Interact with Other Medications?
Homeopathic remedies are safe and will not interfere with other forms of treatment. This is because only a very minute amount of the active ingredient is used in a specially prepared form.
How long is a Course of Treatment?
Generally this depends on what sort of illness you have. A very slowly developing complaint will not disappear overnight, but other complaints like acute illnesses may improve rapidly. Generally, in chronic disease we expect to see some significant improvement within the first month.
People who have had homeopathic treatment generally find that their state of health and well being has improved. They may be better able to resist infection and have a greater stability and individual purpose in life. These improvements surely are real steps toward optimum health.
