Why choose Homeopathy
The aim of homeopathy, which was discovered in 1796 by Dr Samuel Hahenneman, is to stimulate the body’s own ability to heal itself. When the appropriate remedy is matched and given to the patient, the body is stimulated to work in harmony where it hasn't. As a form of medicine and therapy, homeopathy is safe for use by everyone, including young children and babies as well as pregnant women and the elderly.
Homeopathy stimulates our self healing
I graduated as a certified homeopath in 1995 from The Israeli College for Homeopathy and completed the Dynamis School of Advanced homeopathic medicine in 2002.
I practiced as a homeopath at the Complementary Medicine Center of Clalit Health Services for four years while running my own private clinic. During this time I also served on the board of the Israeli Society for Classical Homeopathy.
Since moving to Cambridge in 2002, I continued to promote homeopathy at many levels – through conferences and seminars, mentoring, teaching and writing. I am co-author of the mental qualities repertory “Q-Rep” with Jeremy Sherr and published articles in the journals of the English and Israeli associations for homeopathy alongside coordinates international homeopathic projects with leading homeopaths around the world.
Since 2017 I established a second practice in Bristol (Gloucester Rd) while continuing my usual work Tuesday to Thursday at my Cambridge practice.

In a homeopathic consultation, the focus is on the symptoms the patient finds detrimental to their health and sense of well-being. I will normally ask questions about the patient’s lifestyle and general state of health. The goal of the consultation is to identify the remedy that most appropriately matches both the particular patient’s symptoms and general state of health.
The initial consultation lasts an hour and a half to two hours. It is followed by a 45 minute to an hour session 4-6 weeks later.
Further intervals between follow-up consultations are chosen between one consultation to the next, as suitable for the patient.
In the follow-up appointment, I will assess any changes in health. Using this information I will draw up a plan for the patient’s ongoing treatment.
Between consultations, the patient is suggested to record any changes observed. This will help me assess in the next consultation if modifications need to be made to the treatment plan. Patients are encouraged to use email, voicemail or phone conversations to keep me updated in any case it's needed between consultations.
