Background in Healthcare

For over twenty years, I have had the privilege of helping patients and clients from a broad spectrum of backgrounds. Their needs have been diverse and often complex. In order to serve them well, I have continually updated my knowledge and widened my qualifications to embrace a broad spectrum of treatment methods.

I graduated as a consultant trichologist from the Institute of Trichologists in London and qualified in the disciplines of Cymatics and Bio-sonic Therapeutics, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy and Counselling. I also obtained a Doctorate in Cymatic and Bio-energetic Medicine and an MD(MA) from the Open International University for Complementary Medicines. Following the great loss of my very special friend and partner, Dr Robert Ross Gibson in 1994, I added to my armamentarium the disciplines of Allergy and Environmental Therapy, Kinesiology, Phytotherapy and Meridian Energy Techniques.

For my contribution to scientific advancement and its benefits for humanity, I have been conferred both an honorary Doctorate of Science by the Open International University for Complementary Medicines and Life Membership of Medicina Alternativa Institute. For service to humanity I have been awarded Order of Excellence by the World Organisation of Natural Medicine and bestowed the title of Dame by the Sovereign Order of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights Hospitallers. I am also a member of the Royal Institute of Public Health.
