Elaine lives in Ledbury in Herefordshire. Although her practice is based there she also works in Malvern and Hereford and offers Skype or Zoom appointments to patients who cannot travel or wish to be treated online.
After completing a law degree and qualifying as a solicitor Elaine worked in the legal profession for many years then retrained as a freelance proofreader and copy editor. Along the way she also studied at the British School of Reflexology and spent several years working as a sole practitioner in Devon.
Elaine is a graduate of the School of Homeopathy in Stroud and holds their Practitioner Advanced Diploma in Homeopathy (UK). In her homeopathy practice she works in accordance with a strict Code of Practice and has full professional insurance cover. Patients describe her as friendly, approachable and easy to talk to. If they need to discuss their treatment plan or have any queries or concerns she is always ready to answer questions or offer guidance and support.
In her homeopathy clinic Elaine provides a safe, confidential space where patients can feel heard, understood and supported. Before the consultation begins she will usually spend a few moments talking about homeopathy and explaining how she works. What happens during the actual consultation is largely down to the patient. Although she asks questions, Elaine will never interrupt a patient or make them feel rushed or hurried. Every patient is allowed plenty of time to describe their symptoms and discuss anything else that is troubling them. At the end of the consultation a patient will often say something like, “I had forgotten all about that” or “Do you know, I haven’t spoken about that since I was a child”. Depending on the case, Elaine will sometimes talk to a patient about their colour preferences and use a colour chart to determine their favourite (and least favourite) colours.
Rather than prescribe a remedy straight away, Elaine prefers to analyse a patient’s case in detail and select a remedy with care. As a professional homeopath she will do her utmost to find the patient’s “simillimum” - i.e. the homeopathic remedy that most closely matches or “fits” the patient’s overall symptom picture and general level of health. If you would like to work with her, please use the contact form on this website or get in touch via email, telephone or Facebook. If you are interested in homeopathy but would like to know more, Elaine also offers a free 30 minute telephone consultation for prospective patients. Just send your email address and she will be in touch to arrange a suitable time and date.
