I studied English and Education at Cambridge University. I then worked with children with special needs - first as a teacher, then as a parent educator.
When my children were small, I trained as a homeopath with a view to managing their health needs. However my career took a U turn when I found homeopathy to be more effective than anything I had encountered in my previous profession. To start building the evidence, I embarked on research: a B.Sc in Homeopathy at Thames Valley University, where I conducted a literature review of the trials of Homeopathy for ADHD; a research M.Sc at Goldsmiths University conducting a Case series of 20 children with ADHD treated homeopathically for a year each; and a PhD at the University of Sheffield where I conducted a pragmatic randomised clinical trial.
I have been honoured to be made a fellow of the Society of Homeopaths for my research contributions.
Homeopathic treatment of children with neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD and autism.
Behavioural and emotional problems in children and teenagers.
'Never been well since' problems.
Embedding patient evaluations of the effectiveness of homeopathy into every day practice (https://www.makingcasescount.org/asd)
I use anything that works and persevere until things improve.
I believe strongly that there is a solution to most things, and that we are doing the best we can in the circumstances we find ourselves in. The job of homeopathic treatment is to understand what might be out of kilter, and work with people towards a more balanced, happier path. Prescribing an appropriately matching homeopathic remedy can address imbalances and trigger us to re-balance ourselves.
My goal is to facilitate the development of healthy, flexible, happy children and adults so they can enjoy the opportunities around them

"We chose to see Philippa because of her specialism and we have not been disappointed. Philippa's wealth of knowledge on the matter of ADHD, and her warm and positive nature made it easy to build rapport with and confide in her, and I trust her implicitly...
The remedies that Philippa prescribed for our daughter have had a positive impact on her behaviour, and there has definitely been a boost of confidence, which she needed so much.
I recommend Philippa wholeheartedly."
